Cherries Jubilee

I suppose I simply assumed that I would easily overcome my infatuation with statement necklaces; bib-like baubles that hang casually from your throat yet have the influence and power in their petit mixed metal bodies to assist you in channeling your inner seductress. That hypothesis was virtually cast out the window the moment my eyes landed on the Chunky Mixed Bead Necklace.

I am a firm believer in wearing the colors that so perfectly portray the season at hand; therefore, it’s merely impossible for me to simply turn away from the oh-so fall influenced hues that make up such a piece of frippery. The beads dangling haphazardly from the matte finish metal chain are some of the most captivating one may ever hope to see up close and personal; a blend of warm spice tones starting with a ravishing red, and moving towards pumpkin shades and burnt siennas, each one virtually devouring a bead of all different shapes and sizes.

And the possibilities for such a piece of finery…I’m sorry, but there are too many even to name; but I’m not one to tease mes chéris, so of course I’m willing to offer up a teeny tiny dose of styling ideas that I would deem utterly delightful should I find the Chunky Mixed Bead Necklace residing in my own jewelry collection:

A plain white tee would be given the royal treatment with a little sprucing up from such a pretty. Toss on a boyfriend blazer for a little burst of definition, and, quite frankly, you’re a star!

Don’t allow your LBD to go unaccessorized darlings; clasp the Chunky Mixed Bead Necklace about your throat to add a mind-blowing smattering of Middle Eastern inspiration that will leave you with the urge to kick up your heels and dance – with a glass of fizzy champagne in your hand, no doubt.

Who said necklaces were a no-no when out for a day at the pumpkin patch or picking apples at the local orchard with a cute boy in tow? Certainly not I. Sure, your cream-colored turtleneck looks lovely; but the autumn shades proffered by the Chunky Mixed Bead Necklace would undoubtedly make it lovelier.

Do you have a taste for cherries jubilee, kittens?


Fashionably yours!


Thanks to Lane Bryant for the pictures.

Wow. That is so beautiful. I love it. I love the colors on it. I hope you've had a great week. Take care. Cheers!

Hello LBD and oversize chunky necklace....caught my eye first thing ;)

And that is after all my work wear most of the time. Nothing like a fab chain to set off the plainest of plain tops/dressed/outfits.

Thanks for sharing. And yes, my name is Anika and I have a taste for oversize/funky/costume necklaces :)

have a great one

As I was reading this, I was picturing in my mind how I would wear it. And you painted the picture perfectly, I love both looks, the blazer and LBD. This is something my sister would just adore!

Leah said...

I love those autumn colors. I always wear necklaces to accessorize my drab black wardrobe. Hahaha!

miriam said...

oops, me again. just wanted to say thank you for you sweet comment the other day. you're the best!

Elizabeth Marie said...

Ohhhh favorite! You of course, and the necklace is coming in a close second! I love big jewelry that makes a statement! I tend to keep the wardrobe pretty basic and then load up on accessories...I think I need this.

How are you my love? I am just trying to get caught up on comments and blogs and fight the flu. Not cool, flu, not cool AT ALL.

Sam said...

Ooooh! It looks like lolliy drops - my mouth is watering! - how ridiculous is that!!! I guess that means I like them!

Couture Cookie said...

I am obsessed with chunky necklaces, although I typically like mine a tad longer than choker-style. Could there be a more perfect way to spice up a boring LBD? I'm guilty of wearing pearls or classic/boring/discreet diamonds with mine way too often!

Samantha said...

gorgeous, i love chunky necklaces<3
peace&love

captivate me. said...

Emily said...

S.Elisabeth said...

Statement jewelry is always so gorgeous. I love this one in particular.
a statement necklace + a simple tee=perfection!

Polished Sense said...

So beautiful! Want one, but you know what...I've never had a Cherry Jubilee...Maybe you should suggest one to try? I'm really wondering how it tastes. Sounds so de-lish!

♡,
Jessica

E said...

I love the red colors and chains together!!

Luinae said...

If you wore that necklace with a cream and black sweater, well fitting jeans, and a pair oh heels- it would steal the show! I think I may have to go about making one now......

Lily G. said...

Hawa said...

Cancha-diction said...

oddly enough my professor was wearing a very similar necklace today in class. and i would never expect her to be a style icon. but according to your post she is! awesome!

Kellie Collis said...

Pretty detail here!

Sherin said...

I love the colours on the necklace. Perfect for Autumn, and I think that would look lovely with a LBD.

Sweet_Tooth said...

fantastic tips! such brilliant suggestions ...as brilliant as those luxurious jewel tone colors in the necklaces. My favorite shades!

All Women Stalker said...

Great styling ideas. Been obsessed with them because I have been watching Bones and Glee lately. Bones and the guidance teacher in Glee have great necklaces!
