PRETTY COOL: Valet's Opulent Earrings
In case you’ve been snoozing on Valet, the resin masters have been cooking up chic statement earrings for awhile now, slowly becoming the numero uno brand we look to when we want to ~elevate~ a look. In cute colours (think reds, tortoise shells and pastel pinks) and poppin’ shapes, your ears will be all the happier for getting to know them better. Take the above gallery for example. Atty’s outfit—which comprises of a top and the coolest white jeans by NZ duo Paris Georgia—was taken to the nek level with the addition of a lil’ bit of Valet.
Outside of obsessing over Valet, we also took a minute to get to know country gal Atty a little better over a cuppa, right before she walked for Louis Vuitton. Get acquainted below!
Nickname: Atty, Ats
Star sign: Aquarius
Where are you originally from, and where do you live now?
I was born in London but raised in Australia, an hour outside of Sydney. I’m living out of my suitcase at the moment, but I’m about to move to New York!
What was your first impression of Paris? How do you feel about it now?
It was love at first sight—it’s just soooo beautiful! Although, I did find the language barrier a bit scary at first. I still love it—the culture and the architecture is amazing, and my french is a lot better now.
Where were your favourite places to eat, drink and shop in Paris?
For eating, I love Cafe Ruc or Popolare Pizzeria. For drinking, anywhere with some outside seats, heaters and blankets so I can watch the world go by. For shopping, I love walking around the Marais—there’s loads of vintage and antique stores, as well as designer labels! You can pretty much find anything there.
What three songs are on high rotation for you, and why?
This is a hard one! I’m always putting my songs on shuffle so I get a combo of new and old. I’m pretty obsessed with Drake’s ‘God Plan’ at the moment, probably because I love pretty much anything he does.
‘Let It Happen’ by Tame Impala is such a good song to dance to or bring my mood up. And, last but not least, ‘Shelter’ by SACHI is super catchy and I can’t stop listening to it!
What do you want to be when you grow up?
I’ll get back to you when I know the answer to that one! Hah!
What is it that makes you most proud about being a woman?
We’re tough as hell.
What are you most excited for in 2018?
Moving to New York!
