INDIEband Revisited

by Emma Dibaja on August 4, 2014

Do you remember when I wrote a blog post about a brand called INDIEband? Well, now I wanted to revisit the brand as they have expanded their collection to include a bigger variety of bracelets and are in the process of maybe introducing earrings as well.

I have my own bracelet, which I received last year from the artist herself. It has my son’s name stamped on it and I love it. I think I will place a new order (from the new collection), this time with the name of my beloved daughter.

Check out the earrings that are currently being tested. Lucky guinea pigs! ;)

Having been in the countryside with my children all summer, I’m constantly  greeted by all sorts of creepy crawlies: bees, ants, flies, spiders, beetles, you name it.

I was just walking in town and as we’re in summer I could not help but notice the sheer amount of tunics worn over figure-hugging or bootcut pants or leggings by women of all shapes and sizes. But what struck me the most was how not too many women know how to choose THE right shapes for [...]

I had a debate conversation with a friend of mine yesterday about the workability of polka dots with leopard print. My friend argued that they do match while I stuck to my opinion that these two patterns just don’t go together unless you’ve done it with care and precision. Anyone who has followed my blog might [...]

But having said that, I do like to keep myself up-to-date on what’s happening on the fashion scene. And my [...]

When you are creating an outfit out of several different prints and patterns, there’s a fine line between ‘just right ‘and ‘too much’. It’s a funny thing, but I really do think that having an eye for style and what looks good is just something that you’re born with. It’s always the same thing. Think [...]

Just today as I was walking in the city in search of some style inspiration, I started to think, what is fashion really about and how are we supposed to utilise it continuously. I mean, we are bombarded with new trends every month, if not every week. So is the idea that we’re supposed to [...]
