I have secretly always wanted to be either: a) Chrissie Hynde from The Pretenders or b) Cheri Curie from The Runaways (I don’t attempt to be as cool as Joan Jett – even in my dreams). So when news of The Runaways movie hit my ears, I was more than a little excited.
I haven’t seen the flick yet, but flipped through pics of the Los Angeles premiere and got inspired to marry my two passions together. The result? A little grrrl group jewelry primer to help us all get in touch with our inner rock star.
Girl Rock Glitz
The Go Gos, The Bangles, The Donnas – girl groups have one band to thank for paving the way. The Runaways merged 70s glam rock with Elvis-inspired throw backs – all wrapped in a package no one had ever seen before. Grab this guitar pendant from Macy’s or this bolt pendant from Zales to get the glitter going in your own jewelry box.
Lead singer, Cherie Curie, made her namesake fruit famous with their monster hit, Cherry Bomb (nab it on itunes if you don’t already have it in your arsenal). Pay homage to the blonde bombshell with this fruity pendant from Sears or these Betsey Johnson drop earrings that, well, say it all.
Joan Jett Jewels
A rock and roller through and through the signature jewel that says Joan has got to be the studded leather cuff. Nordies has several great styles to choose from to help you own up to that ‘Bad Reputation’. Or grab this black beaded sequin necklace like the one she wore to the premiere.
