Sparkly Creatures

Anyone who has spoken to me for more than about 5 minutes know that I like things that sparkle. Quite a lot in fact. Seeing as I am on a serious saving plan at the moment (read between the lines as upcoming Melbourne shopping spree!)- my purchasing rate of new things to post up on frockstar has slowed down pretty drastically. Thought it was a good opportunity to run with a couple of jewellery posts.

The first 2 sparkly creatures were actually purchased on my last shopping trip to Melbourne. Almost a year ago in fact. They were bought from a make shift store in a tiny arcade that was floor to ceiling sparkly brooches. Sensory overload ensued. About 20 minutes later I finally managed to find 2 that I deemed as the best- and walked out a very happy girl.

The peacock is actually a lot more stunning in real life. I found it quite hard to get a good pic of it. It is a perfect bird shaped cluster of blue, green and pink sparkles with an added feature of a red eye.

The owl is a little more simple- and actually has some personality I think. (in that weird way that any inanimate object can of course) I had a brief but productive flirting with Owls that week. I bought a great hoodie with an Owl on the front as well. I love the contrast of the blue and orange together. Always a winning combo in my books.

The spider has always been a favourite of mine. I love the way the light catches the bulbous body. It is an interesting shade of charcoal grey- which isn't always a colour synonymous with sparkly things.

This last one is not a creature at all- but is extra sparkly so I thought I could still fit it into this post. It actually came from the $2 shop of all places. I love the colour combination of turquoise, white, red and green coloured stones in a floral circular setting. This brooch works really well with a lot of different outfits with that colour combo!

P.s- sorry for the long stretch of no posts! I will make it up to you. I promise.
