Someone asked me when I wore this necklace if I knew the pearl in the middle was missing. “Yes”, I answered.
As an avid lover of thrifted clothing, I also tend to immediately zoom in on any imperfection with the items I pick up - snags, stains, missing buttons or tags. So naturally when I spotted this gorgeous vintage choker with the missing gem, I hesitated whether to buy it. Then it struck me.
Instead of the 1 missing pearl, why don’t I celebrate the fact that the other 25 are still beautifully intact? I am not perfect, so why should my outfit be? Every flaw, every imperfection often tell a story. I want to give the necklace a chance to share hers. - 1 hour ago
