Merry Christmas from Claudia Bradby And me.

This will most probably be my last post of the year but what a great send-off I have for you. Claudia Bradby has been heavily involved in my blogging journey and we have grown together. Pearls are one of my favourite accessories to wear and I have great pleasure in announcing this giveaway from a brand I think highly of.

Claudia Bradby Pearls

Looking back through my posts I have been sharing pearls from Claudia Bradby since 2016 and pictured above is the first set of pearls that I received and still wear today. You rarely see photos of me without pearls in my ears or somewhere on my body. I’m leaving my very first photo below of our first collaboration. Look at the pearls and laugh at the big hair!

Wear them singularly or stack them to make a statement, pearls are such a classic stone to wear that will always compliment your outfit and never look dated. One of the reasons I love Claudia’s brand is that she takes this classic stone and creates on-trend pieces with gold or silver that will pair so well with all the classic pearl pieces that I have

This year, I have become obsessed with ears adorned with stacks of earrings. I decided at the age of 57 to get the second holes that I had got pierced in my teens re-opened. When shops closed down my plans were scuppered but to my surprise on trying to get an earring into those closed up holes that hadn’t had any earrings in for over 30 years.

I couldn’t believe it when one just slid right on through! I wear my hair tied quite a lot nowadays and a few earrings complement the look well I feel.

Featured above are a pair of Dream Catcher simple pearl hoop earrings. I’ve also added a Dreamcatcher ear cuff. These cuffs fit literally anywhere on your ear and are really supposed to be worn higher up the ear but I really like how these look as a trio. A simple pearl stud in the other ear seems to finalise this on-trend look.

Wear Claudia Bradby pearls dressed up or as casual as you like. Even in your PJ’s!

I often wear pearls with my jeans. Jeans and a T-shirt or shirt/blouse. It just gives off a more put-together look. Here I’m showing how any of Claudia’s pearl collections can be paired up to ramp up the glamour.

I’m wearing the Dreamcatcher silver twig cuff again, alongside my favourite earrings from this year called the Helix collection. Two bracelets, one from my latest addition The World Is Your Oyster bracelet and a delicate chain and the Dreamcatcher Cowrie and pearl bracelet.

Who wouldn’t like to receive a lovely gifting of pearls? Plus I have a 20% discount for you too! Wear them with your favourite dress or jeans and enjoy them. We all deserve a special treat after the year we have had I think this year.

Above is my favourite new trio. The Double Gold Helix Drops, a single pearl stud and this gorgeous dainty ear cuff. It just goes to prove here that pearls can be so on-trend and not at all un-fashionable. Please let me know in the comments if you prefer to wear gold or silver? This is something Claudia and I have been discussing and I did say that I would ask you, my lovely readers which you prefer, so do please let me know.

    I used to have three piercing, but one of my third piercings closed up on one side. I may get it pierced again eventually! I love pearls with denim and a white simple top, too! So simple yet elegant!

    I love that you wear pearls so often. I do think they are so classic and it’s beautiful to see them even with jeans!!

    Pearls are so timely and classic. I don’t wear them very often because I only have a couple of necklaces I inherited and I don’t think they’re quite the right length for me (silly, really). I love pearl earrings though and I’ve been dropping hints to Michael for years lol! Perhaps I ought to just buy myself some!!
    I hope you have a wonderful Christmas, Laurie.

    Laurie, Laurie, you have the most gorgeous hair, I for one wouldn’t laugh at your beautiful curls and the colour is warm and natural.
    Big luxurious Curls have stood the test of time , think Christina Rossetti. I personally don’t go for choppy
    Wonky edgy styles . How hilarious would renaissance women have looked in those beautiful old masterpiece oil paintings with an angled bob!
    Hey to all you readers each to their own if you have wonky bobs. Me well my hair is a miserable grey non descript style . so Laurie I would give anything for those gorgeous curls.
    On pearls I just love them , I always wear my little pearl studs. Stay safe, take care and swish those curls x

    This looks like a great brand and I can’t wait fir the Giveaway. Those earrings look divine .

  13. December 16, 2020 / 6:47 pm

    And you wear them with flair! Very veto elegant Laurie. If this is your last party of the year I want to wish you and Dee a very happy cozy and good Christmas!

    I recently bought my first item from Claudia, a single pearl on a necklace. I can see myself becoming an addict! I love all the pieces you have here. Thanks for linking at #WowOnWednesday xx
