My new obsession started with the white Givenchy dress from the Resort 2011 collection. Not the dress actually, but the golden harness the model wears. I needed to have something similar. But that’s not easy to find. So maybe not a harness but a really unique necklace?

These lovely beetles on Sea of Shoes are truly adorable and I want them all but still – a harness (which doesn’t look too gothic) would be even better.

This harness, which I saw on Life in Travel is incredibly beautiful. But I couldn’t find anything similar (too golden, too heavy, too gothic, too whatever), so I kept on searching.

Pamela Love designs amazing things, but the things I considered were nowhere available. Plus: some necklaces for example are too (not even gothic)… erm… dark maybe? Not me. The line is really thin.

After a long, long search I finally found what I was looking for at Bliss Lau. Again many harnesses are too “dark” for me, but they also have some which are simply “me”. I needed to make them “mine”. So this is what I finally ordered:

Can’t wait to see how it will look in real life. I ordered one size bigger than I usually would because I prefer it more loose. I guess I will have to be patient. It can take up to six weeks to be ready to be sent out.


  1. I love chains, to me it is a classic look! A few years ago I toyed with the idea of buying one of those harnesses, but in the end I decided I’m not so bold. In the last issue of Town & Country I believe they showed a Bottega Venetta look of a black suit worn with a long beetle necklace, it looked very chic. Don’t think I saved that issue though.

  2. The one you ordered is the harness I have been craving from Bliss Lau FOREVER! Her designs are really interesting and I would wear each and every one, but I really love the simplicity of that specific one, great choice!

  3. I love the one you chose. These harnesses are really intriguing, but I totally understand how difficult it is to find one that works for you. Very excited how you will like the ‘real thing’.
