Statement Necklaces

They come in many shapes and sizes, bold or daring, bright colors, expensive or cheap, chic or goth. For many years now, statement necklaces have been a big thing accessory-wise. They can be worn with every clothing item, from dresses to t-shirts or anything else you can imagine. You see all the celebrities doing it, models or even business women and every name in the design business has them in their collections. Below I'll show you some pictures with my taste in statement necklaces and soon enough, I'll do a DYI post  with the ones I created myself.


 Ema Stone is amazing in this strapless brocade Lanvin dress, and she accessorized it with a dazzling statement necklace and brooch belt, all by the same designer.

If you're looking for a new way to wear your old boring blouses, here's the perfect way to do it. Above is a pretty silk blouse adorned with a statement necklace. It's fresh, modern, and totally ladylike, and can be worn with jeans and skirts alike.

SheInside review

I don't know if I wanna go that way and do reviews too often, but since I read so many terrible things about, I thought I could clear some stuff up. When I found sheinside, I was SO happy because they have wide varieties of gorgeous clothing and a lot to choose from.  I stumbled upon this website after seeing many different reviews from the people I follow on fashiolista.

They have so many options, from dresses to blazers, jewelry, bathing suits, winter jackets  and everything else that is in between. The styles are so unique and if you are looking for basic items, they also have great, classic, simple pieces. However, what I really loved were the quirkier items. They have a fantastic selection of vintage dresses, with some patterns that are like nothing I've ever seen and some dresses and shirts have with really interesting cuts and patterns. What I also love is that they seem to always come up with new designs, and I especially love their large collection of sweaters!

So, remember my post about those amazing sweaters ? I said I'd order one soon and I kept my word. Shortly after that post, I had to make a choice: which one do I want most? So I went for the pink one, with the floral print and the "Dior" writing on it. After I looked on a few sites, I found it on SheInside and everything just seemed right. It was even cheaper than on romwe and they have free shipping worldwide!

I have to confess that I did read some horrible reviews AFTER I ordered and I thought crap, I’m going to lose my money. But I got a confirmation email really fast, and after they received the payment, I was able to track my order online with no issues.   

So I am super happy I took the gamble. The sweater is absolutely gorgeous and it looks super cute on. It fits perfectly and looks exactly like the pictures on the site. Love the style and for the price, it is perfect! Very unique, and I am definitely not going to run into another girl wearing the same top as me! 

The shipping took a few weeks because it's coming from China, but the website says it takes 5-7 business days to process and then another 5-20 business days to ship. Well, that is about a month, so no reason to complain. To be more precisely, I ordered it on  April 28th and received it today. 

This is how the package looked.

Street Style: 3 awesome outfits that started with a t-shirt

Most closets are full with t-shirts, basic pieces that you might not think of as the building rocks of a truly awesome outfit - but they are. Honestly, great looks don't have to be complicated and you don't need a fancy blouse to make your ensemble noteworthy; it's all about what you wear with your tee. Below I borrowed inspiration from some well-known fashion bloggers. Scroll down to see some magic happening with a greatly styled tee.
