i was in banana republic on black friday checking out the jewelry when a lady came by holding a beautiful tortoise shell + gold chain link necklace. i told her it was pretty and went off to look for it. i couldn't find it. next thing i knew, she was at the counter next to me asking the sales clerk if they had another one because she wanted to hook it together to make a long necklace. there was one more behind the counter (darn, i should have asked), and then the lady proceeded to hook them together and try it on. she kept humming and hawing in front of the mirror. i mean, just get it already. or give one up.
while picking up some earrings for mini-she at claire's, i found this necklace on the clearance rack with an additional 75% off. came out to $1.75 or something crazy like that.
who's the weak link now? not me.
