My daughter took an instant shine to the Lisa Angel travel jewellery box from Silhouette London and what’s more she was pleased it will fit with the colour of her bedroom so she can have it on display. It’s a travel jewellery box but for a teenager it is perfect for every day use. It’s a rounded square case with a rose gold zip fastening which really brings the colours together. This one is a gorgeous pinky lavender colour made of vegan leather.
There’s sections to store rings and my daughter likes that she can see her necklaces and pendants and team them up at a glance. She managed to store earrings in there securely and I like that they’re not rattling about loosely.
My daughter used one of the lined grooves for one of her bracelets and that fits nicely too. There’s a little area in the lid where the Lisa Angel branding is where you could slip in extras. We’ve discussed popping in a little mirror to really maximise the useful nature of the jewellery box.
Silhouette London is a boutique which stocks items aimed at girls and young women age 2-21 and with a bit of emphasis on that girly look, there’s nothing androgenous here and it’s nice to see. The company has been around since 2012.
The owner describes herself as a mum of two who had struggled to find beautiful party outfits that really hit the mark in terms of age, price, quality and fit. I think it’s easy to agree that can be hard to find sometimes. Especially if it’s something which will make both mum and daughter happy. That’s a lot of criteria to fulfil!
She was looking for designer dressed for the right age groups but without the enormous price tag and so Silhouette began.
It would make a lovely gift for a child of almost any age. I imagine there’s plenty of women who would like it too, the colour theme is very much a trend at the moment. It’s a petite box but it stores plenty of items, measuring 11.5cm x 5.5cm x 11.5cm. It’s a great size for travel, I’m certain it would fit perfectly inside a suitcase or overnight bag without losing lots of space and keeping treasured items safe.
Priced at £20.00 you can find the jewellery box here. There’s another in grey and lilac amongst other options and lovely age appropriate jewellery which could be gifted besides the box and would look beautiful displayed inside.
I like the ethos of the company in the way they support #GivingthruFashion. They’re joined up with Teens Unite to offer young people with a cancer diagnosis the opportunity to enjoy – in their words – a Cinderella moment – for an important event in their lives.
There’s also a pre-loved section on the website giving buyers the opportunity to buy a designer garment at a reduced price, I imagine that will make a special address more affordable to many. You can search by designer, or by occasion or even the type of garment. From party to prom and back again.
