Ok, this trend is anything but new especially not after everybody blogging about it and after Erin Wasson has been photographed in her body chain to death. But I still like the idea of some unusual jewellery that can spice up a monochromatic or plain outfit. Sometimes one just needs a statement piece (when a simple silver necklace or big hoop earrings won't be enough).
I saw the various body chains and wraps on blisslau.com and was instantly intrigued. Unfortunately most of the items were out of my price range with $250 and up. I saw Wasson insprired chains on Etsy as well but still not quite what I was looking for. So I almost gave up on the idea until I came across ebay seller sisters*fashion. She has a couple of other Wasson inspired items (think shredded shirts) on ebay too so make sure to check out her items. The chain up for sale was exactly what I was looking for and with a great price too so I just had to buy it and didn't regret it ever since.
Here's how I wear my body chain - with a pretty plain shirt or top most of the time. I think key is to dress down because it can look trashy or tacky easily. I also like the idea of hiding part of the chain under a button down shirt (and leaving the top buttons open). I'll try that some time.
After the long winter season and a lot of rain and cold weather it seems like spring has finally arrived in this part of the world (better late than never). I looked through my closet and noticed tons of black and dark grey clothes. I'm not someone to wear bright photographic flower pieces but I figured some lighter colors and flutter dresses couldn't hurt to have in my closet (I'd still wear them with opaque tights though).
I came across this drop crotch t-shirt dress by Preen and can see it working its way into my wardrobe. It's actually not quite my style but I like the light fabric, color and the frilly skirt. The slightly loose oversized t-shirt look is also very much in style at the moment. I'll probably wear a cardi over or long sleeve shirt under it when it's too chilly.
Now I just hope spring is here to stay so I don't have to go back to black.
