Someone's garbage ...

can be someone' s treasure !

I received a box of old jewelry from a friend who wanted to get rid of it. I found this big pink funny necklace. I saw a big multicolored necklace at Banana's republic a few weeks ago and I resisted because it was indecently pricey for a plastic beaded necklace. I guess this "free" one fed my craving for color ! I wore it over a very conservative black blouse with a pencil skirt and it gave a nice "crazy" twist to my outfit

I paired it with wooden earrings : same family color....



This bag of unloved jewelry has found a good home. I don't think I am gonna throw a single thing away....

Have a wonderful week end, lovelies. I am a working girl this week end (9-17 Saturday and Sunday...)

  6. I agree what some people want to get rid of other people may love. I always tell my friends and relatives not to give away jewellery before I get a look at it.

  7. I love a monochromatic outfit with a pop of color. I tend to do blacks/greys with hints of red a lot.

    The pink necklace goes well with the black blouse. I like how the colour really stands out. And you inspire me to accessorize more :)

  24. You have the eye for the right things. That neck piece and earrings are perfect, good for you. My sister too, keeps on bringing a lot of junk when she comes to visit us, and many a time i have, just spent very little money to suit me, and wow it comes out looking beautiful, and makes my sister regret that she thought it was not worth keeping. I keep innovating, and I love to wear jewelery, all kinds, and they all look great on me.
