In high school I had this goth chick friend whose totally chill nature was belied by her fierce aesthetic. She also used to die her naturally white blond totally gorgeous hair a particularly dingy shade of black. I am so all for self expression, but I’ll forever be perplexed by the tarnishing of natural beauty in favor of rebellion, some trend or a misguided love affair with Hot Topic.
I feel similarly about a lot of jewelry as of late. A little punk is awesome, but I can’t wrap my head around nor will I let my neck be draped in something like a necklace made of gold dipped human teeth or a random piece of animal bone. Instead, I’ll choose to get a little dark with chiffon, beading and gold accents that call Lanvin, the ’20s and perhaps an ancient Pharaoh to mind.
