Why Did You Wear That: Holy Moly!

fall trend 2012 cross jewelry

I don’t know what you did this past weekend (and it’s really none of my business), but maybe you’re feeling the need for a little repentance.  Fortunately for you, one of fall’s big jewelry trends may help ward off any unwelcome evil.  That’s right, the return of the rosary (or the cross) was shown on many of the runways. Paired perfectly with this fall’s luxurious leathers, velvets, crimsons, and blacks, the addition of this simplistic accessory is the perfect companion for a truly rocker ready look.  Opt for a long singular pendant, layer on in different lengths, or wrap around your wrists.  I’m not saying it’s going to replace praying in a pew, but it certainly can’t hurt.

Alright, so the man has warranted more than just a drink at the Standard before you move on and meet up with your friends (in hopes of meeting someone better).  Lucky dog!  Your relationship is probably past a peck on the lips, but perhaps nothing too intimate has occurred…yet.  So, he should be aware that you are worthy of far more than the run of the mill red and mundane roses or -gasp- carnations.  There is a very fine line between tasteful and trite.  Let’s help him out in the gift giving department… I mean, he was doing so well…
