Style enthusiasts all over are rocking the statement necklace trend in bold bright colors. You can dress up even the simplest of outfits with a statement necklace. Add a bold lipcolor for an icing on the cake effect. Or go with nude lips and let the necklace speak without words. I did both. Very captivating! Hello FI readers, welcome back!

An array of colorful gemstones make up this trendy, covetable statement necklace, a gift from Takai By Angela. From the beautiful packaging, to the very intricate details, this necklace packs a powerful punch. Just like a dream and I do dream in color, hehe. The best part is that it comes with matching equally dreamy earrings. As a big chested gal, I prefer my necklaces not to lay directly over the girls so the length of this one of a kind piece was just perfect. I fell in love with the colorful blossoms and I’ve thought of multiple ways to style this fab piece. 

If you are a girl that enjoys the pretty things in life and most of us are, I urge you to stop by Takai By Angela and shop the breathtaking selection of chic and trendy items on display. Each piece is very carefully handcrafted and appears to tell a story, a beautiful story. There are designs at Takai By Angela to suit every style from simple to over the top and they all have one thing in common. Each piece is strikingly beautiful, very rich and will make any and every plain outfit into a memorable one. What I know for sure? From this crystal glass set to this emerald topaz set, you will consider every piece at Takai By Angela a must have. Grab them while they are available. Get ready to turn heads and drop jaws. Enjoy the ooooohs and ahhhhhs from admirers and thank me later, ;). 

The rule of thumb with statement pieces like this is to pair them with something simple in a solid color preferably and have them remain the star of the look. Much as I love a LBD and thought it’d be great with the jewelry, I wore a black turtle neck top aka blank canvas (hehe) instead so this stand out piece still popped. I paired it with this amazing statement skirt with a long train that would get heads turning. Designed by you guessed it, Fausto Puglisi. Very unique. What's not to love? The blues from the necklace picked up the blue from the skirt and the color block mini bag. To ward off the early evening chill and add interest, I threw on a fur collar in a subtle gray color that was not competing with the necklace but framed and showcased it even more. 

Your thoughts? I say glam, chic, girly, all at once…

  25. I absolutely love statement jewelry & constantly in search of new stores that sell them. Thanks for introducing me to a new shop. I just checked their collection, everything looks great! I personally too love pairing them up with a simple plain color to let the necklace do all the talking. Love the post & as usual you look picture perfect & I guess that explains why all your pictures are so perfect too.
