How I Fell In Love With Pearls Again (Or I Shopped at a Hoochie Store)

 
 
I found this DIY pearl cluster necklace at My Girlish Whims through a blog hop a while back, and just thought it was so beautiful. She put a lot of time and effort into making this...and I don't know if you've ever tried to use eye-pins while making jewelry, but I didn't find it to be very easy at all when I tried it. So even though I love this necklace, and even thought I wanted to believe I'd be able to make it, there was little voice whispering in the back of my mind that I'd probably never get it done.
 
Sad face.
 
Then I walked into Body Central during a mall trip. You know Body Central, right? It's one of those stores that I like to call "hoochie stores," because if you want to find something hoochie to wear, it's a one-stop shop. That's my personal opinion; don't hate me. But the great thing about those kinds of stores is that their accessories are usually on-trend and super-affordable.
 
And that's where I found this little gem:
 
 
Now it's not exact, I realize that; but for $3.90, I'll take "not exact."
 
My plan is to layer it like this:

  1. "Not exact" but pretty darn close! And I agree about Body Central, but I may have to start checking out their jewelry =)

  2. I clicked through because the whole 'hoochie store' thing cracked me up. ;) I have shopped for shoes and jewelry in there, but their clothes are scary, if you ask me. ;) Of course I am probably a decade out of their target audience so I guess that's ok. Can't wait to see how you layer the necklace - it was a great find!
