Oh, Deer!

As you can see, Ip & Audrey has a new header! This one is a bit more stylized and, I think, better fits the site. This is, of course, a blog about fashion, but it's also a personal page devoted to the way I see the world as a writer and performer (though I try not to talk about myself too much!). But I do like sharing my opinions with you, and hearing yours in turn. A style blog is a great way to both catalog one's wardrobe and chronicle daily life. Right?

Now, you may remember Ip & Audrey’s original header, featuring my site’s unofficial mascot—Ip the deer!The new header is all about Audrey, but Ip still has a special place in my heart. As I mentioned in my first-ever post, I love the story about Audrey Hepburn and Pippin, her pet deer. That story is what inspired my fashion blog in the first place. I also talked about my special deer pendant from Tiffany’s, a gift from my aunt. The necklace is near and “deer” (ha) to me not only because its sale proceeds funded a wildlife charity, but also because it reminds me of Audrey and her precious friend.

I wear my pendant almost every day, but I recently came upon another deer necklace that may just rival the one I own…

Astley Clarke's reindeer pendant comes in brushed gold or rhodium and would punch up any outfit. I’d love it with a simple neutral sweater or even an LBD.I’m also loving their gold reindeer cuff. f Ip & Audrey had its own accessories shop, I’d want to offer gorgeous pieces like this! They perfectly match my personal aesthetic; they’re classic, edgy and eye-catching, exactly what I’d want to wear every day.Check out the rest of Astley Clarke's "jewellery" (Brit spelling!) shop for even more stunning conversation pieces! Now I’m slipping on my deer pendant for luck and applying for some editor jobs. Yikes!

And don't forget: Tomorrow is the last full day of my designer purse giveaway. Enter here!
