Something New and Sparkly - In Honor of Noel and Liam

Top: Kohl's
Skirt: Necessary Objects, Annie Sez
Shoes: Not Rated, DSW
Bag: Chinese Laundry, J. C. Penney's
Necklace: The Tote Trove

The title of this post would probably make more sense if I explained that I initially planned to call this piece the Marigold Magic Corsage Necklace, on account of the jaunty yellow flower.  I couldn't help but think of Anne of Green Gables author L. M. Montgomery's other book, Magic for Marigold, and planned to title the post that way.  Satisfied that I'd knocked that one out, I rested on my laurels (er, marigolds) - until I realized that this necklace is mostly a bluish-green.  So it was back to the drawing board to come up with a new color-appropriate name.  Out popped Aqua Oasis, bringing to mind the band of bickering British brothers.  I like their music well enough (despite their bickering), so I went with it, and the Aqua Oasis Corsage Necklace was born.  Sorry, Marigold.  Better luck next time.

Thanks! I really got into these slightly more refined corsages and ended up making three similar ones.
