♥ Statement piece of the season ♥

32 Comments

Hello my Beauties. 

Have you noticed how the fashion industry and different media encourages us to invest in great unique statement pieces? Especially this fall it was all over the internet, TV and magazines. Or maybe it was just me, who paid more attention than usual to accessories and jewelry of every kind…
When i read Taylor’s post on “Heavy Metal” (back in september) – and her bold silver chain necklace, it definitely made me think about getting an addition to my statement pieces. Especially during the cold time of the year i tend to wear big and bold necklaces or chains, over some one colored turtlenecks.
It seems to elongate your neck line and make you look festive in any occasion. But of course it looks really good under a blouse with collar as well.

When i passed by a Bijou Brigitte accessory store, this gold necklace immediately caught my eye. I know i know, it’s not that of a fancy store, but a common accessory chain that you will find  in every mall. But who said a statement piece has to be a family’s heirloom?! As long as it suits your taste and it’s something different, i say: go for it!

Here you can really see how it consists of 14 separated pieces, hold together by little circles on the backside. The surface is wavelike with little dimples, which gives the gold metal an additional shine, when being exposed to sun – or artificial light.

When i recently went out to a birthday dinner of my friend, i wore a simple black turtleneck paired with a black vest. It definitely gave the gold necklace a chance to shine (literally)! 
As it was already a bit chilly, i also wrapped my shoulders with a back & gold “chain scarf”, which is almost classic and has been out there as a print for the longest time, not since Dolce & Gabbana.
The result was a fresh & shiny appearance. 

Last but not least: after wearing the piece a few times, i got a surprising mail from a friend in Norway, with an intresting picture of the norwegian sports commentator wearing exact same necklace on TV.

That made me smile. A lot. It’s nice to have the sense for the right statements. 😉

What do you think about statement pieces? Have you any favorites? Do you like to spice up your daily outfits?
Share your secrets.

  1. Great piece! Looks great. Thanks for the link 🙂

  2. Oh you look so pretty! Loving this piece. And so cool about that picture too of the newscaster. I love accessories myself but with little bean, you know he’s going to pull it off one way or another haha.

    • Aww thank you my dear jellybean. You’re too kind.
      Yes the newscaster literally just made my day when i saw the pic. 🙂
      Well, you either wait a bit till the lill one is older or you go for some sturdy bracelets or something made of wood. Could be nice too. What do you think?

      • Yay! We did it! The pretty link is up! hehe. I know I’m going to buy some accessories in the future, I still kept some of my purple collection 😀 but basically most of my necklaces and other stuff to my cousins. Well, a good excuse to buy some new ones later on hahah. Wood might be good, I’m sure there are a few of them around.

      • Oh def a great excuse to get new pieces (but than again, who needs excuses? We are talking accessories here 😛
        Pls let me know (or better do a blog post) what you’ve got when you do! 😉

      • Indeed, who needs excuses? I want, I buy! hahah. Will do! Will a special edition blog on this as you know I’m your beauty bean or DIY whatchamacallit LOL.

      • OH i can’t wait. Hey i bet you gan get some wooden pieces that you can make to a necklace yourself. I bet you could easily do that!

  3. That’s hilarious, piece well chosen. I think that’s the key with statement pieces, you don’t want to spend too much on them in case you get bored! I really like your choice though.

    • Well noticed my dear. Most of the statement pieces are so bold that its hard to wear them with every outfit and on every occasion. (just imagine you would have that one on every picture taken of you O.o)
      Btw some of my friend commented on that piece saying: OMG it looks like Batman 😉 –> made me wonder…am I Batman?
      (how was that old saying: I’m not saying I’m batman, I’m just saying nobody has ever seen me and batman in the same room!) 😛

  4. I love the necklace! I love a statement jewel!!!!!

  5. This looks GORGEOUS on you! Love it!

    • Thank you so much sweetie, it’s sweet of you to say. 🙂
      I finally rediscovered golden pieces for me. Was wearing silver accessories much more during the past years.

      • You’re welcome! 🙂 I have also been wearing a lot of gold. I used to hate it! I especially love a deeper brassy gold, kind of tarnished. 🙂

      • Totally! I like everything from bronze to rose gold at the moment. Depending on what type of clothes im wearing.

  6. Awesome necklace and great photos of you! 😀

  7. Oh wow Luchessa, I absolutely love this one on you! I seldom go for statement jewelry, as most of my clothes already make a bit of a statement! The piece I wear the most often is a Tiffany interlocking circles necklace that I received as a birthday present 2 years ago. Still not getting tired of it 🙂

    • Thanks a lot hon. I wasn’t much of a statement jewelry girl before, until recently. In the past few yeas i discovered my love for the intresting pieces.
      But I think a delicate Tiffany must be a good choice in many different occasions. So enjoy! 🙂

  8. I absolutely love your blog! As a result, I nominated you for the Liebster Award! Check out the details on my blog ^__^
