Wanted: Red Necklace

I've been pining for this blazer from J.Crew:
Maritime-stripe blazer
Unfortuantely my friends, it is $118. For Pete's sake I'm a teacher! Well, the good news is I found something pretty similar at Forever 21 (even though I always feel lame going in there...cuz I haven't been 21 for awhile). It was only $22, so I dealt with all the "aren't you too old to be in here?" looks.
I really needed a red necklace to wear with it though. I looked everywhere and couldn't find what I wanted. Then, I stumbled upon this cheapo necklace at Wal-mart for $3. It was one long, single strand with red beads. I grabbed a chain from Michaels, some little metal rings, a clasp and my plyers.
The necklace got folded up twice. I used the chain to loop around the gathered ends of my red necklace and attached one link to the other to hold it in place. After that all I had to do was add my clasp.
Super simple and cheap at $10! Here it is with my $22 blazer! A skinny gold belt and some wedges (oh..and pants) and I'll be ready to go!
