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
$13

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


“He Loves Me” Spinner
$13

Please do not use this for real-life situations.


Love Letter
$12

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
$15

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
$12

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… http://bit.ly/cFCP2I thx @misselle
