Jewels and Quartz and Chanel

I think i gasped with delight at the images of Chanel's Paris show earlier this week.  The pillars of amethyst and quartz were truly beautiful, but I expect nothing less from Karl.

Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld turned Paris's Grand Palais into Krypton

I also love this image of street style from (i think) the Paris shows.  Jewel overload where more is definitely more!

Inspired by these images, I was drawn to this piece from one of my favourite etsy-ers, Freidasophie.
Burgundy Amethyst Druzy Necklace 14k Gold

Wouldn't you just love some amethyst bookends like these from Dovecoat-Westport?

Or a bejeweled dress from Topshop?


This graphite stone print from thepairabirds at Etsy is stunning and would make a beautiful addition to a wall of mixed prints.

 And for an easily interchangeable and inexpensive ode to all things jeweled, Stila's range of gorgeous jewel toned eye shadows are too beautiful!

  1. I tend to deplore the turn some fashion houses take after the death of their original founders (If only we could resurrect Coco Chanel along with Freddie Mercury, Elsa Schiaparelli and Maria Callas), but Lagerfeld, despite being quite original himself, knows what he's doing. It's so amazing how the Chanel show set can have such an influence... It's like there's no need for the fashion itself!
