Silver Strands

Crazy Style Love

J.Crew Blythe Blouse, Balenciaga City

J.Crew Blythe Blouse, Wilfred Metallic Skirt

J.Crew Blythe Blouse, Balenciaga City, Kate Spade Polka Dot Mesh Heels

Balenciaga City, Kate Spade Mesh Polka Dot Heels

Top: J.Crew (on sale!). Skirt: Wilfred – last seen here. Shoes: Kate Spade (similar with bows!). Handbag: Balenciaga. Necklace: The Bay. Ring: Stella & Dot. Sunglasses: Chanel.

 

Every time I wear this necklace, I get a ton of comments on it.  Some are positive, usually from women.  Others, not so much.  I get a lot of those “wow, look at that necklace”, or “that’s some necklace” comments that I’m pretty sure are not meant to be compliments.  I can’t tell you how many “Mr. T” and “I pity the fool” remarks I’ve received, mostly from men (including my Man, over and over and over again).

 

Well, I love this necklace, and it always makes me feel ultra glam.  I wore this outfit to work last week, then out to an event.  Tomorrow I’ll share the details of the event I attended, but until then, I hope you all have  a wonderful Tuesday!

      Thanks so much Alyssa! I love the shape of this skirt too. However, I do wish it was 1 or 2 inches longer. Oh well. 🙂

    Haha! I laughed at this only bc I incessantly get comments and looks about my outfits as if I had a third leg. And actually my post yesterday wearing glitter shoes, I talked about those comments!

    The necklace & skirt is just gorgeous on this outfit Jenny! Whenever I wear a bold piece of clothing, my man always makes a comment too (and they are not compliments either).

    Hi there! I randomly stumbled across your blog from a sidebar ad on Shanna’s blog. Of course I went straight to your about page to get a little more info. 1). I too, live by the Carrie quote “I like my clothes where I can see them…I actually have a pic with the quote pinned on a pinterest board aptly titled “words to live by”. 2). I pretty much like all the things that you listed, and mad respect that Pride and Prejudice was listed so high up ( I own the DVD mini-series and watch it every Holiday). Ok, I’ll end this long winded comment now.
    Love the blog and following along on bloglovin.

    I love the necklace! It reminds me of the Chanel Jennifer Aniston was just photographed out and a bout in a million long, silver necklaces. Long and layered is totally hot.

    • Jenny
      June 7, 2013

      Surprisingly, I don’t know what outfit that is of Jennifer Aniston’s. I totally need to look that up. Thanks Ash!
