Mix Recipe – Amorous + Edgey

Romantic, yet fierce

She is playful and fierce and self-possessed – playful like a candy-flavoured cocktail with a very decided kick to it.  Sweet – yes.  Delicate – no.  This mix of bangles and bracelets speaks to the inner romantic in us all – without being overly fussy.

Pairing up elements that remind you of a scene from a corset drama . . .  elements like lace, ruffles, pearls, silks, ribbons are perfect.  All of these textures evoke a sense of softness, touch-able-ness and work perfectly for setting a flirty tone.

For adding to this set, you can:

~ grab a pearl necklace and wrap it several times around your wrist – this adds a luxurious element.

~ a coloured ribbon tied in a little bow around your wrist is also perfect – playing up a delicate, lady-like feel.

~ layer with your favourite timepiece/watch – this balanced out the fun with a very business like element.

~  leather plays well with the romantic look – it plays up your uniqueness and adds credibility and an industrial look to all that sweetness.
