Jewelry Inspiration Straight from the Catwalk: Dior 2013

Thursday, July 25, 2013

For some reason, I never thought of buying fine or costume jewelry from places like Dior or Fendi.  Not only are they generally over-priced, but high-end brands should stick to what they do best: clothes, bags and shoes. Leave the jewelry-making to the jewelry-makers.

And when I say over-priced, I mean selling pieces for a ridiculous amount of money. A pair of vintage (aka. USED!) Chanel earrings will set you back 2,200 AED. That's 700 USD for something GOLD PLATED.

Even though I would never buy from them, I do like to check out their latest arrivals for inspiration.

This week, I share the best picks from Dior's 2013 jewelry collection.

(Just FYI: While researching for this post, I realized that the Dior stitching that we know and love actually has a name: It's called "Cannage".)
