Today is a review of some of the lovely new jewelry I received for Christmas, all revolving around a simple theme (Can you see it?
I'm concerned if you can't) - cameos. Cameos have always been a favorite of mine, despite their definite girliness - something I generally try to avoid, but made up by my love for their vintage patina and the feeling of history they all seem to have. Not sure of the origins of the first two, presents from my grandma and mom, respectively. The earrings (pictured from when I wore them today along with my favorite polka dot blouse) are an old pair of my grandma's I found while ruffling through her boxes of jewelry awhile ago, but to my dismay they were clip-ons. Not anymore! My mom took them in to a jeweler near our house, had them re-tool the earrings as posts, and voila. I really love them, and the little jewel detail sets them apart from all of the more basic cameos I own.
Went through public transportation hell - getting out of the Georgetown neighborhood on the weekends can be a bit difficult, to put it nicely - today to make it to Chinatown for lunch with Colleen today at our favorite Italian restaurant (yes, we go to Chinatown for pasta sometimes) and spent two hours catching up and laughing over copious amounts of carbs, well worth putting off the homework. Except for some reason I don't seem to have any homework? Document this for when I come crying to you about my 19 credit hours later this semester. Really all I have to say.
