The Only Statement Necklace You Need (ft. Victoria Emerson)

Some news: I got a new lens, a new necklace, and a new bag of pita chips, and that’s what you missed on Glee!

However, since they have yet to invent a food-to-screen technology à la Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, I will be sharing only two of those three things with you today. But if you find yourself with some orphaned pita chips in need of a dip, 10/10 Greek grandmas would recommend this tzatziki recipe. Critics (me) are calling it the best thing to come out of the homeland since John Stamos.

On to fashion!

This is a look that to me screams “successful lifestyle blogger on her way to a power brunch with her peers to discuss a new range of stationary”. Something about it just gives off the vibe that the wearer is a very chic but verrrry busy (ugh seriously have you seen her Google calendar? n-i-g-h-t-m-a-r-e) millennial who uses the phrase “my personal brand” on an hourly basis. And who drinks a lot of turmeric, because don’t you know matcha is so 2016?

It also kind of screams “Elly, you are turning into your mother” re: the coat and sensible sweater, but I’m ok with that.

However, the focal point of this is 100% the dope pendant necklace, kindly sent from the heavens (AKA your new favourite accessories designer, Victoria Emerson) to upgrade my wardrobe. I’ve been on the hunt for a statement necklace that doesn’t look too tween-y, and Victoria Emerson do a whole range of them supremely well.

I love how simple yet sophisticated this necklace is, and how it can effortlessly go from day to night. I paired mine here with a cropped boat-neck sweater for the daytime, but I have visions of myself wearing it with a plunging neckline top for going out. Those visions will unfortunately have to be put on hold until I can acquire some boob tape, but they exist nonetheless.

Since the piece does its job as a statement necklace and, well, makes a statement, I’ve kept the rest of the outfit super simple.  I’m adhering to an all-neutral colour palette —love trying new things!!!!— and complementing the long necklace with a gorgeous pair of stud earrings, also by Victoria Emerson.

Look out for the second part of this collaboration in the coming weeks! It’s a good ‘un, even if I did freeze my nips off in pursuit of the perfect picture.

Fancy yourself a gold tassel necklace of your very own? Buy this one here —it’s on sale!— and make all your statement necklace dreams come true. My earrings are also on sale here, and if you use this referral link, you’ll get 30% off your purchase. What a time to be alive. Happy shopping, kids.

Thank you to Victoria Emerson for sending me the necklace and earrings to feature! As always, all opinions are my own.
