trend watch & learn: bib necklace!

It's true... the only way to look good right now is to wear a bib necklace. A pile of odds and ends that may have some day become the most amazing necklace of your life, have been waiting patiently, crammed into a pink plastic bag, for what feels like months. With all of my boxes finally unpacked, and the mess put away, I took it upon myself to make a new mess. Just like the ugly duckling before it, out of the hot mess emerged a thing of beauty.
