We where down in Puerto Vallarta Mexico a few week ago. I came across a lovely dress shop. Wish I had had more money with me. They where selling gorgeous all cotton clothes and the prices where a lot less than here in California. And the styles where adorable. It gets so hot here in California in the summer 100% cotton is a must.
I fell in love with this apple green dress with a high low hem. I can wear it by itself in the warmer months and with leggings as the days get cooler.
Well, when I got home I realized I had no jewelry to where with it. I know it is hard to believe since I make jewelry and have tons of pieces. But no, nothing that looked good with this dress, which is hard to believe also since I went crazy when I saw this color. Anyway, while making a visit to my local Michael's store the other day I spotted this long beaded tassel necklace on sale. I was sure the color would be perfect. Yeah, I was right. But it looked too plain so I cruised up and down the aisles to see just what I could find to add on to this piece.
I found the perfect set of charms and luckily they where on sale, too. Without the charms the tassel would have been lost in a sea of apple green. Can you believe the color match? The necklace and dress look like they where custom dyed to match. That's amazing to me.
They added a nice touch to the tassel.
And to my apple green dress.
