Who Wear What When

Charmed, I’m Sure

April 10, 2009

I spent twelve hours and some loose change at Georgetown Studios on Wednesday shooting the big, glorious, super-dreamy fashion spread for our next issue of Seattle Met Bride & Groom. Shoot days are always a mixed bag of emotions. They’re exciting, nerve-racking, inspiring, terrifying, and, well, really really long and exhausting even when you know that the hard work is going to yield gorgeous pages. We had a really amazing crew this time around, and that makes all the difference. Among them was a dude named Kristian Marson whose role was assisting our photographer.

I say "dude" because of what I am going to say next: Kristian was wearing the most amazing necklace.

Aside from watches and the occasional ring, men-gay, straight, butch, metro, scruffy, tidy, young, old, in between, whatever-don’t tend to wear much jewelry, so to witness one completely pulling off a necklace with an appropriately rumpled plaid snap-front shirt, skinny jeans, and sneakers, well, I was impressed. And then he told me he basically designed it and had it made — out of a pair of earrings he purchased with all this in mind. Just plain charming.

I’m sure that Kristian, who was exceedingly laid-back and cool-as-could-be for every one of Wednesday’s twelve hours, will be horrified that I’m posting two photos of him, but I need you to see the two somewhat delicate wings that hang from the chain.

I’m sure he’ll also be horrified when I suggest that dudes all over the city would do well to follow his lead.
