I’ve now been a team member here at Last Night I Dreamt for just over two months and I’m completely loving it! It’s been so wonderful meeting you all and sharing my passion for jewellery. My jewellery collection and wish list has also substantially grown (shocking I know) so I would love to share with you all what is tickling my fancy as we go into Autumn.
As well as a jewellery obsession, I’m an avid fan of clothes, meaning I’m constantly thinking about outfit combinations and what jewellery I can add. One of my favourite brands is Ganni as I love their commitment to responsible clothing. I recently purchased their shirred gingham cotton and silk-blend top. With sustainability in mind, I would love to add to this look with one of Alex Monroe’s 18ct inbetweeny bee necklaces. If you’ve read Rebecca’s recent blog you’ll know solid gold pieces are forever pieces, meaning buying these pieces is much more sustainable in the long run as they’ll never need replacing! My ultimate forever piece goal is to own a Jessica De Lotz large solid gold wax seal necklace. An investment, but certainly worth it.
On the subject of solid gold, we’ve got a very exciting new brand landing at the boutique… Métier by Tomfoolery. Métier uses 9ct gold to create their gorgeous collection. I’ve just had my seconds pierced and have two weeks left until I can change my earrings. I cannot wait to curate my new ear look with Métier, its stunning! I know so many of you are going to fall in love with Métier along with myself and the Last Night I Dreamt team. Here are some of my favourite pieces that are about to land:
Obviously this Lucy Loves blog is very gold heavy (gold is my favourite) but I do mix silver into my jewellery too. My go to brand for silver in Daniella Draper, you honestly can’t go wrong. It’s also another brand focussed on sustainability, using only recycled silver and made in their Grimsby workshop. A piece I’ve been eying up is the large crescent moon on the trace chain. I love how clean this design is, it’s a super versatile piece that will just add that extra bit of UMPH to on outfit.
After studying Marine Biology at university, sustainability is a subject that is constantly on my mind. Therefore, I naturally find myself leaning towards pieces handmade in England or brands with great sustainability pledges/traceability. I’m looking forward to seeing more brands head in this direction, so we can not only feel glam wearing our sparkles but also know it’s been sourced/made in the most responsible way.
Happy shopping my favourite pieces going into autumn. You can also head to our Autumn Edit here and shop our favourite selection.
