Colourful beaded necklace

Is anyone else loving all the bold and colourful jewellery in stores these days? When I spotted this intricate, Native American-style (is that PC?) beaded necklace at Value Village for $9.99 I couldn't pass it up. Turns out it was the ideal piece for linking a bunch of disparate items from my wardrobe - a blue blazer, an orange skirt, and green shoes (ALL thrifted thankyouverymuch).

I have my sad face on because N and I got busted for taking pictures inside our building. Apparently that's 'not allowed'. I'd say the fact it took eight months before it dawned on them that we were up to this is the bigger problem. They didn't seem swayed with our insistence that we spend most of our time trying to crop OUT the building's identifying features. But fear not, your stubborn bloggers will find a way, if only a more discreet nook of the building. Because, baby, it's cooold outside.
