Working Around the Ruffles

I haven't worn this ruffle front top very often, but when I was reviewing it to potentially give away, I noticed a faint resemblance between the ruffles on the front of the top and those along the edges of my Eyeshadow wrap. And so I came to pair them together.

I feel that the neckline of the ruffle front top is a bit lacking, so I wanted to fill it in with a necklace. As you can see from the previous time I wore it on the blog, the necklace has a simple triangular shape. For this occasion, I tucked the edges inside the neckline of my top, then bloused the necklace to make a rounded outline. The effect is not entirely stable, as you can see in the last photo, where the edges have fallen free. But I liked the effect enough that I sewed another piece of black metal mesh into the same folded, rounded shape to make a new necklace.
