A new old design that I just recently picked up at one of my mother's antique shops...Gypsy Street Antiques. To be entirely fair...while I don't usually hone in on the color Orange for wearable objects, this orange plasticy goodness practically jumped up and down and waived it's little anthurium petals at me from across the shop...
In a very provocative way.
So, I slipped it on to indulge myself, because it's not often that a piece of jewelry so decidedly and so obviously flirts with me, and then once around my neck, decided that I may just have to have to bring it home with me.
The fact that it is crazy vintage plastic and orange are all secondary bonuses.
Today this sweet piece made its fashion debut around my neck and I have gotten a whole slew of compliments.
(the tellers at the bank were especially sweet as all of their jaws dropped when I walked in and they said, "You look totally hot today! Would you mind going out and walking back in?" Which made me more of a giggly blushing person...and added a bit of twinkle to my eye and a bit of confidence to my step. Now, normally this kind of thing doesn't happen to me...and it's happened a lot today, perhaps it's due to the navy fitted dress that I've paired this necklace with, along with my matching orange wedges...maybe it's that my gym time has finally caught up with me...perhaps it's my Dior decorated eyelashes or the fact that some day's you just got it? Whatever the case may be, and no matter how amazed I am to hear all the compliments, I would be lying if I told you they weren't making me smile...and now at this stage? I'm seriously considering adopting this as my official uniform...)
Sweet surprises from the land orange plasticy goodness indeed.
