Last Friday, hoping to find an outfit for that evening, I made a flying visit to Topshop in Oxford Circus. Having chosen a cute outfit, I ran upstairs to the bedazzling section – better known as the jewellery dept. – to find some pieces that would help jazz up my little combi. Now, one thing I love about Topshop is their love and passion for promoting smaller concessions by stocking their designs and giving them the opportunity to reach a wider market. The British brand Orelia is a fine example of this, and their pieces are divine. Focusing on petit jewellery designs that come in both gold and silver, Orelia pieces are perfect for adding a small yet substantial addition to any outfit. These are some pieces that caught my eye during my trip last Friday – the Hayden necklace being my absolute favourite!

As one of this seasons most prominent trends, opulent baroque designs are big, bold and back. Likewise, the big boys are doing them well. Dolce and Gabbana, one of Italy’s most luxarious fashion brands, first showcased their desire to lead the ‘baroque boom’ with their dazzlingly, vibrant runway designs earlier this year during Milans Fashion Week.

You too may have seen ‘This Weeks; Spot On’ post last Wednesday; Selena Gomez looked like a dream in another baroque design that was also brought to us by D&G. With high street taking to opulent baroque, there is no reason for you not to indulge in this seasons most prominent trend. Just remember your golds, blacks, heavily embroidered designs and you are good to go!
