“You can wake up now, the universe has ended.”
Rebel Without a Cause (1955)
An oversized jacket like this makes me feel very rebellious, very carefree, very tough – a James Dean kind of tough. Meaning not really tough at all, just a kid who’e been in trouble elsewhere. A real yo-yo, you’d bet. And I love you too.
It felt only appropriate to juxtaposition some rather angelic looking stud earrings by Aurum by Gudbjorg that I found on JewelStreet.com, a virtual treasure chest where you can get crazy unique pieces that you will simply feel compelled to purchase.
The beauty of this particular jewellery brand is that it can add either sanctity or ravenesque darkness to a look, depending on the level of oxidisation of the silver. In my case it added an extra dimension to this otherwise purely rebellious look. A bit of Vivien Leigh to this James Dean.
