This one’s for my preppy friends… you know who you are. I’m speaking directly to the section of you who relates to the “stripes” side of S&S just a tad more than the “sequins” part. If navy blue is your favorite color, you live for weekends at the Cape or Hamptons, and you’ve been coveting that Lizzie Fortunato rope necklace (remember? this one) ever since it appeared on Chance, you’re in for a treat!
*Note: I bought my rope at M&J Trim. They have tons of rope in their Manhattan store… but they only seem to sell the satin cord online.
Get creative! Try making it with non-traditional materials, too. Satin rope, climbing and utility cord… or for a more colorful look, use a contrasting twine! Whatever you do… wear it proudly. I love it best paired with a striped tee, or a cozy t-shirt dress.
