Empress Dior

Mar 1, 2010

i've mentioned before that i'm not huge on jewelry and accessories but lately i've been in an inexplicable frenzy acquiring new pieces. see i don't like to have to change out and coordinate accessories everyday. my fashion formula revolves around laziness and comfort and the least amount of thought required to put an outfit together. i like to have a set that i wear every single day and become my constant staples.

spotted this crazy ring at Dior and i must admit, it was not love at first sight. it was peaked curiosity at first sight, but love...not just yet. it took some trying on and walking around (comical i know, for a ring) and just plain marveling at its size. there are times when you see something and you're certain you're drawn to it, but then there's a fine line it teeters on between being monstrous or genius. i inevitably was convinced of the latter.



it kept reminding me of these ancient Chinese hats that emperors and court people wore.
every time i look down at my hand i think of that and it makes me smile. isn't that what fashion is supposed to be afterall? finding pleasure in these treasures we find?

Gorgeous ring! I'm happy to hear I'm not the only person that shops like that. And hey, if you get in a battle you have a stylish shield.

you are so right about that fine line between monstrosity and genius..almost all the fashionz i own hover around the line, mostly more towards the monstrous in my case..
