Jewel Personality

by cecylia on October 29, 2012

It’s not every day I don a crocheted ensemble, a seashell necklace that is weighty as it’s beautiful, and prance around the beach like a love-struck mermaid’s first time on land. But that’s the effect Salita Matthews‘ vibrant leather and sea-creature “Time Stands Still” necklace has on one. You can’t blame me for being hopelessly captivated by its composition, colour and character. Plus it even cajoled me into chanting ‘She sells seashells by the seashore.‘ I know. Hopeless.


Salita Matthews necklace/Vintage top (similar one here) & skirt / Witchery dress (worn udnerneath), vintage shades (similar styles here), belt & bag / Tom Gunn heels

Although your mind is now probably filled with exotic holiday scenes, why leave a crocheted ensemble sea-bound only? Wear it to lunch, dinner, or even to buy seafood, just add a little slip underneath for legal protection. I’d wear this to the library, to borrow a book on how to crochet. Think of all the endless possibilities: crochet dresses, scarves, bags, bikinis… they may even win a glance from Margherita Missoni.

thank you Mica- it’s quite bright isn’t it? I tried to tone it down with the grey ensemble…

Mica October 30, 2012 at 10:54 pm

It’s bright in the best way – bursts of colour against the grey :) It looks really fun and interesting, definitely not too bright! :)
