Mira’s Closet: 11/24/14: Behind the Baubles

MClosetMira’s no fashionista, but she definitely has her own sense of style…
And now here’s an update on just that.

First an observation: I’ve been thinking lately about jewelry and baubles. I no longer think these are pretty useless items that exist solely to make pretty women look prettier; they also make not-so-pretty women look prettier. I kid, but seriously there is so much more to small, pretty, shiny accessories than meets the eye…Like my comic/nerd reference there? 😉

Anyway, here’s what I’ve concluded. These accessories and baubles don’t always have to be expensive and pure, but they can at best be significant. When a man wears and old watch that’s in good condition, it usually means that someone he cares about gave it to him. When a man break out his fraternity pin to wear on his lapel or on his tie and get choked up in the process, you know it’s not all about how it looks.

Then there are the more obvious female examples. A girl wears the earing she inherited from her mother, a woman pins a bright red and gaudy broach to her lapel because it represents a cause that means more than just a lot her. A grandmother wears a sparkling charm bracelet where each charm signifies one of her children and grandchildren. Not that I think there is anything wrong with wearing jewelry for the heck of it and wanting it to be pretty and stylish, but it’s nice knowing that sometimes there more to it than that.

Now here are some style tips/clips from
