Necklace from Tarnish in Chicago


This necklace is from Tarnish in Chicago.

I started the "add to your wardrobe when you travel" trend when I went to Guatemala in 2008. The purchase of a darling white-trimmed-in-red maxi dress was a lovely experience. Every time I put it on I'm transported in time and space to that trip.
