Old Friends & New
This is a relatively new addition to my family of weird jewelry. Sometimes I space out and stare at it mindlessly when I'm at my desk. Yesterday I introduced the necklace to some old friends of mine:
Sweater,vintage (label "Katherine H")
Basic tank, Sola
Denim pencil skirt, Level 99/Anthropologie
The cardigan and shoes have been in my closet for years, and they won't be retiring anytime soon. The sweater was a gift from a friend on a chilly day. I had forgotten a jacket, and I remember putting it on immediately and going "Ahhhh...."! Despite the open knit sleeves, it's super warm and cozy, and the nude/rust color goes with everything.
The shoes were an accidental discovery at H&M, while in Chicago to visit my brother 5 years ago. They were on a shelf, all alone and a size too small according to the tag. I searched high and low for more pairs, thinking that perhaps a customer had picked them up from somewhere else and changed her mind. None were found. Oh well, I thought. Maybe the pair I found wouldn't be noticeably tight--maybe I could get away with it.
Well? Turns out H&M's size 7 is Lisa's size 8. The End!
