A/W 2010 - The Skullery Collection

We've been championing skull jewellery for what feels like yonks and now they've got a seat in the key jewellery trends of A/W 2010, there's no stopping us. So, yeh, The Skullery pays homage to our trusted friend, the skull!

This range will channel your inner goth and add a macabre edge to your outfit (not all jewellery is pretty ya know!). This collection is where the most sparkly of skulls meets the downright ugly, producing the most amazing and enthralling of jewellery collections.

So, which pieces out of this ghoulish bazaar are we hopelessly head over heels with? Well to start is this Black Crystal Skull Ring, priced at £10 (we also have a pink and green version). Statement hand candy, only it's anything but sweet. This ring needs to be paired with a bright outfit and should never be seen with top-to-toe black!

These Gold & Skull Crossbone Earrings are so dainty they could almost be deemed cute. Being so small they add an edge to standard gold stud earrings but are not in-your-face skull. With them being priced at just £5, they're an ideal way to update to the latest trend without breaking the bank!
We adore this Black & Red Skull Locket, priced at £14. So unusual, mixing the delicate red rose with the grotesque skull and crossbone. Also, the locket hangs on an antique gold hook, adding yet more detail. We're particularly attracted to this necklace's quirkiness and its re-defining of the traditional locket. L-O-V-E!

A/W 2010 - Acrylic Art Collection

We love this time of year, September issues of mags (have you SEEN Vogue?) and sensational new collections being launched everywhere you look. Exciting times for the discerning fashionista!

To join in with the August excitement, we've added another A/W 2010 collection, Acrylic Art, to our website. Acrylic Art is one of the more zany Chelsea Doll collections, but we love it! Wearing one of these creations will certainly give your neck some time in the limelight.

The pieces are all made from acrylic (if you hadn't already guessed from the title) and each is fantastic in its own right, buuuuut we had to select a few to show you. The first one is this Bleeding Love Necklace, priced at £10. We've had a few cutesie love necklaces in over time but this one is probably (secretly) our favourite! Sooo much 'arder than the pretty silver or gold versions.

Moving onto a more elegant number, the Ink Effect Butterfly Necklace is beautifully artistic and makes a statement in a completely different way to Bleeding Love. A unique piece of jewellery and priced at only £10 - STEAL!
Lastly, we had to add an element of fun and we think nothing brightens the mood like this LOLZ Necklace. In the brightest of yellows, well that and the fact that there's a giant LOLZ staring you in the face, it screams with glee! Set the scene with this necklace, at a bargainous £10!
If none of the above have taken your fancy, then take a look at other pieces in the Acrylic Art collection. There's a Mixtape Necklace, Vintage Detective Comic Necklace and Pin-Up Girl Necklace, to name just a few. It takes all sorts!

A/W 2010 - Leather & Lace Collection

Ladies & gentlemen, please give a warm welcome to our first A/W 2010 collection - Leather & Lace...

The ethos with this, our first A/W, collection is that opposites attract and often complement each other. So, instead of shying away from mixing concepts, they should be embraced and worn with confidence. Leather and lace are two of the key trends for the upcoming season and we love the look of the goth-glam leather pieces mixed with the delicate, ladylike lace pieces.

Our fave (ssshh! don't tell anyone!) in the Leather & Lace collection is this beautiful Beige Lace & Jewel Cuff, priced at £8. Adding a hint of pretty and girly to an edgy outfit, this piece is particularly eye-catching because of its opulent jewels and bows. We are in love!

Next up, is this super-gorge Black & Gold Lace Stone Alice Band, priced at £8. The perfect accessory to rock and vamp-up a look. With its lace panelling, which is decorated with gold netting and black stones, it adds another dimension to the most basic of outfits.

These Red Faux Leather Flower Earrings are amazing and are priced at an even more amazing £5. Bright and beautiful, they add much-needed colour to dull Autumn days and nights - a true statement piece! Just make sure they're worn with tied-back hair to get the full effect of their beauty and to stand out from the crowd.

Go check out the other pieces in our A/W 2010 Leather & Lace collection. As a reader of our blog you can get an exclusive 10% discount off your order with the code BLOG10.

New Season Hair Accessories

We're a little bit in love with hair accessories at the moment. It's been hair-accessory-a-go-go at Chelsea Doll, we have MASSES of them arriving on a weekly basis ready for the A/W season and we just can't help trying them on and creating new looks. Oh we do love a headpiece!

Hair accessories can achieve so many different looks, from the classic and elegant (think wedding hair) to the completely insane (think Lady Gaga). There's a look for everyone and a hair accessory for every mood.

Feathers are massively on Autumn's style agenda and we couldn't be happier! They look exceptionally graceful, adding a hint of the 1920s but also a not-to-be-understated vibrancy. Our A/W collections are set to be awash with feathers, think peacock and LOUD! The Black Roxette Feather Hairband is £12 and is the first to be launched in its range. We just can't get enough!

Ladylike elegance and glamour is a top tip for the new season. Looks are set to be polished with a 1950's edge. The jewelled hair clip is an absolute must to accessorise this style. We adore this Silver & Diamante Bead Clip and the 1950's filmstar razzle-dazzle it exudes. Priced at £8 it's a perfect party accessory!

The next hair accessory trend is a firm favourite here at Chelsea Doll HQ. Personally, we've coveted hair bows for soooo long and now get the opportunity to feature them in our A/W collections, yay! Hair Bows are going to be huuuuge! Big or small, 80's or 90's, you've gotta be seen in one! Throughout August we'll be adding lots of hair bows to our collections. The two we're most lusting after at the moment is the Green Bow Alice Band, priced at £6 and the Floral Bow Hair Clip, a snip at only £4.

So we've shared our love for the hair accessory and given you an insight into what heady delights you can expect from Chelsea Doll during the new season. Hair accessories are BACK and long may they reign!
