this is the second post of my ingredient list and you will get to see some of my favorite – and in my opinion basic to every jewelry collection – bling pieces. this is not all “real” jewelry and most of it didn´t cost more than 10 euros (except for my pearls, they are all real and all gifted by lovely people).
but what all of these babies have in common is the classic touch. whenever i started blogging and reading a lot of blogs, i saw thousands of trendy statement necklaces, neon earrings and armparties everyday and i started shopping way too much because i thought i had to incorporate every single trend in my blog if i wanted to be part of this community. but after a while of blogging i came to realize that this is very dangerous and expensive shopping behavior, it leads nowhere, you chase trend after trend and you loose the sense for what is your own style. so i started reflecting on what i really need, what i really like and what i really dressed like before starting my own blog – and the answer is that i always find classic styles to be the most appealing. that is also why the neon earrings and all my other hip and trendy pieces eke a miserable existence at the dark bottom of my jewelry storage and my classic pieces are on current repeat again, because nothing is as beautiful as staying true to yourself.
