Outfit: Fall Is An Alchemist


It's been a wild and wonderful whirlwind of a weekend, the first of several busy weekends this month.
Friday started off bumpy with a delayed night flight to England, but Saturday we hit our stride exploring and prepping for the main event--a wedding I photographed on Sunday. Now, I'm typing this post up tucked up on a stranger's sofa, tired but elated. My suitcase is half packed and a few feet away because tomorrow we'll be flying home again for a more ordinary week before next Sunday when I strap all my photography gear on and do it again. But these pictures were taken earlier, on a quieter autumn day of aimless meandering and chestnut gathering; watching autumn work her magic turning what was once green to gold.  
The proverbial icing on the cake for this weekend is: my new jewelry collaboration with Mejuri launching today. Over the past six months we've worked together a few lovely designs that take their inspiration from the sea. It's a natural source of inspiration for me as an island dweller who can't get enough trips to the seaside no matter the season or the weather! There's a nod to greyer days and stormy waters in the black pearl pieces and a sweet starfish chain ring made for summer adventures. My favorite piece in the collection is the sand ring; a perfect fishtail braided ring inspired by the intricate patterns in handknit Aran sweaters and my own love of braids. It's a beautiful, textured ring when worn alone, but I love it layered with the black pearl ring. See the full collection I helped design and curate with Mejuri here--although all of the pieces will certainly be highlighted on my blog in future posts since I can't seem to stop wearing them!

Hi! I love your collection, it's really lovely :-)
The sand ring that you designed makes me think of the witch ring, check the story here http://www.antiquejewel.com/en/explanation-on-witch-rings-by-adin-antique-vintage-and-estate-jewelry.htm (it's also fun to see it in real)

Oh man that dress! Does that site ever have sales?

Rebecca, A Clothes Horse said...

@Lady Emily, My dress is by Act Three Apparel which is more of an indepdent brand than a site, but yes definitely if you look at her past collections then things are on sale & there are other shops that also carry her pieces (I think she has a stocklist on her site). Her prices are really reasonable when you consider things are ethically made in Canada in small collections.
