I have just discovered necklace extenders much to my delight and the new life it has applied to my necklaces. The current trend to wear necklaces at the eighteen inch or twenty inches has left a lot of my fifteen and sixteen inch necklaces sitting dormant in my jewelry cupboard sobbing their little hearts out.
So I knew in theory what I needed, a necklace extender, but did such a thing exist or would I need to get one of those looped chains that hang down the back (not what I wanted). Google ... Read More
Yesterday morning droves of girls clad in their very best Holly Golightly headed to Collins St for Breakfast at Tiffany's. The doors to the newly redeveloped Tiffany & Co on Melbourne's Collins Street opened to an expectant public, offering the lure of marshmallows and mugs to a lucky few.

Why, could it be me? If not me then at least my new necklace and bracelet. While I couldn't make it to Melbourne Central last night walking home this evening I passed by the Diva in Bourke St Mall selling 3/4 of a wall at $5 and under!!!
This set I have been eying for some time now - but was never really able to justify...it's a little ladylike, a little 80's power dressing, and a little well, not my normal style.
But at $5 a piece and purchased with the lucky $20 I found in the bottom of last ... Read More
