Making a statement

Confession time. I’m an addict. I can’t ignore the sparkles and shininess. I’m unable to walk past any shop that has the bright coloured ones on display. Show me one that has big round beads and I’m a goner and if there’s one that’s neon it’s mine as soon as I spot it. Yes I admit I can’t say no to a statement necklace.

Being a supremely lazy dresser it’s obvious I’d fall for the statement necklace. What easier way is there to get compliments on your outfit? Simply bung the nearest beaded necklace on top of a plain Gap t-shirt and jeans or the nearest bright confection on with your beloved stripy dress and you’re set. However the last two weeks have been ridiculous in their statement necklace purchasing even for me. In the space of three days I’d bought three, one from accessorize that I’ve been pining over for AGES and could justify in a pre flight airport purchase and two from a Portuguese shop which was selling amazing necklaces for £10. Yes TEN ACTUAL POUNDS. I know! Thankfully Laura was as trigger happy with the spending as me and she also bought three necklaces. Basically we’re set for a few months with awesome necklaces!

And here they are all their glory… Tell us which is your favourite? It’s one of mine right?!

[All necklaces are from Stradivarius or Accessorize]

As I’m a fan of dreaming up outfits, below is a selection of what I’m going to be wearing these necklaces with – all totally swoon worthy aren’t they?

Tell me, have you ever gone overboard on one item of clothing or accessories, it can’t just be me – please tell me it’s not just me…
