Curb chain

Thankfifi in French Connection lace skirt-7

I have my reservations about black and gold.  Or rather, too much black and gold.  I think the loose fit of the jumper and the soft girliness of the lace skirt let the black and gold accessories do their thing though without giving ‘that’ look.  And by ‘that’ I mean tacky.  I’ve had this curb chain for a while now (a while in Thankfifi time is just over a month) and, in spite of it being reminiscent of one which floated atop the impressive chest hair of a boyfriend circa 2001, I really like it.  It’s a cheapie yes, but it’s weighty and golden and manly.  Manly enough to demand being paired with pale pink lace.  What do you think?

    Yup, agreed. Great chain. I have a similar one found in a thrift shop but it’s long and with a bit of silver in it too. I have, however, yet to find a way to wear it without looking a bit like Mr T…

    Love this look! Just my type of style. Comfortable, too. “Perfect”!! And Mr. K. looks well-rested. You always have such wonderful background(s) in your photos.

    Oh I know what you mean by black and gold but I think you did a wonderful job! I love how you added the pink lace, it’s unexpected and softens the whole look.
