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’.
