Today I would like to debut a hair style that won varying awards yesterday: the “Did you do something different to your hair?” award; the “This makes you look like you are 15 again” award; and the “Wow, hair looks fantasitc today” award. Not quite sure what to make of these “awards” except that it certainly brought on the comments. Basically, this is what my hair looks like 6 months post hair cut and parted down the middle. But enough of hair, this isn’t a beauty blog!, let’s get to the outfit. Lots of fun 2nd hand pieces here from the top to the jeans to the…drum roll please…Barry Kieselstein-Cord alligator cuff. This piece came into Baggio Consignment several months ago and it was love at first site. The detail is amazing and it perfectly combines classic with edgy. I left the store that day, thinking about the piece. I finally go to the place in my head where I knew I wanted to comit (it didn’t come cheap) and that it would be a worthy investment (just look his stuff up on eBay and know that’s not even close to the retail price). His work is the work of legends and truly defines fashion/jewelry design as art; people collect his items. Long story short, the item was gone by the time I decided to buy it but as fortune would have, it came back and it’s mine. I am in love with this piece and besides, it makes a nice addition to my small “adult” jewelry collection (i.e. pieces made from real silver, gold, etc. ya know… the stuff your grandparents and parents have).
