Jewellery and accessories really do play a key role in emphasizing a vintage wedding theme.  For inspiration, bridal magazines often feature antique-style gems but also watch old black and white movies, search the internet for photographs of movie stars from past eras and ask older relatives.  Grandma’s box of treasures is certainly a good place to start for ideas!

Brides Magazine Makes A Statement With Glitzy Secrets Wedding Necklace

March 30th, 2010

brides-necklaceEvery bride deserves to sparkle and, with the catwalks alight with statement jewels, what better way to ensure all eyes are on the beautiful bride than with a jewel-dropping wedding necklace. Brides magazine showcases Divine Extravagance Necklace by Glitzy Secrets in its Accessorise Cleverly feature and says “Add dazzle to your gown with knockout jewels”.

Featuring three Austrian crystal encrusted rows with an oversized Swarovski crystal pear cut drop, this is certainly a piece to add drama to your wedding outfit and is perfect for brides who adore the classic old-school 1940′s glamour.

While the perfect statement wedding necklace can create a dazzling effect, it’s worth keeping a mental checklist when shopping for your wedding jewellery…

1. Will the necklace compliment the neckline of your bridal gown?
2. What style are you trying to achieve? Vintage, classic, fairytale or contemporary?
3. Consider your frame – a bold wedding necklace may overpower petite brides.
4. Is there detailing on your gown, particularly the bodice, which would compete with your necklace?
5. Keep the focus on one statement piece for on-trend, utterly fabulous style!

Best Says Get The Look of Amanda Holden with Glitzy Secrets Hair Clip

March 13th, 2010

best-amanda-holden-hair-clipEvery awards ceremony demands a touch of old-school glamour and, as Best magazine shows, Amanda Holden looked every inch the classic Hollywood starlet at the National Television Awards. Opting for a simple ivory figure hugging floor length gown, Amanda went for timeless movie star with a loose toulsed low side bun, sweeping jet black eyeliner and scarlet lipgloss.

Of course, diamonds are a must for every starlet and Ms Holden certainly sparkled like a star with statement diamond button earrings, a bold bracelet and a bejewelled hair clip. Showing just how easy it is to achieve ‘Red Carpet Style’, Best features Glitzy Secrets Romance Hair Clip. Adorned with sparkling Austrian crystals set in a bouquet style design, this is the perfect hair accessory to make a classic statement placed just above a low bun.

To steal (well, ok borrow) Amanda’s oh so chic style, simply team with Hollywood Starlet Clip On Earrings and Nostalgic Romance Bracelet – so fabulously 1940′s! Since most of us don’t have the pleasure of regularly gracing the red carpet, this classic look is perfect for a dinner date, a day at the races or a black tie event. So thanks to Marilyn et al, we can all have a little movie star glamour in our lives!
