Making a Statement

There's a lot of talk about "statement jewelry" in the fashion-sphere...but what exactly is "statement jewelry"?  I found a great summary on
  • "I think of statement pieces as interesting, attractive and relatively eye-catching wardrobe items that reflect your personality.  They are usually quite bold and unique, but not necessarily brightly colored and oversized.  They are often, but not always, the thing people notice first about your outfit."
Forever 21 shorts - FC ($7.50)
Ann Taylor Loft (red) shirt - FC ($7)
Soho Lab wedges - FC ($10)
Vintage Dooney & Bourke purse - FC ($40)
Multi beaded statement necklace - FC ($4)
F21 sunglasses; multi friendship bracelets

This is by far my favorite "statement necklace": it's the one that made me decide I need more statement necklaces.  It is my favorite to the point where my friend commented that I had been wearing it too much...never a good sign...but I can't help it - it matches everything!  I love statement necklaces paired with crew-neck tees or with a simple dress as a pop of color, it instantly adds oomph to any outfit!

There's plenty of blogger inspiration out there for how to wear a statement necklace:
