Neck Candy



Collar necklaces have been everywhere lately and as much as I wanted one, I never really found a style I loved at the right price.  Then earlier this week while making a return at Forever 21, I spotted this beauty sitting among some other jewelry on a display table.  It was the only one in the whole store and I couldn't find a link to it online (sorry!) - also, I was pretty pleased that it was under $20.  I decided to dress it down with a simple shell + jeans...and because it is such a strong statement piece, I chose to skip the arm party and let the necklace speak for itself.





What I'm wearing:
ASOS top (similar), Forever 21 jeans (similar), tote (here) & necklace (similar save or splurge), ALDO booties (on sale here)

And speaking of amazing jewelry...come check out my first post as a contributing writer for the Poshlocket Blog - I'm sharing my favorite statement pieces from their site (all under $50)!

The statement necklace is such an amazing piece. And the top is very well chosen in order to emphasize the necklace.

Love the necklace. I am like you, I've wanted one and could never find the right style for me. But now I have to stop by F21 to see if they have this one. I also love you back, I think i prefer the white over the black one though. I guess the white one is no longer in season.

This was a great outfit for the necklace. I've been on the fence about these myself - not quite seeing the right one yet. But this one you bought is fabulous and at the perfect price point! I also love the bright orange top. :)
