The dramatic neck line

Unless you've been under a rock, you will have noticed that one of the fashion world's latest obsessions is chunky, over the top, jewel/stone/bling encrusted everything!  Being more of a simple gal myself with accessories this new found craze has actually, surprisingly, gotten my attention. I'm not sure that I could stack up my arm to the point of immovability like some, or add so many necklaces that it makes it difficult for one's eyes to focus (don't even get me started on whether I have enough core strength to sustain a vertical position under the buckling weight of oodles of jewellery either), but adding one hell of a dramatic feature worthy necklace, well... this I can do.

  4. You selected some incredibly beautiful pieces Mandi. Too hard to choose a fave but I really like the Dannijo and Beamon one! :) I love how a good statement necklace can totally transform a look.

    1. Ah.. you've picked my favourite (the Dannijo). It's nice that one piece can lift an outfit so easily. I'm contemplating but baulking at the prices... Ouch!

    1. I haven't worn anything this dramatic either but I would love one. The price is the thing that really stops me though :(

  8. Hahaha....too funny! I couldn't help laughing at your comments. I've been seeing plenty of arm candies - all on the same arm. Or piles of necklaces. I like the look of them but I can't imagine myself doing the same. BUT...I've been lusting after these eye-catching statement necklaces myself. Each one of them would look absolutely stunning against a crew neckline.

    1. I love the idea of against a crew neckline. The teaming of a dramatic necklace with a basic and more relaxed outfit really takes my fancy. Ha ha... I knew you would get my drift with the piling on :)

  10. I'm more of a bracelet person than a necklace person, but even I have bought a few little statement necklaces. Nice cheap way to add something to your look I find! :)

    1. You have some brilliant bracelets which I eye off on your every post :) That's the only issue with the statement necklaces is the cost :( x
