I was walking through the mall the other day and I saw this advertising banner in a costume jewelry store.
I can only concur. A girl can never have too much bling!
I strongly suspect that many transwomen and cis-gender women feel exactly the same about this. But I am sure there are some who do not. I wonder why that is. Personally I love jewelry. I think it is fun to buy, fun to wear and that it can really bring an outfit together. I suppose some women are less fussed by their appearance. (Edit: What I am trying to say but have clearly not managed to do so, is that some women prefer a less ‘fussy’ look. That is tom say a ‘simpler’ or ‘cleaner’ look. Jewelry is a ‘complication’ that some women I suspect could do without as it can and does, catch in your hair, on your clothes etc. I am not suggesting that someone who does not wear jewelry is taking less care of themselves or cares less about how they look, just that they prefer a different look. I can see how my original expression was ambiguous at best and down right wrong at worst. I apologise for the poor expression.)
I like to buy costume jewelry as it is cheerfully cheap and I feel I can experiment with different styles and looks (chunky vs elegant etc). Also as I get to wear it relatively infrequently I would feel bad spending a lot of cash on it. Also I feel that if it were to get stolen or lost, it would be less of a problem. There are of course others who would prefer a smaller variety of high quality pieces.
What do you think? Please let me know in the comments below.
