Make a Statement!

In preparation for my study abroad I have been buying staple pieces, like sweaters, alot of solids and only a few printed unique pieces. I just feel that I am going to be wearing the clothes I bring over and over again and I want pieces that I can mix and match easily. I recently talked to a friend that is currently studying in London and told me that the fashion is crazy, and she cannot wait for me to see. I dress fairly conservatively and I would consider my wardrobe a bit on the preppy side of things. So hearing that my classic wardrobe might stick out like a sore thumb, I am planning on getting some cool accessories to brighten up the repetitive wardrobe! Here is what I am thinking:

This is a sassy piece from J.Crew it is out of my price range but I think I could find something along these lines. I think it would look really cute with a sweater or with a dress for an evening out! Versatility is the KEY!

This is also J.Crew it is still kind of expensive because it is gold, and brass with glass pave stones. I love the chain link design!

I have had my eye on this for awhile! My family has been going to Nantucket every summer since I was born, and I really want a gold basket on a skinny gold chain. I realize that this is not the statement piece that I am hoping to rock overseas. But maybe a going away gift from my mom? Wishful thinking, I know!

Ruffle my feathers Tory Burch! I love the bright blue of the fathers, and I like the relaxed style of the neck strap.
Tory Burch clear resin bangles with feathers in them are amazing, on the website you can see them on an arm, and it looks like you have feathers dancing on your arm! Flawless.

Since I have been dating my architecturally savvy asian, I am really appreciating angles and shapes and this statement cuff is great!!!!

Please let me know if you know of any places that have great statement jewelry!!

See you back here tomorrow!!


  1. Oh wow you picked out some great pieces.

    I love hitting up Anthro, J CREW and Banana Republic for jewels.

    I also find tons of stuff at Forever 21. Plus if I ever lose anything etc it's not a big deal, b/c I didn't spend a lot. Many of the pieces that I get complements on our from there.

    So jealous that you are going aboard. You are going to have an amazing time!

  2. Whoever told you London fashion is crazy really wasn't lying! The bracelets all seem like they would be awesome additions to any wardrobe, but you could even push it more for the rest of the accessories. Of course, this is coming from me, and you know I love over-the-top, so take that advice with a grain of salt! Here's the link for my favorite accessory designer. Just a little inspiration for you!

    love love,

  3. Love that chain link bracelet!!
