Dress like a Diva for less

IT’S cheap, fashionable and addictive for Diva lovers like Rockhampton’s Jess Judd.

Costume jewellery is the must-have fashion accessory this festive season, with bright pinks and vibrant blues, classic black, stunning silvers and hot gold looks making an appearance.

And the best thing is, with prices ranging from $7.95 right through to $45 a piece, when something goes out of fashion, you can pick up the latest trend.

Jess, the manager of the popular Diva Costume jewellery chain at Stockland Rockhampton, said with an average of 510 items selling each day already, she was expecting a massive Christmas at the new Stockland store.

The bubbly blonde, who has a collection of Diva jewellery that fills half her bedroom, said girls aged eight right through to 80-year-old women were into costume jewellery.

The 22-year-old said although she was getting ready for the mad last-minute Christmas shopping rush, right now the focus was on girls and women accessorising their festive season party outfits.

“A lot of girls come in at this time of the year looking for accessories to match different party outfits,” Jess said.

Jess said while silver counted for more than half the sales this month, Sunset Boulevard which incorporated corals, fuchsia and hot pinks were one of the top sellers this season.

“We’ve had no pink all year, but it’s been so sought after I dare say we’ll bring it back,” Jess said.

Another trendy range is the beachy and tropical Aloha incorporating different shades of blue and turquoise.

And for the younger girls, authentic sticker branded Sesame Street jewellery sets are a big craze this Christmas.
