Regina George’s feelings about the word “fetch” are similar to how I feel about wearable technology — stop trying to make it happen (sorry, Gretchen). How connected do we really need to be at all times? Is it necessary to have a piece of jewelry to tell us when someone liked our Instagram or glasses that take a picture for you instead of you reaching ALL the way into your bag, taking out your phone and just doing it yourself? Apparently, we do.
I can’t even keep track of all the 90s revivals coming back — between overalls, crop tops, and fugly shoes you’d think it’s 1998 up in here. But thankfully designers have refined these trends (not so much the fugly shoes though) and hopefully we won’t look back on 2014 ten years from now in disgust. However, there’s one 90s trend resurfacing you can rock in any decade without looking outdated — that, my friends, is the choker necklace.
I’ve been doing the whole dainty jewels thing for a while now. Gold or rose gold, white or black diamonds and that’s pretty much been the extent of it. I love the look, don’t get me wrong, but I’ve bee wanting to try something a little different in the accessories department. Feeling quite inspired by Dannijo, I thought we should chat about white jewelry.
Remember that chat we had about stacking jewelry a few days ago? Well we’re going to revisit that but with a focus on one particular designer who doesn’t necessarily need stacking to make her creations look good (but a fist full of Delfina Delettrez never hurt anyone…unless you decided to throw a punch with that fist — those jewels could probably do some damage).
No longer do we just put on one necklace, a bracelet and a ring on our ring finger. I mean, what fun is that? It kind of all started with the “arm party” a few years back then moved onto how many rings can we fit onto each hand and now we’re pretty much at the point where it’s completely normal to wear a boutique’s worth of jewels in just one look (otherwise known as stacks on stacks and if you’re really ambitious #stacksonstacksonstacks).
