"Black Pearl" Necklace
While on vacation in Québec last month, which happened to be mad sale season, I found this long "black pearl" necklace on clearance at Le Château Entrepôt.
I plied off the lobster claw clasp and sewed on vintage black grosgrain ribbon. My documentation for this is...
Also in Québec at Le Château I found a pair of beige linen flats.
I snipped the fabric crisis-cross bit off the toe. They're not as pointy as I'd lik, but I thought it was unique to find affordable linen shoes. I'm now hunting for the right ribbon to create the "pointe shoe" look that's seen in the print below.

I love seeing the turbans on the left.
The Bohemian Belle. I have not yet found documentation for the removable clip but they're way better than my shiny pleather flats and they're really comfy.
