Meet Helen. London stylist and fashion blogger over at Coco Mama Style. At Dose of Rose we love her effortless mama style that's always practical, but a little bit glam too, inspiring mama's all over to style up their everyday. We sat down for a quick chat to talk jewellery, gifting and party perfect looks just in time for Christmas.
What do you look for when choosing jewellery?
I’m definitely more of a silver girl. I look for pieces that are delicate and will stand out as beautiful pieces on their own, but also complement the other pieces in my jewellery box. I love to layer necklaces as well as multiple earrings. With a lot of jewellery worn at any one time, I choose chains and shapes that work together (I personally love stars, moons and hearts) however I don’t necessarily match and look for similar tones.
Describe your jewellery style in three words ...
Simple, timeless, (with a) twist!
Tell us what’s on your Dose of Rose wish list this Christmas …
The Asymmetric Moon and Star Earrings are on my wish list this Christmas (yes more celestial pieces for my collection!) and the Starburst Two Way Earrings are on my list for gifting - I get so many compliments when I wear mine as they’re so different and eye-catching!
Share your top tip for buying a jewellery gift …
Think of the type of jewellery the recipient wears and look for something to complement the pieces they own already, but add a personal touch to give it meaning from you.
Who’s your party style icon?
When it comes to glam style I love both Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman’s Strictly style; imagine getting to wear your fanciest frocks, heels and gems every weekend!
What will you be wearing for the party season?
My go-to outfit this party season for festive drinks will be my trusty black coated skinny jeans with a lace top and tux jacket or sequin blazer. Metallic heels are a must too! And of course, I’ll be layering up my Dose of Rose jewellery!
Finally, what does Christmas mean to you…
I’ve always loved the build up to Christmas and the fun with friends and family, and now as a mum to two girls, it’s all about sharing their excitement and making it truly magical for them.
