C’est magnifique, non?
Created for the 250th anniversary of M.A.’s birth (2005), these bow earrings from boutqiuemusee conjure up a delightful theme in jewelry from the 18th century: whimsical, elegant, and yet somehow still reminiscent of childhood. I’m hooked, especially since my mother, with her undying fashion sense, gifted my five-year-old self a bow necklace before I even discovered Marie Antoinette liked cake. Imagine that.
Now, if you think you’ve seen these before, it’s because you probably have. In The Duchess, Georgiana wears a similarly fabulous pair. Lucky for us, this particular style of girlish glamour has inspired designers like Betsy Johnson and Vivienne Westwood, the former of which is very, very affordable for us non-duchess types.
I’m coveting this beautiful bow bracelet, a cheeky way to adorn your wrist:
And this necklace, which I might be compelled to buy right after finishing this post!
These Vivienne Westwood Tiny Diamante Studs are pretty nice too!
