Reclaimed Vintage Pink Midi Dress

As previously mentioned in my 3 Things I've Learnt In My 26th Year blog post, it was recently my birthday!  I tend to use birthdays as a time for reflection, to see how things can be improved for the year ahead.  With this in mind, one of the areas I've been looking at is fashion.  Slow fashion, in particular.  It feels as though I've now pretty much shaken off most desires for fast fashion, in favour of longer-lasting pieces that cost more, but last longer.  This doesn't only apply to clothing - jewellery, too.  As a birthday treat to myself I started my wrist stack with a coveted Hermés Clic H Bracelet in white/gold and the discovery of more precious jewellery continued with a pretty little delivery from Daisy London...

Our taste is constantly changing and especially when it comes to style - something that can be credited to getting older, happily.  It's a strange process to watch ourselves falling out of love with the things we used to adore, and equally falling in love with new things.  In my case, I've lost interest in little bits and pieces that come and go, dip in and out of fashion and could be easily replaced without thought.  Instead?  I'm starting a jewellery collection to treasure forevermore.  There's beauty to be found in a carefully curated edit of pieces that become our daily faves, ready to be associated with ourselves - similar to a signature scent (Chanel Coco Mademoiselle, if you were wondering).  It's a journey and one that could take a lifetime before you've created your ideal jewellery box of precious pieces, and that ladies and gents, is the art of slow fashion jewellery.
