Neck Envy

It’s funny because I never used to wear necklaces. But not that my hair is shorter I opt to wear bold necklaces in the place of earrings. I have had a new found love for statement necklaces over the past six months. The collection just keeps growing and growing. The above necklace I just got a few days ago at Aldo Shoes. When I saw it I almost died. I had to have it. A white necklace has been on my wish list for the longest and at $25 bucks…it was a fashion STEELE and totally worth it!
Check out more of my statement necklaces below.
I get tons of compliments anytime I wear this Modern Tibet necklace I picked up at the Christmas Market at Union Square in December. I think it cost $35..I can’t remember.

Picked this necklace up recently during the Thrift and the City shopping tour for $8 fashion STEELE! See it worn HERE!

I swapped this necklace at my Shop and Swap event. It even helped me win best dressed at a fashion show HERE and I won a DKNY watch! 

Picked up this lovely Mango necklace at the Mango & Marie Claire Night of Style.
See it worn with my Mango maxi skirt HERE!

I love wearing this with a more sophisticated look. I got this necklace at Housing Works Thrift Shop for $ STEELE! See it worn HERE!!!!

This is the DIY statment necklace I made with items from Michaels. Love it!

I also got this lovely capsule Diesel Necklace from Housing Works Thrift Shop.

Got this stunning necklace at the store in the W Hotel at Fashion Night at the W Hotel.
 This was the most expensive necklace. I think it cost $50 and it was on sale.

I also got this necklace for $5 during the Thrift and the City shopping tour.

This is one of my favorite rocker chic necklaces that I got from Forever 21 a few years ago.

There is something about this black stone that I love. It makes any outfit instantly glam. This was only $1 at Goodwill.
So are you all into statment necklaces and whats your favorite of mine??
 It’s enough to give a girl neck envy right lol.

    I am sooo in love with that Swap and Shop necklace! I need to look for something similar. I am so surprised someone would want to swap it! I’d never let that thing leave my neck!!

    It’s amazing how bold statement pieces like these can completely change your look. You could wear a different one each day with a different top and completely change the look. I love looking at all of them -totally inspiring.
