Your daily dose of pretty: Blackboard Pendant Necklace by Artisan Jouel

This blackboard pendant necklace is an awesome idea.

I would use it like  real-life Twitter, and update my status on it throughout the day: "The lady beside me is wearing a hideous jumper." "Lady in the hideous jumper just read my necklace and she looks grumpy." "Running away from angry lady in hideous jumper."

The blackboard pendant necklace is NZ$35.00 from Artisan Jouel on felt.co.nz.

Your daily dose of pretty: Orange Bodycon Dress by Dorothy Perkins

Tucked and pleated neckline and sleeve detailing is turning up a lot at the moment, and this dress is a beautiful example of how this detailing can lift an otherwise ordinary (but chic) dress to something special.

Gorgeous. I even love the colour. Despite the fact that it's orange. Don't ask me how that works, it just does. Does anybody else really hate the term "bodycon" though? To me it sounds like an aerobics class from the 80s. I did aerobics classes in the 80s - complete with high cut leotard, legwarmers, and permed hair. Not something I want to be reminded of.

The Orange Bodycon Dress is £28.00 from Dorothy Perkins.

Your daily dose of pretty: 100s & 1000s earrings by Saskian

I love 100s & 1000s. So much so that as far as I'm concerned icecream only has value as a delivery mechanism for 100s & 1000s. I never thought of doing this with them though:

Yes, that really is a pair of earrings made with real 100s & 1000s cast in resin. AWESOME!

The 100s & 1000s earrings are NZ$25.00 from Saskian's Store on felt.co.nz.

Your daily dose of pretty: Green Mini Messenger Bag from The Yellow Brick Road

How cute is this mini messenger bag?:

It reminds me of my first school satchel (in the days before we all had backpacks) only way cooler. My satchel was eye-scorching fluorescent pink - great for visibility but nowhere near as awesome as green with polka dots.

The Green Mini Messenger is NZ$49.00 from The Yellow Brick Road, or if you're in Auckland you can pop into their store at 279 Parnell Rd.
