Well, anyone who knows me, knows how superstitious I am, about everything! I say “touch wood” around 5 times a day, AT LEAST. So when I saw the new Vivienne Westwood ‘Touch Wood’ necklace, I knew instantly, “THATS BLATANTLY MADE FOR ME!”
This wondrous offering from the Spring/Summer 08 range is currently only available online, via the http://www.hervia.com official website and is priced at a demure £70! bargain!
The only thing I’d change about this necklace however, is that I’d have used a full 3D orb as the pendant (as seen below); and subsequently, have the “Touch Wood” lettering around the orb’s sphere; rather than using a flat piece of silver. I think it would have been more visually appealing, and more to Vivienne Westwoods signature style; despite the small gold orb being attached in addition. What do you think?! Would it look better as a 3D orb, or is the above, just as nice?!?!?!
-Orb Locket, £190.
So thats another item to add to my “to buy list”, crikey, this list is going to be never ending! Bring on pay-day!

I absolutely LOVE the New Tatty Devine collection for Spring/Summer 08.
I especially adore the 3-D glasses, which actually work!!
The item above is the large version, and costs a mere £35; definitely a statement piece!
There are also smaller pendants and pin brooches available. An enamel version available too; which also includes earrings, cufflinks and a badge; and is slightly cheaper!
Other items available in the collection include popcorn attached to chains, cocktail glasses, film reels and sexy legs!
All items available to order from http://www.tattydevine.com (and other stockists such as Urban Outfitters…)
