Quirky Things: A Girl and Her Bicycle

Anthropologie Ten-Speed Necklace
Anna and Frank silk green shirt (thrifted)
Dockers Pants (thrifted)
The Heritage Cardigan Lands End Canvas Harvest Pine
Cole Haan suede penny loafers

It's funny. When I first saw this necklace at Anthropologie, I thought I'd look like a crazy/eccentric old lady wearing it. But, because it was on sale, and made of some neat materials (leather + wood), I brought it home anyway. I figured I could return it if I never wore it or changed my mind.

Ok, so call me a crazy/eccentric old lady! Turns out, I kinda LOVE wearing it. It can give just a fun amount of quirk to my outfit. I also like it's really long length. And, it always seems to garner compliments.

Is there anything you've ever bought that you were first iffy about and then later you liked so much it surprised you?

I bought a necklace from Anthro over the holidays when it was on sale and they had their extra % off deal. I never noticed it on their web site and it is a jumble of gold chain, squared off rocks, dangly jewels and other assorted items. It is so random but I bought it and wore it all through the holidays - I adore it!

@Lisa nice! I admit, I often don't notice the Anthro jewelry till I'm browsing the sale racks near the register (or unless I catch some gorg pieces on other bloggers ;) ). So anthro jewelry always ends up being a lovely surprise to me.

@Lizzie Thanks! :)

It's so nice to know you're wearing something totally different than what everyone else is. I've definitely picked up garments as a joke and then ended up loving it and incorporating regularly in my wardrobe!

@designnstyle thanks so much! As long as people don't actually want to talk about bicycles - which I know nothing about!

@ThriftedShift That's also why I like thrifting! Because I can find clothes that fit the current trend, but weren't just bought by 23409380234 ladies from the Gap or Macy's, etc :)
