Lovely, Gaudy Sparkles

Lesson One in Life According to Dolly: All rhinestones, all the time.

Lesson Two in Life According to Dolly: More is always more.

She is so wise...

My life really needs more sparkle, preferably some from Parisian Shourouk Rhaiem's eponymous jewellery brand. Shourouk makes lovely, gaudy sparkly things that I want. A lot. Her stuff-explosion look is right up my street. As much as I enjoy minimalism in theory, on other people's bodies and in other people's houses, I am a maximalist at heart. I love how she combines styles from different eras, different textures and cuts, neons and fabrics. So glittery and hypnotic and nice...

I don't have anything useful to say. The winning combination of a bad cold and bad hay fever means that my brain is 100% snot at the moment and 0% intelligent thought. This jewellery is pretty and I like it.

Inspiration comes when you least expect it though. I'll have to make a note so I don't forget - pop to village chemist, buy a lurid glasses holder/cord/thing, affix vintage rhinestone brooch, proudly wear natty new necklace about town. Wisdom from the mouths of babes (and the vaguely unwell).
