Pearly pretties.

Just a little gratuitous pretty things post. I don't spend so much time on etsy now as I used to, but I was talking to my mum today about the big veil debate (surprisingly for a mum shes against it because it wont suit my dress - and that's before I get started on what James thinks of the veiling I bought!) and it got me looking at 'hair things'. Aren't these pretty? they're made from single earrings, which I think is cute.

Speaking of earrings, James got me these for Christmas, which I've squirrelled away until the wedding. I'd been eyeing them up for while in a little jewellers in town. I know its weird, but the earrings are important to me. I wear big earrings a lot, they make me feel like me, so I knew I wanted to wear big dangly earrings that were just a bit more dressed up for the day, so I still feel like me. AN appalling photo, but meh. It's sunday.

  2. I don't do earrings I have a paranoia that they make my ears look big. But those ones are very pretty. I like the hairclips too - might need to look into getting me some of them. x

    and i'm so glad you're wearing big earrings to feel like yourself on your wedding day - don't they say that your wedding day should be the day you look just like yourself but at the best you've ever looked before. something like that anyway....i think what i'm trying to say is that i love you're sticking with what makes you you.
    i'm scrapping the usual natural bride nonsense - i wear 60s makeup at my best, big smokey eyes with bouffant hair - so thats what i'm going for on my wedding day too......:0)

  8. I love the hairclips - so pretty. And very wedding-y, if that makes sense.

    I'm embarrassed to admit that I'm 28 years old, and never had my ears pierced. I'd feel a bit silly going into Claire's Accessories (the only place I can think of that does ear piercing) and waiting in a line of 12 year olds. So I can't bring myself to do it!!

  9. Those hair clips are absolutely gorgeous - and because they're recycled earrings, you can be sure not everyone will have the same ones - perfect!
