  • Choker necklaces: a relic of the 1990s or the 2590s BC? I take a closer look into the history of one of my favorite trends from elementary school and adulthood: the choker. From gold beads to plastic, it's definitely evolved over the past few thousand years.

    FUN FACT: Shah Jahan never actually saw the finished project of the Taj Mahal because his son locked him in dungeon for the rest of his life. He also had plans to build a black version opposite of it for his grave, but like I said he was locked up for the last 8 years of his life. Let's just say I feel very bad for him
