O.O.O. Not Just a Pretty Face

Welcome to the first O.O.O.,  Objects Of Obsession post, or rather ooOOOOoOO, I WANT IT NOW!

Joan from AMC's Mad Men

This week focusing on Joan's Pen Necklace.   I know this pen has been blogged about so. many. times. since she wears it in every episode so we're going to step it up to feature JEWELRY WITH A PURPOSE.  If everything that was ornamental and pretty was also able to function as a useful object, I think we'd get a lot farther as a a society.  Here are some things I wantwantwant:





Clockwise from top left: Compass necklace at Urban Outfitters: $28, Gold Plate drill bit necklace from Kielmead.com: $130,  Snow globe ring from momastore.org: $6,  NYC Subway Metro cuff by Tiffany Burnette at http://www.designhypeinc.com/ 

Brings another meaning to the phrase "make it work."

Two things!

First, I am glad that someone has validated my wearing Bonne Bell Lip Smackers necklaces from ages 10 - 15. Thanks Amanda. I knew I'd like you.

Secondly, I'd argue that Christina Hendricks herself (not just Joan, dangerously hot as she is) is a style icon herself. Sorry, I'll say it -- I love how she rocks those hips and butt. She ain't no Calista Flockhart. Also, check out the lovely 20's-themed wedding she had with that dorky guy that's been in random movies. The mismatched bridesmaids dresses!
