Fashion Show!

As all the cool kids know, I am now the prouder-than-I-should-be owner of a 90-inch pearl necklace. The giant box of awesome arrived Thursday and ever since I've felt like a little girl playing dress up. And while the necklace did not come with an instruction manual, there are youtube videos demonstrating gajillions of ways to wear it. I'm in a show off-y mood, so you guys get to see some of them. Woot.

Yep, this baby hangs down past my knees . . . stretched out straight it would be nearly three feet taller than I am!!

Dude . . . I'm short . . .

This one did not turn out nearly as cool as I was hoping. At least you can kind of tell that I'm totally twirling my necklace '20s style.

Yes ladies and gentleman, I can make a QUADRUPLE STRANDER out of just this one baby. How awesome is that?

Trying to remove said quadruple strander. I'm pretty sure this is how I'm going to die.

Okay, so Luke zoomed in a little close on this one, so you don't get the full effect of the three different lengths with the pendant in the middle, but it kind of rocks.

"The Scarf." Introduced at the party as a look "quite appropriate for the more mature lady" . . . hence my silly snooty pose. Mom got offended when we all looked at her after the more mature line. All I have to say is she was the only one there over the age of 30 . . . what did she expect? :-)

Gonna have to work on this one . . . it's "knot" looking quite the way I envisioned. (sorry, I'm a sucker for a bad pun!)

Doubled up, then twisted. I really like this one.

A pearl necklace with a pendant? Say what now?! :-)

Not doubled, just twisted.

Twisted, then doubled. The possibilities for fun are endless!!

Does this not totally remind you of the bolero ties that used to be all the rage back in the day? If I remember correctly, grandpa wore them all the time . . .

Don't you love how my wonderfully sensitive skin is crying "ABUSE!! ABUSE!!" And by wonderfully, I of course mean ridiculously and obnoxiously.

Seriously, those blotches? Just from the pressure of the pearls against my skin. LAME!!!

Luke said to do a cheesy pose. Apparently he wasn't paying much attention to all these other pictures he'd taken . . .

Anyway, so there you have it . . . as they say. Which one's your favorite? Any suggestions for other looks? And grandma, I am SO jealous that you have one that's ten inches longer . . . although if this one had another ten inches I'd have probably killed myself by now. And it probably would have been by tripping over it. Because I? Am Just. That. Talented.

P. ost S. cript
This is one of those times I feel like I should feel bad for laughing . . . but holy crap, it's funny!!!!!


  1. I say twisted with a pendant...

  2. Three tier- and the double up and twisted are my favorites. SOOO cute!

  3. I want one of those... though i think id struggle a little making it do all those things.... A pearl necklace with a pendant? Say what now?! i think thats my favorite though.

  4. Okay, this is SO awesome!!! I want one :) I love the quadruple loop thingy... yes, and I love your jokes, you're very punny :) hope to see you and your necklace in person tomorrow!

  5. bolo, not bolero

    And I so wish I could have come to the party and get a cool necklace. But then I would have had to sit in the mature lady section....

  6. I had a feeling that bolero was wrong, but I knew I was close. :-)
