It does come in a zillion colors (and sizes, and widths — and Amazon has even more in sale colors/sizes for as low as $22), but something about the black leather/suede duo is speaking to me today.

OK: I have three thoughts with this cute $58 necklace. (I’m sick with strep (joy) so thoughts are a bit more discombobulated than usual.)

Alas, I think I’ve waited too long to do my Hunt for winter coats, as there are only lucky sizes left for everything I like.
