A Trend Rises Up

Get it?  That title was meant to be a pun but I don't suspect you'll follow prior to reading this, so I really should change it, but o well it's already there so...

These storms have now caused me to miss 7 days of school total.  This has given me plenty of time to catch up on various tv shows on my laptop (still no power).  While watching these shows I noticed a similarity: Sarah Jessica Parker (Glee) and Blake Lively (Gossip Girl) both sported diamond pheonix necklaces.  I was astounded as just last week I bought an extrodinarily similar one for $12.80 from Forever 21; the one SJP wore on Glee is $830!  This promted me to do more research and I have conluded that a phoenix trend is among us:


Clockwise from top: Shourouk phoenix necklace, Sarah Jessica Parker wearing the Shorouk necklace on Glee, Zara necklace (great price), Anthropologie beaded version, Shourouk cuff, Blake Lively wearing the shortened version of the Shourouk necklace, the shortened Shourouk necklace, and a Lanvin art deco interpretation (my favorite).

The phoenix, in classical mythology, represents a unique bird that lives for five or six centuries, burns itself in a funeral of sorts, and then rises from the ashes renewed with youth to live through another cycle of centuries; no wonder it's a popular accessory! 

Here I am in my Forever 21 version: 



I think it's almost identical to the one Lively is wearing; it was a pretty damn good bargain if you ask me.  It's no longer available on the site, but I bought it last week in the store so it's probobly still there if your dying to emulate a bird rising from the dead, which I recommend you do immediately. 

By now I hope you have realized that my title refers to a phoenix rising from the ashes; get it now? Thanks for listening to me today. See you soon!
