But it also makes me long to dance on the rooftop of Empire Records with Ethan Embry and Rory Cochran at dawn circa 1995. Oddly enough, the song also invokes a certain nostalgic desire to wear a short, plaid, and pleated skirt paired with Doc Martens. And then I’m reminded that my legs aren’t half the length of Liv Tyler’s and my reverie is broken.
Switching over to “La Meme Histoire” by Feist, I’m reminded that I do not have in possession my Fashion Forum item of the week. It is an item I would love to have in my possession, but I’m just a tad bit reluctant to admit where said item first caught my eye.
I did, previously, admonish readers to avoid over accessorizing themselves à la Carrie Bradshaw. Still, every now and then, Patricia Field, stylist for the SATC series, hit the mark spot on. My absolute favorite collection of ensembles ever featured on all six seasons premiered on the final two episodes which were set in Paris. Field effortlessly channeled a tribute to Parisien mode without being too literal and ingeniously blended it with an old Hollywood, Roman Holiday-esque look. Impeccably gorgeous and youthful while also remaining age appropriate.
It goes without saying that I could easily covet every article of clothing featured on the two episodes, but one item in particular lingers in the recesses of my mind. I cannot shake the need to acquire a necklace either identical or similar to the one with which Petrovsky gifts Carrie.
So simple and elegant. Ageless. Timeless. Goes with anything and everything. I need to have this.
Imagine my disheartened dismay upon discovering that the original design by Fred Leighton is valued at $55K. Hmmm….so exactly how lucrative could your landscape designs potentially become, B? Or, let me reword that, how lucrative can we make them be?
Alas, I don’t need a $55K Fred Leighton creation. Unless an affluent benefactor takes pity on me. Actually many jewelry designers on Etsy have worked to simulate Leighton’s design, and I’m seriously considering purchasing one for $25.
Regardless, be it the $55,000 piece or the $25 replica, I am seriously jonesing for this necklace as my weekend and every single day that follows item.
So, beloved readers of my inanity, what’s your weekend poison?
