Indeed they are, but did they ever really go away? The boys I mean. I grew up an esteemed princess amid two brothers, and while in my pearls still managed to keep up. The older I get, the more I shy away from excess and the instant attraction of the shiney and the pretty, the more simplicity holds substance and the more appeal being a tomboy has. Comfort is key and subtlety important. The statement is in the cut, the quality, the details and with such a basic approach a personal touch is defining - a chain, a pair of silver hoops, a series of bracelets - it all means something.
