As seen on the Xfactor: The Kleshna Poppy

Show your support for The Royal British Legion this year in style. The yearly poppy appeal is a great British institution which celebrates our soldiers both past and present and draws attention to the fabulous work of The Royal British Legion.  The Royal British Legion support servicemen and women and their families, they spend £200,000 a day, every day of the year on direct welfare support. Wear your Poppy to show you care for those who risk their lives protecting our freedom and for those who have lost their lives fighting for our country.

Kleshna designs a range of Poppies every year to be worn in support of the Poppy appeal. Each Kleshna poppy sold donates 15% of each sale to The Royal British Legion. The poppies have a stellar celebrity following and have been seen on A-listers from Simon Cowell, Gary Barlow and Cheryl Cole to Dame Judy Dench and Helen Mirren. If you see a celebrity sporting a sparkling poppy you can be sure it’s a Kleshna.

Kleshna Poppies

Why we love them…

– They look super stylish on an Autumn coat or jacket lapel

– The pins and brooches are unisex and look fabulous on both men and women

– The pin lasts all year and wont tear or fall off like paper poppies

– You can wear your support on a pin, brooch, necklace, bracelet or ring

– And most importantly, by spending a bit more on your poppy you’ll be donating a lot more to the cause!

You can shop the selection of Kleshna Poppies online at fabulous, it’s Free UK Delivery on all orders and you can request free gift wrap! We suggest you order early because as soon as the judges are seen wearing them on this years X factor they’ll sell out!

fabulous Introduces… ChloBo!

Everyone at fabulous is really excited that we now stock ChloBo, the irresistibly collectable jewellery brand that’s taking the UK’s fashionistas and most stylish celebrities by storm!

The collection is made up of pretty Silver and Pearl bracelets and rosary necklaces, complete with boho themed charms and details that look stunning when piled high on the wrist, creating a relaxed but chic look.

ChloBo’s founder and designer, Chloe Moss, was inspired to create her own jewellery line after visiting the Indonesian island of Bali, a trip which extended from one week to two months! The island’s lustrous hand-crafted Silver products and laid-back lifestyle remain at the heart of the jewellery and are reflected in the beautiful and delicate pieces.

Since its launch in 2005 ChloBo has been adorning the arms of the most fashionable celebrities – Cheryl Cole, the girls from pop group The Saturdays, Alex Gerrard, and Elle MacPherson have all been snapped wearing their ChloBo pieces. Chloe herself models the jewellery in the stunning promotional shots and epitomises the modern yet classic style of the brand.

The collections are extremely versatile and look just as stunning worn casually in the day or to add glamour to an evening outfit. The Ju Ju collection launched for Spring/Summer ’11 and includes pieces with beads made from horn and resin, exuding a more relaxed feel. The Iconic range, which makes up the core ChloBo collection, features the popular Noodles and Dream Ball bracelets in Balinese Silver, and includes chunky charms such as tassels, Buddha heads and hearts, and can create a more classic look for the evening.

All of the bracelets by ChloBo are ideal for stacking and work really well worn next to other popular charm bracelets such as Thomas Sabo and Pandora. Prices start at £45 for the bracelets and £140 for the necklaces.

New York Fashion Week – Keep on Trend!

Combining the latest fashions on the catwalk with the next big thing in jewellery can be a tricky prospect, so here are our suggestions on how to keep your wardrobe and accessories on trend this season

New York Fashion week is drawing to a close, and while some are calling this year’s themes ‘restrained’, we think there were some fabulous and highly wearable new trends on display.

Lace and Fur

Subtle opulence is big this season, with lavish black lace and foxy fur trims featuring all over the catwalk this week. Whether you’re already on the look out for a place to show off a new lace dress, or keen to get your hands on some colourful fur boots that you’ll wear day in day out, there’s a perfect piece of jewellery just waiting to complete your new look! Pearls are the perfect companion to lace and fur, continuing the theme of sophisticated luxury without drawing too much attention away from your killer outfit, letting those elaborate lace designs and bold fur patterns shine.

Leather

Leather is back with a vengeance this Spring, in all shapes and sizes! Leather has been making fashionable appearances for many a year, but this season starts to see the use of black Leather in every day, more casual looks. Leather is all about confidence and attitude, and with the ‘rebellion’ style also taking off in the accessories world, the timing couldn’t be better! Bold jewellery with striking shapes and bursts of colour are the key to accessorising black Leather and showing off your wild side!
