When I discovered Birks’ Rock & Pearl collection on Kiesza (she wore a few of her favourite pieces at the 2015 Juno Awards), I fell in love! The reason was simple: I like pearls, but they can be a little too proper… which is why mixing them with studs is such a good idea!
A few weeks after Kiesza was my look du jour, I was offered to style my two favourite pieces for the #RefineYourEdge campaign! As you can imagine, I was thrilled… and after going through the collection 10 times, I finally chose the longest of the necklaces and the stunning cuff bracelet.
I love having short hair, because it allows me to get away with lots of clothes that could easily look a little too daring… like this Donna Karan nude bodysuit I paired with a classic pencil skirt in the same colour. By the way, to me, a monochromatic outfit is the best way to showcase jewelry!
Putting the focus on the jewelry is also the reason why I chose this plunging neckline. There’s something so feminine and sexy about pearls directly touching the skin…
Now that you know what influenced the outfit, I have to tell you why I opted for these specific pieces! The bracelet was simply love at first sight, but the necklace… I thought long & hard about it and finally chose it for its versatility!
As you saw in the first pictures, the necklace really looks amazing as a long sautoir, but you can also wear it shorter by wrapping it twice around your neck.
If you follow my outfit posts, you probably know that I LOVE headpieces… and won’t be surprised to see that I’m also planning to wear my new necklace as a delicate headchain. I’ll just wait for my hair to grow a little because it will look even better!
The last reason I chose the long necklace is that I also can transform it into a beautiful hand chain (so trendy this summer)! Not only is it pretty, but it allows me to put more emphasis on the cuff bracelet.
