What A Gem!

This Wear it Wednesday the heat has Rebena saying hello to unexpected details and statement accessories. This week, it’s all about the drop earrings.
ErdemIf Rebena could only get her paws onto these Erdem Double Drop Earrings – they might just give her the confidence to rule the World.  Wear drop earrings with an up-do and bare neckline like the lady above – this is a great way to showcase your favorite glittering gems.
uhuhThese whimsical beauties are a “drop stud” style, created by Lulu Frost.  These earrings feature crystal lips and eyes that create a unique pair of asymmetrical earrings inspired by surrealist paintings from the 1920’s.
SparkleIf you aren’t into serious sparkle, check out semi-precious gemstones like these turquoise drop earrings from La Malu Boutique.  They are a step up from the seriousness associated with simple studs and do not overwhelm an outfit.  Will you be wearing any trendy ear candy this season?  Let Rebena know what you’ll be putting on your ears in the comments below.  If you are looking for good, quality thrifted earrings and jewerly, check out Rebena’s shop.

Marie-Thérèse Walter

Pablo

Marie-Thérèse Walter was the French mistress and model of Pablo Picasso from 1927 to about 1935, and the mother of his daughter, Maya Widmaier-Picasso.  Their relationship began when she was seventeen years old; he was 45 and still living with his first wife, Olga Khokhlova.  In Picasso’s paintings, Walter always appears as blonde, sunny and bright.  1Picasso and Walter kept their relationship secret.  Walter lived close to Picasso’s family, who lived in an apartment provided by and next door to his art dealer and friend, Paul Rosenberg, in Rue La Boétie. From 1930, she stayed in a house opposite Picasso’s at Rue La Boétie 44.  Picasso supported Marie financially, but he never married Marie. On October, 20 1977, four years after Picasso’s death, Marie-Thérèse committed suicide by hanging herself in the garage at Juan-les-Pins, South of France.

This collage was done by artist Luca Mainini.  Be sure to check out Luca’s Tumblr, where Rebena is spending all of her time on the web these days.  His art is mostly surrealist collages that look like pop culture on acid.  Can’t.  Get.  Enough.  Luca.  Anyhoo, the ad is for Giorgio Armani – March 2013.  Oh geez, I can’t stop.  Just one more….
4.-Magic-FlowerLuca takes all of the loudest elements of pop culture and chops ’em up into small pieces.  Then magically stitches them back together to create an alien form redolent only of something that might have happened in a horror film once.  Luca’s work is like a jolt of electricity to the head.

Directed by Adria Petty (one of the masterminds behind Beyoncé’s “Countdown” video) and featuring a song by French pop duo Brigitte, the video is like a surrealist take on a typical cosmetics ad.  Trippiest lipstick ad I’ve ever known.
