Whenever you rush to accomplish anything in life, whether it’s for work or a simple household task, you often mess it up. That’s why taking your time is so important. Even when you are in a rush, you can still take your time and complete the task in a timely manner. When you take your time, it ensures that you won’t make little mistakes or overlook anything. The same is true in fashion. When you are getting dressed for work, you don’t just throw a bunch of things together (well, maybe if you are running late!) and head out the door. No — you take your time selecting the right pair of pants, button-down shirt, tie and cufflinks to wear. When you take your time, you end up with a good-looking ensemble.
If you rush, you could end up with a color mismatches or the wrong pair of cufflinks. No matter how much of a rush you are in, it’s important to remember that slow and steady always wins the fashion race. Perhaps this exquisite pair of Turtle Cufflinks can serve as a friendly reminder for you to take your time. Made from sterling silver, each cufflink resembles a beautiful turtle. Reminiscent of the famous fable, The Tortoise and the Hare, these cufflinks are perfect for any man who needs to slow down in life and fashion. You can find these Turtle Cufflinks in our Land Animal Cufflink selection, full of fun and playful animal cufflink designs for the animal lover in you. Just make sure that you take your time when selecting the right pair!
Things to DO now that Spring is finally here.
Four things to brighten your spring, enliven your cultural step, and add a little fashion to your fabric.
Take this little Animal Gecko Cufflink as inspiration–make sure to get out in nature at least once a week. This can be a simple stroll in the park, bird watching, short hikes, nature trails, or spending time in your backyard or fire escape lounging. If it’s a fire escape, though, please, watch out for the gaps. Vitamin D is something most Americans are lacking and it’s been linked to many physical and emotional ailments (specifically depression) so make sure you get your daily allotted 15 minutes of sun exposure. If this is impossible, take a daily vitamin. Take the kids to the zoo, see the animals, take a short drive over to the beach or lake….enjoy what mother Nature has to offer.
Take these Tateossian Turtle Cufflinks little with you for good luck, a bright spring color, and a whimsical reminder of the simpler things in life.
Take a road trip…preferably Jack Kerouac style, but we can’t all hitchhike our way West (or East). This means, letting it all go, packing ONE bag, filling up the tank, and just going. Stop at diners, visit local monuments, spend the night at camp grounds (preferably with showers). This Freeway Green Tateossian Cufflink reminds us of the importance of the open road, the vivid colors of nature, and the sleek austerity of the speeding, moving vehicle. Tateossian designed this cufflink with exactly that in mind.
And while you’re doing all this nature walking and bi-coastal traveling, make sure you bring a compass. Mapquest isn’t accessible everywhere and you may find yourself without wifi or a printer handy. (That’s the point, right?) if you really want to go old school, and have trouble navigating by the stars alone, try this functional Tateossian Compass Cufflink.
Visit a museum. If you are blessed enough to live in a Metropolis, take heed of all the art events taking place around your city. In NYC for example, there is an amazing Stein Collection on exhibit until June 3rd, 2012, featuring some never-before-seen-together Matisse, Picasso, Renoir, and others’ paintings. The collection is one of a kind and a must see. Similarly, at the 42nd Street Library there’s a famous Shelley Exhibit, honoring the life of the rogue/poet/lover/revolutionary Percy Shelley. Whatever it is…go to a museum this spring, preferably on a rainy day, and take in the beauty of Modern Art and public exhibits (normally free!)
Secondly create something yourself. If you’re not an artist, or have absolutely no flair for artistic creation, think of your wardrobe as assembling a masterpiece–carefully select everything “beautiful” from your socks to your cuffs. You will then be a walking Renoir, but since he rarely painted men, you probably won’t have all the curves.
