A couple of weeks ago, while shopping my closet, I realized that I actually own a few Chartreuse pieces - of course, they're all not called Chartreuse for if they were, I wouldn't have purchased quite so many pieces of the same color would I, or would I? Hmmmm....
But one thing I did realize was that I needed a necklace in the same color to pull my outfits together. So after much searching, I came to the realization that I had to make something of my own for I couldn't seem to find anything in a similar color.
I finally finished designing this necklace last night and couldn't wait to wear it. The necklace falls to about mid-chest and is made with Chartreuse colored Fresh Water Pearls that have been off-set drilled. I particularly love the way they sit when I wear them. They remind me a lot of J Crew's Stone Bead Ribbon Necklaces which I so love but cannot justify spending $55 for them.
Anyway, today's outfit was built around my new necklace. I've got my Golden Avocado Perfect Fit Flower Tee, Dark Peony Lea Merino Cardigan, Black Trousers from BR, Black Ankle Boots (even though the picture shows Black Pumps - I changed them after - since it was freezing this morning) and topped my outfit off with my new necklace.
What do you think of my new necklace? Was it worth the time and effort or should I have simply gotten the Stone Bead Ribbon Necklace afterall? Personally, I don't remember if the J Crew version ever came in Chartreuse.
