I really connected with Stacie's post about bling versus and more natural look.... something that is a part of you... She didn't exactly use those words, but it made me think about my own taste in jewelry. As a teen, I thought I was pretty cool.... perhaps, a little too much so due to teenage brain syndrome....
I didn't wear much jewelry, but was sure to adorn myself with ripped or patched jeans, oh yeah.... memory.... Jethro Tull necklace.... , whatever shoes were the latest style.... usually big platform shoes (never sneakers) that now look to me like something Herman Munster (maybe some of you know who Herman is) might wear, and whatever casual, yet hip shirt to match the rest of the wardrobe. As I aged, I still kept my "in style - my style" personality and most of my taste in clothes. If I felt comfortable wearing my jeans to work every day (which is frowned upon), I would. Another thing with age is that if you are smart, you will realize that at 51 you really should NOT wear what you did at 15. I've tried to remain true to myself (a rare dress and panty hose) with age appropriate style at the same time.
One thing that works well with my style is cuffs. I searched on Etsy to find art cuffs that I would buy today ..... They are probably not fashion friends with my shiny Jethro Tull necklace (nor should they be), but I think they are pretty cool......
