While it may be surprising to see Nicole Richie featured in a blog written by someone (i.e. me) that generally focuses on music and my Brooklyn scene, Nicole Richie is a demi-rockstar by law. She’s like a quarter rockstar. I would never really consider either of the Madden brothers to be a full fledged rock star; generally if you dated Hilary Duff or you were a part of my CD collection circa 1999, I believe you are immediately exempt from being a genuine rock star.
But I digress… Nicole Richie is on the fringe of the music world and currently debuting her accessories line at Kitson Boutique in Los Angeles—ergo, she is relevant to me and I am relevant to this blog.
Named after Richie and Madden’s daughter, House of Harlow 1960 features genuine leather and gold plated bangles at surprisingly affordable prices (unlike certain other high-end lines designed by celebrities such as LiLo’s line of leggings and LC’s collection of jersey dresses). Also, the bangles would look bangin’ (bangin’ bangles, see what I did there…) stacked with any other bangles in Richie’s collection or otherwise. The collection, however, is relatively small and not very diverse but that shouldn’t discount Richie’s talent as an emerging designer. Please, don’t bash that statement on MySpace, “the new girls’ bathroom stall.”
