Celebrity fashion trend – Laser cut fabric on Nicole, Dianna and Millie

This week Millie Mackintosh has been spotted wearing a gorgeous sparkly dress with a neckline full of peep-holes! I love this look and I’m not the only one; this year Glee’s Dianna Agron wore a laser-cut gown to the Golden Globe awards in shocking red and Nicole Richie has been snapped in this leather cutwork top combined with slinky leather trousers.

It’s a great trend to follow this autumn/winter and there’s a couple of stylish laser-cut pieces in the summer sale on ASOS and Bank, so grab yourself a bargain that you can wear well into next year!

My favourite craftspeople – House of the Fickle Queen

 

I recently stumbled upon a fabulous jewellery company when The House of the Fickle Queen popped up on my Twitter feed and I followed their links to their website www.FickleQueenHQ.com where I discovered the cutest retro-pop jewellery! The site is run by Farquarson and Firth who specialize in laser-cut necklaces, brooches and earrings, which they sell alongside quirky charm bracelets and vintage-style cameo rings. All very kitsch, and all very cute!

 

While the quirky vintage shapes and cameos really caught my eye, it was the personalised jewellery option that stood out for me. I’d liked these laser-cut jewellery items on the Little Mix girls (above, plus check out the frilly tutu skirts!) during last year’s X-Factor but had no idea where I could get such a thing from! Luckily, House of the Fickle Queen also create text-based items, with a choice of font, colour and your own words/name, which is absolutely awesome!

After a jolly good browse around the site, I quite fancied getting a piece of jewellery for myself and I fell head-over-heels for this Disney princess style horse and carriage necklace. I was so excited when the package dropped onto my door-mat and I was totally thrilled with the quality and beauty of my gorgeous necklace. And here it is (are you well jealous yet?!):Let me know what you think of my new piece of jewellery! What’s your favourite piece of jewellery? What text would you have laser-cut and why?!
