Have nameplate necklaces been replaced... by mud flap girls? FabSugar has a feature today about the jewels, and we admit, we've been seeing them a lot lately. The charms capture the same trashy, supposedly cool vibe as their nameplate predecessor, but we like them even less. Why? Well, at least the nameplate necklace represented you - can anyone except for Dina Lohan claim that their identity, essence, or spirit is a mud flap girl? Ew! Maybe we're missing something - a vague strain of women's liberation, reclaiming your inner sex symbol, whatever - but we don't get it.
Our favorite alternatives: The Alex and Chloe "Kate" necklace, in which the girl is beautiful but upright, and hopefully walking away from the mud flap girls. It's $60. Meanwhile, the "Angry" and "Calm" necklaces from I Am Accessories start at $38. Bonus: The company gives its proceeds to charity. Double Bonus: You won't be copying Sarah Jessica Parker. Which is, of course, a style sin of the highest rank.
