I was never one to get into the swing of Christmas too much as a kid. It was normally too hot and humid to consider clothing outside of a swimsuit and I spent many of my Christmasâ€™ as a kid swimming in a pool, running under the sprinkler or being in the sea all while enjoying a BBQ with loved ones. As an adult, my Christmas season has become more about celebrating through accessories and outfits thanks to working most of the silly season and still enjoying that time with family and friends. Through pinup, I found a love for Christmas I never had before through the wealth of accessories and outfits that are Christmas themed. I have a number of Erstwilder designs from previous years in my overflowing brooch drawer, but this years designs were something a bit different and I wanted to share my favorites from the release with you all.
Erstwilderâ€™s latest Christmas range has been designed by Australian Designer Donna (owner of Kaiju Candy) and she has done an absolutely smashing job. I adore the use of non-traditional Christmas colours and the fun twist on some Christmas classics. My favorites were two brooches I felt I could wear at other times of the year without raising too many questions and the statement Christmas necklace which really stood out to me as well.
The Merry Christmas Gingerbread heart necklace was something a bit different to what I normally love but I couldnâ€™t go past it. It was so cute and pretty and a piece that I knew I could wear with a lot of different outfits with ease. I also loved the simple writing style and small holly accents on this necklace and can tell its gonna be a December favorite.
The Kiss Me Kindly brooch is such a bright pretty take on such a traditional Christmas piece. I love the dots throughout the holly and the lighter tones throughout. While this is a Christmas Holly piece I feel I could wear it throughout the year with the right outfit, which is one reason it caught my eye.
The Past Midnight brooch is one that felt especially special. I come from a household where my mum enjoyed collecting clocks so this brooch is quite a sentimental piece for me and one you can easily wear all year round. I also love the dangle detail in this piece too.
Erstwilder pieces are made out of layered resin and feature a locking back. As a long time wearer and collector of Erstwilder I adore their fun designs and their drive to do their best.
Erstwilder’s Christmas release is now available in their store featuring 15 designs that also include 4 fan favorite recolours! You can buy direct from Erstwilder or from the wealth of stockists. Some of my favorite stockists are Gwynnies, Natasha Marie Clothing, Hug Me Harry, That Shop and you can check for other stockists here!
I hope you’re all able to snap up your favorites and are as excited for the upcoming Christmas season as I am with so many amazing goodies to choose from!
Til next time darlings.
