I've never lived by the rule that just because something is merchandised in a particular category that that is what it will and always will be.
Finding other ways to wear pieces, jewelry and clothing alike, has been a way for me express individuality and, at the end of the day - warrant the spend. You've heard of cost per wear? If you have not: It's when you take the price of something ... factor in the amount of times you'll wear in a year, the length of time you plan on owning the piece, and whatever other things will help you not have buyers remorse and voila! You've now justified the splurge! I DIGRESS. This just made that CPW idea a lot more interesting (and ahem justifiable).
I NOW GIVE YOU: A collage of ways I've been wearing my pieces. No limbs left behind.
