Fashion through Literature Week and Bejewelled Things


I officially declare it Fashion through Literature Week at The Fashion-y Blog.

Yes, reading is fashionable, people! For the entire week, most, (if not all) of my posts will be inspired by books I've read. My fashion choices have often been inspired by my reading material, so now I'll share that joy with you. My first post on the subject starts now.

----------------------------------------------------

One of my favorite books as a kid was Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine. There's a quote from that book that has stuck in my mind:

"Should you spy a carriage that surpasses all others, peer inside. You'll
find me within, smiling at my jewels and laughing at the world."

This quote seems like a perfect way to describe my recent infatuation with jewels and rhinestones, the bigger and less tasteful, the better. The reason that the quote stayed with me is because it sounded so cold and horrible (at least within the context of the book), but I suddenly have a new appreciation for it. You see, piling on the bling makes me feel giddy and fabulous. I tend to laugh joyfully at the queen-like, sparkling things that I am wearing. I see no reason why not to, as long as the price is right.

Here are my bejweled picks:

Also, Fashionista has a great DIY article on how to make those dazzling Marc Jacobs headbands that we've all been coveting.

Oh, to be young and encrusted with rhinestones!
