So you can see in the above photo that the earrings are way to long and the clip isn't in the right place at all. I think the girls were playing around with it. I'm actually going to have it shoved in the back as it takes up too much room in the front. My hair isn't properly styled, its how I usually wear it for work. And that is the veil that I'm going to use. It's got tiny little diamante attached to the edges of it, so its got bling on it as well. But you get the general idea of what I mean by way too much bling. So I needed to find something understated and nice.

One of the girls who had got married last year brought her jewellery from Chilton's Antique store in Miranda, just opposite the Miranda Westfield. Seeing as I live just down the road, I thought I'd go and check it out. And low in behold, they were having a big sale and I got my my jewellery for 30% off. It would of usually been $205 but I got it for $144. A whole lot more than I was originally willing to spend but this will last a lifetime longer that what the stuff would of had I brought it at Lovisa or the cheaper stores. And I love it. It's very sparkly and nice. The lady in the store and I were joking that I'd be on salad this week to pay for it. I was originally going to lay by it, but then if I did that, I'd miss out on the 30% off. So I bit the bullet and paid for it in full. Haha, no salad for me, just normal lite n easy.
So here are the photos of my lovely jewellery, they are made of cubic zirconia in an antique setting and rhodium plated, so I shouldn't have an itchy allergic reaction to them which I get with the cheaper metals.

My only qualm is: Do I now need to get a different hair comb? It is very sparkly and sort of goes with my earrings. It will be tucked in the back of my hair so it shouldn't get in the way hopefully. I've taken a photo with my earrings and comb together.

What do you think? I think that I could possibly get away with it but am open to the fact that they may not match and I may have to purchase another. Chilton's does have one that could go with the earrings and bracelet. It is more oval in nature and about half the size of the hair comb that I have now.
