90's Girls Rejoice

If you were a real 90's girl, you probably wore a choker necklace at some point. And that is nothing to be ashamed of. Despite the semi-violent name, the necklaces were pretty common and, dare I say, cool during the late 90s and early 2000s. I have a pretty vivid memory of a picture of me and some other girls at someone's sixth birthday party and most of us were struggling to breathe wearing these necklaces. And just a thought: we should collectively come up with a better name for these necklaces, like neck huggers or neck buddies, basically something that isn't inherently awful.

Yesterday, I popped into a vintage shop here in Toledo. They had a solid selection of skirts, but they were priced at about 35 euros and up and ya girl wasn't about that life. But, I did find something else...

Ooooooooohhh yaaaaaaa. Y'all should have seen me snatch this thing off of the little jewelry holder thing. Tried it on and immediately said, "I'm buying this." I had no idea how much it cost, but it was one of those pieces that I knew I had to have. I ended up purchasing it for a solid 9 euros.


The colors are literally everything. And not to be a super douche, but I knew it would look dope af against my skin.


In an attempt to make sure my necklace was the most interesting thing I was wearing, I wore a navy Madewell maxi skirt, white F21 crop top, and white Birkenstocks. Seriously, these white Birkenstocks are life. I went on a hunt for them over the summer and have been living in them ever since. So comfy. I be on my granola grind sometimes.


This necklace is definitely one of the coolest things I've bought in a while just because it's so unlike anything else I have. And it brings up memories of childhood *sheds one tear*. Nah, but actually, it's such a fun piece. It's the grown-up version of the stretchy, oddly patterned chokers of yesteryear. Ya feel meh?
