only in L.A.

With a sleeping baby in my lap, I made the mistake of turning on the t.v. The local news was starting. (you will have no problem figuring out which network) I hate the news. Usually I turn it off, but I am always amused by the female anchor. Today she is perched up on her chair, hair piled high, pound of make up and mini dress in place. (shockingly, it wasn't cleavage baring today) She has on more jewelry than me and it is clinking and clanging all over the place. She reports on the car bomb in Pakistan by saying "at least 90 people in the busy marketplace were blown to bits". A woman in her late 40s with a journalism degree uses the words "blown to bits" to describe the deaths of human beings. On the news! well... she is dressed like Paris Hilton. eww.

the charming 80s...

This custom order for Joanna reminds me of a grown up version of those awesome plastic chain link necklaces with the clip on plastic charms that i was obsessed with as a kid in the 80s. My version is sterling silver with natural stones, precious metals, and vintage charms. This is a bracelet which can also be worn as a necklace when attached to the included sterling silver chain. Email for info on creating your own.
