Rad jewels that will not break your bank but may very well break your back.
Sorry, I meant jewelz.
Does anyone else in this chatroom agree that jewelry and particularly bracelets are frustrating to wear in colder months? I don’t feel like devoting a generous chunk of my day to meticulously unweaving my knit sweater in an effort not to completely obliterate the entire sleeve care of the rhinestones/brass/charms/studs quietly dwelling on my wrist. No one can even see them, damnit. And it’s cold. And they are chunky and as such make wearing a coat with slim sleeves even more difficult.
I didn’t know I maintained this aversion toward necklaces, too, but among the stealth intel my trip to Mexico last week provided, guess what? I do. We can trick ourselves into thinking necklaces look great layered over turtlenecks and thick sweaters and collarbone-cloaking blouses but the fact of the matter remains: there is nothing quite as lovely as a gem propped up against human skin. (Other than daffodils and homemade pancakes and stuff like that).
In light of this revelation and the assumption that though spring has seemingly taken a detour, it is on it’s way, behold a selection of hip jewelry. What’s more? Nothing clocks in at over $80. Repellers on a budget, unite!
From top left and ascending vertically: that first piece is, yes, a white belt but I have this idea about wearing white belts as chokers this season. Trust me on this one (and also know, there is a tutorial on it’s way.)
A gold cuff, followed by a selection of brass rings to adorn every single finger on your entire body, even toes if you are feeling adventurous. (Do also send photos if this means you.) Also, a spiked gold choker because this year’s Met Costume Institute Gala theme is punk.
Colorful tribal necklace equipped with mini coins et al, Daffy Duck’s hot chick of a girlfriend on a gold chain, and a combination of colored stones, spikes, and a cascading amulet in the figure at bottom.
Per the last row of hip thrills: eyeball studs and a little baby bracelet (because, you know, I’m watching your every move and such), an ear cuff adorned by leafs, mismatched chandelier earrings ($30) to confuse your dad or whomever and a beaded bracelet to wear with your eyeball because beads are cool especially when of the anal variety.
