TrimmingsAndLace For Swarovski : A Sparkle A Time









A woman and her love for jewellery can never really be summed up in words, let alone contained. From the time she watches her mother adorn her treasures to dreaming of dressing up in heirlooms. From the inherent consciousness of collecting and savouring her jewellery pieces to stopping at those large, inviting display windows...woman and her love for jewellery wasn't really meant to be put into words, let alone contained.

Earlier this month I collaborated with Swarovski to style a look for this party season. I have always been a huge fan and an admirer of Swarovski crystals and jewellery. The finesse with which a simple piece of glass is so beautifully maneuvered to create something this delicate, is a form of unmatched art and skill. To celebrate this association and the timeless Swarovski appeal, I knew I had to save this look for the last. When it came to my outfit, I went ahead with the classic bling. If you are someone who prefers a look that is comfortable, easy and an extention to your personal favourites, the best is to stick to the classics. Doing so, leaves room for experimentation in jewellery, accessories and make-up. And that's pretty much what I did with this look. You can wear these pieces on their own, layer them or mix them to create a balanced look. I am sure you'll agree when I say that they'll look beautiful and appealing in every way. To balance the modern silhouette of the dress and giving in to old world charm, I added elements like this faux fur cape (Gifted by my grandmother, but never worn. This is for her) and did my lips in classic red. For the eyes I tried the Hollywood glam winged-eye (similar).

Now for the good bit. I need no Swarovski, said no woman ever. This year has been so overwhelming for me, in more ways than one. I feel I can never thank any of you enough for the love and support you have given this little endeavour of mine. If you are the one who is a regular reader of my blog, the one who likes and comments regularly or the one who never does but also never fails to stop by, I express my sincerest gratitude.

  1. I would like to wear this Spectacular Collar Necklace from Swarovski with my red maxi dress with silver details, black sandals and one amazing black clutch

  2. I would style this piece with a Leather tight fit pant and a shimmery Crop top. Also I would go for a shimmer cut-out high heels. Orange coral lipstick and smokey eye makeup will hit best for the bold chic look. Ending up with Swarovski jewellery to complete my look. 😊

  5. Hello miss :)
    I would love to pair this piece with a white furry sweater (as it would be cold outside :p)

  6. I would love to style these beautiful bracelets with my new Black Tube Maxi Dress that I have bought for New Year. The reason I'm choosing a neutral color like black is because the bracelets are so elegant and shimmery I want them (the bracelets) to grab all the attention (after all its Swarovski ;)) and not my will work just fine for this agenda! :)
