Some Christmas Necklaces

Christmas is coming to an end.  And I hope you all agree, this does not mean the spirit of Goodwill, cheer and generosity needs to end as well:)  So now that I have done a little soap box preaching, lets talk about fashion!

I thought it appropriate to share three of my FAVORITE Goodwill necklace finds, as they happen to be RED, GREEN, and GOLD in color.

The 3 stranded red beauty- $2.99

 

I fell in love with this necklace as soon as I saw it last May of 2010.  I have cared for it lovingly ever since, and hope to for many years to come.  One of my favorite things about this necklace is that if you latch it as it is supposed to be latched, it is a short necklace.  But I found you can also have some fun with it, and not latch it and make it into a longer necklace but putting one of the strands behind your neck, and letting the other two just hang in front.

 

Charming Green pendant leaf necklace- $5.99

This green beauty has been in my posession almost as long as, but not quite, the red one.  As if the beautiful green stone weren’t enough, the whimsical little leaf falling over it definitely is!  It was love at first sight as well.  This seems to happen with me and necklaces fairly often.  If only it were as easy with men.

I have mostly worn this necklace with black tops to give it a nice pop of color on my neck area.  Here are a few examples:

You have to enlargen it to see it well…if you can get by the mustacheod facades.

This picture is also a good example of the fact that my friends and I like to sometimes pretend to have mustaches.  This is because it makes us laugh.  Whether it should or not is perhaps debatable. 

 

And this is a good example of the fact that I like to hang out with people who wear black a lot….NOT!  Actually, I work at a restaurant, and we are all required to wear black.  In general, I tend to dislike wearing the color, hence the pop of green!

And last,  but CERTAINLY not leastly- the necklace of a golden hue- $2.99

Need I say- love, love, LOVE at first sight! 

Again, this has the whimsical leaves hanging around the locket type pendant.  Unfortunately it does not open as I would have hoped, but it still inspires that vintage feel of the past that I love and crave so much in my fashion and clothing. 

Who doesn’t love a good long locket necklace?  Especially for under $5.

 

With those little tid bits of Goodwill treasures, I leave you on Christmas day.  I hope all your days were filled with as much cheer and family and/or friends as mine.  And remember in the new year, any item you buy or donate to Goodwill helps a disabled person get a job and find work that may not be able to otherwise.

 

Have a blessed night!
