In the past I've bemoaned countless times on this blog one fashion-related accessory quite religiously: chokers.
I hate them.
Why? I think Britney Spears made me do it. That copious amount of chokers she wore (and still wears) all the time drove/drives me crazy. I mean, in the pool? At the gym? At the grocery store? Enough with the choker. Gah. Can you please wear a longer necklace? Just once?
In addition, the name kills me. Why, on earth, would I want to wear something that chokes me? I mean, let's be honest -- bras after 9 pm are bad enough as it is. I certainly don't need something that could potentially affect my breathing.
So, then I saw this.
And I thought... well... I mean... it's cute. And it's $14 here. And here's a $19 one.
I think my love for velvet trumps my disdain for chokers in this situation.
It's like rock, paper scissors and the paper (the velvet) covers the rock (the choker).
I said it.
SOME chokers are cute.
Most are not.
Many look like dog collars.
WOULD I WEAR THIS?
I *still* don't think I would. Negative. But I wouldn't say mean things about the girl who does.
**NOTE: I still hate most halters.
