Don't Quit, Accessorise!

"I admit it's tempting to wish for the perfect boss, the perfect parent, or the perfect outfit. But maybe the best any of us can do is not quit, play the hand we've been dealt, and accessorise what we've got."
~ Carrie Bradshaw (Sex and the City)

In the spirit of accessorising (and of course, to see the brighter side of things), I decided it was time to go shopping.

I nearly screamed when I accidentally came across the kind of necklaces I've been looking for for a really long time. Those big round bead necklaces.

Come to think of it, they actually look like those necklaces on the Marge and Lisa Simpson. Ha!

A friend later reminded me that they look like Wilma's necklace as well.

They come in 8 colours. White, black, turquoise, lime green, pink, orange, yellow, and red.

I love all of them. But it would be crazy to buy all of them since accessories in Australia are seriously overpriced. (Can't say I wasn't tempted though.)

After much consideration (actually it was after Bee pointed out that they most probably will be out of fashion in a few months time or I might get bored of them after wearing them for a couple of times, whichever comes sooner), I reluctantly decided to only get 3 colours - white, turquoise and orange.

To compensate myself for not getting the rest, I grabbed a gorgeous long chain pearl necklace. Haha.

I felt bad. I did. For paying that much money for something that probably only cost a few bucks to make them in China. But I figured, at least they will come in handy when I need to dress up for the next Halloween or a costume party.

Wilma sounds like a much hotter idea than Lisa or Marge, doesn't it? :)

may be a good idea to buy strings of beads/pearls (whatever tickles your fancy) and make the necklaces yourself. heard lots of cheap ones on sale on Ebay Aussie.

Eternity: I suck at crafts and I lack the patience. I do much better at buying them. Haha. But thanks for the suggestion, darl. :)
