Honestly, when I don’t have multiple accessories on, I feel underdressed. Call me juvenile but I’m just being honest. I could recall this high school classmate of mine who told me that if she so much as forgot to put earrings on when she’d leave the house, she’d feel buck-naked… and now, I finally understand her.
Before you lambast me for being so trivial, let me assure you that it’s nothing personal. I reserve judgment for those who make do with hardly any hardware. It’s a “me” thing–as in, it’s a rule that I only apply to me.
I like to accessorize, sue me. I’m sure a handful of fashion bloggers and feisty fashionistas will tell you the same thing. Of course, I’m not really one for edgy pieces but I like them when they’re attention-grabbing and pretty. My staple outfit combo without fail consists of something around the neck coupled with a little something around the wrists (if I feel hardcore enough, I’ll have something around the fingers as well).
If there’s anyone to blame for this compulsion, it would be Lauren Conrad and her book on style. I’ve devoured the chapter on how to layer necklaces and I’ve been experimental with jewelry since.
