McQueen. C'est tout.

Recently, I purchased this Alexander McQueen ring  -  made of gold-tone brass, enamel, and Swarovski crystals  -   as a sort of "well-done-for-working-all-summer-and-not-killing-anybody" present to myself:



It cost too much, it was utterly frivolous, and now I won't be able to afford food for a while, but hey, that's fashion. The important thing is that I love it and will wear it for years to come, and with pretty much anything to boot. Some of the people I know hate the ring because they think it's too morbid, but the conflation of death and nature in all its beauty in the ring strikes me as a celebration of life rather than an obsession with death.

Iridescence is hot.

Today was my last day at Kabiri in Selfridges, but I haven't left the brand empty-handed. The other day, I purchased a souvenir of my time working with the brand in the form of this Fred Butler iridescent hair slide:



I just think that this is the coolest piece, as well as something that you just don't find in Topshop, which is always a plus when buying jewellery. I'll be wearing it for the Vogue Fashion's Night Out on 8th September.
