Is that vintage?

A couple of weeks ago, I purchased this necklace:

There's a story with this necklace. Curious?

Last night I stopped at Whole Foods after work to grab a couple of things for dinner with Boy. The female employee at the cash register said, "I really like your necklace. Is it vintage?"

I smiled and had to bite my tongue a little to keep from laughing. The first thing that popped into my head when she said that was "Harvard Sailing Team + Hipster." I thanked her sincerely and said, "No. I just bought it at the mall a couple weeks ago."

If you haven't see this Harvard Sailing Team episode, watch it now. I hope you chuckle like I did when you hit minute 2:50.(I suggest watching the whole clip, but for the sake of Grandma's fashion and vintage necklaces, definitely watch through 2:47.)



  1. I love how you just refer to him as "Boy". I love it because that's how I refer to him, too. :)

  2. Hahah oh my gosh- funny story and funny video!

  3. Helllloooooo Random! Too funny. :)

  4. My response is usually "No, it's from Target." Because it usually is.

  5. That video is awesome! My favorite part is at 3:53 where one of the guys starts cooing like a pigeon. Thanks for sharing!

  6. HHHHHHHHHHHAaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! I did not know about harvard sailing team, but you have enlightened me. So glad I watched that video and got some funnies. It reminds me of Portlandia (and Portland itself).

  7. i was at an antique store once, and an 80-yr old lady asked me if my necklace was vintage... so adorable.

    hilarious video :)
