Piece I Love – November 30th

Posted in by

Handpicked by Poppy

Like most women, although I love a chic clutch I sometimes get a little bored of carrying it around all night, and seeing as my husband refuses to be a sport and carry it for me, I often regret my style choice. However, this stunner offers the best of both worlds. A beautifully handcrafted leather lovely, it boasts a handy strap for when clutching that clutch all becomes a bit much.

Designer Interview – La Diosa

Posted in by

Meeting design duo Natasha Faith and Semhal Zemkiael is an inspiring experience in itself. Two wonderfully passionate and creative women, they pour their heart and soul into their label La Diosa.

Born out of their travels around the world, the pair honed their jewelry making skills in a small village in Mexico. Luckily for us they decided to return to the UK and set up La Diosa – meaning ‘The Goddess’ in Spanish.

With their label proving to be a hit across the globe, we managed to catch the duo to chat about their new Honeymoon collection and the inspiration behind their highly covetable Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund Bracelets.

The perfect accessories for the perfect first date

Posted in by

Want to know how to dazzle your date in style? Then follow these three handy hints.

1. Keep it simple. However fashionable you are, it’s best to keep it classic on a first date, third or fourth dates are when you open the fashion drawer. We suggest Peggy Li’s CZ Briolette Earrings, Miller and Jeeves’ Gretchen Midi or Joanna Dahdah’s Hypnose Pendant.

2. Don’t try too hard. A first date is the time to be aloof, to be coy and to be cool. You want an outfit that says ‘What this old thing?’ not ‘I’ve spent six hours putting this baby together.’ Totem Salvaged’s black fringe leather bagAyako Kanari’s Facets scarf and LeiVanKash’s Feather Bracelet will help you get this effect.

3. Be careful with colors. According to Millionaire Matchmaker Patti Stanger you should: ‘Stick to jewel tones like blues and greens and stay well away from oranges and yellow tones.’ For handy hints on jewel tones, check out our feature on just that.

Piece I Love – November 28th

This turquoise, gold and crystal cuff by Suzanna Dai is certainly a standout piece. I would wear this with a maxi skirt and sandals in the summer, or even now to warm up the gloomy November weather.

Piece I Love – November 25th

Posted in by

Handpicked by Philippa

I have a real soft spot for hand woven/knitted and painted textiles. I absolutely love the geometry in this scarf along with the frills and abstract shapes. It reminds me of an artist I saw drawing with chalks on the pavement outside my apartment in Barcelona years ago. When I returned from shopping later that evening, the rain had fallen and abstracted the image he had painted. It was even more beautiful than before, the memory is still there!

Perfect Presents

Posted in by

With the frenzy of the festive gift-buying season well under way, we give you the ultimate guide to buying a perfect, unique gift.

Make it personal. Run of the mill, on everyone’s top 10 list presents are easy. Make sure they know you’ve taken that extra little bit of care with a personalised present. We love Jessica de Lotz Jewellery’s Personalised Hand Stamped Wax Seal Necklace.

Think outside the box. Dorus Mhor’s Liberty Print Gem Bracelet is fashioned from vintage Liberty of London cotton fastened onto wooden beads for a delightfully different piece of bling.

Give the gift that keeps on giving. What are we talking about? Why fairtrade of course. As a licenced Fairtrade designer, 15% of Linnie Mclarty’s profits go towards ensuring a better working life for miners and for their families. We love the METTLE ring.

Life is better when you learn. Gemstones are not only beautiful and unique but each and every one has a separate meaning. From agate to amethyst, find out what each one means on our blog.

Make it local. Fly the flag for homegrown, local talent and pick an artist from your hometown. Boticca has over 200 designers from over 50 countries around the world.
