Two weeks ago I was walking through Dillards as I traversed the mall. As I sauntered through the main aisle, my eyes landed on what had to be one of the largest, most random necklaces I’d ever seen. It was an enormous elephant head pendant on a gold chain, and as soon as I saw it I knew it had to be mine. Mine, mine, mine!
And as strange as a huge elephant head pendant may seem to be (believe me, I questioned myself about the purchase for a bit, but I was so incredibly drawn to it I didn’t have much of a choice), I’ve actually found a lot of outfits to wear it with so far. It’s such a statement, and I’m totally loving it. Plus, it was only $25, so it didn’t set me back all that much. I know it isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but in the 3 times I’ve worn it I have been stopped by so many people…inquiring where I got it because they like it too. Who would have thought?
Anyway, I thought my elephant bib necklace would pair well with this awesome black and white striped dress I snagged the other day at Marshalls…for $20. I love how the stripes travel in different directions across the top and bottom of the dress – it’s a good visual, and the fit is classic yet fun. Plus, black and white is all the rage right about now – embracing that particular trend is something I have no problem with!
Striped dress: Monteau, purchased at Marshalls (same brand, similar dress here) // Elephant Bib Necklace: Ana & Ava, Dillards // Black envelope clutch: ASOS (similar also at ASOS) // Wedges: Coconuts, purchased 2 years ago at Marshalls (similar at Zappos)
Do you have a statement piece of jewelry that you love wearing?
