If you are an accessory lover like me, then you are going to love Moonstar Fashion Accessories. This online accessories store is the brainchild of sisters, Fagmeeda and Shaheema, and have grown so much since it’s founding in 2009. Moonstar stocks everything from scarves and tiaras to earrings and clutches, it’s basically your one-stop-shop for stunning and yet affordable accessories.
These super sweet sisters recently sent me a package filled with goodies from their store which was so exciting and thrilling to open. I received a messenger bag, 2 cocktail rings, a set of silver bangles, a bracelet and 2 chains – yup, too cool, I know!
When I ripped open the package and unwrapped all of the goodies inside, I already knew which were my favourites. The first thing that I spotted was the brown messenger bag. I love messenger bags, I simply cannot go shopping without one. They are so easy to carry around, it fits all of your essentials in it therefore barring you from storing any junk in there and they are just so darn cute. It was hard for me not to love this particular one as it’s the perfect size and such a versatile colour – a total YAY from my side!
Next, I attacked the accessories that were hidden inside the bag. Now, before I begin you should know something – accessories that are in shades of gold, bronze and rose-gold are my weakness, so when I see ’em, I’ve got to have ’em. I think it’s because colours in the gold family look so much better on Indian and olive-toned skin than silver does, but don’t get me wrong I still wear silver jewellery when the occasion and outfit calls for it, I’m not anti-silver now even though it may sound that way!
So from the accessories, this cocktail ring (R45) is definitely my favourite. It is absolutely gorgeous, and the flower within the resin is so pretty. I’m not sure if it’s real or just a craft one, but I love it nonetheless. The ring gives off this vintage vibe which makes it appropriate for both a day out shopping or a girls’ night out.
My next favourite is this bronzish detailed heart pendant necklace. Pendant necklaces, and statement necklaces, are a definite must have for your accessories collection. They work so well with sweaters, maxi skirts, shirts and cardigans -basically, with every type of outfit. I have something similar to this one from Woolworths, but of course I paid like over R100 and this one is just R45, a total steal at this price!
Now, on to the silver jewellery we go (see, I told you I wasn’t anti-silver!). When I first saw this huge blue cocktail ring (R45), I honestly thought it wouldn’t look good on my rather small hands – but I learnt that you cant judge a book..uh,a ring by it’s size? Yeah, that kind of makes sense. What’s special about this ring is that the shade of the ring is determined by the lighting in the room, so sometimes it’s dark blue and sometimes light but always so outstanding.
The 4 items that I mentioned above are my ultimate favourites from the package I received, I like the others too but it’s just that I’m totally in love with these 4! I thought I’d share a few more images with you guys, just so you can grasp how beautiful all the items really are.
