Many of you who know us here at Max’s know that we are huge fans of Vicente Agor…both his gorgeous jewelry as well as the man. We were thrilled to learn of the recent profile of him that San Francisco Magazine did as he so deserves this recognition. I have to say that his quote “life’s too short to be mousy” makes me smile inside and out every time I read it or hear it (and I’ve heard him say this MANY times!). Aside from causing me to have that screeching Road Runner moment in my brain, questioning whether I really want to walk out of the house wearing whatever it is I’m wearing for fear of invoking images of Mickey (maybe Minnie?) in others, it really does speak to a major fashion trend right now. Things have become so casual, it sometimes seems as there’s sometimes a blurred line between casual and “blah” (a.k.a., mousey). Don’t get me wrong…I’m all for casual and can usually be seen here in the store in jeans, but I do believe that great jewelry can not only make the outfit, but can also change the whole look of something that is otherwise very plain to an outfit that becomes striking in its simplicity and ease.
Ok, so it’s not going to go down in history as one of the world’s greatest quotes like “Ask not what your country can do for you….” or “Despite everything, I believe that people are really good at heart”, but doesn’t it make you smile….just a little?
