{must} wear.

the statement necklace.
if i could convince you to buy one accessory, the statement necklace would be it. i have quite a few that i love, but there are three that i wear all the time...

the first one i ever bought was from rampage about 7 years ago. i got it for $4 . confession: i used to be so embarassed that it was from rampage, that i would lie and say a friend made it for me. isn't that awful? now i'm proud of what a steal it was. it broke after a couple years, but i just took it to a bead store and had it re-strung.
the second was a wonderful surprise for my 21st birthday from my bestie, e.e. we were at a boutique and i saw it and fell in love with it. it was out of my price-range, so i left it behind. that night at my birthday dinner, she pulled out a little purple box and in it was the necklace! this is one of the most-worn items in my wardrobe. i also had this one re-strung a few years ago.
the third was a recent gift from another dear friend. it was a baby shower gift. she said i deserved something beautiful--not just quinn! isn't that thoughtful?
what i love most about the statement necklace is that you can throw on a plain white t-shirt and jeans, add the necklace, and you have a rockin' outfit. i actually referred to this in one of my very first wear posts. this is the perfect solution for any of you out there who aren't confident in putting "outfits" together. forget the outfit! just throw on an awesome necklace! here are some affordable options i found for you...

  1. I love YOUR statement pieces... SO cute and you are right, you can easily make a whole outfit with only a necklace.

    Many of the necklaces you chose are some of my favs at shopstyle too! We have very similar taste - love it!

  2. I agree, I sell Premier Jewelry and I love to show my customers how accessories make even the simplest clothes POP!

  3. I just found your blog through "Style Your Life" and love it, especially this post. You're dead right - you can totally transform an "outfit" with a great necklace! In fact, those are some of the best ones out there in my opinion! Simple but with a touch of splash :)

  4. I like the valuable information you provide in your articles.
    I'll bookmark your weblog and check again here regularly.
    I'm quite sure I'll learn a lot of new stuff right here!

    Good luck for the next!

  6. Hi! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could get
    a captcha plugin for my comment form? I'm using the same blog platform
    as yours and I'm having difficulty finding one?

    Thanks a lot!
