Glittering accessories inspired by former Vogue model

Ruby red crystal peacock ring Ruby red crystal peacock ring This month we are getting inspired by the glamour and beauty of the April Ashley exhibition at Museum of Liverpool. The former Vogue model and actress has a unique sense of style and was one of the first people in the world to undergo pioneering gender reassignment surgery. Her love of vibrant accessories has lead us to stock up on colourful cocktail rings and sparkling vintage-style pieces for the new exhibition range. Everyone from independent fashion blogs to UK Vogue are getting excited about the rich reds and burgundies from the Autumn/Winter 2013 catwalk shows and we can see why. This Armani hourglass-shaped red velvet dress would certainly bring a bit of a colour to a dull winter evening. Our ruby red crystal baroque ring would be more affordable though!

Opulence and exaggerated decoration were at the centre of Dolce & Gabbana's Autumn/Winter show,  with bejewelled dresses and crowns floating down the runway. We think D&G would fully approve of the ruby red crystal peacock ring that we've chosen for the range, as they definitely think that 'more is more'! So, we can't offer you crowns, but we can offer you glittering accessories that would go down a treat at your next Christmas party... Dolce & Gabbana A/W 2013 Dolce & Gabbana A/W 2013.
