Go for GennySleevles Blue Lame Pencil Dress and Ben-AmunCasablanca Coin Statement Earrings and Classic Gold Spiral Bangle.

P.S. Gina’s draped sleeping gown is something!

Modern designers have to take a lesson “how to make a naked dress” from Ralph Jester, who created costumes for miss Lollobrigida.

Jayne Mansfield’ big earrings

Want to add some old good Hollywood glamour to your look? Go for glittering chandelier earrings like red hot movie star Jayne in Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter? (1957).

Jayne’s character dazzels in tassel earrings on massage table, doesn’t she?

So take tips from Ms. Mansfield and wear tassels with bath towel to seduce your special one or with cocktail dress to charm everyone around you.

Here are some options to check.

Next‘ Silver Tone Sparkle Drop Earrings, Ben-Amun‘ gold plated Seville Nights Geo Stone Tassel Earrings оand Kate Spade‘ black Full Flowerish Statement Tassel Earrings are definitely cute.

Personally I think earrings with dark pearls like In2design Baroque Earrings – Gold/Peacock is a better choice for girls with long blond hair. And In2design Baroque Earrings – Silver/White Baroque is a perfect option for brunettes and blondies with short hair.

Ear Cuffs Are The Partygoers Best Friends

Big Earrings (high jewellery or bijou, it doesn’t matter) is a perfect choice for party queens – they immediately draw attention to your face and add chic and charm to your outfit.

But don’t tryst my words blindly, have a look at beautiful Jeanne Crain in Dangerous Crossing (1953).

Handmade Marty Magic‘ ear cuffs look quite and quirky and don’t cost a fortune.

I like Spider Ear Wrap with Garnet Silver, Octopus Ear Cuff – Bronze, Comet Ear Wrap – Silver and Throne Dragon Ear Wrap – Bronze.

Indian women are wearing ear cuffs for centuries, so Indian jewellers definitely had enough time to perfect their skills in making big earrings.

Suhani Pittie – the favorite brand of Bollywood stars – offers a good selection of ear pieces.

Avant Garde Golden Leaves Earcuffs (left) and Rose Gold Swirl Ear Cuffs look posh and exotic.

From China With Chic

It’s hard to believe but some people think that label “Made in China” on clothes is a sign of bad quality. I’d like to advise those snobs sceptical minds to visit site of Shanghai Tang.

1ca

Pink Silk Cotton Stone Button Short Sleeve Qipao Top, black 3/4 Sleeve Silk BlouseQuilted Jacquard Shorts and Gingko Embroidery Tassel Silk Box Clutch are real pleasure for fashionista’s eye.

1ce

Shanghai Tang‘s knitwear is a pure luxury. I like Cashmere Silk Long Sleeve Lined Royal Leaf Zip Cardigan (silk lining make this piese even more posh) and Cashmere-Silk Reversible Jade Cardigan.

1rc

And as dress obsessed person I have no other choice but to fall in love with Wool Contrast Strap Short Sleeve Qipao Dress (vertical straps make our bodies more slimmer).

1vv

It will look even more cute with Gingko Embroidery Tassel Silk Box ClutchKenneth Jay Lane‘s White And Red Enamel Branch RingCrystal And Coral Branch Eurowire Earring and Magrit‘s Sofie.

Few thoughts about style and Ottoman Hands jewellery

For me stylish woman is someone who choose the stuff which suits her best doesn’t matter what all those recent trends dictate us. Got chisseled shoulders? Wear wide neck tops and dresses! You fingers are long and and wrists are thin – invest in rings and bracelets. Also you have to wear all your things with confidence and dignity even they cost pennies. If you don’t have this quality you will look like a mule in horse harness (we Russians say “like crow in peacocks feathers”) even in haute couture pieces and posh jewellery.

Why I’m telling all those things? Well, Ottoman Hands jewellery does not belong to Van Cleef & Arpels league, but wearing it you can feel yourself The Queen of Sheba (if you poses that magic quality, of course). By the way, Ottoman Hands jewellery is handmade and inspired by rich and exotic Turkish culture.

1yy1

I like Labradorite, Aqua Chalcedony and Rose Quartz Three Stone RingEvil Eye Studs and Gold Dipped Pink Agate Necklace.

1za

I guess Ottoman Hands Coral Agate Reversed Disc Earrings will look great with Filippa K‘s cute Layered V-Neck Top WhiteRebecca Taylor‘s wide Crepe PantMarc Cain‘s Clutch Bag In Crocodile Look and Magrit‘s Violeta pumps.

Sexy In Silk

You’re lucky owner of long beautiful legs, chiseled arms and firm decollete and don’t know what to wear to a summer party?

Go for Chaser’s Silk Basics Surplice Hi Lo Mini DressPierre Hardy’s Parade Sandal (or Loriblu’s flat sandals, if you’re not comfortable with high heels), Repetto’s Adage bag and Bajalia’s  «Aarti» Square Lapis Dangle Earrings.
