Use the Good Stuff day 4: Vintage crystal necklace


I got this necklace for my sophomore homecoming. And yes, that was long enough ago to be vintage. I wore it with a deep navy asian print dress. It was a very unusual dress for a fifteen year old going to a semiformal — a knit sheath dress with cap sleeves. At the time my mom said it was a classic and I would have it forever. I never believed it but if I can get into it — and I think I can — it will be a post here before the thirty days are up.

But this necklace, it’s subtle and pretty, and I hardly have worn it in the last 5 years because I have small kids who like to grab things. But they’re getting bigger and not so grabby anymore. I have it on with a long sleeve cashmere tee shirt and jeans. Just enough luxe to be cool.
