Rethinking trends

My perception of Tiffany & Co. has been tampered by years of spotting eighth graders in giant heart tag charm necklaces. I'm sure there was a time in my early life when late nights watching Breakfast at Tiffany's was the only thought that crossed my mind when hearing about the jewelry company, but eventually that was forgotten when all the cool girls in seventh grade started wearing the signature heart tag charms. I never asked my parents for one because they looked too chunky for my taste, but to this day, you can still spot the cool girls in middle school by their Tiffany & Co. heart tag charms and Abercrombie jeans.
That said, I'm entranced by the new Tiffany & co. advertisements -- in fact, Hye Park (my favorite model) is wearing a heart charm bracelet.

I almost forgot that style can combine the most cliché trends with one's individual preferences. American Apparel leggings, Tiffany & Co. heart charms, and Rainbow sandals seem to be staples throughout teenage America -- but for logical reasons: the leggings are high-quality, the charms are sweet enough to please a mother, and the sandals are extremely comfortable.
