Trails And Trends: QUEST 1/4, Necklaces Mad Dash

I don't want to drown you in posts, so I'm going to write what happened today in four separate posts, schedule post them in 2-day intervals. Additionally, on the fourth I will post a vlog I made today. So STAY TUNED!

Trails And Trends: QUEST 1/4, Necklaces Mad Dash
Trails And Trends: QUEST 2/4, Infinity Necklaces
Trails And Trends: QUEST 3/4, River Island Bags
_

Long story short, my friend is going to a  masquerade ball tonight, so we went to her nearest shopping centre to find what she needed, which was a big, (possibly bright) and bold statement necklace to go with her sensible, reserved, fairly plain black lace midi dress and high heeled boots. Oh, and her black mask. :) It's hard to represent the style clearly here as the necklaces really do look different in person.

On our way, we looked at necklaces she needed (the Quest Pt. 1), these awesome sandals in Topshop (pt.4), these BEE-YOO-tiful bags in River Island (pt.3), and these amazing infinity necklaces that I adore because the symbol 'infinity' means a lot to me. Though I'm not sure I like how they were used - will explain in Quest Part 2. (I dunno why I put the infinity necklaces second, I guess I'm just a G like that. =] )


CRITERIA
- must be a fashion statement necklace, thus LOUD. LOOUD. Big and sparkly and heavy.
- must be silver, as we both agreed that although gold is very popular rn, not all shades go with her clothes/skin tone and many looked.... 'bawdy'. (awful word, best I could do.)
- no diamante as she doesn't like it.
- pearls if possible, as she really likes that.

BUT...
Recently she got highlights on the right side of her hair which is a shocking amber-gold colour, and her hair is black. It stands out a lot, so whatever we get has to match that too.

Ready? Lets go!



In the order we found them [including website links]:

H&M


H1 - H&M Short Pendant Necklace [HERE] She felt it was too plain.
H2 - H&M Silver Metal Chain Necklace, Sparkly Fastener [HERE] Too small, too plain.
H3 - H&M Wide Joined Multi-hue Metal Chains Necklace [HERE] She liked this a lot but wasn't blown away.


H4 - H&M Rigid Three-Part Metal Necklace [HERE] She didn't like it full stop.
H5 - H&M Gold Metal Pendants Necklace [HERE] She didn't like the tone of the gold...
H6 - H&M Silver Metal Pendants Necklace [HERE] ... but the silver was too tame.


TOPSHOP


T1 - Topshop Gold Stretch Metal Collar [HERE] She liked this but it wasn't what she wanted.
T2 - Topshop Gold Plain Solid Collar[HERE] Okay, this one was my preference. It wouldn't really suit her outfit.
T3 - Topshop Gold Cut Out Collar [HERE] It was loud, like she wanted, but something about it... =/


RIVER Island


R1 - Gold Tone Slinky Statement Necklace [HERE] Again, wasn't what she wanted.


By this point she was getting very frustrated and kind wanted to give up, but after seeing a stunning, sparkly necklace in a stall we decided to take one last look, and chose Claire's to do that in. I haven't been to Claires in years, so it was interesting that that's where she found what she wanted (and I found the Infinity necklaces).


CLAIRE'S ACCESSORIES

C1 - Burnished Silver Aztec Bar Bib Necklace [HERE]


She finally decided on...

N BOUGHT: Multi Row Angel Wing Necklace [HERE]
E BOUGHT: XL Feathered Dreamcatcher Earrings [HERE]

The reason why these two work so well is because the necklace itself it long and draping, drawing attention to it as it sits over the plain dress. The black feathers of the earrings match the dress she's wearing, the gold matches the gold of the necklace, and it's hard to see here but there's gold-coloured beads on it, which ironically also match the highlights of her hair. It was an awesome pick.

Anywhoo, I'm tired and I still have uni work to do. *sigh* I do get carried away, huh....


Extras

Topshop - Glitter Section Collar [HERE]
Even as I gathered the images for this post, I was Pink Spotting!!!









Topshop Triangular Cuff [HERE]
Cuffs seem to be popular now. It a very egyptian-like style, and I really like it's regalness.

Liebster Blog Award... Again!




To my astonishment, I have been nominated again by the wonderful Inger Anna Jones of So You Want To Be A Writer Blog. I was nominated the first time by Zoe of That's Zoe blog, and you can find my blog post accepting that award HERE, with my original 11 facts and 11 questions. Now, as its a different blog that was nominated, I think I'm supposed to think of entirely new facts, questions and nominees to keep the chain going!




The Liebster Award Rules


  • Thank the person who nominated you, and post a link to their blog on your blog.
  • Display the award on your blog — by including it in your post and/or displaying it using a “widget” or a “gadget”. (Note that the best way to do this is to save the image to your own computer and then upload it to your blog post.)
  • Answer 11 questions about yourself, which will be provided to you by the person who nominated you.
  • Provide 11 random facts about yourself.
  • Nominate 5 – 11 blogs that you feel deserve the award, who have a less than 1000 followers. (Note that you can always ask the blog owner this since not all blogs display a widget that lets the readers know this information!)
  • Create a new list of questions for the blogger to answer.
  • List these rules in your post (You can copy and paste from here.) Once you have written and published it, you then have to:
  • Inform the people/blogs that you nominated that they have been nominated for the Liebster award and provide a link for them to your post so that they can learn about it (they might not have ever heard of it!)



My 11 Answers (to the questions HERE from Inger Anna Jones)

1. What are you currently reading?
Mindfulness, by Mark Williams and Danny Penman. I've been saying I wanted to start doing meditation for ages. Buying this book last week was a kick in the butt for me.
2. How would you define happiness? 
Family. And friends. Fresh mint tea. Sleeping. Er... eating.

3. What is your most treasured possession?
... I don't think I have one! I don't think I'm as attatched to material things as some people. But from the view of, If Your House Went Up In Flames, What Would You Wish You Had In Your Hand? My notebooks. All of them, if possible. They have over 10 years worth of stories and ideas in them.
4. Who is your real life hero?
I don't really know. Loads of people inspire me. In writing, maybe J.K. Rowling. Motivation wise, maybe Tony Robbins. Hair-wise, Nicki Minaj, probably. For being artistic and boundary-pushing, Lady Gaga. For being a talented actress, awesome, and modest, Ellen Page. But if I've got to pick one, I'd have to say my Mum. I idolise her a lot.

5. Who is your favourite author, and why?
My favourite author is Carlos Ruiz Zafon, because his books taught me things about novel writing that I didn't pick up anywhere else, about taking the reader on a journey even if the characters go nowhere, about raising the stakes, about character development. Ironically, he is not the author of my favourite book.
6. What do you enjoy most about blogging?
*sings* FREEEEDOOOOOOOOOM!! It's fun!

7. Do you have a motto or saying you try to live by?
There's a few, but yeah. The following is by Abraham Hicks from a workshop in May 2012.

"Your life is right now! It's not later! It's not in that time of retirement. It's not when the lover gets here. It's not when you've moved into the new house. It's not when you get the better job. Your life is right now. It will always be right now. You might as well decide to start enjoying your life right now, because it's not ever going to get better than right now—until it gets better right now!"

8. If money was not an issue, where would you life?
=/ One part of me says Japan, another part of me says anywhere hot.
9. What book would you have liked to have written?
 - !!!!
Er... I don't much feel that way about books! There's many cartoons I wish I'd thought of first... not books so much. Erm... maybe Harry Potter.. ?

10. If you had to choose a different profession than you now have, what would that be?
Well, as I'm a student who also works in retail, I guess I'll answer it in terms of what I want to go into - being a fantasy author, or maybe getting into property investment O_O
11. Describe the perfect day.
Not a question, teehee! I'm joking XD A hot, sunny day with a nice breeze, out with my friend or my family doing something nice, like going out to a festival or a show or a fair for the day, and just taking in the world.


Shorter than my answers to Zoe's questions! Phew!


11 Random Facts About Myself

As I did this before, I'll make them style related this time. Okay?


1. Contrary to what this blog is suggesting, my favourite colour is actually purple.
2. I created Jade Rose thinking about Hello Kitty.
3. When I was younger, I loved wearing flared jeans, like grunger type jeans. I thought they were so cool. A few years later, I suddenly hated them and got rid of them all for straight cut or skinny.
4. I am not an accessories person. Much. I have a few select favourite and I wear them carefully.
5. Over the past few years, I have had a growing obsession with: shoes, skirts, dresses.
6. Being the second-youngest of six children, many of my clothes were hand-me-downs. I only started buying my own clothes a few years ago, when I realised that most of my clothes - A. didn't fit me properly, B. weren't my style, or C. were falling to pieces.
7. I'm... tall. I guess. As school and college I was one of the tallest. Now my height is about average. I always have to buy tall size, but thankfully that easier to get now.
8. I love the colour pink, but actually, I only wear it when I feel like it. This blog is the most pink-saturated thing I have ever done.
9. I collect shiny coins O_O
10. - and ribbons! I never wear them in my hair, but I keep meaning to. I will, one day.
11. I am always childishly happy whenever somebody shows interest in my blog, and I must massively thank you all again for reading. APPRECIATED! <3


My Nominees

My 11 Questions

1. Seeing as this blog is Pink Sovereign - what's your favourite colour and why?
2. What's the most expensive thing you've ever bought? (or if you don't want to answer that, what's the best discount you ever got on something? Either or.)

* Weird question, I know! I thought of it because I bought a box of Strawberries and Cream Lindor impulsively, only really because the box was thee PRETTIEST shade of pink. It didn't taste as good as Stracciatella, or even Milk =(
** Just curious. I'm a walking person. =]
