Cord on Beyond Paradise
Posted 31 July 2003 - 08:34 PM
We have hung the solid up so maybe with time the little grooves will go away. Hope so as it is very distracting on such a wonderful solid.
Of course to wear it a sterling chain would look better anyway. This is a solid that would look perfect with the famous little black dress(on a silver chain).
It is very elegant and light weight and looks expensive(except for that dang cord). Maybe I am just not a silk cord kind of gal. Nor do I have a little black dress.
I can also see several of these on a mirror(without that cord) with some little tea lights giving the impression of floating flowers on a romantic lake with unicorns resting on the shore.
OK, Ann's nap time.

The new closure is good and being signed inside with the fragrance , date & EL means no more lost labels. Hope they will all be this way.
Can't tolerate the fragrance- very sneezy.

I also left mine out to "hang" and looking at it now- the cord still looks pulled and not right.
I volunteer to be the test person for all solids, I would have let them know about this!
I do however love this solid, I also like the packaging with card and detail of the bead on the end of the necklace, very elegant.
It does look good with my shoes!!!!
I also like the fragrance very much, I am a Lauder junkie.
p.s- Ann & Ken,
can't wait for the photo!!!!!

I know EL thought it was a good idea to put a band on the cord to hold it in the box but did anyone at EL do a test on what it would do to silk?
Is there anyway to "iron" the silk cord??? Maybe steam the creases out. They are very deep.
I don't think the silk cords in the past were packaged this way. It seems that they were packaged in a more gentle way.
Who designed this solid ? It is so different than anything in the recent past. Very elegant and has a good feel to it (except for that dang cord).
And if you compare the amount of perfume in the "older ones" to this one you can fill about 10 of this one with the perfume from the older ones. EL rep. stated that since the collectors were not interested in the fragance they were going to use less in their solids. Boy you can say that .
This solid is still will worth the price and with a little tinkering(shorter sterling chain) will be perfect.

I have a couple of old necklaces in their original boxes and what I noticed was the box underneath the solid had some space under it and the necklace was tucked underneath it, but was still able to rest, unkinked. Perhaps they could've packaged it that way?

Great shoes and what a match!!! Love to see the dress you would wear these with!! More show and tell please.

Thank you for the wonderful pics of the shoes and necklace. They are a really a perfect compliment to each other. .... And I LOVE the blue cord accenting.
I'm sooooo jealous tho.....everybody Just LOOK at her gorgeous feet and ankles. If I tried wearing those shoes you would have to call 911 (that's an ambulance...here in Texas).
Youth and Beauty!! Wow
I am going to have that necklace......I love it!

Wow! Those shoes are very sexy!! Like from Sex and the City.
Cords are the in thing this year for necklaces. I'm partial to blue, so I think it looks great. I don't know how well it will hold up if you wear the necklace alot??
But a silver chain/necklace always looks elegant on a black dress.

Plus, if I were not put in jail, I'd probably get my heel caught in one of the strings, fall and break my neck (also the solid.)
Do they by any chance come in "flats?"
Seriously, they're just really neat!
Made my day...thanks!

This is the second time I have had to mention Lisa's shoes.
Always say a women's shoes, bag, and solid just says it all.....

I got the shoes at Nieman Marcus last call, I saw them and knew immediately I had to have them. I have not yet worn them out of the house they were waiting for the perfect solid necklace!
