Inspired By History.

I am thinking that we are gong to see Celtic/Norse inspired, or Historical based, jewelry and clothing items become popular in the next few months.

Ancient designs with a wink at the modern so to speak.

Feast your eyes on this necklace:

I love, love, love, this necklace! It feels like it could be in a museum but, would be great for wearing out and about too! Look at the knot design! Wow!

This bag is also very "I woud see it in a museum but, would wear it":

I like the colour of the leather and the chains well as the studding. It just looks like something that would be worn in the 4th century or around that time. I would wear it today with just the right outfit.

These boots:

The boots just make me want to take up sword fighting, take a sailing ship to and pillage a village, or kick some invader's ass! I love them and the lacing is just so cool to look at.

Yes, I think the whole Celtic/Norse (and other early historical times)  inspired, items are going to start invading the fashion world in the next few months. It's just a deep feeling I have. Let us see if I am right.

Great boots. And of course it's time for historical things to become hot. Since I started doing it in 2006 and we all know the world is about 3 years behind me :-P

The world is about 6 months to a year behind me...and I have been sneaking historical looking jewelry (Celtic, Nordic, Mayan, etc) into my outfits for many years, with it being really concentrated in the past year.

It's past time!
