I opted for a slightly less grand statement for my lust have list haul.
There is still plenty of bling-factor going on with this necklace but at around $75, I can still afford to eat for the next year!
As mentioned in The Haul post a few days ago, this little dazzler came from Peep Toe Shoes at peeptoeshoes.com.au. They have great stuff at very reasonable prices and are not just about shoes as you may think by their name.
I picked this statement necklace because it did make a big statement without being ridiculous. The texture was also quite lovely and gave it a bit more interest. You would be correct in thinking that you will be seeing a lot more of this piece in the future.
For now I just thought I would show it off by putting it together with a few of the other items from my lust have list haul.
Final Statement – You’ll see more of this look on another day. The base of this look is the column dress from Alibi Online (alibionline.com.au)by Honey & Beau. BTW – I noticed this dress is now on sale for $99! The camel colour makes the perfect neutral background to show off the accessories. My vintage “croc” handbag, the really cool chain belt that came with the dress and one of the vintage scarves from the haul. The final statement comes by adding the necklace. I think it is a classy and sophisticated look. Even though it isn’t screaming for your attention, it’s definitely saying, “Look at me”!
State Your Business – I love how styling with the statement necklace on this look lifts it to “I’m the woman in charge”. It’s also cool how the ovals of the necklace play off the ovals of the shirt. The shirt was one of the items I found on Etsy.com, besides loving the colours I like the little bow at the neckline. V-vintage and v-feminine! I just randomly found the skirt at a thrift shop while looking for a denim jacket. I bought it because it’s one of my favourite colours, it was a perfect match for the shirt and the price was amazing! So a group of inexpensive pieces are given an expensive look just by adding the statement necklace. That’s smart business!
