C is for Chloë: an Etsy story
I'm not even going to pretend that I have a good reason for being so absent from my blog. I just suck. Sorry. Hopefully pretty jewelry distracts you from my poor blogging initiative.
I've been on a major Etsy kick lately, and I thought I'd show you all some of the lovely bits and bobs I've purchased, starting with this lovely initial necklace from a shop called Little Glamour. I had been wanting an initial necklace for ages, and I finally found one I liked with a dainty enough chain. It's always difficult to tell online, and I was so worried that I would end up with a big ol' chain and a little letter charm. This might actually be a majorly irrational worry. But obviously Elizabeth from Little Glamour gets me. This necklace is perfection.
In case you haven't known me long enough (or have only followed this blog and not my Youtube) I'm a major fan of dainty and minimalist jewelry. That's not to say I won't throw a statement necklace or bracelet in there every so often, because I totally do, but my mainstays are all classic pieces. This "C" necklace fits beautifully with my style and my other pieces.
As for the shopping experience, I have zero complaints and all praise! I received a message the same day I ordered it with an estimate as to when it would be ready to ship out, and indeed it was ready then! And it arrived 2 days later! Of course, it helps that I live in the same province as the seller, but fast shipping is always a major win and I can be rather impatient. I'm looking at you, two Etsy orders that have yet to arrive...

I also purchased an initial necklace from another shop for my friend's birthday. It hasn't arrived yet (grumble) (missed her birthday), but I'm curious to see whether there's a big difference between the pieces.

Until next time, I'll be waiting patiently by my mailbox :) Also, I hope you all don't mind that I'm turning this blog into more of an "everything" blog. Chloë does indeed blog beauty, but I'd also like to blog fashion and maybe some food-related things. And dogs. Always dogs.
