Wrapped in Chains
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.
