working in corporate america these days is rough on the nerves. i've always been thrifty but with all these cut backs i've become a full blown paranoid penny pinchin recessionista. so its been difficult to see these beautiful lace necklaces everywhere as the prices have been startling! where i appreciate the artistry and the workmanship i just can't stomach the price tag. i was so happy to find this one here for just 17 dollars. sigh it made my day.
