Gloomy Vibes

It's been soon long since I've touched my macbook and actually blogged about anything. I feel like it's been a century or more. Many of you may be wondering why I haven't been updating Fashion Threadss. To tell you the truth, a lot has been going on in my life; good and bad. I went through a mild depression and that mostly affected me in such a negative away. My grandma had just passed away last week and I'm still coping with her loss. I don't usually like to share my personal life on here because I don't want to play the pity card. But hey, i'm only human too right? 

On the flip side, I'm going home to the Philippines to get away from everything for a while. A mini getaway seems to be what I really need at the moment. It's been approximately 2 years since my last trip to the homeland so I'm pretty excited to see what's in store for me this time.  

I was fortunate to team up again with Born Pretty Store. If you're just barely tuning in, BPS and I go way back in the past year when I used to incorporate their jewelry and accessories into my outfits. I've always loved how affordable their items are!! It may be hard to believe but they do have items for sale starting at $1. Crazy, right?! You can check out their website here. 

Chokers have been brought back from the 90s and is now being incorporated into today's fashion world once again. History does have a tendency to repeat itself. Don't you agree? 

In this outfit, I'm wearing their gothic black velvet heart shape necklace. This item retails for $3.09 and the pendant comes in an array of colors. I went for color #5. It does look more of a reddish color instead of the purple. It may be because of the lighting. I've linked the necklace below if you're interested in purchasing it.You can use my code BALT10 to get $$$ off their products.

I'm really digging the look on this necklace especially since it has that goth girl vibe but at the same time its has that cute feel to it. The only downside on this product is that I wish the choker was a little tighter. I feel like the length on the necklace is too long for my neck. But other than that, I still think this choker is quite a steal for the price it's listed for. 

I have 2 more products from Born Pretty Store that I'm going to style for my upcoming posts. But that'll have to wait till I come back from my trip.

Until then, see you soon!
