Good morning my beautiful YLFers!
Today's outfit was chosen to showcase the beautiful necklace my husband and son gave me for my birthday. Without my knowing, they met about a month ago with a local artisan and designed a silver necklace for my birthday gift. They wanted an open pendant so my skin could show through and it wouldn't look too heavy on me. It is one continuous piece to represent the continuity of life and the coolest part? It is hammered exactly 50 times, one for each year of my life. The light catches the little hammered "dents" beautifully and makes the piece almost sparkly. I absolutely love it and the meaning behind it.
I've shown the necklace with my black sheath dress, topped with my purple Amber Sun jacket. I've added black micro fishnets and my short black wedge booties for footwear. My grey faux snakeskin clutch completes the look.
What do you think? As always, all comments/suggestions welcome.
P.S. I had to show you the card my Mother sent me showing a little girl in a pink frilly lace dress. It reminded her of a dress that my grandmother had given me for my second birthday - little did she know, I still had that pink lace dress - here's a picture of the card with the dress. I thought it was so sweet.
