I'm Bringing Sexy Back

OK, so I'm not really bringing sexy back, but there are a few items that I would like to bring back from the fashion vault of "Oh. No. She. Didn't." (head movements and all). I think there are some truly quality pieces that have gone down the wrong path in fashion past, and your resident frum fashionista is here to bring them back to you.

Every time I tell you I am bringing sexy back, know that it's probably an item that was once deemed completely and totally unsexy, and only through my powers of internet prawess will I be able to let this item shine again, like Kesha's face unwashed (you know, because she is so greasy and all).

First on the agenda--Glasses Necklaces (those are the little holders you attach to your eyeglasses so that you can hang your glasses around your neck). I know these little suckers have been deemed 'geezer-couture' for the past 30 years, but I find myself totally obsessed with the more updated and hipper versions of these glasses accessories. They are built in jewelry that you can wear in a totally newer way than just putting a necklace on.

I am commanding everybody to go out and buy some optic necklaces (as they are known in the optical world). If you are brave enough, go into your grandmother's sock drawer and pull out some of her more antique-y looking ones and shake what your grandma gave ya! (Unless it's at senior-citizen aerobics, in which case, keep that shaking to yourself.)

These are functional and pretty at the same time. Here are a few options from Corrinne McCormack (sold at Lord and Taylor).


So, I hope this was sexy enough for you. Here's hoping you don't get called 'four-eyes'...eeek! Flashbacks to third grade. Cue to exit. Ta-ta for now.
