Been looking everywhere for -affordable- necklaces like these… Such statement pieces can make a simple outfit special, and make a special outfit complete. But I unfortunately can’t find one around here, in Amsterdam. There might be a place that sells them, but with my 14-year old pocketmoney really stunning ones just won’t get in my drawer… Maybe I’ll make one myself :)
ooh, I wish I could upload a photo here that I took of something I wore recently- a vintage sequined jacket from the 80′s paired with a Maasi style multi-strand beaded necklace…somehow the opulence of both worked together…and I’m a NYer, btw
Like miniature pieces of armour, aren’t they? Michelle Jank has been making wonderful pieces like the one chosen by your girl with the red tights for ages. Sometimes made with precious metals and stones, other times resin, etc. One particularly memorable neck piece has a clear resin background and a large perfect red heart (if I remember correctly); very beautiful. Also love the feathers on the ‘dream catcher’ version in the accompanying shot. B
Big necklaces can really add to a classic outfit; better made or customised for individuality & one’s own entertainment. This type of beadwork is common in South Africa, where the different colours have meanings (the Maasai are from Kenya &Tanzania, in East Africa)
I remember thinking the same thing when I was in Paris in October (and ran into you with your bke at the Palais Royale!) and immediately started thinking of my jewelry collection and whether I had a necklace quite so massive. I loved the look of one strong, dominant accessory.
Love the red. In fact I love everything about the second picture! The hair, the cropped sweatshirt! The nude colored heels! The hair… everything. I like the necklaces, even though I don’t wear jewelry myself. But the one strong piece is a nice way to go.
I love a bold necklace! It turns a tee and a skirt into a gorgeous and totally unique outfit! Check out my statement neon rope and rhinestone necklaces and bracelets on http://www.etsy.com/shop/kikinyc
LOVE the big necklace! It totally makes an outfit (although it doesn’t hurt that both of these ladies are gorgeous and have awesome style). Check out my neon rope and vintage rhinestone necklaces on http://www.etsy.com/shop/kikinyc
You haven’t seen these in New York or Milan? Well, I’ve seen them all over the Midwest! They’re definitely a new favorite phenomenon. As a rural Minnesotan by blood, I can safely say that serious fashion doesn’t always confine itself to global centers of culture.
Hey,I really love the glasses,the first one.And the necklace too,I like its tribal feel-mode..Anyways,I just want to share this cool app called “Should I buy it?”–>http://bit.ly/sibifm33–> for fellow online shoppers which you can download at iTunes that allows you to get instant feedback from your Facebook friends on whether you should buy something or not (either for yourself or as a gift).I have tried it and it is really amazing..:D
Scott, maybe you need to visit cities other than Florence, Paris, NYC and Milan on a more regular basis. I agree with Cheryl and Bess…..you couldn’t have looked very hard. Statement necklaces have been huge in NYC and Boston for well over 2 years now. I love it, personally, but since it’s been around for so many seasons, I’m almost ready to give it a rest. How is it that you’re just catching on?
This is one of the most wonderfully dressed woman Ive ever seen!!!! Does anybody knows who she is? hahaha, i just saw the comment upon mine :) thanks!!! and thanks to Satorialist for this amazing picture!
