Happy Blog Birthday! 3 Years of Romantique and Rebel

Australia/ Dresses/ Italy/ Rebel Alexa/ Romantique/ Trousers/ Wardrobe


3 years ago, we started our fashion blog Romantique and Rebel, borne of our love for  fashion, decor, travel and everything beautiful. It’s been a wonderful journey so far,  during which we’ve been lucky enough to forge friendships with readers, met like-minded people at fashion events and have had endless fun inspiring each other, showcasing our different styles and philosophies.

The last year has been choc full  of life-enriching events,  providing us with a wealth of  inspiration: a wedding for Romantique, travel to Italy, Spain and Australia and even a new job for Rebel. At times, it’s been challenging to update the blog regularly whilst holding down busy jobs and planning a wedding, but the satisfaction of  sharing our passions always prevails.

A huge thanks to all our wonderful readers, Twitter and Instagram followers, and Facebook fans. We love each and everyone of you!

Here’s to a great year ahead!

Enjoy these flashbacks to our most popular posts from the last 12 months.

Fashion Classic: The Chanel Pearl Necklace

Accessoires/ Rebel Alexa/ Romantique

  Rebel Chanel pearl necklace

We have to thank Coco Chanel for one of the most timeless and elegant fashion classics: The Breton shirt, the quilted leather handbag, the monochrome look and  the long strands of pearls.

To not make a pearl necklace look dated, we like our pearls long, paired with the obligatory mariniere stripes (bien sur!) and with relaxed denim. Pop over a navy blazer or boucle jacket to complete the look.

Above: Pearls don’t have to be Chanel. Rebel’s casual, multi strand necklace is from Sum Cinque.

I love playful pearl necklaces as shown above on Anne Hathaway from the movie “The Devil wears Prada”. Consisting of several strands and playful charms thrown in. If you like your pearls whimsical like me, look for a mix of pearls and iconic Chanel charms such as the Eifel tower, the birdcage, the camellia, globes and bows.

  Romantique Chanel long pearl necklace

Just like Rebel, I like my gem necklace stylish but casual: Paired with a breton striped cashmere cardigan from Galliano and denim skirt from H&M,

On my wish list: Chanel pearls and Vichy gingham bows. J’adore!
