True Romance

This post could go one of two ways:

– It could be a post about brutal, insane, murderous, instable romance a la Quentin Tarantino (& Brad Pitt in a most hilarious role), or…
– It could actually be about concentrated, pure romance.

Fortunately, because there are so few blood-and-guts-related garments or accessories to be had, the latter is our topic of choice on this fine Tuesday.

Last weekend, I was contacted by a shop called Brittany & Cooper linking me to their deceptively kitschy little jewelry site.

The pieces that caught my eye most often were these adorable, vintage-looking love pieces. They’re a little weathered, really mushy-mushy-lovey, and exceedingly charming.

French Love Meter

I’ve never seen this before – how cute, right? I love the idea of a “Love Meter”.

“He Loves Me” Spinner

Please do not use this for real-life situations.

Love Letter

I’ve seen a few incarnations of this one, but it never gets old. (Much like I would assume actual love letters never get old…)

Key To My Heart Pendant

I thought this was precious until I read the description: “OMG! You’ll totally win over your crush with this mega-hot Heart Key Pendant.” Let’s just not think about it. Hey, everyone has a demographic. Sometimes, you’re 10 years older than that demographic.

I Love You Postcard

Awww. S’cuuute. (This one is for the girl who is as cute as the one who got the Love Letter necklace, but requires less attention.)

So, what have we learned?

If you’re a good person: You can give the “I Love You” postcard to your Mom or best friend or something.

If you’re a bad person: These are a really great, passive aggressive way to make your one single friend feel inferior.

Just sayin’.

  • I wonder… do the French Love Meter and Spinner both work? That would be a plus if they did! :)

    SO glad I had no coffee at this point, as I’d have spat that shit all over the computer screen.

    I actually have the I Love You love letter/envelope necklace. My boyfriend got it for me last year for my birthday and I think it’s really cute! And… because the letter is inside the envelope, our relationship isn’t constantly in people’s faces. And when people ask, I don’t mind opening it up and telling them about it. I think these are all really cute!

  • I feel like such a cynic – I know these are adorable, but I can’t imagine wearing them. Maybe my heart has finally become a lump of coal …

  • Ah, love ’em! Though more blood-and-guts+love-related accessories might be kind of fun too. It’d definitely be a niche market, that’s for sure… ;-)

    Those are sweet. I bet they have the “best friends” pendants too.

  • These are so cute and perfect for Valentine’s Day.

    Hint to guys who want to win my heart. I don’t like chocolate or flowers but jewelry is always good. Especially if it’s a mushy $15 love letter necklace!

  • These are great!

  • Love love it! :) Think I’ll send this link to the boyfriend for hints ;)

  • I have an eye for jewelry (even without someone to give it to at the moment). I LOVE this love spinner… thx @misselle
