Oxidized jewelry and me!

I have for a long time realized my love for oxidized jewelry. I call it the zero maintenance jewelry. In fact the more careless you are at maintaining it, the more antique it looks! (Caution: don’t be careless enough and lose it though 😝)  I have, over the years, collected so many of these black metal pieces. In fact, two of them, I have been having from my fourth grade – that’s 15+ years now. 😍
This past week I have carefully worn my best oxidized jewelry to work to click pictures and to show you guys how chic they can be! So here we go!

Jhumkas:

The first jhumka especially never fails to solicit a lot of WOWs every time I wear it. And the best part, I bought it for real cheap while roadside shopping 👍

Chokers and Necklaces:

Oxidized jewelry are associated a lot with chokers and short necklaces in my country because they lend themselves so well to the pattern. Another growing trend is teaming them with black thread like this one:

One more piece of jewelry which attracts so much attention are these bangles. I love the intricate pattern on them and love how comfortable and antique they feel!

The oxidized silver lends itself so beautifully well to other colors like this aqua blue beads. Oxidized gold jewelry is not as popular as its silver cousin but I love it all the same. And hoops and rings in this black metal look great with not-so-traditional garb as well! 🙂

That’s all from me folks! Have a brilliant weekend. Get lots of fun work done. Tell me how you liked this post and hope you stock up on black metal soon. Ciao! 💝

Orange is the new black ~2

Hellooo all you lovely people! 🙂 how has your week been so far? My week…erm…let’s just say the lesser said the better. 😛

So I bought this top from an Indian shop called “AND” a few months ago and the place I was going to this weekend seemed fun enough to release it 🙂 I tried a small mix-&-match, so I paired the halter neck top with something as traditional as the jhumka.
The jhumka is a traditional Indian earring worn by ladies for festivities and occasions. While it comes in various shapes, sizes and materials these days, they were originally made out of precious metals like gold and silver.
Coming back, so the current rage in my city is jhumkas made out of terracotta. When such adorable trends come by, why won’t I binge? Ofcourse I did 😀

They look pretty, yah? 😀
I kept the rest of the look simple. Since this blouse was pretty long, it covered my er..rather large behind 😛 so I chucked my jeans and wore it with a pair of super-comfy black above-the-ankle tights. These are truly the all purpose, fully exploited piece of clothing I own. Gym? Work? Casual outing? Shopping? I wear these tights every-frikkin-where. LoL.
The footwear was also pretty toned down. Wore these beautiful nude pumps I bought a while ago.

I love love luuurrvvee the cut work on these shoes 😀

Oh oh oh..and while we are at it, since my watch happened to match so beautifully with the look I thought why not show you guys that as well!

This fossil is one of my prized possessions 🙂 first gift to myself from my salary type of special!!! Its pink mother of pearl dial goes so well with any shade of pink, orange and red.

So what do you guys think? What would you pair halternecks with? Do tell me ❤
