how to be parisian wherever you are
The Parisienne wears very little jewelry.
The Inseperable: a fine chain, a simple ring, a family heirloom. It is as discreet as possible, and should subtly suit you. It's your trade mark.
The Statement Piece: a chunky gold bracelet or a a gemstone necklace, these statement pieces are for brightening up a casual daytime outfit or for wearing on the beach with a tan.
The Theory of Contrasts: the smarter the outfit the less jewelry you need.
"The Jewels," by Baudelaire: "My well-beloved was stripped. Knowing my whim, / She wore her tinkling gems, but naught besides." Take a leaf out of his book and keep your jewelry on in bed. Whether you're going to sleep or making love. It will give you sweet dreams.
The Authentic Fake: don't shy away from costume jewelry. Wear your bargains with pride. The Parisienne wears the Authentic Fake on a night out because she doesn't care if it's stolen on the Métro. But she wouldn't dream of wearing anything "fake authentic." Knockoff luxury pieces are heresy.
Your watch: it is also considered a piece of jewelry. That doesn't mean that it was to cost a fortune, only that it should be pretty, classic, or quirky. Your watch completes an outfit, either by perking it up or by adding contrast.
The Backstory: you don't need to own a lot of jewelry, but each piece-whether a memento from your family or your travels-should tell a story. Their value lies not in their price but in their sentiment.
This past week was a bit tough, tougher than usual. I've
been studying for some major exams, prepping for job
interviews at school & I also found out that one of my
favorite professors passed. Some of the students say it
was a suicide, others that it was an accident. I don't
exactly know what happened but I choose to believe
Professor Anderson didn't intentionally take his life. He
was nothing but a kind & generous man who invested all
of his efforts on bettering his students. I remember having
lunch with him at the Union once, and every minute
somebody would come up to greet him & to ask when
they would see him on the courts again. He loved playing
basketball at the Rec & loved spreading his philosophical
wisdom about life. Taking his Critical Thinking-Philosophy
course my freshman year opened my eyes to the
importance of rational thinking. Early in his course I
mentioned my dreams of becoming a lawyer & ever since
then he'd be especially hard on me to guarantee I'd think
outside the box like one. Professor Anderson was loved by
all & will be greatly missed. Thank you Professor for
inspiring me, guiding me, & believing in me.
