WHILE DECKING OUT IN SPARKLES FROM H2T HAS ALWAYS BEEN OUR GO-TO RULE DURING THE FESTIVE SEASON, THIS TIME WE’RE KEEPING IT SIMPLE AND LETTING STRONG ACCESSORIES DO THE TALKING.
“I’ve been looking for a pair of glitzy earrings that’s not too girlie nor edgy and I think I’ve just found them! Being fully embellished from hoop to tassel with sheer and coloured stones in different shapes, these bold earrings are not only fitting for formal occasions but for casual too. While they seem a little OTT, balancing out the mood with a simple top and bottom without any other jewellery gives the earrings the opportunity to provide all the sparkle you need. Warning: they may turn heads!”

“I’m easily drawn to anything embroidered in sequins and beads, especially in floral patterns. So when I saw this slingback pump, I was immediately fixated on it! It’s got a bohemian and The Great Gatsby flair combined into one and goes perfectly well with the wrap dress here. What’s even better is that it comes in a slingback design to flatter my feet even more and a low block heel so that I don’t have to worry about tripping over when I’m dancing the night away!” 2 BEADED SLINGBACK PUMP, GUCCI
“One look at this dreamy wrap dress and I get vintage-luxe vibes instantly! The V-neckline, fitted cuffs and flowy silhouette of this silk-blend dress remind me of the ones women in Hollywood would wear back in the day. As if the two shades of burgundy weren’t enough to pique my interest (I’ve always been a fan of the hue), I love how the peek-a-boo blue on the strap adds a surprising pop of colour to the dress, making it even more alluring. And with a dress this minimal, bold or dainty jewellery works well either way – it just depends on how you like it!”

You’d usually see me in a black and gold combo during Christmas but this year, I’m stepping out of my comfort zone and going with something a little more colourful!
