I have been really swamped with a multitude of tasks, but I was finally able to take a moment and catch up with ordinary weekend activities, i.e., reading my enormous pile of fine art, fashion, and trade periodicals.
Thankfully the abundant mountain of glossies has vanished, as there were heavy moments of weeding out what was actually relevant and important. But, I had a fun time creating collages and tearsheets for art projects as I listened to old records. It was also a temporary pastime for a rainy day, as I sorted out bins and drawers full of other crafty notions.
I am working on several new accessory projects, which also inspired my jewellery selections for this outfit some time ago. Dainty chains and crosses have been a favourite of mine, even since my teens—I wore punk styled jewellery and cross styles always came into the picture.
So far, my favourite pieces from the Born Pretty store that I have worn are my watches, the crown pendant, and this silver cross necklace. It’s so unique and I almost want another cross to be dangling somewhere in the middle of the two (which I might add later on). I liked a few of these rings, but the other pieces were very small and some just weren't practical for wearing all day.
I decided to wear this body chain doubling-up with the silver twin cross necklace. Even though one style is silver and one has a gold colour, I wanted to wear them both just to show them together. Although, it took a bit to carefully put on, I will likely wear the body chain separately in the future.
