Lace overlay

I've wanted a collar necklace for at least two years now.  The nice ones that I've seen are usually fairly extravagant with studding, pearls, or a design of some kind.  Somehow, that brings up the price of these necklaces dramatically.  I can't justify paying over 20 bucks for a piece of costume jewellery, especially one that has a good likelihood of just being a passing fad.  Finally, I was able to find one from eFoxcity for under 10 bucks.


I think that the necklace looks like it was made for this top.  And I would definitely wear the two together more often, but the top has buttons at the back of the neck.  That means I can only wear this top when someone else is helping me do up the buttons.  I might just start telling people that I'm sporting the new "trend" of unbuttoned clothes. "Uh, yeah...the top's supposed to be worn like that. I definitely did not miss the buttons at the back of my top...."


Lace high neck top from Suzy Shier / Brown shorts from Forever 21/ Black studded clutch /Collar necklace c/o eFoxcity
As a cheap clothing store, eFoxcity's got a pretty spiffy collection of men's shirts and wedding dresses too.

P.S. Last day to enter my giveaway! In fact, by the time some of you read this, it'll already be over.
