I lost an earring this week. It wasn’t the first earring I’ve lost, but it was an earring I adored, and I’ve owned it only a couple of months. I’m having a replacement made because they reflect me more than any other earrings I’ve ever owned. Looking like miniature gold fish skeletons, they dangle and sway easily. I planned to make these my “signature” earrings.
I wear the same five silver bracelets on my right arm every single day, so I guess you’d call them my “signature” bracelets. Strangers compliment them all the time, which pleases me. I bought them over a few years and they’ve become part of my “family.” I’ve also adopted the color orange, which my sister loved first. It’s a happy color. That’s why it’s the FOF “signature” color.
Another FOF friend is known for her Hermes scarves and jewel-encrusted brooches, and other for her pin-straight, dark hair, which is cut in a bob. She’s worn the exact same hairstyle for years, so I consider it her “signature” hair.
Even if I’m only talking about pieces of jewelry and hairstyles, I think there’s something cool about the idea of “signature” looks. Usually, the things we wear all the time reflect our personalities. My pal’s bob reminds me of her exacting nature. She prefers things to be in their place and is a perfectionist. The FOF Hermes scarf and pin aficionado is conservative, yet colorful and intricate. Like my five bracelets, I am eclectic.
