12 Days of Christmas: Day 4


no holiday is complete without a little jewelry underneath the tree or around your neck, right?

i’m absolutely in LOVE with big statement necklaces at the moment. like this one by betsey johnson at macy’s. the bead and fireball necklace will have you looking like you’re all wrapped up like a gift!

you’ve probably been party to the collar trend that we’ve seen all over the place. collars are totally in – on top of what you’re wearing, with a strapless or lower cut top, just … everywhere. i love that asos has made it easy to do this trend with jewelryicon.

icon affordable, too, $21.82.

i’ve also seen a lot of necklaces out there there look like they’re scarves, but they’ve got incredible sequins and beading added to them. one example is this piece called the le charlot necklace by roarke. icon

this piece is definitely for those with a little more change in their pocket, but i feel pretty sure that we’ll see less expensive version out there very soon. this would pack a punch with any outfit, however.

i like this red spike necklace from kenneth jay lane, too. it’s in the more affordable range at $80. it’s for those days that maybe you want to tell people to stay back or that you’re sharp in mind and body. love a good piece of costume jewelry like this.

also on my LOVE THAT list of fabulous statement necklaces that will dress up any little black dress you may have is this anne klein necklace with hematite-tone jewels.

if you’ve got a colored dress that’s plain, and it needs a little jazzing up, then this piece from fossil will be right up your alley. it’s almost like a bib necklace, but it’s sticking to the basics. the neutrals of jewelry, if you will.

last, but certainly not least, is this HUGE statement of a necklace from the women’s st. john collection. it’s a limited edition crystal bow statement necklace that is just TO DIE FOR.

it’s so large, so detailed, so decadent, it’s almost too much. it’s also $595, which is definitely too much for me. but hey, perhaps for you? who knows?

until next time ladies, xoxo nettaP

12 Days of Christmas: Day 2


today is day 2 of the 12 days of christmas, and i couldn’t get very far into this without focusing on shoes. shocker, i know. seeing as i own countless pairs of them. i literally have 2 closets FULL of shoes at my house. i think this probably makes me a horrible person on some level, but then again, shoes almost always still fit.

up first, some affordable options from kmart.

the qupid women’s pamper sherpa short boot in black is not the most attractive looking shoe on kmart’s website, but i think that has something to do with how it’s been photographed. imagine this warm-looking boot on your foot with a pair of black jeggings tucked in and a chic tunic on top with a fantastic obi belt wrapped around your waist, some big chunky rings on your finger and a classic khaki trench on top to protect you from the snow. HELLO. and you can change up the laces to change up the look. these are $37.49. (and kmart has some great shipping offers as well as discount codes going on right now. just click through the photo to get to their site and take advantage.)

unnnnh yes. this is like the perfect foot punctuation for a party look. hell, i’d wear these around the house if i could get away with it. from the platform to the velvet, to the flower, to the mary jane look. this qupid women’s olwyn velvet flower mary jane in black from kmart is workin’ it for all it’s name is worth! it’s on sale for $29.99.

did you hear that asos is having a 40% off sale on shoes right now? that’s music to this girl’s ears because they have some of the HOTTEST options that i would put into the “affordable” price range. and you know they have free shipping to you and free returns, right? love that. these bad boys have pink, glitter, platforms, bows, and velvet. i can’t decide if these are too much are just right. so maybe i’ll just take advantage of that free shipping deal and order them and see … icon

icon now here’s a shoe that i’m totally, totally sure of. it’s green velvet. it’s an ankle boot. it just looks rich. end of. iconiconicon and i’m pretty into the iconhigh heeled loafer look that i’ve seen recently. these are from irregular choice, which is a brand that we’ve talked about before because i’m obsessed with how weird they are. anyway, there are on sale for $89.99, usually $179.99. come on ladies! almost $100 read more
