The moment Givenchy showcased their A/W12-3 collection featuring bejeweled septum rings, everyone was wondering how far one would go to accessorize their nose this fall. Has simply hanging things off your ears lost its luster that we need to find more orifices to dangle jewelry? The answer is yes we do (but lets steer away from the word 'orifice' from now on). I was hesitant in making this purchase due to its omnipresent quality, but if there is even the slightest chance I'm meeting Riccardo in the next two months or so, I'd like to be nasally prepared for our encounter. Though it may seem that this would cause some discomfort, this little piece of craftsmanship is surprisingly comfy to slide on and keep on. The annoying thing is just that I just keep picturing the dreaded scenario of myself sneezing in public, hoping it would stay on whilst I compose myself. Fingers-crossed that when this does happen, I don't end up coating my nose ring in unmentionable nasal secretions. Oh god, perish the thought ladies and gentlemen.
