Necklaces

I usually try to keep my jewelry collection very sparse. If I have more than 30 pieces, I start loosing track of what I have and half the items go unworn for months. That being said, since the start of the new year, I've acquired two new necklaces.

Lauren and I each purchased the letter necklaces below from Vivid Boutique in Decatur. They're a lot more elegant than the name necklaces that Carrie Bradshaw brought back in style a few years ago and they're handmade by the shop owner. Best of all, one necklace only costs around $40.


Lauren recently made a trip over to Urban Outfitters. They're having a huge sale and she bought these two necklaces (one for me and one for her) for $2 each. They were both originally $24.

I love the asymmetry of this necklace. The dangling black chains are meant to be worn off-center. (I purchased the bird pin at a local boutique a few years ago for $8).


This is the necklace Lauren bought for herself. It's very delicate and a little punk-y at the same time. Urban Outfitters also wraps everything in this graph tissue paper, which is like the icing on the cake of the whole purchase - two great necklaces and some cheeky tissue paper all costing no more than $5.

Jen, we'll get right on it. There's so many great fashion blogs that it will be hard to choose!

Wendy, I hadn't even thought about combining the two until I took that photo.

Bitterbabe, yeah, visit your nearest UO now!

Eleh, that's exactly what I thought. They're such great finds.

Lynn, does UO ship to you?
