1.20.10 - The Day I Blogged About Etten Eller

A couple of months ago I was visiting my friend in Los Angeles and he and his girlfriend took me shopping at Barney's - despite the fact that I couldn't afford a thing! Anyway, it was fun to walk around the store and I did stumble upon Etten Eller's 03.21.2007 vintage brass necklace - which I have been lusting after ever since. Each piece of the Etten Eller jewelery line is identified by a date, and this piece apparently marks the date she met a love (who she later lost). The necklace features three delicate watch gears and a toggle closure. The price tag is a little steep at $270, but a girl can dream.

It's kind of fun to peruse the dates chosen for the Etten Eller pieces - here are a few I found interesting:

01.16.1974 - The day Kate Moss was born
06.18.1967 - The day Jimi Hendrix lights his guitar on fire (for the first time)
03.01.1693 - The day the Salem Witch Trials began
01.29.1998 - The day the designer was arrested as a teen for buying beer
