Stormy Weather

Today was a pretty happy day, made so mostly by the fact that I finally have a pretty close version of the Stormy Sea in my possession.
The Stormy Sea Obsession has been going on for a long time now. Since I first saw it on April 17th, 2009. And If I had a time machine, I'd probably go back to that day, grab myself by the shoulders and say "Save yourself from years of aggravation, buy the damn necklace!"
You might think that if I had a time machine, it would be a waste to use it on something so insignificant, but really, it's not a good idea to go back in time and start fussing with the big events in your life.

So, jump ahead to last week, when Suze of Miss Vinyl Ahoy suddenly has her self a brand new pink Stormy Sea, that she got from Kie & Kate Couture, and the need that I'd been working so hard to repress resurfaced. A half a dozen emails later and guess what was in my mail box this morning?

It's not quite the same as the original, the beads are opaque and not translucent, the spacers are silver and not bronze and the tie is green and not grey. But still, it looks like a Stormy Sea. I'll take it. And wear it. A lot. Fair warning.

Yesterday I mentioned that it was raining, and today it was raining again. And just look at the forecast for the rest of the week:
Fantastic. I've officially reached the point in this spring where I am over outfit photos in the rain. Over them. See this face? This the face of a girl who has had enough.

I'm going to keep my bright coral fingers crossed and hope that the weather men are wrong. They usually are, anyway.

PS. I know there are only about .5 people who read this blog who will have any idea what I'm talking about, but wasn't the season finally of Chuck amazing?! And aren't you pretty ecstatic that it was the season finally and not the series? Can't wait for next Fall!

Ashley said...

Ah. I'm not one of the cool kids so I have no idea what you're talking about. Oh well! The necklace is cute, and so is the rest of your outfit. I especially like the jeans...I need some more flare-y pairs in my wardrobe. Also, I think I have those sandals in orange. They're fab.

Love the necklace and the braid!!

Rebecca said...

It looks great, and I wouldn't have noticed the differences between the two necklaces if you hadn't pointed them out.

Danielle said...

Fabulous necklace!

I've had enough of the rain too.

The Fancy Teacup said...

I think the necklace looks like an exact replica, it's a beautiful statement piece! I hope the rain goes away for you soon!

much love.

Val Fox said...

Love the top and the necklace and the coral nails too!
(Send the rain down to Texas, we need it!)


Tierney said...

That necklace is hot.

So, is that all it takes? A flurry of emails and I can have one too?! :)

Courtney Erin said...

Boo for the rain - I stayed in all day today and yesterday and felt sorry for myself! I absolutely adore that necklace - it's such a great statement piece.

Alex Elizabeth said...

You have a twitter? I'm an idiot... just... never mind hahaha.

I like this version of the necklace a lot! It seems like a slightly more casual update on the original. I'm pretty sure it's going to have rained for 10+ days by the time this storm is through. Indoor photos. I might start taking some at work :P

Shey said...

Oh my goodness it is a dream come true. And you have the weather to match which may or may not be exciting?


Marie McGrath (The Joy of Fashion) said...

Your new necklace looks fantastic on you! I can't wait to see all the different ways in which you wear it. Sorry the weather has been so drab, I sure hope the weather man is wrong :)


LikeSpinningPlates said...

ahhh that necklace is the cutest thing!! So pretty and such a great color. I love how it matches your shoes.

Marusya V said...

Love the boldness and mint color of your necklace. I am hopeless when consider choosing accessories - always want to much and at the end buy nothing :]

Oh my goodsness, I am loving the Kie&Kate! Your outfit is perfect! And the Anthropologie windows...heaven! They were having a silent auction at my local Anthro last night for their previous merchandising display pieces. Very cool.

Speaking of Anthro, just want to shout out that I am hosting a $30 giveaway for an Anthro GC on my blog! Thanks for entering! :)

Amber Blue Bird said...

that weather forecast makes me wanna cry, who can deal with rain for a solid week? Its inhuman.

Amber Blue Bird said...

I got so caught up in my hatred of the rain that I forgot to tell you how awesome your necklace is :)

Jenn Giles said...

Hey, if you have to endure the storms, at least you have a "stormy" seas necklace to wear. :) (Sorry, that was lame.) Love the necklace -- you wear it so well! Can't wait to see other ways you style it!

eek said...

So pretty! I love today's look.

jenna said...

ahhh i love that necklace--i own it in black!

i found your blog through your comment on Fashion Indie Love Affair's ring. i'm the designer and wanted to say thank you for your lovely feedback.

following following, xx

Shea said...

I think the version you got is beautiful!! I like it with the silver spacers--it brings out the coolness of the blue. I love how you styled it too, especially the peek of green shoes!

Jess said...

This version of the necklace is awesome! I might need to get one. I am over the rain as well. How do you take outfit pictures in the rain without risking your camera? I am not a camera expert so forgivce me for the silly question.

Kavery said...

I have seen that neckpiece on a couple of other bloggeers but I like your version too. And yes, the weather men are frequently wrong. We were supposed to have rain all week but the sun's been out for most of every day - yipee!

DaniellaBella said...

I want to swim inside that necklace! It's stunning! Hopefully it's loveliness helps to brighten the rainy days!
