This is certainly not a style for just everyone, but I know a couple of women who wear this very urban, industrial style, and who carry it off with great panache! (Imagine a woman with silver grey hair, cut in a very short, angular style. Chiseled cheekbones, a slash of red lipstick...) One of the things that we have to remember about a unique personal style is that it is, by definition, not for everybody. Realistically, it shouldn't be for ANYBODY other than you. It's hard to chart your own path, style-wise, but feeling quintessentially like yourself can be an amazing sensation...
I was fascinated, but not really surprised, when I was able to find all of the accessories I needed for this post from just one website: Boticca. Some of their designers have a clearly defined aesthetic, and thus they create the products that reflect that choice. When I was looking for these accessories, and found that my objective was something that resonated with their vision, my search was over. Boticca carries some beautiful items...
