Love the necklace! on of my resolutions is to be more feminine but edgy, so i would wear something very feminine, like a floral dress/blazer/ boots combo.

current runway look obsession: christian Dior white dress <3

Hey Jessica!
Ah, no worries -- I know I wrote quite a lot haha, I just had so much to say!
Can the description of the outfit be a LONG sentence? ;)

Anyway, a second try:
1. Already following
2. As I said before, I would wear the zip chain necklace my favourite DKNY JEANS black skinny jeans with an acid-wash, burnt-out tank top (maybe from Urban Outfitters), a long, dark emerald green, merino wool cardigan (maybe from Gap, Topshop or Zara), battered Doc Martens (average 8-holes) and either a black, leather studded satchel or the Proenza Schouler PS1 in navy suede -- all of this highlights upon dark, punk-rocker, edgy themes with subtle variations of black (with the dark emerald and navy) whilst still being on trend.

My e-mail is chloetam_@hotmail.com

Also, contrary to the outfit described above, I would have to say that one of my most enjoyed runway collections would have to be Burberry Prorsum S/S '10 RTW.
http://www.logicalharmony.net/burberry-prorsum-spring-2010-ready-to-wear/
I just love all the soft, powdery colours involved in Burberry's RTW '10 collection, it's all so elegant and beautiful! I love nude colours and I adore the alteration to the classic Burberry trench -- as well as this, I really like the intricacy of the ruffle details. For once, 'RTW' has actually applied to this Spring collection because the outfits are very wearable and not too OTT like other collections in the past. It is definitely one of the strongest I've seen this year and I would count myself lucky to own any piece from the Burberry Prorsom S/S '10 collection!

3. SUBMIT

Thanks again :) (I know I write loads, it's becoming a problem, haha)

2. I would wear this necklace with my favorite v-neck tee from forever 21 and my new black and blue striped skirt from forever 21 with leggings and my $9 fioni heels, because this is currently my favorite outfit, but i dont have a truly beautiful handmade necklace like that that would compliment it as well as the zipper necklace may.

Jess ♡ said...

God I LOVE YOUR DYI's, clearly you need to teach me a thing or two.

1. Followwwwwwwwing :)

2. In all honesty I would wear the necklace with everything, but since we have to pick one outfit mine would be: Forever 21 Twist Skirt (that has a GIANT BOW), satin tee, thigh-high socks, oxfords, and finally your lovely necklace add a bit of edge into my look.

Emilie said...

Hey Jessica.
Lovely loveliy necklace. I would probably wear it with a black tank, skinny jeans & raw ankelboots, or for party use a black pencil dress and some badass stiletoes.
My currently favorite runway look must be a look from Lavins ss 10 rtw collection, which is also a good example of Scandinavian fashion, -where i come from. http://www.style.com/fashionshows/complete/slideshow/S2010RTW-LANVIN?event=show1982&designer=design_house54&trend=&iphoto=16

1. Following!

2. I would wear this necklace with my mohair poncho with gold zipper detailing, my Vivienne Westwood brooch and my black patent leather studded shoes.

3. My e-mail is: luxlagerfeld@gmail.com. As for a current runway look that I adore, Alexander McQueen's Spring 2010 collection blew me away. Those shoes!!!! The dresses were so intricate and had amazing detaling. http://www.elle.com/Runway/Ready-to-Wear/Spring-2010-RTW/ALEXANDER-MCQUEEN/ALEXANDER-MCQUEEN

I would wear your pulchritudinous necklace with my simple white tweed dress that has embroidered, creme-colored, floral embellishments along the waistline, a black motorcycle jacket with cap sleeves and ruffles along the collar and sleeves to give it a more feminine approach, black heels with ornate zippers to add cohesiveness to the outfit with your necklace; I would also wear several, simple pearl bracelets to add a more feminine approach but still make your necklace the main focal point; overall I think this outfit would have an edgy approach with the black zipper heels, your necklace, and motorcycle jacket, yet have a nice contrast with the white tweed dress (with the floral embroidering, the embroidering is very subtle and subdued but still adds a little bit more to the outfit) and ruffles along the leather jacket, and pearls to lay as a nice backdrop to your edgier, VERY attractive necklace, and, most importantly, I would wear this look with confidence, because confidence, to any outfit, is key.

If you go to the link above and click see entire slideshow, skip to look 31 and that's my favorite. I love how Williamson was able to create a structural frock with broad shoulders (created w/ sequins) yet softened it and made it more feminine with the vibrant colors and playful sequins. Surely something I wish I had, someday, someday...

PS: sorry if my entry's a little too long, I like to write with passion and dignity, and nothing less.

1.But of course i'm already following missy :)

2.I would want to bring the focus to the necklace, so wear it with a high waisted black bandeau skirt so the line hits just where the necklace finishes, then wear a light shoulder padded floaty blouse, with my spotted black tights and black platform ankle boots so you have that tailored fit with the loose blouse and edgy necklace and ankle boots...a combination ;)

3. I would say Burberry Possum but i'm sure that would of been said because that is BEAUTIFUL but i as well am in love with Derek Lam's Spring 2010 collection..
http://www.fabsugar.com/4950032
The collection has a theme throughout of what seems the waist and legs. The majority of the pieces clinch in at the waist or have detail around it which automatically draws your eyes to it. I love to flaunt the legs and waist because i think it defines a woman and his ability to do so with a 40's theme is amazingly beautiful.
