blame it on the real housewives

I'm currently obsessing over big, over the top, statement necklaces (some are also known as bib necklaces). While the style has been out for a few seasons I'm finally catching on to the craze due to excessive reality TV show watching, especially Real Housewives of Orange County.

(Gretchen Rossi) 

I think adding one of these statement necklace to your outfit not only makes it pop, but makes it look expensive too! (Major plus when you're like me and you can't afford real jewelry because you lose it all the time) The best part about these necklaces is you can find them anywhere, from high quality ones at Nordstrom to cheap and cheerful at Forever 21. 

Here are some of my favorites:

"Double Flat Stone Necklace", Charlotte Russe, $6.50

"Silver Flower Bib Necklace", Claire's,  $12.50

"Fiorella floral bib necklace" Nordstrom (Kate Spade New York) $248.00 

Way expensive, but so cute.

"Splattered Bead Necklace" Nordstrom (St. John Collection) $345.00

"Teardrop Collar Necklace" Forever 21, $7.80

Frugal Fashionista Note: Looks very similar to the Nordstroms necklace above! But for wayyy less, I actually just got this one from forever yesterday :) 

"Jewel Cascade Necklace" Forever 21, $9.80

"Teardrop Bead Necklace" Forever 21, $6.80

Would look so cute with a plain white sundress and gold sandals! 

Now go watch some trashy reality TV and get inspired!
