As a little girl I loved playing with my moms costume jewelry. I vividly recall watching her carefully apply her makeup which consisted of Covergirl foundation, black eyeliner, blush and a bright lipstick. She'd leave the room misty after applying half a can of V05 hair spray but she looked flawless each and every time. Then she would select a few accessories to go with her outfit and she was ready to go! I guess the apple really doesn't fall far from the tree. I never leave home without my accessories because I feel naked without them.
On Sunday, I was able to take advantage of the nice weather and style this teardrop statement necklace from Gabby's House of Jewelry. If you haven't heard of Gaby's online boutique then you should check it out because she has a ton of trendy accessories, all under $30!!! I've purchased so many great pieces from her boutique and I can't seem to get enough. The moment I saw this necklace, I just knew I had to have it! Although it looked a little intimidating because of the size, I accepted the challenge and made it the focal point of my outfit with a white graphic t-shirt and black midi-skirt. To play up the color of the necklace I wore a similar hue on my lips and nails. The necklace is no longer available in this color but Gaby does have it in a beautiful turquoise color for $18, click here.
Thanks for stopping by! Xoxo
