Shop my circle chain here
As most of you will know by now, Shopbop is one of my absolute favourite websites and one of the reasons I love it so much is that I’m constantly discovering new brands I love on it so I thought I would compile a few posts to introduce you to some of my favourite brands.
For the past few years I’ve been saying I’m going to stop buying high-street jewellery and instead invest in good quality pieces. The reality is, while high-street jewellery is of course very affordable, it’s essentially a complete waste of money when the gold tarnishes after a couple of months and rings turn your fingers green. Granted, some is wore than others – Topshop being one of the worst for tarnishing easily and H&M probably being the best – but, none are going to last a reasonable amount of time. I’ve been saying this for years but the magpie in me always seemed to still pick up a gold chain and packet of rings from time to time. However, I don’t think I’ve actually picked up any high street jewellery in the past year and I’ve decluttered my accessories for the most part.
I’ve since been investing in good quality jewellery and I honestly think it’s a far better way to spend your money – I’d prefer to spend €80 on a good quality bracelet than buy a bunch of high-street bracelets that are likely to discolour after a month or so. So with this in mind I went on the search for some jewellery brands and discovered Jennifer Zeuner on Shopbop last year and have been obsessed with her collection ever since. Some of her items are a pricey but some are very reasonable for gold.
I also recently discovered the brand Joie on Shopbop after falling in love with these grey suede ankle boots – here. They are pricey but again, I’ve gotten to the point where I’m more interested in buying quality over quantity and I only intend on buying one pair of boots this AW’16 season so there are most definitely in the running!
I also adore Shopbop’s Travel section Travel section which has a great selection of travel accessories and lovely gift ideas – check them out here. I love this Kate Spade passport holder – it would be a lovely gift for someone who is going travelling.
Don’t forget if you are ordering on Shopbop from Ireland or Europe you will have additional customs tax to pay however this will be added to your order at the checkout so you won’t have any surprises upon delivery!
Until next time,
