25. Miss Milly

My featured business this week is…Miss Milly!

Miss Milly are a wholesale jewellery business that I came across when I attended Pure London last February. Launching in 2012, they have some stunning pieces which look like miniature pieces of art!

Usually I’m not overly keen on large designs in jewellery unless I’m wearing a fairly plain, simple outfit, however all of these designs seem so versatile that I feel I could quite easily adapt an outfit to the design of the jewellery I choose to accessorise with.

I have a super long wishlist of jewellery from Miss Milly, most of which will definitely be going on my Christmas list this year. The colours are absolutely gorgeous and they can be dressed up for a night out or can be worn in the daytime to work or out with friends. All jewellery is nickel-free, lead-free and cadmium-free.

Every item has free delivery in the UK and comes with free gift packaging – the perfect way to shop for Christmas gifts!

After buying my gorgeous faux fur scarf from Miss Selfridge recently, I have gone navy obsessed! Navy is definitely the new black for me so when I came across this necklace (and matching bracelet!) on the website I knew it had to go top of my wishlist for Christmas.

I have received three beautiful pieces from Miss Milly to review with each item delicately wrapped in a purple tissue paper, they were beautifully presented. The first was this stunning long heart necklace. Decorated with intricate detail, this pretty necklace has a long chain with a heart charm. I was pleasantly surprised by this necklace as I often find these to be made of quite a thin metal. This necklace however, felt well made and durable. £11.85

The second piece was this set of starry earrings. Besides my pearl earrings that I literally wear on a daily basis, I go through phases of getting addicted to wearing the same pair of dangly earrings. I feel like space, stars and planets are definitely in trend for Autumn/Winter 2015 so I’ll definitely be using them to glam up my evening Christmas party outfits! I love the different colour metals used, it definitely gives them that unique, handmade look. £12.45

My favourite piece that Miss Milly has been kind enough to send through to me has to be this blue disc bracelet. I loved the stones in this bracelet and love that it is elasticated meaning it is so easy to put on and take off. When holding the bracelet up in the light the stones sparkled with a rainbow of colours. I will definitely be taking this on my holidays next year when I jet off to Dubai. The perfect way to accessorise a cute holiday outfit!£16.50
