I'm always on the lookout for studs.
I was totally intrigued one day in college when my roommate and I were hanging a heavy mirror in our new bachelorette pad and she asked if I had a studfinder handy.
"A studfinder?!" I exclaimed!
"You mean to tell me that there is actually an invention out there that helps women locate studs? Glory, glory hallelujah!"
She just shook her head, handing me the hammer.
Oh. She meant those other, less interesting wall studs.
I now have a very studly boyfriend at home who hangs all of my heavy things for me, but that doesn't mean I'm still not on the lookout for the perfect stud. Here are a few studworthy pieces that help me out whenever I want to feel 100% rock star studded.
This cutesy Colorblock Stud Tube Dress from Wet Seal may look like it just stepped out of a clip from The Wedding Singer, but if you didn't already know, the 80's are back jack. And don'tcha just adore the fem/rock contrast with the flirty bubble skirt paired with that rockin' disco ball waistline?
There's always time for studs. When it comes to accessories, the first studded piece that comes to mind is the classic studded belt. Been there, done that. Go for the unexpected and make a statement of the times with this Burberry Studded Timepiece that doubles as a functional watch and as a tough cuff bracelet.
Not all studded styles involve black leather. Add a pop of color with these sophisticated lavender Masha Croc Slides from Forzieri . Highlighted by silver studs and an elegant buckle detail, your stems will look like they go on for days and then some.
Last but not least, challenge Bo and Luke Duke to a game of Stud poker in these short short Daisy Duke Studded Shorts from Kitson, or wear them the next time you wash your car with a studded bikini top to match.
You'll probably find some studs along the way... and I'm not talking wall studs.
