After much time, harrassment, and the good conscious of Mr. Nosan, I, Austin, finally make my debut amongst such veterans that write for this blog. My goal with this and every other writing is to maintain what we here at Crooks do best, but you already knew that. Along those same lines, I want to bring a perspective that my counterparts do not have, and that is living within the epicenter of all law, regulation, and a different sense of style that is Washington, D.C. I promise no lengthy introductions will follow this one, so here we go!
Having only moved to the District recently, one thing has become very evident, an observation I will date back to many times. That being of what I refer to as the ‘khaki monsters’, commonly known as the nine to five government worker. Take a walk on the mall or through Capital Hill on a weekday and prepare for the inundation of pleated khakis. Now while this not only is not the focus of this post, nor is it necessarily a bad thing, I know that this subject will most likely carry over to a majority of my posts, as this sets the precedent and standard for why everything else is so different/weird/awesome in The District. With all of that said, the focus of this post is one thing, and one thing only, RINGS.
The subtleties and not so subtle statements of rings, I feel, tend to be lost amongst a fashion community more focused on bigger pieces. I personally have a knack for jewelry, being that a simple piece can set off a whole look. Such as this double ring, which various venders carry, such as Surface To Air, for a variety of prices and styles. Pending on what you are looking for, and how subtle or not subtle you feel like, you can always opt for a conversation starter from Surface To Air as well. Overall, jewelry offers a unique opportunity to set off your own personality in interesting ways.
Once again, I apologize if this post rants, rambles, or strays from the objective, but they will only progress from here. The District offers a very interesting prospective, and I hope to relay my vision onto all of you. This is the start of a beautiful relationship.
