A Twist on a Classic: Chanel Black Pearl Necklace

Compared to last year's birthday splurge, this year's was a little (okay maybe a lot) more extravagant. However, my birthday this year just so happens to coincide with a number of other important life events... namely, officially being called to the Bar and starting a new job. So let's just say it's justified ;)

I stumbled upon this Chanel black pearl necklace when I had originally gone into the boutique to look at some classic white pearls. Once I tried it on, I knew that I'd be walking out with this one instead. It's just more me.

  2. Wow! Happy birthday, congratulations on the bar, getting a new job and your absolutely gorgeous necklace! I've always wanted a black pearl Chanel since I saw it on 'Devil Wears Prada' =3 please model it :) I'm sure it looks amazing on you! If you don't mind me asking, how much was it?

    1. I've been wearing it basically everyday so it will definitely be showing up in some future outfit posts. It was $1350 CAD (plus tax).

  15. What an amazing birthday present you gave yourself! I'm on a bit more of a budget this year so I haven't quite decided what I want to get myself for my birthday... but alas, unless it's vintage (and somehow deeply discounted), it won't be Chanel. I'll just have to live vicariously through you!

  20. The necklace is beautiful and so different from the classic white pearls. You deserve the extra extravagant birthday gift after being called to the Bar and getting a new job...AND relocating to Calgary. Totally justified :)
