Thrift Inspiration, doing it the Givenchy way!

Well as I now have Diana as my beautiful statement piece, I fancied getting some low cost bling from the boot sale, as I'd been inspired by Siljes post and also the Givenchy collection too.

The look I came up with will consist of no more than these 3 chains-mainly because of the weight-I don't want to end up wearing a neck brace from having an aching neck and also I really don't want to be mistaken for Mr T from the A team, one of my favourite shows from the 80s!!

Seriously, it is a great look- I just prefer it in moderation and will wear these to jazz up a plain top, knitted dress or jumper this Autumn. The tiger pendant was 50p, the rope chain with a gold and white ball pendant was £1 and the thicker gold chain was £1 too!!

Great idea and how true about the Mr T territory. AKA Madonna a couple of weeks ago - sometimes catwalk is mean to inspire not be imitated completely. I prefer your inspired interpretation.
Mind you your thrifting has gotton me into trouble - I decided to give it a go and ended up £55 lighter - all will be revealed!
