Help Me Decide: Mother-of-Pearl Hibiscus Necklace: Hot or Not?

Photobucket

One of my fave eBay searches involves bib necklaces but I'm really on the fence about this one. Part of me thinks the soft pastel colors and feminine beads make it the perfect finishing touch to some girly/bohemian/sophisticate outfit, while the other part of me thinks I'm a step away from Mrs. Roper's muu-muus and curly mop wigs.

Please help me decide, this vintage bib necklace: hot or not?

Screams old lady to me rather than vintage. Take a pass.

I can't appeal to it, simply because it's too girly for me. But that aside, I think it would be beautiful on the right person. I think you should give it a go!

If you wear it with confidence than it would look fabulous with a simple outfit, all white or black. The key is confidence!
Great blog

It could be really a fun piece with simple clothes!

It'll only go "old lady" if you let the clothes go "old lady." Keep it hip and edgy with your outfit.

All you have to do is work it! Be confident, and try not to pair it with a pastel pantsuit and I'm sure you'll be fine. It's really pretty!

I agree with enc and Cammila.

I think it's lovely, but I have a soft spot for unique vintage jewelery <3

I have a very similar necklace. It does have an old lady vibe, so I have to either go with that or try and make it seem younger.

I like it! I'd wear it with a faded old Neil Young tee shirt and denim mini.

I think that it's best left for the moment.. Looks too prim for the current goth/grunge trends

It depends on what you wear it with. But I vote for Hot, because I love a good vintage find. Blessings, Whitney
