trying my hand…
came across this image that i found funny, and decided to spoof it.
the inspiration - courtesy of litter.
Man I’m really enjoying the pieces by Litter. That body garter (#2) is hawt. Are you a fan of the armor offerings (http://armorjewelry.com/)?
i’d actually never heard of armor until you posted the link – just checked it out. i can’t say i’m a fan of either line; i’m nowhere near lacking in the jewelery department either, but i personally feel like boutique-sold jewelery (i.e. expensive jewelery) should be easy to wear. as an art enthusiast, i greatly admire their creativity, but as an aspiring businesswoman and consumer, i think almost every piece is almost too avant garde, too runway and not ready-to-wear. rings connected by long chains, ear lobe cuffs connected to studs by long chains, garter chains, headband chains…i can barely get a plain headband to stay put, let alone one made out of a web of chains. i did score an extremely long vintage rhinestone necklace, and easily emulated two or three of the looks just by manipulation. finally, i don’t see myself wearing copper-toned chain garters into my 40’s and 50’s… but i’ll still be wearing my david yurman albion ring, and my piaget watch. it’s only as true as my opinion, but i feel like classic jewelry is much more worth the price. your take?
They say the style that you maintain throughout your life is the style that you had during the year of your highest education. And I find myself in a shift between my youthful, artful attire and a more mature, sartorial dress.
So I think the same appeals to my take on my attraction toward a feminine look that dips into the realm of avant garde girl and classical beauty; or chic hipster and fashion couture.
Anyhow, I agree with classic pieces however I do love the girl that can pull off anything. Also, Cleopatra rocked way bigger headwear than Litter, or native american tribesman for that matter.
is sartorial dress always “mature”? we see older men in slim fit, flat front slack suits, and call it a “young” look, or when a younger man tops off his jeans and white button-down with a vintage tweed suit jacket we call him sartorial. which is what and what is which? who knows. hopefully, you keep your “youthful, artful attire” AND your “mature, sartorial dress”, and perhaps evolve it into a “artsy sartorial” that those who know you will coin as “classic jimmy”.
as a woman, and one with serious control and neat-freak issues, i don’t know if i believe if there really is a person who can pull everything off. sure, models (and some beautiful people i’m lucky to know) can wear anything, but once you take into account personality, i’d wager some things just don’t quite fit. for instance, could you see geena in polos and pressed khakis, or an 80’s power suit, or in teetering ysl tribs? i know i couldn’t – those are my clothes! on the flip side, if i wore paisley, i’d look like a secretary – but geena can don prints in the bohemian way they were meant to be worn. she’s got circle skirts, worn-in kicks, and pastel rompers by the throat. me in a peasant top? it’s laughable – and a little bit scary. sure, we all have wide range in what we can pull off, but it’s never absolute. it’s so much about personality – i envy geena for how she always looks effortlessly chic; though i don’t dislike how my clothes always look curated.
i totally understand what you mean about being attracted to different people with different “looks” – i think that’s the price we pay for being so worldly, jimmy (our bosom friend geena suffers the same fate). we know about so much, so we notice and appreciate people who “own their looks”, down to every detail, no matter if we would like the pieces of their outfit deconstructed. to put it simply, the ugly truth is: we know what good is, we know what we like, and we are picky. we’re snobs. 🙂
