My Gift to Myself!!!!

You know how something on first sight can just take your breath away and make you say "Oh I love THAT!"? Then you just keep staring at it for days and tell yourself you NEED that or just can't live without it? Then you try to justify WHY you need that?! Then finally you purchase it telling yourself that its really not that much! Well this was exactly my reaction when I was browsing around on Etsy and accidently came across this acrylic laser cut necklace called "Whatever Lola Wants", and boy was I glad! It really was not a whole lot to spend on something this beautiful and unique. It was rather quite reasonable at $22.00 for a piece of neck art! So I have been anxiously awaiting its arrival and today I opened up my mailbox to see the big old box sitting there screaming at me...."open me, open me!" I rushed my package home, laid it down gently on the table and than just tore it open. There in front of me was my gift to myself for being a good girl! We all need to gift ourselves ever once in awhile don't we? Anyhow I took it out and the first thing I noticed was its craftsmanship. I can't believe someone made this! I would have paid double the price for it! The only problem I do have with it is now I need to go find the right top to wear it with! I think a cute little ruffled top might do the trick....think I need to gift myself AGAIN for not spending too much money the first time around...lol! If you've been a good girl and think you need to reward yourself than make your way over here to Untamed Menagerie's shop on Etsy. I promise you won't be disappointed!

That is a truly amazing object. I think you should wear it with something plain - a nice warm-coloured turtle-kneck or plain white shirt maybe - to show it off as much as possible!
Etsy is a wonderful place...

@Lizzie....thanks for the ideas. I was also thinking like a white Greek inspired sort of dress. You know the kind with speghatti straps?

It's stunning. I haven't seen anything like this, so it's definitely unique. Congrats and best wishes in finding a perfect match to it:)
