In the Details:: OOTD with ONecklace

1 Aug
For today’s outfit post I wanted to focus on the details. The tassels on my (borrowed) boots, the criss crossed back of my summer dress, and my most worn pieces of the summer: my necklaces. The top necklace is of a tiny pave hamsa hand, but I’ve had friends mistake it for a corn on the cob so yunno, eye of the beholder and such. It’s so tiny actually that I lost this necklace for a couple months, and when I found it in a pocket I was beyond thrilled and haven’t taken it off since. The bottom necklace is new this summer, and likewise I haven’t taken it off since I received it. I think we’re all familiar with the Carrie element of this necklace. 
Pieces with a moniker or monogram are a fun way to add personal meaning to your look. It’s kind of like how people say “if I get a tattoo I want it to have meaning.”*  This necklace is kind of like that, except, less permanent. 
Not only is this my last name, it is also my nickname from a special friend of mine, so Cleveland is totally apropos. If you’d like your own version of The Cleveland, but with your name, of course, this one’s 24 karat gold plated and surprisingly good quality. Many thanks to ONecklace for sending this little nugget to be a part of my collection! You know how I love my layered necklaces.

*Why do people always utter this phrase in a proud tone? As if all who’ve gone before them had said “I’ll have a tattoo please, no meaning thanks.”

LOOK FOR LESS:: GIVENCHY SHARK TOOTH

23 Jul
both available at fashionology                                                                 

 I’m a small necklace girl. I wear a couple of itsy bitsy pendants on teensy weensy chains every day – the smaller the better! But somehow I’m finding myself drawn to these giant jagged shark tooth necklaces by Givenchy. Not enough to sink my rent into one (though even if I was, these things are somehow sold out!) so these lookalikes from fashionology are looking very attractive to my pocketbook right now. The white shark tooth is a little bit the souvenir you’d beg your mom for at the natural science museum gift shop when you were 7 and insist that you’ll wear it everyday. But both are sure to add a little edge (heh heh, get it?) to an outfit this summer. I’m picturing beachside drinks with a long white maxi dress and this around my neck.

Would you buy a shark tooth necklace for $950?
How bout for $42?
