Fashionology

Picture it. You go out, buy the perfect ring that will change the way people view you and your hands forever, you wear it a few times and then -BOOM- those green and brassy tones appear and your back to square one. It’s always the high street way. From this constant source of annoyance I am now a firm believer that silver is the way forward, its in fashion, it never wears away and compared to the high street jewellery prices at the moment (Topshop being one of the biggest offenders) sometimes their only a tad more expensive for the lighter pieces, and if there’s any store that will convert you to this charming metallic investment its fashionology.

A Brand taking todays gothic ring trend as well as all other areas of jewelry into its Netherlands stride from 2009 has been Fashionology. Foundered by Rachel Duister and starting from a passion for jewellery with originality whilst also having personal issues finding accessories to match her own style, Rachel started creating her own in her apartment whilst studying art.

Fashionology1

1) Silver Lapis Lazuli Ring: £44.61 2) Silver Cross Ring II: £36.50
3) Silver Feather Ring: £28.39

Her range has taken the blogosphere and stylists around the world by storm and now employ’s an army of fashionologists in her Rotterdam studio to produce and sell the nature and multi-cultured inspired stone adorned, patterned and alternative designs, along with monochrome illustrations dotted around the site to capture the brand by the very sleek Sanne de wild.

Fashionology2

1) Silver Square Ethnic Ring: £101.39 2) Silver Raven Skull Ring: £81.11 3) Silver Double Skull Ring: £101.39

Having grasped hold of the market here in the UK, been recognised and nominated by Elle.nl for the ‘Best Modeshop’ in 2010, and extending their range to a mens section, I wonder if there’s any height fashionology will struggle to reach.

This is definitely a brand to get your mitts on this winter fall. (excuse the pun)

MAJOR MAJOR MAJOR MAJOR MAJOR Apologies are in order for my lack of blogging, its been too long and according to wordpress its been a whole month can you believe!

Due to third year university commitments and demanding work load (which will be posted when I receive the all clear) I haven’t been able to stop moving to sit and blog for you guys so I’m terribly sorry but I’m sure this little fashion post will revamp you tired blog wondering eyes :)

If you’re a fashion lover then you would have definitely heard of LookBook, which me and a few friends are a part of.. and within the last month (if I had written this post when I said I was going to it would have been a hotter LookBook topic) you would have met our crazy LookBook top leader and amazing photographer Violetta E.

You don’t have to be an avid fashion fan to realise how much talent this girl seems to ooze just from having a shutter at the end of her fingertip and a few ideas in hand, this girl has a fantastic eye for photography and a beautiful edgy style included! (and one of the main reasons I recently purchased a pair of DM’s)

Her use of countless interesting locations, accessories, editing and camera angles really push her grungy fashion photography to the top, and compared to the usual stream of thoughtless repetitive photography its nice to see somebody fashion orientated doing something strikingly different on LookBook for a change.

You can view her Lookbook page here: http://lookbook.nu/user/79093-Violetta-E
Or to view all her photography plus her additional signature stop motions after every post click here to view her blog: http://vi0lettae.blogspot.com/

I will be back for more posting later, enjoy! xx
