Anna Lou (of Anna Lou of London fame) and I have a number of things in common, the most obvious being a love of all things jewellery. When Anna asked me to do a special guest edit of the brand’s newsletter featuring five of my favourite pieces, to say I was delighted would be to do the situation an injustice. I was about to head off on some travel adventures in Morocco so my thoughts gravitated towards anything that would infuse my mountain treks and market wanderings with a nostalgic retro exoticism.
Mission quite easily accomplished: Anna Lou’s spring offering covers the desirable spectrum of black and white checkerboard bangles through to luxurious silk scarves, transforming you from modern mod to ’50s pinup and back again with a mere change in accessories.
Some travel snaps from my Instagram, wearing Anna Lou of London pieces.
When not going for bold statements I can vouch for Anna Lou’s range of inspirational necklaces. My pick has the single word ACHIEVE: because we all need a reminder like that sometimes.
Head to annalouoflondon.com and join the mailing list if you want to see my full edit – it’ll be hitting inboxes soon.
Update: you can also ow find the edit on the Anna Lou of London Facebook page.
