Here’s a word I’m trying to drop from my blog posts — perfect. As in, this dress would be perfect for a barbeque or these shoes would be perfect for work. There are sooooo many options for what to wear and it all really comes down to what you want to wear, your mood that day, if you are PMSing and feel two sizes bigger, and how far you’re going to be walking. I’m chucking the notion of perfect anything from my blog. Let’s be imperfect, off-beat, quirky, mussed and downright askew.
Maybe it’s a backlash to all the statement pieces of jewelry that are popular right now, but I’m putting the spotlight on studs. Such a crazy rabble-rouser, aren’t I? A pop of color that doesn’t weigh down your ear. A simple spark of light that brings attention to your face. An inky black speck for your bad-girl moods. A powerful statement for a big-deal meeting. An unfussy choice for casual days. And…it might be a good Mother’s Day present too.

Does anyone else remember this classic clip from the movie Grease? How fun was that scene?!
If you caught my geeky reference from this scene in the title of today’s post, 10 points for you! Nothing like a bit of ’80s pop culture to keep us alive and kicking (ha, another geeky 80’s song reference). OK, somebody stop me now.
