Buying Jewelry for Women

Lots of people mistakenly think that being gay is synonymous with good taste in clothing and jewelry. If you saw the way I dress half the time, you would know this is entirely untrue.

Especially difficult is buying jewelry for women. Mostly because I don't "have" to very often. I don't know the first thing about it. Things I find attractive many of my friends tell me are gawdy and tacky. Maybe it's because I don't ever think how this would look on a person, and I am drawn to big pieces because then I can actually see the detail. Maybe it's because lots of the jewelry I see is worn by drag queens.

I walked into Macy's today with a friend and right at the entrance I spotted these necklaces, and I thought "great for the wedding." They keep with the theme, they remind me of the embellishments on the front of the invites, they will go fine with black dresses which are a little low cut, I have 180 days to return them, and they were on sale! My friend assured me they were ok, and seeming as I trust her sense of style I bought one for each of the women in our wedding party. Let's hope they don't end up looking like drag queens.

Buying jewelry is so darn hard! I try to find every possible idea and then feel overwhelmed and can't decide. Oie.
