I want to start off today by saying that I feel we really had a great little discussion on the last post! Everyone had some great feedback/input, and I'm certainly biased, but I feel fortunate to have such intelligent and awesome readers. So, you know, thanks for always being the best. Also, I want to reiterate that I certainly have no problem with wearing whatever-the-heck-ya-fancy, as long as it comes from a place of considered aesthetic appreciation and not from a place of condescending exoticism -- from where I know most people don't come, but sometimes fashion media puts these really offensive monikers in our heads and it becomes second-nature to use them. Y'all know I love my turbans and kimonos and beaded jewelry and daishikis and block-inspired prints and handloom-inspired wovens and all of that jazz. I actually think that I was just born with something bizarre in my brain that makes me want to wear anything that I find particularly attractive. "That looks cool...I should probably put it on myself somehow."
So, with that little recap and mushy lovefest thing taken care of, I want to move on to talk about this AMAZING Unearthen necklace, the gifting of which was coordinated by the always-wonderful Britney, who works at the Unearthen design studio when she isn't hawking her gorgeous vintage wears on eBay. This necklace is amazing -- the stone reflects a million different brilliant colors and is a little bit of psychedelic heaven. In case y'all didn't know, Unearthen was the OG on that whole bullet-case-with-crystal necklace thing. Now, they have expanded to do some absolutely stunning and very unique things, including phenomenal wrapping and multi-finger rings, as well as beautiful watches.
Take a look at some of my favorite shots from their newest lookbook, hand-modeled by none other than Ms. Nicki!
