Oh I do like it when you finally get a chance to wear something you bought a little while ago, but not had an opportunity to wear it yet. The chunky black necklace was bought in the Asos sale but since Christmas I haven't done many things that required dressing up (I've been in loads of layers and a coat mostly). My parents celebrated their 58th(!) wedding anniversary the other weekend so we had an informal family get together and I made a little bit of an effort (any excuse).
I ended up being a bit too warm in the end - lots of people, central heating and food cooking = overheated Catherine. It didn't stop me liking the combination of grey check trousers and pink sweater though (pink goes so well with these trooz), and of course the necklace gave it all an extra something (and bookended the black cut out shoes nicely).
So unfortunately the necklace is long since sold out, but I did see two similar chunky black necklaces you might like: a multi row bead choker necklace from Asos and a spectacular chandelier collar necklace from Nordstrom - both very reasonably priced, too.
Have you bought anything in the sales you've not yet worn? Do you ever buy a season ahead when things are super low bargain prices? I'd love to know...!
