Instead, I wore some of the birthday presents that my mom brought me back from Australia last week:
I'm all matchy! My lovely sparkly bubble skirt with the pockets, and my super-hero tights. This skirt has no slit - I can't take big strides. Most annoying.
Flats after two days of heels - hurrah! The cuff is new from Mom, and so is the opal and silver pendant. A close-up of the pendant:
Isn't that lovely? The stone is an opal triplet, meaning it's a thin slice of opal set on a black background, with clear quartz on top of it...sort of an opal sandwich (it also means the opal is cheaper to buy). This particular slice of opal is a Lightning Ridge Black Opal (named after the town in central western New South Wales). They have a black "potch" on the back, which gives them lots of colour and sparkle.
Sweater (some brand from Hong Kong, consignment), cami (only hem showing, InWear), skirt (Kenzie Girl), shoes (Franco Sarto, consignment), cuff (gift from Mom), opal pendant (gift from Mom), white gold hoops (gift from L).
