Dear Paula Mendoza, I Love You

Paula Mendoza Jewelry

{Paula Mendoza Glacucus Gold-Plated Coil Necklace, MAC Rebel lipstick}

Once in a blue moon, an accessory comes along that you just can’t seem to get out of your mind. You see it everywhere: on your Instagram, on Rihanna, on Facebook. It pops up in every glossy you read. It haunts you like a ghost.

I began my love affair with Paula Mendoza like any other infatuation. It was a flirtation at first. An, “Oh, well that’s interesting.” But like the jewelry itself, the pieces crawled on me, metaphorically speaking.

I ran into a friend at lunch one day that was wearing the Nereus Bracelet and accosted it like a complete sociopath and screamed (yes! screamed!). There’s simply something to be said about seeing things you pine for in the flesh in blood. It makes the delusion REAL.

I was now in full-blown panic mode. As in, after lunch, I raced home, fired up my laptop and ordered the necklace from Moda Operandi.

With the Glacucus Coil Necklace now secured around my neck, there’s only one, well, two problems: I still agonize over procuring the matching serpentine-like Nereus bracelet and Adrianne ring.

And so the obsession ensues.
