I made these earrings quite a while ago, from tourmalines and oxidized sterling chain. They look kinda stiff here; I assure you, they're swingy:

Hm. This outfit is a prime example of the "Gibbs' Rules of Wardrobe Development" I've been fiddling around with, off and on (#4):
  1. Never screw over your partner. This rule supersedes all other rules. (Just kidding, that is an actual Gibbs' Rule.)

  2. Never shop at Banana Republic. The lasting quality of their clothing varies wildly.

  3. If you shop at a store and walk out without buying anything, twice, reconsider the necessity of returning to that store. Time is money.

  4. The first time you wear a new item, odds are good it won't look right.

I reallllly wanted to wear this shirt today, because of its sky-blue color. But this is not the ensemble for it. The stockings came out well (was wondering if they'd appear black, but they were nicely navy), but this shirt deserves a more thought-out setting. Dunno, I'll look into it later.
