My love affair with owls began in August of 2006, when Paul & Joe released a Plaid Owl Bag as part of their GO! International Collection for Target. Here we are two-and-a-half years later, and I’m still infatuated with the nocturnal animals, and constantly looking to add bits and pieces of them into my everyday life – and wardrobe.
For over six months I have searched high and low for an owl pendant necklace that was equal parts wearable, adorable, and unique. Finally, my search has ended. The Kenneth Jay Lane Owl Necklace is the absolute perfect neck accessory. The owl pendant is 2-inches wide, and features white, gold, and red colors; but the best part is that there are little blue and green rhinestones that construct his eyes. Plus, the chain is 24-inches long which absolutely thrills me because…long necklaces are my favorite!
Finding the perfect purse is hard work. There are certain requirements that it has to fill before you truly decide to take the plunge and invest even the tiniest amount in. When it involves a purse adorned with pink beaded flowers, polka dots, and a wide-eyed owl, like this Darling Owl Purse, however, all requirements go out the window, and you simply shell out the cash. After all, how often do you find a purse as sweet and whimsical as this?
I’ve always been a stud person. Mainly because I fear that I’ll snag my earring on a sweater, and do some sort of irreparable damage to my earlobe. But even I can’t resist these Night Owl Earrings in Silver. The two-and-a-half-inch owl is undeniably cute, and sports black rhinestone eyes on a bed of silver that pop in the sunlight. What I adore is the fact that the owl comes in three pieces that are attached to one another via little clasps, so when you walk – or dance – the owl looks like he’s coming to life with every step you take.
I absolutely refuse to leave the house without some sort of headband or barrette peeking through my light brown hair; it’s just against my way of thinking. So you can just imagine the joy that overcame me when I spotted these Three Owls Hair Clips. The silver-toned bobby pin, adorned with the one-inch trio of antique-washed owls give your style a vintage, no-fuss look. These are the perfect find that I can’t help but hoot about!
As much as I love the chic look of black and white prints, sometimes a splash of color is a welcome treat, and Susie Ghahremani’s Organ Owls, is full of retro colors that can truly dress up a stark white wall. Ghahremani’s childlike hand is like a breath of fresh air – one that has captured my owl-loving heart, and a place on my bedroom wall.
Have you ever put something on your wish list and left it there untouched for months on end? Well, I’m currently guilty of such a crime. Wesley the Owl: The Remarkable Love Story of an Owl and His Girl by Stacey O’Brien has been sitting on my Amazon wish list since...November 11, 2008. Maybe, since I’m in a very bookish mood at the moment, now is the time to give it a whirl.
