The MMM  H&M bracelet was the beginning... now I'm beginning to discover the type of jewelry I like. 

If I could afford it and if it were available to me, I would have staples from Harugin. Simple silver, skull motif.

I looked in vintage stores today. I like big statement necklaces and bracelets, which are somewhat unusual. Not too "glamorous" (too much bling or gold) or "ladylike" (too delicate or sparkly). Not too plasticky (I wish Fred Butler's designs were more backed with metals!). I discovered a Clare Bickford-Smith collection recently, which looked cool.

I fell into like with Vivenne Westwood due to the popularity of the jewellery in Asia and Japanese street fashion and J-rock/NANA, but I'm beginning to question it. It seems too common, not edgy enough - nice orb, but it's just "nice". Too wearable.

Maison Martin Margiela x H&M

I really wanted the nude acrylic wedge shoes, but this is cool too! It's now a week past the launch, and with only one store carrying it in central Dublin, I didn't have my hopes up, so this was a nice pick-me-up. To be honest, the Anna Dello Russo collection caused me to ignore MMM, expecting the same (no offense, ADR, but there were like 50 of those gold flats on sale). I'll be more vigilant next time...
