I bought this gold necklace at my absolute favorite thrift store, Value Village about 7 years ago. It cost about $7, and it was probably the best $7 I have ever spent. It instantly dresses up any outfit. People are always complimenting me on it, and no one would ever guess that it was so inexpensive. I wear it year round, it just doesn't go out of style. For me, it's like a classic Chanel bag. It will forever be in fashion.
