Statement Necklaces Under $50


Lately, I’ve been feeling like something is missing from my wardrobe and I soon realized it was a supply of statement necklaces.  Statement jewelry is not only all the rage, they’re also a great wardrobe investment that can add a personal flare to any outfit.  But, they don’t have to be an investment at all.  Though many dazzling statement pieces retail in the $400-$600 range, there are plenty of adorable statement pieces for under $50 and even as low as under $20.  They’re perfect to wear to a job interview or important meeting as a stylish way to be remembered.  Here are some of my favorite statement necklaces all for under $50:

1. Pink & Orange Stone Charm Statement Necklace ($16.00) 2. 2b Store Cinderella Statement Necklace ($16.95) 3. Natasha Faceted Round Statement Necklace ($38.00) 4. ASOS Spring Stone Necklace ($42.39) 5. Sabine Flower Cabachon Statement Necklace on Piperlime ($42.00) 6. Alfani Gold-Tone Glass Teardrop Statement Necklace ($18.99)

Affordable Holiday Ensembles

In my world, tightening your belt means going on a relaxing diet cleanse at a faraway spa and coming back 10 pounds lighter. But, in the real world where I currently reside, it means trying to do more with less which is often necessary, but never fun. In honor of the hardest time of the year to save money, I’ve put together two amazing holiday ensembles complete with accessories for those upcoming holiday parties.

1.  Dorothy Perkins Black Embellished Shift Dress:  This dress only looks expensive.  Dorothy Perkins has an amazing selection of affordable holiday dresses.

2.  Sabine Black Deco Ring: Make an affordable statement with this fabulous black and gold cocktail ring.

3.  Nine West Gold Peep Toe Pumps: These statement shoes will go perfect with your statement ring.  It’s like having sparkling Christmas ornaments on your feet.

4.  Betsey Johnson Pearl Bow Studs:  These classy studs remind me of the bows on Christmas gifts.

5.  Flocked White Spruce Slim Artificial Christmas Tree: It’s always a good time to decorate A Christmas tree!  I used to be against fake trees, but I’ve come to realize that they can be just as glamourous.



1.  Dorothy Perkins Aubergine Ottoman Flare Dress: Like I said before, Dorothy Perkins has some of the most amazing affordable holiday dresses this year.  Love the flattering cut of this burgundy dress with its festive color.

2.  Nordstrom Sheer Knee High Stockings: Since this dress is rather conservative, I added some knee high stockings to keep you on the naughty list.

3.  ASOS Curb Chain Triangle Necklace: This unique necklace design goes perfect with the dress. It’s bound to turn heads and result in compliments.

4.  BaubleBar Gold Arrow Ring: Gold always goes perfect with burgundy making this the perfect ring for this holiday outfit.

What to Wear this Memorial Day Weekend

Memorial Day is this weekend and chances are you will be kicking off summer 2012 at an outdoor party somewhere.  I usually save the red, white, and blue for the Fourth of July, but you can totally go the patriotic route if you’d like.  Here are two fab Memorial Day looks that just may make this weekend your most fashionable three-day weekend yet:

1.  Theme Ready or Nautical Dress: This sea breeze dress is the perfect summer ensemble that’s bound to flatter your figure while paying homage to summers of the shores of Maine.

2.  Butter London Lippy Trout Pout: A girl’s got to have her gloss!

3.  Sperry Top-Sider Milly Authentic Original Platform Pumps: These shoes are by far the star of this outfit.  Inspired by the classic deck shoe, you’ll be getting compliments on these shoes where you go.

4.  DVF Alexandra Oversized Sunglasses: Nicole Richie and her oversized sunglasses went from hot mess to just plain hot.  These are in honor of her and her journey.

How to Wear Yellow Without Looking Like a Bee

Brights and neons have been everywhere lately. Standout colors such as yellow and orange that have been traditionally hard to wear are especially hot right now. The trick to wearing these colors without looking crazy is to embrace and own the color.  No matter how bright and bold it is, never let it wear you.  At the same time, don’t be afraid to wear brights upon brights.  Lastly, accessorize with both neons and understated colors.

1.  Solar Studs:  Great simple yellow and black studs.

2.  Color-Block Stretch-Jersey and Silk-Crepe Dress:  An elegant, yet comfortable dress perfect for a dressy summer event.

3.  Suede Point Court Shoes:  Don’t be afraid to do yellow on yellow.

4.  Swarovski Bumble Bee Bracelet:  An adorable addition to a yellow outfit.

5.  MARC BY MARC JACOBS Classic Q Francesca Tote:  Wearing yellow or not, everyone needs a basic black bag.
