The necklace is from

Olive & Bettes

a great NYC boutique (sorry they don't sell online). On a recent trip to my daughter's optometrist I stopped into the UES shop. I fell in love with the necklace. It works with all the navy, gray, chocolate and black in my closet. I think the outfit came off pretty well. Though Angie liked my nails most--I had on a chocolatey-black color from Essie. And boy is she tall!
