Operation Necklace!

I was going to wear a black t-shirt to a wedding. With a nice flowery skirt. A friend suggested accessorizing the t-shirt so it looks more dressed-up.

Like with a long necklace or something, you know?” said friend.

So I remembered that I had this long chain I bought for a project in 3rd year. And I have beads that seemed to go well with the colours of my flowery skirt and my pink shoes. So! Jumping quickly into action, I…

… took apart some of the links…

… and replaced them with beaded links made with jewelry wire…

hmmm.

I was kind of underwhelmed by the finished product. Something was missing. Or it was an awkward length. I wasn’t sure. More needed to be done. So I added to it the rest of the chain. It was quite a relaxing project while watching back-to-back episodes of Say Yes to the Dress on a Friday afternoon…

And finally, it was done! All 40 inches of it! I tried to wear it like this…

… but I wasn’t too impressed. I guess it looked OK

And then I tried it like this…

I think this is the winning look here! (I also really like how this picture turned out, with the “vivid” mode on my camera and the static in my hair  :P)

But then I thought it looked a bit odd with the neckline of the t-shirt…

So this is the way I ended up wearing it to the wedding…

I really liked the large green beads.

Unfortunately I forgot to take pictures of me with the necklace and the skirt and the pink shoes that day. They did go well together, I think. But I’m planning to wear both the skirt and the necklace again to another wedding in the fall (but not the shoes; they killed my feet) so I’ll remember to take some pictures then! :D

I don’t like going shopping very much, mainly because my feet get tired easily and so I don’t like to walk for a very long time checking out every store that kind of thing. And so when I find a dressy outfit that works I tend to wear it again and again to other dressy occasions. With some variations, of course. And I figure, especially at a wedding, nobody will notice that that bonhomme is wearing the same skirt she wore 3 months ago anyway because everyone will be looking at the bride :)

So, anyways, Operation Necklace was a success! And fun time spent with old friends and seeing a dear friend marrying his true love are priceless :D

Have a lovely Tuesday!
