Glittering accessories inspired by former Vogue model
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
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
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
that would go down a treat at your next Christmas party...
