LKISObsession: On Virgin Radio, Being Beaded


Today on the Virgin Radio blog (@Virginradio96 ) I am talking

all things beaded! Read it there:


Or right here:

Anyone remember beaded friendship bracelets? Loading up your wrist with beaded bracelets in bright colours was a sign of summer. Well, while I don’t think my girls are gonna be sporting those crayon coloured accessories this season, it got me thinking about how beaded accents are the perfect way to invoke that same vibe and also stay super-on trend with all the hippy-inspired summer festival fashion floating around.

 How did I manage to get on the beaded bandwagon? I recently bought these House of Harlow moccasins at HR2 (on serious sale by the way) and that is how it all began.

Other beaded beauties have I found on my search are these Brunello Cucinelli beaded kicks that are my ideal summer boots.

I am not sure a motorcycle could be more perfect that this one by Haute Hippie.

And, of course, you can always go the totally classic beaded route with a fringe dress like this one from Kate Moss for Top Shop.

Or, you can update the look with a matching jacket and shorts, beaded of course, like this Top Shop get-up.

Finally, there is always the beaded bag. In Fendi’s case it is the beaded baguette and in peachy-nude this mega investment will always be in style.

 Or if you aren’t feeling flush, fashion need not be compromised with these reasonably priced beaded bag and backpack from River Island.

If being inspired by beads isn’t enough for ya, you can always order your very own friendship bracelet kit from Kitson and get back to your 12 year old roots, when all that mattered was what flavour popsicle you got and how long you had until the school year started again.
