Alice's Wonders - A treasure trove of sweetie coloured statement jewellery

 
 
After writing a post about a lovely Kate Spade necklace I had seen, I was contacted by Cathy who runs Alice's Wonders, a website which sells lovely statement jewellery in a sweetie shop selection of colours.
 
Having taken a look at the site, I fell in love with a couple of pieces which Cathy sent through to me to try. First of all I chose the blue vintage style statement necklace from Alice's Wonders (£9.75) - seen above.
 
Now, I know that I look a bit peaky in this photo below but so would you if you had just arrived for a two hour birthday party in a soft play area at 4pm on a Saturday evening. What a ridiculous time for a party. What idiot would arrange a party for that time? Oh that would be me then.
 
I really enjoyed wearing the necklace though and lots of people commented on how they liked it too. It's a fantastic price, a good weight and compares really favourably to many other pieces of statement jewellery that I own, some of which were much more expensive.
 

I also chose this statement pink necklace (£9) because predictably I fell for its colour and also its scale - it's not too chunky but substantial enough to be the right side of not too dainty - which is probably the most convoluted term ever but it describes it well!


Here I'm wearing the necklace with a very simple outfit and it just adds that all important splash of colour to it.


By way of background, Cathy is an ex City worked turned stay at home Mum to three small children. She has an avid interest in fashion and is very keen on a necklace, or two, or three. She was always looking for something slightly different to the High Street and loved Shourouk, J Crew, Kate Spade, Stella & Dot but on a much smaller budget and eventually she found a source of statement jewellery that offered just that - and so Alice's Wonders was born.

I'm also loving these pieces which you can find here. I can definitely vouch for their quality and general yumminess (that well known fashion term).


You can find Cathy on twitter at Alice's Wonders or you can contact her via email at aliceswonders01@gmail.com

  1. What great colours. Definitely worth a look into. Please could I ask where your lovely jacket is from in the first photo?

    1. Hi, yes they are lovely and bright and would do a great job of pepping up a less colourful outfit. The jacket was the Annabel (I think!) jacket from Whistles. I don't think that it's available anymore but you may find one on ebay. It came in navy too.

  2. One of those necklaces is almost a true copy of my gorgeous J Crew Fan Fringe necklace. Only £100 cheaper. Bit cheeky really.

    2. It's always a tricky one isn't it? If you've bought the expensive one first it's a bit galling but if you can't afford the expensive one and find a cheaper alternative it's a great feeling. Primark, Zara and many others make their money by copying more expensive brands (remember the yellow and white checked copy Louis Vuitton coat by Zara last year) and J. Crew probably copied theirs from somewhere else. I'm all for saving a few pennies wherever I can but I'm sure the J. Crew one is divine!
