I’m loving the color block trend and the chain trend in fashion right now….
after seeing this necklace at JCrew, I knew I wanted to try and make my own knockoff!
I saw this necklace at JCrew the other day and thought it was SUPER CUTE, but to spend $40 on something I’d probably just wear a handful of times seemed, just not worth it. Then, I got to thinking, I’ve seen chains like that for cheap! Yep, at Home Depot.
The picture above makes it look like the home depot chain is heavy and thick…not really…it’s comfy…not any heavier than the original necklace at JCrew! For $3ish, I bought plenty of chain. With pliers, my Stud connected the chain. A spray of primer, a coat of pink spray paint and then using some paper loosely wrapped around the chain so half the chain stayed pink, I sprayed some gray paint on half of the chain to give the two-toned look. Topped with a gloss spray paint and left alone for TWO DAYS! And without further adieu….
And there you have it….a JCrew knockoff necklace. The durability is pretty good, I won’t say AWESOME. Where the chains rub together a speck or two of paint has scratched, but definitely you would need a macro zoom to see them. And by the time this seasons up and this necklace is way out, the $3 will definitely be the perfect investment! Speaking of cuteness…I’m LOVING these outfit inspiration pictures below! I’m totally needing a little Spring shopping! And with the blessing of a new job
for my Stud, I’m seeing a shopping trip for me coming sooner than later! Wow! Don’t pinch me, I like where I’m at!!!
Recognize this picture where I showed off my ‘Smile Lines’? Yep, I’m giving a new skin care kit a try, here
