Pocket/Necklace Change


So I got this beauty last week from my oh-so-awesome boyfriend. A necklace that holds quarters: practicality and beauty rolled into one- I love it! It comes from a delightful online shop called Snoozer Looser, often highlighted on the wonderful blog, Getting Beat Like You Stole Something.

I had eyed it a few weeks before and left subtle hints for my boyfriend. It went something like "{cough, cough} I want this for my birthday." Sometimes the magic works.


I apologize for the excessive posing above. I also got/bought myself a remote clicker thingy for my camera, as any serious amateur, amateur photographer should have. So I took about 50 photos of myself with the clicker and now feel like I could successfully give any narcissist a run for their money. 

You would think as a twin (living with her twin), I wouldn't need a remote shutter release. Unfortunately Cath and I hardly see each other during the week because of our separate schedules (boo) and separate boyfriends (good!). It's a good thing my face resembles hers or I would forget what she looked like.

Pretty brilliant.

I had a similar schedule with my fiancé Nate when I attended night classes at Uni. I'd only see him around 10 when I got home. We'd eat a late dinner, and he would go back to designing in the office and I would go to bed. But we always found ways to connect during the day.

Thankfully you have a twin.

Great outfit. Very funky-fresh.

I see a national show in the future for you guys. I mean, we're all learning so much about twins by reading this blog! And fashion, and Decatur, and....shouldn't we share this with the nation?!

Your poses always put a smile on my face. Enjoy your week!

Oh lord! Thanks for mentioning the remote clicker! BRILLIANT! I am totally investing in one, if I can. Also, your new necklace is the bomb. Say goodbye to not being able to feed the meter.

My sister and I hardly see each other during the week as well, I think it's pretty common:P

Oooh nice. Although now you won't have an excuse for any parking tickets...

thanks for the shout-out and I'm glad he got your hint.

Cool gift!

Gorgeous necklace! I love vintage inspired pieces - I tend to see a lot of the pendant = watch ones, but I"ve never seen one that holds quarters. How cool is that.

Oh, and a belated happy birthday to you both! :) Hope you girls had a great time celebrating!

lisa said...

What a great birthday present! Haha the hints paid off.

pamela said...

Way to give the bf a good hint, and way to take it bf! ;-)

Love it!

Em said...

That necklace is great, and the quarter-holding function is very creative!

Also, I agree with you about the camera remote--it's 1000 times better than awkwardly waiting 10 seconds for the auto timer, and is infinitely better than trying to take your own photo while holding the camera.

"It's a good thing my face resembles hers or I would forget what she looked like." LOL on that one. The necklace is lovely! I drop hints to my oh so receptive bf all the time, but he doesn't get them. Next time, I'll just have him reimburse me.

haha

Amelia said...

Ooh, my grandmother had a necklace like that, but for dimes. Very cool! I could definitely use a remote--10 second self-timer is such a pain.

last winter, i used a remote clicker too.
oh boy, i had a hard time taking my pictures
because i wanted it to look perfect.

Aww, your boyfriend definitely has a nice sense of style. The necklace is very unique.

luxelife said...

that necklace is AWESOME, and lar, you are soooo funny! :)

bonjouritsjinah said...

Oh that necklace is so fun! I haven't ever seen anything like it.

And I think you're onto something... Maybe I should have invested in a remote shutter release. Haha setting the self timer and running seven feet away isn't exactly conducive to amazing photos for me.
