chain gang



{all Bliss Lau}

The above photos are a product of today’s procrastination at the library. 

I could think of a-million-and-five things I would rather do right now than contemplate the theories of Freud for this paper, and this is one example. I have admired chain body jewelry present on various blogs for a while, and always kind of wanted my own. I suppose this was just the perfect opportunity to go hunting through the Internet for some possibilities. I stumbled upon jewelry designer Bliss Lau and her incredible range of chain vests, dresses and more! The layering possibilities are almost mind-boggling and could be worn for everyday or posh events. My brain is already spinning with outfits I could put these over (or under ahhh!!). I think I am in love with how these pieces are more like articles of clothing rather than just an accessory. Luckily, there are affordable alternatives (Lau’s beauties can cost a girl $200 +) and I am currently debating whether or not I should add the ASOS shoulder chain to my shopping cart. Perhaps I should create a list of tops it would go with…once I veer off track its so hard to start again. Plus this is just way more fun ;)

  10. They're cool and different, but you'd have to wear your hair up, or risk major pain!
