Loose the pearls and let your grandma know that your not quite ready to transition into old woman gold which is mostly seen on cruise ships and in Florida around this time of year. Although, a cruise sounds perfect right now especially on someone else’s budget. That reminds me, I need to call my Grandma.
Either way, what every Nooner needs to have on her jewelry stand is some fine crafted bracelet weaponry. Like everything we do, it’s another reason to add to the list to tell the world that we are cooler than them. Our personality could do just that, but sometimes people need reminders. Plus, when we are walking home at night it’s an additional factor to keep away the weirdo’s or the ass that is trying to steal your taxi. Just show him your bracelet weaponry and he will for sure back the f away from the yellow car. It’s mine bitch! Don’t mess with me after three vodka tonics and a couple of shots. But mostly when it’s cold out, a bitch gets feisty.
When it comes to bracelet weaponry every editor and fashion girl alike loves Eddie Borgo. For good reason too, he does it best. Another CFDA Fashion Fund nominee, Pamela Love also makes me want to spend my shoe money on jewelry, which is hard feat to do.
If your rent takes up more than your paycheck then it actually should, check out the Nooner approved options below.
Somewhere a long the lines this morning, you have hit the snooze button three times without even noticing it. By the forth time you finally realized that your alarm wasn’t a drill you actually needed to wake the f up. You often don’t have the comfort of having most mornings start the same, to some it may be a luxury to you its preferred. You run around your apartment getting your things together while brushing you teeth. Jewelry is on, a dab of perfume and over to your closet to decide what jacket to wear. Every Nooner knows the brilliance of having a wide selection of coats and jackets in their repertoire but there is a certain one that holds dear to your heart. It’s the homeless man jacket that you spotted before and definitely after the Fall 2011 Altuzarra show and the many that came after including Elizabeth and James this Fall 2012 New York Fashion Week.
The jacket is not fitted, unlike other fashionable jackets actually warm and kind of similar to the jacket the homeless man wears on the corner with the sign “need money for weed”. The way you look some mornings after you have gone out, you do bare some similarities to this man more than you actually should but make no mistake the homeless man jacket is a Nooner essential. It should have an oversized hood and a fur or fux fur trim. Its easy to throw on overtop of the BAB or the IDGAF Brunch Sweater because its easily transferable to a lot of outfits unlike most jackets. It’s casual and also serves a downtown air of rebellion, which is a look and feel we always strive for.
Every great woman in the world has had her name or initial hanging from her delicate neck. Such greats as Carrie Bradshaw with her gold platted “Carrie” and Blair Waldorf from Gossip Girl with her diamond “B”(no I am not kidding when I call them great). Why you may ask? Because they’re the shit and they want the whole world to know, that is if you couldn’t already tell by their wardrobe.
If there is one piece of jewelry to grab with your metro card before running out, it’s the “crown jewel”. No other piece is filled with more power or prestige than the one that represents your name and being.
This is the signature jewelry piece for every Nooner because it does everything we don’t feel like doing, it tells the world who you are. Everyone already secretly knows your name anyway but the diamond Initial reinforces your superior attitude.
And just remember, I’m sure he will always remember your name, but just incase you met him and you were both fucked up, this necklace helps him remember what name to scream.
