Go America! Wonder Woman Cuff Bracelets

After President Obama’s announcement that U.S. forces killed Osama bin Laden in Pakistan last night, any fascination with royal happenings across the pond has been whole-heartedly replaced with good old-fashioned patriotism. Go America!

I’ve been reading The Wonder Woman Chronicles Vol. 1. What better way to express joy over American justice than by wearing some Wonder Woman cuff bracelets?

Tiara Fever & Crown Jewelry

I believe that tiara fever has now reached its historical apex.

What tiara will Kate Middleton choose to wear at the royal nuptials in less than 24 hours? The Duchess of Teck? The Strathmore? The Delhi Durbar? I’m rooting for the George III Tiara, if for no other reason than that a middle-aged British woman stands to win £72,000 if she does.

Who will win prom queen on Glee? The teenage tiara lust on that show is almost overwhelming, although it’s been amazing watching Quinn, Santana and Lauren are all going through straight-up Machiavellian machinations to achieve the crown.

Who will go to see Disney’s “Prom” opening this weekend? Will there be a prom queen tiara worthy of a Disney princess?

And why has it take me so long to re-listen to Hole’s “Live Through This”?

My kind of prom queen: messy eyeliner, perfect tiara.

So for every would-be princess living on the income of a teenage prom queen, here is some affordable crown jewelry to feed your tiara fever on a budget.
