pretty baubles necklace

A few weeks ago, I made a shiny baubles necklace! . The only materials I bought for this wonderfully fun project were head pins, clasps, and jump rings. The chain I'm pretty sure came from a belt that broke. Many of the beads I salvaged from old beaded hair ties. The heart key is from a Lisa Frank diary I received many years ago as a gift, and the locket I bought from Michaels a few years back. The lone purple bead is from a broken necklace. And of course, the soda can pop top! Love 'em! It makes the necklace much more funky. So far I have worn it once, but I'm not really satisfied with the outfit I paired it with.

First of all, the horizontal stripes make my shoulders look exceedingly wide. I'm wondering if its the cut on my narrow shoulders rather than the actual stripes, though. Usually horizontal on top helps balance out my bottom half.

I paired this form-fitting striped tunic with dark purple leggings and layered a flowy black tank top over it. The tank has a cute little pocket, but it's not visible in this picture. Shoes? I wore my trusty and well-worn purple flower flip-flops that my daddy bought for me in Burma! Yup. Just wanted to share (erm, brag about) my pretty necklace!

Adios soon-to-be-amigos, Teri
