I'm out of control.
Accessory-wise, that is.
I mean- in lots of others wises too, but we'll save those convos for another day (read: never).
What I really wanted to talk about today is the strategy behind the jewelry/accessories that I wear.
The specific aspect of it that I wanted to address was the fact that there is no aspect to it at all.
In fact, there is no strategy to begin with.
Glad we're getting somewhere.
Fer realz, though - what I find interesting about this whole social media-derived phenomenon is that there are so many "tutorials" and buzzwords and hashtags nowadays centered on how to compile your jewelry in an adequate fashion.
#wristgame #armparty #ringstack etc etc etc etc
But in truth, I put nearly zero thought into what I group together on any given limb at any given time.
|blazer: Helmut Lang via iona, shirt: my sister's (similar), jeans: Gap, accoutrements: lots'oplaces- including Left of Right Jewelry & Goodwill.|
But that's my M.O.
You do yours.
Even if your "party" is instead a solo pink-dress-clad prom appearance by a 16-year-old w/ gumption.
Go for it.
And to prove that we're all just idiots and like to make things up, I found a couple of online "layering rules" and then found a couple of opposite "layering rules" by equally qualified individuals:
Mix High-Contrast Styles vs "Two of the necklaces should be similar in either texture, color, or shape."
Layer Delicate Pieces vs "put together chunky beads, silver and gold chains, leather strings, lace and ribbon strands."
But we all seem to agree on mixing metals.
I almost committed a fashion faux-pas there. And you know how I am with those.
