Take Over Control

I am an avid fan of jewelry; I have tons and love incorporating it into my outfits. But a style that has caught my eye a lot lately is "jewelry-inspired" pieces. Embellishments on clothing have always been around, but recently I have noticed more and more how much the stones, chains, and studs on some tops and dresses resemble actual jewelry. Here, I wore my braided chain halter top. When wearing a top or dress with "heavy metal" around the neck, actual jewelry in that general area should be minimal (i.e. no necklace or earrings, or just small studs like I wore here). The same goes for other areas; for example, embellished sleeves should be worn without bracelets or watches.

What do you think about "jewelry-inspired" clothing?

I was wearing:
Turquoise halter top | White Bebe bodycon skirt | Silver Guess gladiator sandals | Silver Steve Madden crossbody bag

Thanks for reading!

  20. First, thanks for visiting my blog and the nice comment.

    I do like these pieces except I always wonder how HM will they be when it comes to washing. I like to dress up but at the same time not worry about what I am wearing during the day. Pieces that require special attention to wash make me a bit more concious of keeping the clothing clean. :)

  26. You have gorrrrgeous eyes. They seem to pop right off the screen.
    Not in a gross way.
    That sounded weird.
