Link Monster


Have you ever ordered something and then gotten it in the mail only to find that you grossly underestimated it's size? Oh it's just me? The rest of you must actually read descriptions before you buy something. I saw this on Gilt Group, and I happened to have a credit from something else I had returned, so I bought it. It looked to me like it would be a nice single layer link necklace. in a normal person size. Boy was I wrong! They hooked me with the neon/gold combination, and I just didn't see the monstrosity of it coming.




I was nervous to actually wear the necklace out and about. I wore it a little bit at work, and didn't wear it into Kroger. But I wore it to Goodwill! You can pretty much wear anything to Goodwill, though, so I don't know if that counts. I haven't fully decided if I want to keep it. I honestly don't see myself ever wearing it again, and I don't even know where I'll put it. It won't fit on my necklace hanger thing, so right now it's just in a box. If you think it's just the bees knees, you can buy it in my Goodsie store! Or if you have a very bold friend that would like it, link 'em up. If no one buys it, I'll just keep it around for parties, or to wear like this...


details:
shirt- Express
jeans- Target
shoes- Old Navy
ring- antique store
necklace- Adia Kibur (it's a $100 piece, I will sell it for $30)
 
I should also address how much I love this location. It's an old Dutch Colonial style inn in town that is now being used for offices by a church. I can't wait to do more photos there! I took some wedding portraits there once, and I loved them. It's also conveniently close to Goodwill, where Margaret and I can browse. She's my Goodwill good luck charm. I always find the best stuff when I go with her!

Hey Kristi I think you should just make a belt out of it. I think that would look cool on someone your size.

I agree with making it a belt. Or you could take off a strap of a black purse and attach the chain and that can be the new strap.

This post is awesome. I especially love the head swinging pic!!!
That necklace is cool, but I see your point. I'm not sure how much use it would get. So sad. I hate when that happens.
