Who is Happiness Boutique

Today I want to introduce your to Happiness Boutique. They are German fashion-forward, modern jewelry brand based in Berlin. Their style is vintage inspired timeless classic. Think along the lines of family heirloom, but made with affordable materials for the “normal woman”, i.e. for Lieschen Müller or Erika Musterfrau as one would say in German or Jane Doe like we would say in the United States. Their mission is
Happiness is a journey, not a destination. There is no way to happiness. Happiness is the way. - Happiness Boutique #fashionquote Click To Tweet

The crystals of this piece break the visible light into its its components so it sparkles. See the reflections on the matte table and the “stars” on the crystals as well as the hints of rainbow colors. It’s hard to catch the beautiful color play with a photo.

When they asked me to review two items from their new collection, I took the opportunity to (re-)introduce them to my readers. In case you missed my review of their statement necklace, let me say I love my costume jewelry from them. It’s perfect for dressing up and any women on a budget. I’m one of them. Moreover, whenever I wear my pieces from them, they always receive a lot of compliments. Who doesn’t like to hear “I love your necklace!”?

Why I chose these costume jewelry pieces

I picked the joy statement necklace in serenity blue. The exciting color caught my eyes. The piece also reminded me of a necklace of my late Mom that I adored. She wanted me to have it, but wanted to keep it as a keepsake of her Dad, my grandfather.

The second piece of my choice was a dazzling vintage inspired statement necklace that looks like a family heirloom from the strass-jewelry of the roaring twenties of the last century.

Really special pieces of high quality costume jewelry

Like the last time when the package arrived, my first thought upon opening was what great pieces to boost my mood! They can make every day a special day. Their sparkle is just breathtaking. The crystals break and reflect the light even more than the photos can give justice. Really glamorous! <3

How to style heirloom inspired costume necklaces

These neckbands can easily add the glamour needed to transfer a day work outfit to be ready for date night. They are the perfect accessory to make an entrance on First Friday or at a formal reception and to dress-up a mother-of-the-bride/groom dress. You can also wear them when being the maid-of-honor at your best female friend’s wedding or when going to the opera. The vintage inspired piece is also perfect for the bride. And of course, for all those Dancing Queens among you, my lovely readers.

I wore my glam statement necklace, for instance, at a performance at the International Dances and modeled it at a historic fashion show.

Besides the above straight forward styling ideas, here some ideas how to use the pieces to dress up a casual look. You can wear these beauties to glam up a pair of jeans and white T-shirt. These faux gems also look stark on a knit sweater (see photos).

There is no reason to keep your collection for “good.” Wear them everyday as every day is good enough. Enjoy them before your heirs do! Be happy like a clam. You not only serve it, no, you owe yourself happiness.

You are in charge of your own happy life. #happiness Click To Tweet

See how the sparkle lifts up and brightens the brown with black winter office look. This outfit needs a light pop of color and the vintage inspired neckband c/o Happiness Boutique does right that! Other outfit items: Siena Studio leather skirt, GNW brown with black leopard print tights, Antonio Melani booties, GNW Luxe cashmere sweater and Hermes collier de chien bangle (all own)

What I like about Happiness Boutique jewelry

The craftsmanship of their items is outstanding. Like always before, you can’t see any traces of glue. Thus, it’s not obvious on first sight that these gems are costume jewelry. Therefore, they are also great for non-family related formal events like accessories to wear at an inaugural ball or at the opera. When worn in a less exquisite environment the pieces look like (what they are) investment costume jewelry. I really love that they nevertheless are very affordable even when on a budget.

Excellent price-performance ratio

Since the jewelry is classic with a touch of vintage, they go with a lot of clothes in your wardrobe and will serve as a goto accessory for years to come. Thus, they will go below a dollar per wear in less than a year when you wear them just for going out. My criterion for a great deal. However, these pieces will make you feel so happy about your look that you probably will wear them more often than that. 😉

When you can only buy one item to update your wardrobe this spring, invest in high quality costume jewelry. #budgetfashion Click To Tweet

Who will love these necklaces

These beautiful pieces are perfect for all women who love to go out, dance and dress up. The pieces that I picked are also great as accessories for weddings or other formal events. However, they are also great items for everyday life.  Are you more into whimsical, smaller pieces? Happiness Boutique also has a great collection of those. I definitely can recommend their products to you.

    Ah those necklaces are lovely. I love the bling so fun and they look good with both looks even though they are very different.
