I am so into the Rapunzel-length braid that Rihanna has been wearing lately. She worked the look at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute gala in New York last week and again in Paris on Sunday.
I also loved her recent Rolling Stone cover.
Maybe her red hair is making me think of red gems, because I’m convinced that Rihanna needs my sex-ay, ruby-nippled Mud Flap Jill necklace.
The necklace is named for gorgeous blogger Jill of Stella’s Roar, who special-ordered a pair of “mud flap girl” silver cufflinks for her lucky husband. (I’m always happy to fill special orders. Read this post to understand custom orders and click here to make a request.) What I like about this design is that it’s saucy but subtle because the pendant is so petite.
A while ago, on another website, someone accused me of being anti-feminist for using the mud flap girl image. Humph! Okay, I confess that I would have been scandalized myself back in the day, but, like I’ve said before, I’m not as tightly wound as I used to be. Plus I’ve noticed that the typical purchasers of Mud Flap Jill are exceptionally self-confident, smart and independent wimmin who love to laugh. I’m not worried about oppressing those bad bitches!
Anyway, if Rihanna wore my Mud Flap Jill necklace, I would
totally forgive her for stealing my leopard-print Dolce & Gabbana dress last year. Just tell me where to send it, RiRi!
