If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you may have noticed that I’m not much of an “accessorizer”.
Sure, I’ll throw some flowers in my hair, or the occasional pearl something or other on my neck/wrist/etc, but for the most part I’m a simple chick. Reason being, I simply prefer spending money on pretties of the clothing persuasion. Whatever my feelings on accessories, I don’t let that stop me from browsing!
I’ve been following Oh Darling Jewelry on Instagram for quite some time. I’ve always enjoyed their wares–subtle and beautiful pop culture and Disney-inspired necklaces, bracelets and keychains. I love the idea of being able to sport something childhood related without looking childish! Timber (the creative mind and driving force behind Oh Darling) puts together pieces that are both fun and sophisticated.
Recently, Oh Darling Jewelry had an Instagram flash sale. A number of her pieces were discounted, and shipping was included in the price! On a whim, I bit the bullet and ordered two pieces that caught my eye. An Alice in Wonderland inspired bangle, and a Mary Poppins inspired bangle.
SERIOUSLY, GUYS. OBSESSED. This gets the Nanny Stamp Of Approval.
If I were asked to name my top three favorite Disney movies of all time, Alice and Mary are, respectively, numbers one and two. (Followed shortly by Beauty and The Beast, of course!) Also, my recent shopping binge landed me with two new gorgeous (and appropriately coordinating) Jenny skirts from Pinup Girl Clothing.
Between Stephanie Buscema’s beautiful re-imagination of Alice’s journey through Wonderland, and the beautiful Umbrella print directly from the estate of the fabulous Mary Blair, it was like a match made in heaven.
The bangles are fully adjustable, and beautifully made. Forever the Queen of losing things, I double checked the fastenings for the charms, and they are steadfast! They are handmade, and if it tickles your fancy–customizable! In all, I am over the moon about my new purchase–not a lick of buyer’s remorse here! In fact, now that I’ve opened the floodgates, I can’t stop myself from drooling over some of the other offerings.
Here are a few of my favorites:
And did you think I’d forgotten Beauty?!
I can not stress enough how happy I am with my purchase from Oh Darling Jewelry. It was a fabulous start to my accessory-shopping journey, and I will definitely be adding more pieces to my budding collection!
