The winter naturally draws one to the darker colours in our wardrobes, navy, black, brown and grey. However, on older women, these darker colours can be very draining. As you all know Grace and I love a pop of colour. In the winter that pop can be a very modest addition of a scarf or a pair of earrings. So where do I go to find some colourful additions? Some time ago I was doing a film shoot, with Tricia Cusden of Look Fabulous Forever (the make-up for older women), and she was wearing a really fun pair of earrings and the brand was Toolally. At the time I had never heard of them but now they have become my go-to-let’s-cheer-ourselves-up on this grey day accessory.
THE TOOLALLY EARRINGS:
The Toolally earrings are bold and beautiful. They make a statement and can uplift a plain outfit to a memorable one. These earrings are light to wear and also come in clip-ons for those who don’t have pierced ears.
Most importantly Toolally jewellery is British designed and made by hand in the Toolally studio on the Lancashire/Yorkshire border. The fastenings are either sterling silver or 22 carat gold vermeil so you won’t get any nasty reactions. If you’re wondering about their sustainable policy they use the acrylic pieces that are cut away, from their Classic and Special Collection, and create a ‘Recycled Collection’.
For those of you who, like me, are addicted to Strictly Come Dancing, then look out for the Toolally Strictly collection worn by the celebrities and the pros. These designs are also available to purchase HERE and will certainly add drama and excitement to any outfit.
Toolally jewellery makes a statement. I want women to have confidence in their style, to let their personality shine through the things they wear.Mags (Founder & Creative Director of Toolally)
THE TOOLALLY CASHMERE SCARVES:
It doesn’t all end there as this season Toolally have added a range of 100% cashmere scarves to their collection of fashionable accessories. These scarves, like the Toolally jewellery, are big, bold and light! These scarves are made out of the softest Mongolian cashmere and they can be worn any number of ways.
If you love statement scarves, you know that finding, for instance, the right earrings can be difficult. Both your scarf and your earrings are next to your face and both tend to naturally compete. That being said, it doesn’t mean that earrings and a scarf are a big no. It’s all about finding the right balance and creating a streamlined look. The Toolally everyday stud earrings definitely compliment their new scarves. Therefore, on a day when I really wanted the ‘Wow factor’ I would choose to wear one of these scarves with a pair of Toolally earrings. This works particularly well if they are the only bright colour in my whole outfit.
Finally I actually find that women, who have taken the time to add a scarf and/or a pair of earrings and have carefully chosen the best colour combination to enhance their outfit, always look the most ‘finished’.
GIFT WRAPPING SERVICE:
Toolally offer a gift wrapping service. I think that any girlfriend would love to receive one of the Toolally accessories beautifully gift wrapped. Most importantly I am sure you would love to receive one of their boxes. Is it time to give some hints for Christmas?
