shooting elephants and tigers

dress - gap, necklace - ghana, shoes - pf flyers

I always feel like I'm on a safari when I wear this dress. Thought a necklace from somewhere exotic would go well, so I wore this great string of glass beads from Ghana. My grandparents gave this to me, and they got it from some relatives we have that are from Ghana. It's beautiful. The translucent red rectangles have swirls of milky white in them and it feels so cold on your neck when you first put it on. It's surprisingly heavy and I enjoy the way it does drape softly but sort of has a shape of its own. More than clothes, I have a lot of emotional connections to my jewelry.
