Bought for $120 – worth $1400? Really? Hi/Lo Dressing.

dievca started to write a post about an outfit she wore to dinner with friends and as she was gathering information/photos about the outfit. she found some history of a piece of jewelry she bought a couple of years ago. The information brought new meaning to the phrase “Hi/Lo Dressing”~

So, what would you do with the necklace? Keep it? Sell it? It’s only worth what you can sell it for~
What is dievca going to do? Keep it — it’s too lovely. That’s why she bought it in the first place. And Master loved seeing it draped between dievca’s breasts after coffee and peach crumble the next morning. XO

    Such a grand dress. If you like the necklace and know it will be used, why not keep it? X

      The color of the dress and style were easy to wear. People seemed to like it. Yep, keeping the necklace — who would know if I would even come close to that $ when trying to sell it…. (let’s see if the 1stDibs one sells.)

    for a change, i would wear the necklace draping down my back, so it looks like a choker in front. nice texture…i would keep it. xxx

  3. knowing what to wear the piece with is as important as what you pay/don’t pay for it… you have a beautiful sense of style. Don’t ever change! Hugs- Ret

      Ahh, Ret, I’m blushing! Thank You. Sometimes I get it right and other times? Ummm, well, ya know. We still need to meet for coffee — or maybe I will beg an invitation to sit in your italianate kitchen for a chat. XO

  4. Keep it..it now has some very special memories…and it’ll only go up in value xxxx

  5. You are becoming quite an expert – that includes the crumble! xxx
