I think the name I’ll dub this latest necklace is The Jungle. I will post pictures of the outfit I made with it hopefully, but I’ll give you a precursor: I’m planning on wearing The Jungle Necklace with my graphic painterly printed green/brown/goldish tunic, black tights, black suede platforms, sparkly earrings, laramar ring, Michael Kors chunky gold watch, and my new fur gilet. [ It was apparently around $900 at a boutique, but the woman wanted to get rid of it so badly that the consignment shop bought it from her for… $25. !!! STEAL!!! It was SO worth my dad’s money talk later that night… “COLLEGE BOOKS” etc etc. sigh. .. 🙂 ] I also have worn the gilet with a Free People Wool-Tweed sweatercoat, leggings and lace knee socks with my cognac riding boots. Yum.
I think my style is morphing (temporarily? FOREVER?!?!?!) from exceedingly feminine to … bohemian. Who would have guessed?! It is probably partly influenced by the weather… it’s hard to look girly with 16 layers on. I prefer to stay warm in my leggings layered under my boyfriend bleached/ripped jeans and two chunky clashing sweaters… And a scarf.
Okay, so look for a post soon about “irony” in fashion!!! I’ve been reading the book by Amanda Brooks called “I ❤ Your Style,” and she talks about ironic fashion a lot. Examples are Chanel and Prada. I’ll elaborate later… for now I am going to work on my resume for Anthropologie, especially the cover letter I’m crafting for it…! 🙂 Wow, it sounds like I’m trying to score a job in the upper ranks… but like I said, I’d be happy as can be polishing the floors there. I would live there, really. The atmosphere instantly turns my somber winter mood into an inspired (and cozy) one!
