I’ve always had the travel bug. I would find every reason to go anywhere I could think of. I volunteered at a Turtle Conservatory in Costa Rica, I took a college credit abroad to spend a few weeks in Tuscany (its amazing I got any work done, it’s SO beautiful there) and, like many travel junkies, I back packed across Europe. Believe me when I say ‘Backpacked’ because that is the truth, I was gone for 6 weeks and only had what could fit in a backpack. Now, those who know me know that I’m not really the rustic outdoorsy type, and I certainly wasn’t going to travel to Paris and Italy without some outfits that would be appropriate for the dance-filled nights I was hoping for. One might ask how you can pack 6 weeks worth of clothes into a backpack and still manage to be stylish (as you should! It was pretty tricky and I’m still amazed I could manage it!), but there was one simple trick, JEWELRY! It's easy to pack and instantly steps up any outfit, the perfect solution! 

On that trip I really made my few outfits work hard for me, I’d tie scarves around my waist for belts, I’d wear beach skirts as party-ready mini dresses and I’d wear a long chain necklace in more ways than I can count! I’d tie it with a knot, wear it as a giant wrap bracelet, layer it into a choker, I’d even wear it around my waist! 

Years later when I started Dolorous I knew I wanted to make pieces of jewelry that could be that versatile. Jewelry that could be the one piece you could take away for any vacation and have you ready for wherever your travels may take you. And so, my convertible jewelry styles were born. Cut to present day: the collection now has over a dozen styles of jewelry that are designed to be able to be worn in a multitude of ways (without looking as makeshift as some of my teenage travel styles undoubtedly did). These styles make up many of my favourites because the concept holds such a special place in my heart. 

You may be wondering what brought on this bout of nostalgia. Well, today I’m packing for a two week trip to Italy and sorting through my many Dolorous styles to decide what to bring! Here are a few of my most versatile pieces that I’m considering for my trip.

Long Tassel Lariat 
This elegant, open style wrap necklace can be anything from a belt to a choker! That kind of versatility is just what I need to keep my suitcase light and my outfits on point!

Pandora Convertible Body Chain
The single most versatile Body Chain in the entire Dolorous collection, above are just a few ways you can style it! From necklace to Harness this piece effortlessly transitions from day to night!

Brass Rings Lariat
This sweet and simple lariat it ideal for everyday wear! I can pull it tight and long, wear it loose, or even have it hanging down my back for an evening look!
