Neckties + Necklaces

Awhile back, I saw this gorgeous necklace on Cherry Blossom Girl's blog; it was a heart drawn up in the way that DaVinci would have favoured. She told me the stores name Paraphernalia and its location (Etsy). Well I bought two necklaces from there and kinda of forgot about it. A month later, no necklaces. I look up the store to complain and it had been removed from Etsy!

Irrate (this was my first time buying on Etsy), I contacted the website and the old owner. Etsy couldn't help, but I located the store at it's new location and the owner promised me they would refund my money and explain what happened. Well, they never explained what happened to my necklaces but they did refund me and we both went on our merry little ways.

Then last Friday, I come home to find a small package in the mail. This was very odd because it had been exactly one month since I had purchased anything online, so I had no idea who was sending me stuff.

Turns out it was the store - they refunded me AND still shipped (eventually) my necklaces! What a swell bunch of guys - and what awesome necklaces (click to enlarge).



Necktie, anyone?



Mad Hatter


So, onto the Blog Link Exchange contest: what would you rather have as a prize? A black elastic belt with gold pyramid clips OR with silver pyramid clips? The pic below is me wearing the silver ones:


Or a set of tropical, stone-like bangles from Forever 21 (white/bone colour with pinkish ikat like designs, very tribal) don't have a pic but I promise you they are nice)?

BTW - if you are wondering about my hair in the Mad Hatter picture above, yes I got extensions over the weekend. They are fabulous, real hair and fooling everyone left and right. But more on that later!



PS - if you can't enter the contest because we are already exchanging links, not to fear! My 500th post is coming up and for that I am giving away TWO amazing dresses (one GoJane or ASOS and one Love YAYA). Please note, I am notoriously slow with shipping though lol - Amelia and CopperOranges, hold tight, they are coming!

Love the extensions. I entered the contest and I'd love for the competition prize to be the bangles (as long as they don't break in transit!) because we don't have a forever 21 over here :) xoxo

Yay I love the hair.. Im always playing with the idea of getting crazy extensions.. I personally love Lindsay Lohans, even though I know most people think theyre a bit much.

You look lovely! More photos of the new hair please =)

Underfunded Heiress said...

Wow, your extentions look great! Love the look. No problems with them? I've heard they can be damaging to the hair.

Cool tie neclace!

Couture Carrie said...

Love those necklaces! Glad you did end up finding that shop... I really hate it, when purchases don't come through.
