Chokers: How Old is Too Old?

How old is too old to wear a choker? Is there such a thing? And, scariest of all: Am I too old to wear a choker?


I couldn’t pass up these cute little choker sets at Family Dollar. Only $3! Each set even came with three pairs of earrings!

So, yesterday, I tried on the choker and I loved how it completed my look.

But, now, I’m kind of living with choker regret. You guys, how old is too old to wear a choker? Is there such a thing? And, scariest of all: Am I too old to wear a choker? This is my first choker (since they came back in style). I’m 30 years old and I’m wondering if I missed the mark? Sure, my 12 year old self looked super cute wearing this black, plastic braided choker. Remember these?


Ah, nostalgia.

Then there’s this choker I found online at Forever 21. It’s right under $7 and they are having a Labor Day sale today! I’m itching to buy it.


So, before I spend the $7, I want to know: What do you guys think? Is there an age limit on chokers?

The Journal That Started it All

I ran into my local Family Dollar store for toilet paper and came out with much more.

Have you ever stopped to look around the Family Dollar? There are seriously cute things in that store. I figured it was just a fluke the first time I walked out with an arm full of goodies. The Family Dollar was probably just having an extraordinarily good day, right? But then I went back. And back. And back again. And I continued to be pleasantly surprised.

I realized that most days at the Family Dollar are good days and, if you have the time and the eye, you can find really amazing things there. So, that’s where I come in. I’m here to be your eyes!

The shirt is a large and was also available at my FD store in olive green. I am 5’6 and I weigh 145lbs. Large fits fine, but I like my shirts to fit on the flowy side so I would have preferred an XL. The peekaboo shoulder is feminine and fun. The cut out is, thankfully, in a place that allows you to wear a bra without worrying that the straps will show (which is essential for us busty gals!). The shirt was $8, the journal $5 and the shoes were on clearance for $4.
