    A bit of a redo: the Marni necklace my way

    Wednesday, August 22nd, 2007

    As mentioned before, have been longing to diy at least one of the Marni necklaces from the F/W collection.  Today decided I would try my hand at this one:

    …but with a few alterations so as to make it super budget-friendly (read as: I’m a student so being cheap is second nature 99% of the time), and with a twist or two […]
