Overcompensating With Accessories:

In MarciaLand, when one feels not quite up to the tasks at hand, one acccesorizes. Fabulously.



Have a really bad cold? Wear these earrings, and no one will notice!



This little pink Coach wristlet covers up for the fact that you don't know what you're doing... as long as you don't have much to carry with you while you fake it...


Been puking your guts out all morning? This necklace will distract people!


Feeling lost? Wrap a decorative scarf around your neck, waist, back, or even tie it in your hair...

(I can't decide which of these is my favorite... my first dangly earrings, the wristlet my husband gave me, the necklace I've worn regularly for 4 years, or the scarf I bought at a botique in Telluride when I was 11...)

Oh, Marcia, this post cracked me up. Where did you find earrings that long?! I always knew accessories were good for more than just gussying up an outfit.

Lovely photos of Marcia's couture. You should have a webcam of your closet. And then we could vote on your selections for special events.

Nothing like sassy clothing!

You are smarter than the average bear! Except you're not Yogi! And there are no pic-a-nic baskets involved! Only awesome jewelry!

Excellent advice. Will good accessories help ward off annoying people?

Kelly said...

Jsto said...

Hey, I know that decorative scarf. I wore my Burberry scarf with a perfectly matching blue top out today because I felt insecure this morning.

Do you have anything in a Conjunctivitis?

Marcia said...

Kat - the earrings are from Banana, 2 years ago. They almost touch my shoulders!

E-Liz - Good accessories will help ward off annoying people. But if you accessorize too much, the annoying people will see you, and comment on you. And that's bad.

Kelly - check out this

Jsto - yeah, the scarf's an oldie but goodie

Blog Portland - throw away any contacts, and get those sulfur-y drops from your doctor.

And you should credit your brother with providing the gift card that bought the earrings. MBBSR
