Blue Ackermann * Blue Vintage

I loved all the blue silhouettes in Haider Ackermanns fall winter 2011 collection. It inspired me to look for some beautiful blue gems for the shop.

Bye Liz

She had a love affair with jewelry, 
she was a great actress, 
she collected millions for AIDS research
She lived and partied like the best of them 
and now she's gone

Rest in peace Liz Taylor

Lady of the rings

I'm in search of the perfect summer ring at the moment. I just bought a beautiful Trifari knot ring, but my ring craving isn't over yet.

I've also been eying the gems made by the ladies of Beadycats a great Etsy shop, based in Istanbul Turkey. I especially like the rings with three stones like this one:

Of course I could also keep this lovely black and goldtone ring by Avon, which is for sale in my own MooiVintage shop on Etsy. But I hope to make someone else happy with it.

And then there's British jewelry designer Jade Mellor. Just looking at her work makes me happy. Stylish, bold and in cool colours. And correct if I'm wrong, but I believe they are screaming my name;-)

Color blocking

I'm usually not much of an avid fashion trend follower. I walk to the beat of my own drum...but there is one current trend that I will follow like a true fashion stalker: colorblocking.

If you're a reader of fashion glossies then you must have seen the Jill Sander SS 2011 ready to wear collection. I know I'm the millionth person to blog about this, but it took my breath away. This summer will all be about colourblocks for me. I realised I wear an awful lot of more! In my shop I always love to upload vintage jewelry with one or two colours. Some of it mixes really well with the Jill silhouettes.
