Latest Purchases: Some Neutral Statement Necklaces

I’ve been on the lookout for a great white and silver statement necklace for the last year or so, and I’ve been looking especially hard over the summer too. As it happened I ended up coming across all four of these over the after Christmas sales!! I was particularly thrilled about finding these two pearl ones as they are both super fun as well as being rather dressy. The pearls on the black ribbon I picked up for $3!!!
As I can’t find any of these online I took pics myself. They should all be still in stores though. :)
1. This necklace was a gift but I know it’s from Myers as I helped choose it – it’s by Basque. The silver beads are so lovely and shiny and it makes such a great statement piece. It’s bigger than it looks here and is quite heavy too, although I hardly notice it when it’s on.
2. This necklace was from Diva at Melbourne Central. I’ve actually looked for it in a couple of other stores and they didn’t have it – it’s not online either. So if you’re in Melbourne, there were quite a few there. I imagine it’s new stock so hopefully it will be around if you like it. I absolutely LOVE this necklace. The pearls are a really nice white and it has glittery rhinestone beads too. 

3. My $3 pearl necklace was from Target. It was in the sale racks but there were a few of them left when I bought it. It’s really pretty. It has large bobbly pearls alternating with rhinestones and black beads. I love the black satin ribbon too.
4. This was another necklace from Diva. They have it in both gold or silver findings (and I think there were some different colours too). It’s a great simple white statement necklace that is going to go with everything (it is especially pretty against solid black though). If you look below you will see my little refashion.
The necklace actually came with two strands. It sat a bit funny on me so I clipped one of them off with my jewellery pliers. I’m not sure what do do with the other strand yet. It may become a bracelet, or another necklace. :)
So if you are in Australia and looking for a neutral statement necklace I hope this might be of help. Oh and Lovisa have a few lovely white and gold ones at the moment too and there is a pretty white beaded  tassel one still at Myers (not online either I’m sorry). 
I haven’t come across that many on the International sites lately to recommend unfortunately. Shop Style or The Find are great places to search for them if your interested.
I think I might do a 5 ways with a white necklace in the next few days too.
What’s your favourite style/colour of neutral necklace?
PS: The big white daisy clip in the top photo is from Lovisa. They have lots of fun daisies at the moment!

Getting Ready for Spring!

Spring Shopping
Instead of an outfit today I thought I’d share some of my latest purchases. I’ve had a good couple of shops the last week or so. It’s always exciting to see the new stock come in for Spring! I think accessories are the best (and most fun) way to update a wardrobe for the new season.
I am crazy for this pink and orange ring! It was from Target (Australia).  The other three are from Lovisa. They were 3 for $10!!
I got these 3 for $10 at Lovisa too!!
Black and White

So I bought another black and white bag!…. I just couldn’t resist this one. I got it for $5 at a thrift shop. It looks brand new too. This black and white scarf I got from Harris Scarf on sale!


Neon yellow is my favourite!!! The jewellery is from Kmart, the shirt is from ICE and the flowers are a clue to this week’s DIY.


Silver flats! From Target on sale too!
Which are your favourite items??? How do you think I’ve gone?? What else would be a good accessory to bring in this spring????
