Though I’ve been on the lookout for great fashion finds — clothes and shoes — while I’m here in Australia, I can’t help but check out all the gorgeous accessories as well. I shouldn’t be surprised, really. All the trips I’ve done to the place, I ALWAYS end up bringing home fabulous accessory finds. I reckon it’s due to this notion that options here are different from the ones I’d see back in Manila. Well, I’m sure most travelers like me would shop for the pieces that we wouldn’t find back home. That rationale is more sensible, methinks. But I admit that I do fall prey to gravitating towards familiar brands; though it will depend on the main motivating factor in a particular shopping activity. Thoughts?
Anyway, I resolved — though I will essentially buy the items under the usual categories: apparel, shoes, accessories, bags, etc — that I’ll endeavour to buy from different shops. I’ve regularly shopped in accessory shops here like: Diva and Equip, plus checked out accessory racks at some of the usual Oz fashion stores like: Sportsgirl, Valleygirl, Portmans, Witchery, and yea, even checked out Target, haha. It’s a good thing that I keep encountering new stores to check out. Case in point, subject of this post: a couple of accessories from Fever which I got from a little fashion boutique in Westfield Marion, Hotline.
Statement Necklace – Hotline; Studs – Target; Top – Cotton On
It was this necklace that had me on autopilot. It was something I’ve never owned or worn. It’s a little too shiny silver for my taste but I welcome the challenge of styling it in, or perhaps build on it. I’m also worried that it’ll get tarnished quickly since I’m acidic but I’m hoping I’d get to wear it a few times before it reaches a bin-worthy state. Shaking off this feeling of doom and gloom, I’ll simply focus on the excitement that the moment I’d get to pair it with an outfit brings. Soon!
Earrings – Hotline; Necklace – Lee Hwa Jewelry; Studs – Target; Top – Cotton On
Did I mention that the store had a sale going on that day I visited? Well, they did and I’m happy, haha. Esp when I spotted this adorable dangling earring with its uniqueness seen with an extra strand attached to the lobe lock at the back which gives it a different rendition of a multi-strand set. I can totally see myself wearing this on night outs. <3
Best bit: I got both for only AUD$ 20.00 (roughly around Php 860.00). I forget how much each cost but if we average it, each will only amount to Php 430.00. I reckon that's not bad, actually, it's a good bargain!
Looking back to the stuff I've bought so far, it brings me to think about my present style mood. I know there's an underlying unifying preference but I still can't put my finger on it. I'll let you know if I figure it out. Anyway, there are a few more accessories I'd like to share with you folks but I'll save that for another day.
What sort of accessories are you wearing lately?
P.S. Earrings and Statement Necklace are sold separately.
