Wear my heart on my...

So I had a good 5 hrs today to think about this blog, it was the slowest day at work, at my new job at sportsgirl! yep thats right if You have not heard! I hit up the big time graduating from David Jones hosiery to more resposinsiblities with in the fashion/retail sector and although I really love and always will love Sportsgirl, todays shift was the longest 5 hrs of my life!
Luckily I did not have to occupy myself with repacking hosiery (so long my delicately opaque friends), rather I was permitted to play with accessories: bangles bracelets, rings and earings!
There are some key pieces in sportsgirl this very moment if you dont mind me giving them a plug! Sportsgirl is bomhemian sheike, with a range of colourful leather strapping, plated chains, coins and symbolic pendants which look gorgous with the new maxis we have instore!
Not your cup of tea?
We also have (of course my favourite) Romantic vintage pieces heart pendants, pearls, lockets and vintage keys to go with floral dresses and crochet vest and lace tops love love love!!!

Anyways this accessories ecstasy that i was experiencing and yes im finally getting to the point is that i love bangles! Yep!Yep!Yep!
This new discovery has made me realise that i have negelected these precious pieces for many many years. The last time I ever got this excited about bangles was when I was 6 years old travelling up the coast on our annual holiday I fell asleep in the car and when I woke up I had a range of those indian inspired thin colourful bangles around my arm!My parents doing? I think not! It was Magic! Many years later their value has dwindled. They are one of the the first pieces I have chosen to dismiss in my outfits as an attempt to keep my outfit costs low!

But I have come to realise that these pieces are crucial to complimenting any outfit ! There is so much you can do with bangles and bracelets and im going to tell you the secret hidden with in these ordamental pieces!

The statement bangle/ bangles:
The amount of bangles that are acceptable to wear seems outrageous to me. It all seems to be about the clash and the more we can carry on our skinny wrists the better! The more colour pattern and textures the better! Such a statement can reveal ones creative, fun and flirty side.

The overstated bangle:
The size of some bandles today they seem to take up the entire arm. these beauties can dress up a plain one colour outfit and could be a key piece in directing ones eyes to the matchig pair of gorgeous statement shoes!
The minimal Bangle:
Maybe it s a pieces of leather strapping with a symbolic charm that takes your fancy and is symbolic to the memory/ special event shared between your closers friends? Maybe its a simple silver bangle given to you for your 21st or from your boy to remind you are loved!

The charm bracelet:
Of course we all love trinkets and keepsakes which remind you of the important people/times in you life why not wear them on your wrist!

Whatever takes your fancy, I encourage you to love these little darlings, take a new approach to your wardrobe mix it up and start with the accessories firsts have fun with them!
