Claudia Bradby Pearls Plus 15% Off for Readers



I have never owned my own set of pearls.I have borrowed many in the past and I do have a fake pair of earrings, but that's it. Mother has a lovely set (no borrowing allowed there) Wrapped away under lock and key.
So when Claudia Bradby got in touch and asked if I would like to review a set of their pearls I was over the moon. I chose the Mimi Set * a delicate necklace and bracelet made of fresh water pearls with a silver clasp to nice to be hidden. I chose to wear it over the weekend as I had a party to go to.


      The pearls arrived in a beautiful gift box and each piece had it's own little velvet pouch to prevent       scratching .
      I love the movement of the skirt, it was really windy and I loved how it swished  about in the              wind. The whole outfit fitted great with the pearls.



The bracelet fitted me perfectly at 19 cm long and you can feel the quality when your wearing it and the silver bean clasp has a special lock shut fastening.




The necklace is a lovely length too at 42 cm I kept this length in mind for wearing with other outfits. I think this length will go with almost anything. I always love that classic look in the winter, a sweater, jeans or trousers with pearls. You will catch me later wearing a white shirt, jeans and pearls. a classic look that I love.


The pearls are all hand knotted and the bean shaped clasp is silver. They feel really special on


As you can see its so windy and just about to pour down yet again ! One thing is missing Pearl Earrings!
 I need to choose myself a pair to match this lovely set.


I think these are beautiful and will finish the set off nicely. the perigrina earrings are exquisite and I am going to drum it into the other half that I need them to complete the set.
Do you have yourself a classic set of pearls ? Please do take a look at Claudia Bradby

There is a special offer for my readers, 15% off with the code VMJUNE15 till the end of June so you will have to quick !
XO Laurie

  1. What a beautiful outfit! That skirt is absolutely gorgeous. I LOVE the pearl necklace and those ear-rings at the bottom of the post. I've got a couple of petrol necklaces that I inherited but hubby and I are unsure as to whether they're real or not. I ought to take them to a jewellers to find out. I don't wear them enough because they're quite long and I'd prefer them to more like the length of the ones you're wearing!

  11. Awww Laurie that metallic pleated maxi skirt is stunning and I love that you chose dainty, elegant pearls for this chic and feminine, dressy look. Love that you paired the skirt with pewter metallic accessories. Both the bag and shoes are gorgeous. You look divine in this! Don't forget to linkup with me tomorrow, gorgeous woman.

  12. Hi Laurie, I love pearls they hold such a classic look. My Mom had a beautiful set of pearls handed down from her grandmother ... unfortunately when Momma passed the pearls didn't get handed down as she had intended ... I love to wear pearls with a casual look and when I'm dressed for the ballet for a more polished look. Thanks for sharing with us at #SimplifyWednesdays

    xxoo,

  16. I've never been very fond of white pearls, Laurie, being more a fan of the baroque South Sea Pearl instead. But then again, you probably already guessed I'd say that :) notwithstanding, I can most certainly appreciate them on other women and I really love how yours looks. So dainty and feminine but completely in synch with your overall outfit. That skirt is GORGEOUS.

  28. Laurie, I stopped by earlier and tried to leave a comment, but my computer decided to be stubborn and wouldn't let me. So I'm trying again.

    How lovely is this outfit! You look like a movie star here. The shimmer of your skirt and bag perfectly match the sheen on your pearls! Gorgeous!!

  32. Pearls are the ultimate luxury and these look lovely. I have some very unusual green fresh water pearls which look just like beads - I'm always at pains to share the fact that they're real! I saw this photo of you in this wonderful skirt in a link up and kept meaning to comment so here I am at last. I love this full length pleated number and think it must have felt so gorgeous to wear. That swishing as you walk feels lovely especially when it's a maxi length. You look amazing in this outfit x
