I thought this outfit could use a little sass and my new necklace was a perfect addition. Like I mentioned in a previous post, I didn't get this piece of jewelry because it looked like real silver. I prefer that it is a piece of 'costume' jewelry. I understand the reason behind the term, it's not real metal, but it always brings up imaged of little girls playing dress-up with their little tutu's and plastic crowns. This necklace is not plastic and instead a cheaper metal. I loved the look of the necklace peeking through the V of my unbuttoned shirt.
These shoes found their way to my house after a very tense EBay auction months ago. I have gotten a ton of wear out of them since and can only figure their old owners gave them away because the back of the shoe rubs on my heels. I slick on a little blister blocker and I am good to go. Plus the leather material helps to keep my feet warm in the cold conditions of our plant. And no one can deny the extra preppy feel added by red shoes with a button down shirt.
