Statement Necklaces

It’s the first day of spring and it feels like the dead of winter. I am sitting at my computer with some Starbucks Passion tea to soothe this sore throat of mine and window shopping online. At the request of Sasha and a couple of other girls, I am going to be writing about the horse races like Gold Cup, Foxfield, Preakness, Kentucky Derby and all the other derby-esque fashions. I am going a wee bit formal this year with my choice of attire, hat and accessories. Here are two necklace options for that strapless number. When I saw the black necklace, I couldn’t believe it was by Forever 21. The Gemstone Cluster Necklace is beautiful. The cluster of black stones dangle on a black link chain and just stands out. It is elegance at its finest. This necklace looks like it would cost a lot but it’s not. Get it at Forever 21 online for just $6.80.

I like upgrades and I am sure you do too. J. Crew has a similar necklace in turquoise, brilliant blue and sweet papaya. The bold colors are very spring-esque. The turquoise necklace is timeless. Imagine a wearing this delicate necklace white cotton dress in the summer or jeans and a white top. The stones are suspended beautifully on an 18 karat gold plated chain. Tres chic. The J. Crew Bubble necklace is available online and in stores for $150.
