A few weeks ago, I was bemoaning to The Boyfriend about how I can't shop, which is like, the worst thing ever, blah, blah, blah, and was browsing Anthropologie's website when I saw the Double Torsade necklace. It beckoned, me sparkling. It was beautiful. It was $28.
"Look!" I shouted to TB. "Isn't it wonderful?"
And then Glee came back from commercial and nothing more was said, until a few days later, when I confessed to TB that I had purchased the necklace. (Jewelry isn't included in the ban.)
His eyes expanded in that rapid way that lets me know something's up.
"You DID? I just ordered that today for you for our anniversary!"
I sent the one I ordered back.
So, basically, my boyfriend listens to hints. Which why I totally would like to state here, why, yes, I sure would like an iPhone 4. And perhaps a snow cone.
The other cool thing about this outfit is that I made the skirt! I found the tutorial online from Susan of Freshly Picked here. I invited a friend over for a little sewing party, and FOUR hours later, a skirt!
After looking at all the tutorials, I went ahead and added contrasting pockets.
Let's just all agree not to notice my cuticles, okay?
I love the versatility of this skirt. And how, when paired with the tube top, it totally looks like a high-end dress. I'm sure I'll be making more of these!
