A recent appreciation for all lip adorned accoutrements, combined with the onset of Coachella , had me probing into other possible unique body accessories such as those that exist in nature. Recent harsh wintry-weather has plugged Mother Nature as the devil, but if there was ever a time for forgiveness, this is it. The temps will rise, the sun will shine, and soon all mid-April complaints will be washed away. So why not celebrate with Earth’s beautiful bounty?
The initial thought was that wearing feathers in our hair, or butterflies on our scalps would be a wash out. Not only for hard-core nature enthusiasts, the playing field has been leveled. There are flowers budding around us, hummingbirds knocking on our trees, and the smell of
Manure fresh-cut grass just outside your window. Why can’t we wear our lips and hearts, ironic f*ck off bracelets, show off our swag, and show our love for Mother Nature? The jewelry and adornment of today isn’t your grandma’s strand of pearls. It’s in the details of the mélange below that might spark your fancy. See butterflies, ferns, and other leaf-like substances all for under $50.00!
Let’s acknowledge spring’s fresh beginnings.
