Styling Challenge






























Day #3 of my styling challenge. I was recently asked to do a little project - style 5 different statement necklaces into two looks: one for work (left), and one for weekend (right) - and wanted to share the results with you guys! This third necklace is a mix of ribbons, pearls and chains. Definitely a statement piece on its own so I paired it with very simple outfits!  How would you wear it?

Disclaimer: These are my regular 'ole clothes, but I do not own the necklace.

Necklace: Stella & Dot

  3. Both are really cute. Can't remember the shoes on the left. How long ago were they purchsed. I love them. You named designer. What about the style name?

  4. Dpas, I bought those shoes in Boston probably 3 years ago. They didn't come with a box (or at least I don't have it anymore) so not sure of the style name, sorry!

  5. That necklace is beautiful!! And I love the way that you are wearing it for both outfits.
    It just stinks that it is so expensive! I would love to have that in my collection, but not for $178. :(

  8. i like the short skirt and short sleeve shirt look. i really just like how you made the necklace office ready and cocktail with friends ready.

    also, crazy. i went to my first stella and dot party friday night and i ended up getting the child version of this necklace. it was cheaper and i liked that it was shorter. you wear this necklace much better than the model in the catalog. maybe if i would have seen these pictures i would have ended up with this one!

  9. Thanks everyone!

    Jenn, a direct quote from the Stella & Dot stylist who asked me to do these photos: "don't spend the money:) Host your own Stella & Dot trunk show and get this necklace or another for free! I can give you all the details." Email me for her info JsEverydayFashion@gmail.com

    Amanda, that is too funny! I used to buy clothes at Abercrombie kids all the time for the same reason. I think I would perfer this necklace a little shorter, so be confident that you made the right choice! :-)

  13. These Stella & Dot necklaces are all amazing and you wore yours so well. Love your mixing and matching. These must be my most fave 2 looks however. Simplicity yet full of sex appeal (both times). After all one can't go wrong with a white top and blak skirt. =)
