Worn: December 11, 2013
Wearing these two tops together, with a varying bunch of other black clothing, has been one of the most important style combinations in my wardrobe in recent years, though the purple top is nearly worn out at this point. Several of the items from this post were previously worn together in one of my earliest posts. (Looking back, I feel a strong need to apologize for the shortcomings of my old camera!)
As I've said before, this necklace is made from half of a very tacky metal mesh halter top. This is, in point of fact, the other half from that which I photographed October 2nd & 23rd. I folded the edges of this one under and sewed them to a satin lining, giving it the rounded shape you see here. This is the context I expect to usually use it in, covering most, but not all, of the skin exposed by a very low neckline.
I experiment with eyeliner under my eyes occassionally, but I usually don't care for the results and give up on it for a few months. So I was rather surprised, editing this photoset, to find that it actually seems to work pretty well for me. Time to try it again, I suppose!
