Five Necklaces

I’m wearing five necklaces today. For the record, I was wearing seven, but I took two off.

Beefy thought I should title this post: “Mr. T is a black man with a Mohawk.” Because that’s what I responded with when he told me I resembled Mr. T. Of course, I know it was the necklaces that drew the comparison. However, I’ll point out, once again, that I showed a great deal of restraint when accessorizing today. According to Wikipedia, it took Mr. T an hour to put on his jewelry. It took me less than a minute.

Dress, City Triangles (mistakenly identified as London Times, earlier) (swap). Belt, Mimi di N (thrifted). Necklaces, swap, Target, and Body Central. Shoes, Mossimo. Headband, self-made. Gold-tone bangle, swap. Bamboo bangles, Garden of the Gods gift shop.

This is probably my favorite outfit of anything you have ever posted. I wish I were your size and I would convince you to swap the whole thing to me. Or at least the dress... and the belt... and the shoes... okay, yeah, i want the whole thing! :D

I love that you are red again. Plus that headband you made is hella cute.

I love, love, love a necklace pile.

Why on earth did it take Mr. T an hour to put his jewelry on? That's loony.

The layered necklaces look great on you. You don't look like Mr. T at all, but maybe that is because none of the necklaces is a giant gold "T".

I love this look. But i want to kick myself everytime you wear those shoes. I seen them in the store and walked right by them trying to control that impulse buy urge. Oh well i can at least see them on you!

I've been known to wear 7 necklaces - its all about how they're layered. Most of the time, people ask me where I got my necklace (singular) but when I tell them I have 4 or 5 or 6 or 7 on, they are in disbelief. Layer it up, girl! I love it!

I believe it was Coco Chanel that said that when one accessorizes an outfit, they should put on the accessories (belt, earrings, necklace, ring, etc.) they want to wear with their outfit, but before they step out the door they should remove one piece. You did better - you removed two!

All of them look great!
