Hailes Hearts Bobby Glam Vintage Jewellery

I am such an indecisive person. I think everything through to the extreme. There are only a few areas in life that the term 'indecisive' doesn't apply to me. So when Bobby Glam asked me to do a product review and pick my favourites I spent a good hour browsing through the vintage jewellery section trying deciding what I liked best. I finally managed to narrow it down 5 beautiful things. I quickly began to plan outfits and hairstyles around each piece because each, is such a statement. Above are the items I chose, alongside the simple but glamorous pink packaging they came in. There are: the bow earrings, the rabbit studs, the bicycle pendant, the fox ring and the golden leaf head band. Below is how I wore them! (WARNING: Large photos of my face!)

The Ring.

Shy Fox Double Ring - £14
This double ring caught my eye immediately. I love the unique fox design and how the off gold colour really transforms this into a real statement piece. The ring is sturdy, comfortable and fashion forward. Such a great accessory! Perfect for the Summer. 

The Necklace.

Vintage Bicycle Necklace - £19
You may have noticed a theme through out this post. I love vintage style, novelty jewellery! This isn't just a plain necklace - it adds so much to an outfit. I've teamed it with so many different styles and it is such a versatile piece. I also have a lot of love for old fashion bicycles - sadly they cost a good few hundred pounds so this was more than a perfect substitute and a lot easier to take away with me during my travels.

The Hair Band.

Antiqued Greek Goddess Hair band- £22
I love really feminine pieces of jewellery so when I saw this headband I knew it was ideal for me. Like the fantasist I am, my mind drifted to a beautiful Greek goddess in a long flowing white maxi dress standing at the top of Mount Olympus, golden hair blowing in the warm breeze (a girl can dream...). I love hair accessories and thought this off gold colour would really compliment my auburn hair. It sits well and is actually really comfortable although I always find I have to re-position these bands because they put a bit of pressure behind my ears. This hair band adds instant style to my hair. 

The Earrings.

Pearl Encrusted Bow Earrings - £9
Ever since I got my ears pierced 9 years ago, I have been obsessed with earrings! Similarly an obsession with pearls also escalated. These earrings are great because they can be worn casually or dressed up really easily. They aren't too heavy and sit really well but most importantly, the look so cute, right?

Magician's Rabbit In Hat Stud Earrings - £8
As mentioned, I have a little obsession with earrings. As well as a growing collection of animal related jewellery it appears! Animal novelty is a growing trend in Fashion at the moment as we have seen splashed across recent Fashion Weeks. Feathers are everywhere, owls hanging around many a neck in the country and animal clothing hitting the streets. These earrings really inspired my approach to this shoot and are the perfect company for a cute Spring/Summer sun-dress.

My outfit.

I decided to wear a cute, brightly coloured and printed tea dress teamed with a cropped, fitted black cardigan. Like usual, I styled my hair messy and kept my make-up simple with a hint of colour to tie in with my dress. I wanted my outfit and this post to have a vintage urban feel - a mash-up of styles because that is my look and what I like to wear.

Let me know what you think of the pieces I bought! Which was your favourite?!

firstly I have to mention I really like the photos and the colours you've chosen. job well done! ;)
and secondly of course the jewellery which is wonderful!! I'm such a sucker for earrings and especially the ones with all kind of special themes like animals :P you've chosen absolutely amazing pieces!
btw, when it comes to hair bands I can't wear those for a very long time because my head starts to hurt and it always happens, no matter how expensive or inexpensive the head band is..

The hair band and the earrings are my favorites. You look really pretty in this outfit. The dress suits you very well and I like that you added a cropped cardi it gives a very cute effect.

Ooh, I am in love with the headband! Want it looks so ethereal and woodland creature like (my fave look, haha). Love the floral dress too, it really suits you...I want to say it goes well with your hair, but that sounds a bit weird! Still, it does. Great post :) xx
