I see a furry butt in those photos! Hee hee!
Yes, there are actually *two* furry butts running around here causing trouble. I keep threatening to get more when the kids go off to college but my husband wants to keep it to two.
This stack is so YOU! Seriously, your personal style really shines through with this. Both classy and edgy at the same time. Thoroughly modern, slightly unexpected. I love it!

Thanks so very much—you are so sweet. It’s funny to think of having a personal style because most of the time I feel like I fell off the fashion train about 20 years ago. At this point I just sort of wear what I like and what’s comfortable (and that extends to sparklies as well). It’s nice to hear that that strategy can be translated as style!

Stopped by my boutique… A while ago, I’ve lost track of time… Wanted to share some photos of the Noeud ring. Love this piece so much!! The bow is really intricate, beautifully shaped, and it’s wide but not so wide that it isn’t wearable, and the underside of the bow curves upward a touch so adjacent fingers have some wiggle room, and the shank portion (it’s a pseudo double band situation) is *sturdy* and super comfy. Definitely on my list!!

Excuse the nails... They looked even worse before I hacked them short…

Just stunning! I have to say this is probably my all time favourite vca ring. You wear it well :)

I honestly can’t imagine a world where this ring is not yours. It looks like someone literally tied two diamond ribbons on your finger and just walked away.

+ a billion. Plus, it is always a bonus, to enjoy non "cardiac" palpitations. This is what Yssie's posts do. Good for your health!

This Noeud ring has your name written all over it! I can't imagine it on anyone else but you!

So this is a late entry, but here is my new-to-me 2021 HP! It’s my first RG VCA piece! :kiss2:

Happy lunar new year everyone!

Ooooh, loving your new colour addition. This is such a sweet and feminine piece. It'll compliment very well your beautiful existing collection.

It's a beautiful color pink! I am so excited for your venture into RG, too!

You know I am a sucker for anything pink and VCA! But I am totally surprised at how I am liking the VCA RG!

Thanks @Phoenix ! I've fallen helplessly into the trap of the VCA HP obsession!

I can see how you chose the RG perlee bangle as your first piece! I need to add something RG to coordinate with it but my studs will have to do for now!

BTW, did your SO onyx/diamond VA earrings ever get approved?

Haha, I understand your obsession.

There are so many pretty RG pieces. You will know when you come across a piece that sings to you.

Nope, no word. My SA/boutique manager was let go. My new SA doesn't seem to care very much about my business, which admittedly is non-existent these days, lol.

After seeing @RosieR ’s hammered YG bracelet and trying on a couple of hammered RG and YG pieces at auctions, I got my hands on a 10-motif hammered RG!

VCA’s red packets and cards (like @m-2-b ’s pics) are cute and very well received by my younger relatives :kiss2:

I’ll do a longer SMTB thread on the lengths and how I wear it as a triple-wrapped bracelet when I get some more time. For me, the 10 motif had to be multipurpose to justify its addition to my collection.

Happy new year of the rabbit everyone!

Oooh please do a SMTB thread with a lot of pics! I have been thinking about adding this to my collection to layer with my RG sweet pendant or my RG GMOP vintage pendant.

Oh I'm so curious about the triple wrap! My wrist is quite small and I would absolutely get the necklace to have a double purpose piece instead of just the regular bracelet if I could pull this off!

What are these? Cosmos? Are they VCA?

You know what, I posted this last night without my glasses on and I thought they were Frivole...but this morning looking more closely, I don't think they are! Oops! My bad!
