Handsomely Vera Xane …
I heart jewellery & self decorating haha … Diamonds, Silver, Gold, Leather … Earrings, Necklaces, Rings, Bracelets and the like!
I am BLING – people in my life know me to be loud in colour and in style. I wear clashing prints, wear bright shoes, live my life in colour, make up my own trends and make no apologies for who I am.
One of my favourite Australian Fashion Designer Labels is We are Handsome. Specialising in lycra-type materials for swimwear & clothing with a summery, animal-printing, vibrant, tropical vibe.
I have a thing for tropical-looking pieces such as pineapples, watermelon & palm trees … So stumbling across an Australian issue of Cosmopolitan, I was delighted to hear that We Are Handsome have collaborated with a young & talented designer: Alex Smyth-Kirk who launched her brand Vera Xane in 2011.
Vera Xane has always had a magnetic fondness for jewellery & accessories throughout high school and whilst studying her passion she developed her own unique & stunning range of pieces. Influenced by popular & Rock n Rock era from the 1960’s & 70’s her pieces are loud, statement-like, geometrical & bold jewellery pretty much speak for themselves … Think BIG! … Her website features various collections and one of which is a collaboration of Vera Xane X We are Handsome inspired by the team of WAH (We are Handsome) they snapped up Alex Smyth-Kirk’s talent for an Odessey Rising Campaign in the Maldives plus Mercedes Benz Fashion Week.

With excitement I received my package and here arrived the shiny, yellow & rose gold pieces encased in their own little bags and black-rock-n-roll-marble effect, textured looking boxes.
Large “upside-down” gold palm trees (both earrings & necklace are collabs with WAH) were my chosen purchases alongside with a rose-gold geometrical drop earrings in a caged-prism-style diamond shape.
Love these pieces & wear them religiously – earrings are more for a night out (wore the pineapple ones with a WAH dress – more on that in a later post) and the necklace is perfect for creating the layered necklace look.
Til next bloggie post … Have a great week and keep your eyes peeled for more foodie & fashion soon!
