Bling to Remember

I'm wearing these necklaces as a reminder to myself that I really need to get sewing on my 12th Night gown. See, I plan to wear one or both of these silver & pearl necklaces with said gown -- but the gown is currently just a half-completed black silk bodice with some silver lace attached & in need of 80 million miles of silver braid to be sewn on (by hand), plus, of course, sleeves & a skirt, & more trim on those.

The finished gown (if/when I finish it!) will be worn at an SCA event where one of my very best friends will receive a Major Award, so this is definitely an occasion worth dressing up for.

A few years back, I bought these necklaces with the intention of wearing them with a 16th-century gown because they are kind of like ones seen in paintings. But I had yet to actually make a gown that they'd go with. Until now! So yeah, I better get crackin' because that event is January 7th.

What I'm wearing:
Black & grey striped sweater, Target
Black crochet trumpet skirt, Coldwater Creek
Black tights, Calvin Klein
Black wedge mary-janes, Kenneth Cole Reaction, thrifted
Silver & pearl necklaces, Aldo Accessories
Gunmetal hoop earrings, random accessory store
Silver leather rose pin worn in hair, random accessory store
Revlon "Raisin Rage" lipstick


  1. There had better be a giant wooden crate with "Fragilé" written on it at my vigil, is all I'm sayin'.

  2. That skirt is so pretty! Very casual yet put together.

    Does this Major Award involved the soft glow of electric sex?

  3. Really like this skirt, it looks great and comfy too!
