Making a Statement

Wednesday, August 29, 2012 134 0

Necklace: BCBG. Top and Skirt: Club Monaco (old). Shoes: Joan & David via Nordstrom (new). Handbag: Marc by Marc Jacobs Classic Q Karlie Bag. Watch: Michael KorsRings: Ann Taylor, Kate Spade. Bracelets: Henri Bendel bangle, BCBG links. Sunglasses: Chanel.

 

When I read that Marionberry Style’s August Trend of the Month Challenge was statement necklaces, I knew that I just had to participate.  I LOVE statement jewellery, especially necklaces.  I own many, and I’m always looking for more.  A statement necklace can really take an average outfit to the next level, and turn it into something spectacular.  To see how other fabulous bloggers styled their statement necklaces, check out Marion’s blog.

    What a gorgeous necklace Jenny! I definitely have this CM skirt too and it is such a great neutral piece, love the way you kept the colours neutral and went all out on the shoes and necklace. That bag is so classic as well 🙂

      Totally agree, leopard is definitely my go-to print for Fall. It really does look great with everything!

  • Libby

    This look is so cool! Classic top and skirt with punches of extra interest–like the leopard pumps, necklace that definitely makes the right statement, and cool arm candy. Love it all!

    Couldn’t agree more Jenny. Pop a statement necklace with a plain white tee and some jeans and heels and you have a completely different look.
