Charmed, I'm Sure

Twenty8Twelve dress. Marc by Marc Jacobs slip. Linea Pelle belt. Charm necklace. Vintage rhinestone & poison (a souvenir from my sister’s trip to Egypt) rings. Ribbed tights. Miu Miu shoes.
Accessories transform a look... This tiered belt blooms with fantastical nasturtiums, a candyland species unlikely to be found on earth. My necklace is a glorious hodgepodge of various chains & trinkets (including knight/leaf/pearl wreath brooches, a lucky penny & an etched glass pendant). The necklace's tag dedicates it to “the magical & modern gypsy” - she's who I yearn to be. This poison ring was a birthday present from my sister: the silver dome is topped with a turquoise peak & hinges open to reveal a crevice for poisonous powder/pills. The ring's shape is reminiscent of a minaret (a spire topped with a conical crown commonly found on Islamic mosques), which is fitting since it's from Egypt.

  2. I love the layers of necklaces, and they work really well against the dress.
