How to wear…dramatic jewelry

Allow me to reiterate: I think “how to wear” columns are dumb.

HA! I said it. It’s true. They are dumb.  But, as I confessed to my sister the other day: 80% of my daily broodings revolve around how I think I could have done something better than someone else did it (she promised to diagnose me at a later date)… and so I sometimes have to jump into the fray of dumbness just so I can do a better dumb.

Today we have…how to wear DRAMATIC JEWELRY*! And by dramatic, I mostly mean ridiculous. Who else is going to show you how to style a resin lobster necklace, right? Isn’t that why you came here today?

*Please note – some of these selections are more “art” than “wearable accessories” as they are one of a kind, gallery pieces

How to wear a tee shirt

Now I imagine most people reading this blog are of an age where they can dress themselves and their wardrobe choices are no longer monitored closely or chosen for them.  You’re all probably folks who know what you like and have a snazzy sense of style and you don’t need someone – especially someone whose idea of formal attire is a polyester turtleneck with psychedelic mushrooms dancing all over it – giving you fashion advice. Fair enough.

So don’t consider this a “how to wear” column.  Even though that’s what I titled it.  I don’t mean to be confusing!  I’m simply sharing a few really cool tee shirts here and how I might style them, for folks like me, whose wardrobe is somehow 140% tee shirts and who can appreciate a fantastic, casually cut cotton top with killer graphics on it.

Please note that not everything here is budget friendly.  Actually, there is not a single item listed that is budget friendly…except maybe the tee shirts themselves.  I will not apologize for my exquisitely expensive tastes! Clicking on each ensemble will take you to a polyvore page with a listing of each of the items featured.  And of course there is a perfume paired with each!  I mean why bother even getting dressed, otherwise.
