Sniff Sniff I'm Sniffing A Trend
Beejoowelled. Bejewelled.Bijoux-jewelled. Jewels. Jewelry. Bling-Bling. The bigger, the tackier. The tackier, the better.
I remember when I was about 6, my grandma told me that if you put small rocks in water and let them stay for a night on a full moon, the next day they will transform into shiny jewels. And it did. I got up and discovered a few "diamonds" and already started thinking about how I'll start my business, cover all my clothes with those diamonds, become rich and make money for us because at that time, it was a hard period money- wise for my parents but you don't want to know the rest.
Of course, the diamonds were fake plastic ones, but I didn't discover it until...I don't know. when grandma flew back to Serbia? My grandma is the best ever. She taught me to read Cyrillic alphabet when I was young, she told me tales every night and every day and made me believe in all sort of silly Little girl's things such as fairies and the said diamonds. I love my grandma.
So, back to the point. Jewels were literally everywhere. Viktor and Rolf, Marc Jacobs, Miu Miu (last summer) and a more toned-down way at Chloé. But of course, who got the trend first? Eliza, fo sho! And if Our shiny Princess feels it, then it's going to be big, trust me ( http://insanityandstyle.blogspot.com/ ).
Remember, S/S 06, the Miu Miu bejewelled flats? Now it's Marc Jacobs' take on shiny with blingy flapper-style headbands, shoes, and necklaces. At Viktor and Rolf jewels where everywhere and most surprisingly...even on leggings!!
If you have to remember one thing for next summer : Enjoy and let the real Barbie Princess you are re surge on the surface!
