I'm super excited about my new finds! I went on a virtual shopping trip yesterday in search of the next heart stopping apparel.
First of all, I've been wanting a simple, black choker for quite some time. Not too thick, so as not to give me a stumpy neck. I love chokers! They're the only type of jewelry I'll wear for great spans of time. Strangely enough, I've had the same blue and black beaded choker since I was a teenager. The other two beautiful Gothic style chokers I once had broke long ago and I've never purchased anything since. Until yesterday...I found this black velvet choker on Etsy. Yes, I could probably make the same thing for cheap, but I have no patience for such things.
Another shopping characteristic I possess is that I always have great intentions to buy colorful clothes. I remind myself that I would like to incorporate more pink and violet into my wardrobe. Pink because it contrasts so superbly with black hair and violet because it's one of my favorite colors. But the inevitable always happens - I buy something in black. I don't do it because it's safe or because it goes with everything (although it does!), but because I truly love black. There could be a room full of the most vibrant colored clothes and my eyes would immediately zone in on the black piece. It's such a striking and dramatic color! Needless to say, I couldn't help myself when I saw this blouse. And is that not the most exquisite embroidered design on the back?!
