Mondays suck. There. I said it. Something is always just, I don’t know, off. There is either not enough caffeine in the world to revive you, you just aren’t completely out of the “weekend” mindset, or you, like myself this morning, were so frazzled whilst leaving the house you remembered your tea, buuuuuuuuut not your wallet. Henceforth, I’m a bit cranky. But that is neither here nor there.
With all of that being said … let’s talk about lions!
I’ve become obsessed with ridiculously gaudy gold jewelry. I can’t tell you where my obsession stems from, but all I know is that it’s fun and really makes an outfit. For example yesterday I wore an all black outfit, rather boring, with an insanely large gold lion necklace, and was complimented up and down. And if I wasn’t wearing that necklace people would have probably just been like, “oh look at that sad little goth girl.”
So back to this lion necklace. I was first confronted by one about a year ago. My heart fluttered and cartoon hearts began to appear all around me, and all I could think about was Versace … well, Maya Rudolph playing Donatella Versace specifically. Versace is known for their gaudy gold. And this lion necklace was definitely a throw back to that. Did I buy it? Well … no. And I wish I had a good excuse for this, but let’s just blame it on my severe shoppers remorse that I’m plaqued with.
Fast forward to present day when I frolicking through Nordstrom Rack and WAH-LAH, there was the lion necklace. And not just any gold lion necklace, a larger more gaudy lion necklace. I wasn’t going to let this guy get away from me this time. And I didn’t. He now lives on my jewelry rack in my room with tons of free space to roam with the other gold gaudy jewelry I own.
What I’m saying here is everyone is usually uber cranky on Monday’s and doesn’t want to be doing the adult-like things they have to do in order to survive. But what makes all of that better, is a Versace-inspired lion necklace. Nothing says, “suck it Monday,” more than that. Am I right? Talk to the lion.
Alright, everyone go get a lion necklace. Promise?
