the affair of the necklace

Statement necklaces. A wonderful world for a magpie like me. I have LOADS OF THEM. But for the purposes of helping you source a good one (or two) to get you through any outfit I have narrowed it down to 7 deadly wins…(high fives all round for that turn of phrase I feel???)

Right. You need a gold one. This is fantastical.


EXCELLENT. Have another look close up..



Aw it’s a keeper. Anytime you wear black, white, brown…ANYTHING, this is your BFF. €135 @…Not cheap mind, but oh so worth it.



In awe.

Next is a silver surfer.


I love this, its pure summer around your neck. And it’ll jingle jangle a happy tune. AND it’s only €22 @ Called the Boho Statement Necklace. In fact, go buy it now and come back and read the rest of the post…

I’m a big fan of layering varying lengths of chains especially if wearing a flowy dress with a low neck, very Kate Hudson in Almost Famous (ahem)

So this caught my eye…


So pretty. You can wear it long or short too which rocks my world.



But there’s more…you can REVERSE the pendant…think of the VAST amount of outfits that can be accessorised…the possibilities…!!



It’s €79 from Stella&Dot and those lovely people have a silver version too. Thoughtful.

If you go long add in an interesting tot from Warehouse for £14 and let the layer up begin.

Dream team.

A bit off the charts here with contestant number five but I was DRAWN to this sugarpop. I think it could be magnificent in the right setting…A casual look taken to the next level maybe…there’s something about it.




The shirt’s not a bad idea, but I see it with a jumper and jeans and knee high boots, drinking champagne, with your favourite bird, having just finished shopping on a Saturday before Christmas. When life is good.

Talking of champagne, time for some show stoppers….

We must pause and look at this for a moment. Very good indeed. This milkshake will bring the boys to the yard, perhaps only because they don’t understand what it is and need to see it up close, but they’ll come over (well, if they’re anything like my B-side …”what’s that you’re wearing?…WHA???”)….Topshop £18.50…£18.50!!! I’m too good to you.

And finally, THE BEHEMOTH…


I know what you’re thinking, yeah pretty enough…but then, turn around to walk away and….


DISCO QUEEN. That’s how to make a statement! Nice work €40

That’ll get you through the summer. Or, in my case, til next week when this shopaholic will start a new affair.
