On the Hunt for.... A Tortoise Link Necklace

I don't know why, but I have been keen on picking up a chunky, plastic-link chain necklace. Something about them is very retro, but very right, for a modern statement necklace. I have seen retro versions made with bright colors, but I am stuck on a tortoise shell pattern. The only problem I am having with this idea is finding the necklace. I have been scouring the web and although I am not ready to make the commitment to purchase yet, I did find some good possibilities....

I like this one a lot, but I want the necklace to be more like my peanut butter: chunky!

This one is cool- not tortoise- but the brass material is interesting:

This one isn't tortoise either, but I like the semi-translucent, smoky colors:

Why is my favorite the most expensive? Because that's life ;)

What do you think, should this style be best left in the past? Have you ever been on the hunt for an item you loved?


  1. I have been recently but did not have any luck in finding the right pair faux-leather over the knees boots. I do not think that I am following you on Twitter. About to do that right now.

    Thank you sweatheart for your comments. They mean a lot to me.

  2. The last one is my fave too...and of course it is the most expensive one! Story of my life.

    Hope you have a fab weekend! xo

  3. Love the style! I am always on the hunt for items of my dreams but it often doesn't work out. Hope you have better luck! :)

  4. i think it can definitely be made to look more modern!:)

  5. i think they're nice - but for a more modern twist don't go for tortoise - go for a gold or silver metal or brass one like the second picture - it will go with a lot more too. i llove gold ones and have two!! :) x

  6. Yeah garance is the best!
    I love what she makes its incredible

  7. I always seem to like the most expensive ones too ;( Typical!

  8. I always love the expensive things... What a cute necklace!
