I'm not usually a frilly girl. I like clean lines, classic colors, and I look like an idiot in lots of ruffles.
But I looooooooove the necklaces from Anthropolgie. Love them. I have nothing in my closet with which I could actually wear one, and I would probably break it within 24 hours. I'm kind of Jojo the idiot circus freak with a pretty new pet when it comes to jewelry. (Bonus points if you got the Tommy Boy reference.)
I have seen lots of beautiful Anthro knockoffs on the webs, so I thought I would give it a try. I'm all about trying things that I have no idea how to do.
Look at this pretty:
I bought some cool ribbon at the thrift store. It's like organza or tulle, but not quite organza or tulle. Anywhozits, I made this pretty flower using it.
Not a bad start, if I do say so myself. Now to just add a strand of fake pearls, and some more ribbon since the pearls aren't long enough. Tie it off in the back and... VOILA!
BWAHAHAHAHA! What a lovely flower-shaped goiter you have, Miss.
Um, no. Not *quite* the same as the original. Yikes. I'm going to save the flower because I think it has potential. Maybe on a plain shirt, or a scarf perhaps? Just not this. No. Not this.
