Throw Your Diamonds in the Sky

A.Co Designs top, H&M denim, Aldo shoes (last seen here),
Swatch watch (last seen here), Bay ring & necklace & thrifted clutch

I wore this out to dinner for my Aunt's birthday on Saturday night.  Almost immediately after capturing these shots, my necklace broke.  Not impressed.  I'm hoping I can fix it with some super glue but I guess we'll see.  The kicker though, is that it's one of my more expensive (costume) jewellery pieces.  I certainly scored it at a deeply discounted price, but initially, it was pricey!  It always amazes me when my more costly items break and the cheapie stuff outlasts it.  Something is wrong with that picture.

Lastly, this top is another one of my creations, made without a pattern and I have to say, it's probably my most favourite article of clothing I've ever made (not that there are tons, but a few which you can see here, here, here, here, here & here).  I've worn it twice within two weeks (which is kind of a record for me - I really try to spread things out), like this, and once to the office tucked into a pencil skirt.  The cut is perfect for me (boatneck, cap-sleeve, long in the body, slightly a-line & low back), in my opinion, and it's comfortable.  When I saw the fabric, I had to have it.  I initially planned to make more of a tank style, but then grew ambitious and this end result was more than I hoped for.
