18 year old handbag queen

 

"Those unforgettable moments"
- Pandora 

I was 12 when I first discovered pandora bracelets in a local jewellery store. I always loved the idea of a bracelet full of memories, and since a young age always longed for a charm bracelet like my mothers. But there was something I found even more beautiful and enchanting about  Pandora bracelets. They held the perfect combination of classic elegance, modern taste and simple everyday design. My mum told me I had to wait till my 18th birthday to have one, which at the age of 12 seemed forever away. And yet here I am, 18 already!! And as promised, with my perfect pandora bracelet. I was spoilt rotten by all my family and feel so incredibly lucky. My Auntie and Uncle gave me the silver bracelet and my Mum, Dad and sister picked out my very first bead for me.


Ever since I was a little girl my family has called me the 'Handbag Queen'. Even as a toddler I always felt the need accessorise every outfit with a bag (such a wise young thing).  So it was only fitting that my first bead resembled a mini pandora handbag. Pandora jewellery is beautifully made and I have been wearing this gorgeous thing everyday since my birthday!

Divergent inspired fashion pt 1: Abnegation & Dauntless

 

"We believe in ordinary acts of bravery, in the courage that drives one person to stand up for another"
- Veronica Roth, Divergent

Divergent  has officially hit New Zealand cinemas! We were feeling inspired and decided to put together two looks inspired by the movies. For those of you who haven't read the book or yet to have seen the movie, check out our previous post for a little review. The books follow a young girl named Tris through post apocalyptic Chicago where the society has been divided into five factions. Each faction has distinct role and personality. 

We have yet to see the movie, but decided to create these two outfits to inspired by what we read in the book about each faction. The first is Abnegation, the faction that values selflessness and service others. This is the faction that Tris is born in, and Ellen wears a simple dress and blouse in the faction's colour grey. Abnegation wear their hair pulled back and loose clothing so not to draw attention to themselves.  Tara wears an outfit inspired by the Dauntless faction. Dauntless are known to be brave and almost fearless. Their faction colour is black and they are known for their tattoos and piercings. Leather seemed perfect for representation of a dauntless character. 


How to get the Divergent look!

Ellen wears:
  • A blouse that you can button up to the collar. Get the look 
  • A pinafore style dress to wear over top your shirt. 
  • Frilly ankle socks paired with black lace up shoes. Get the look. 
Tara Wears:

Stay tuned for more outfits inspired by the Divergent book and let us know if you guys see the movie!
