Sammi's Guest Edit
The Scream Pretty jewellery she's wearing, and what she's wearing it with
Meet Sammi - an Italian-British instagram queen, blogger and co-founder of cult brand Hallow Collective. You may already be familiar with her impressive Bardot pout, fabulous tattoos and rockstar outfit posts - and if not, look her up for inspiration - there's always a post with a fresh take on fashion and jewellery trends to take inspiration from.
'There is nothing like working with small, independent brands that are doing things right. Having one myself, I am fully aware of how much time, energy and love is poured into having an independent. Scream Pretty has so much going on that I love: these ethically sourced & affordable pieces have a beautiful and refreshing energy. They look killer on, and feel so good to wear.
I'm particularly smitten with the Gold & Green Opal Huggie earrings (I love a good ear game)'.
So what are are the pieces in her winter wardrobe ?
First Up -the Gold & Green Opal Huggie Earrings - Although equally smitten with the pinky Opal Huggies Sammi chose these to accentuate the green of her rose neck tattoo and match her mostly gold jewellery wardrobe. The single pretty Starburst hoop plays off Sammi's simple gold Rook piercing.
On rapidly making a name for herself on instagram with an impressive following that has quickly exploded to 139k followers Sammi admits 'I only really started taking my style posts seriously and doing a Style Blog in February this year- it's easier said than done; but I think you have to only put something out there you really love - and try not to give a FK what people think - But it's working and I'm so grateful people are being positive about what I do!'
All the Spirals and Pearls!
Sammi's Scream Pretty gold spiral ring (worn on her thumb) with the Modern Pearl Ring two budget friendly pieces under £20 that look fabulous with Black French Manicure and spider web ring from Golden Grove and her Mother's diamond engagement ring.
Nail Envy abounds....
Sammi's street savvy style is influenced by grunge and rock, elevated by clever pairing with classic pieces like 50's trenches, capes and overcoats. She lists her favourite shops as Gucci, Asos, Reformation, Net a Porter and Top Shop. Recent looks mixes heavy metal t shirts with a sprinkling of some luxey Balenciaga and Gucci.
The Gold Huggie Hoops with clear crystal stones are a really versatile piece as they can be worn in cartilage and some rook piercings. Customers tell us they split a pair of tiny huggie hoops with friends to wear singly in multi-pierced ears.
Sammi 'I'll mix these with large gold hoops'
When she's not posting and sharing her style finds, Sammi is a mum to Casey and co- runs Hallow Collective with her friend Richard, finding time to pack orders when Casey's at nursery.
Definitely check out this independant for metal inspired tees and a new capsule collection called 'Covet' featuring a divine selection of high quality clothes designed to make perfect additions to your wardrobe. These are hand made in London. We particularly lust after their white silk shirt with button loops and bell sleeves and the denim flares...
