While we’re on the topic of earrings and quirky themes of jewelry, it seems appropriate to bring Betsey Johnson into the conversation.
Although her brand filed for bankruptcy, she is still overseeing her jewelry and I couldn’t be happier. Not only is it affordable, she has truly unique, fun design ideas unlike anyone I have seen.
Yes I did add a sneaky ring, but who can deny themselves of a party skull with fruit on it’s head?! Fantastic!
And yes we have discussed my love of any fashion resembling food. I would have to say this is the reason my favourite of this selection of jewelry is the pineapple drop earrings.
Insects and other animals are also wonderful. How cute are the little hippo heads! That is not a question.
Visit my Polyvore to track down these glorious works of art.
Please note: the fun doesn’t stop there. Check out ShopStyle to see a full selection of Betsey’s jewelry including rings, bracelets, necklaces and watches.
Happy Monday! I am sick at home today so I hope your day has been nicer than mine. x

I call this one “How I Would Be Dressed Right Now
If My Bank Account So Permitted”.
Originally this set was going to be a compilation of all my “recently viewed” items on farfetch.com however Polyvore is very generous so the situation got a bit out of control.
Lately I haven’t been wearing jewelry except maybe the occasional necklace. Maybe it’s because of the fact that I’m bored of all the rings, bracelets and necklaces I’ve been piling on for the past years.
In recent weeks I have been really into the look of a casual shirt and fairly casual outfit with beautiful, big coloured crystal earrings.
Oh, to comfortably afford some Erickson Beamon.
Strongly recommend that perfume too.

Once upon a time, humans on this earth came to a realisation that the Sun’s rays have an impact on skin cells, particularly that of the facial region. One wise being made the decision to create a garment that would in fact cause the sun to refrain from burning the human face by constructing something that could sit on one’s head and stick out in a manner that would not obstruct the person’s view, but in fact obstruct the sun from reaching the skin and having any effect on it. This day, the Hat was born.
Years later, it is not uncommon to see human beings wearing cap hats backwards, or even sideways, for no particular reason. Humans now wear caps indoors, at night, when the sun’s not out, or simply as a fashion statement stemming from sub-cultures such as hip-hop, skate, grunge, punk or, well anything. The Cap became an accessory.
That’s not to say that this post is about the sport luxe trend. I’ve put in a bunch of
images below, including some from the Insight blog. They have an awesome laidback,
beachy vibe. I really think hats can just be fun. And since we now can wear our hats at
free will for no other reason other than having something on our heads, take a look
at these bad boys!
Clockwise from top left: Adidas. Adidas is definitely my favourite sportswear label. This would look great with denim or black. (Adidas, $22)
Nickelodeon baseball cap. How great is Squidward! What a guy! P.s. this also comes with a Patrick face version, or a classic Spongebob Squarepants face. (Kinda want all three) (Nickelodeon, $28)
Dope snapback from Stampd’ LA. Once upon a time I saw someone wearing this on an Instagram photo and I said I MUST HAVE THIS. Googled it, still hasn’t been re-stocked. Shall keep waiting. Apparently last time it sold out in 24 hours or something. (Disclaimer: I am in no way advocating girls wearing skate hats if they do not know anything about the label and/or skating). (Stampd’ LA, $52)
Disney cap. Purely put this up because it’s a Mickey Mouse Sorcerer’s Apprentice hat. Seriously do you know anyone that’s got one of these? (Disney, £23)
Boy London cap. Iconic. Rihanna was seen wearing one and it pretty much sold out worldwide. (Patricia Field, $58)
Navy and white cap, Zillion Caps. This was designed by Tokyo based, Paris designer David Guarino. This would work well blending in with other prints or block colour looks. Look at the website, there are so many great caps, they are sick! Guarino has translated Japanese kimono patterns into loads of different caps. Awesome stuff. (Design Boom, $59)
River Island Aztec print cap. Same deal, and it’s not too bold of a print if you’re the kind of person who likes to play it cool. (River Island, £4)
Finally, the neon cap, shining in the centre like a beacon of hope, a sun beam of sorts. Why not? (Asos, $25)
