My Cyber Monday Pick

November 28, 2011 at 10:58 AM 5 comments

On this Cyber Monday, I have a suggestion for where you should shop: History and Industry.  As I wrote about in this post, Irene Wood, a very talented artist and jewelry designer has created a new line of statement necklaces.  In her new line she is inspired by accessories of ancient Greco-Roman, Egyptian and African royalty.  Such inspiration calls for dramatic statement pieces, bold colors and natural elements for materials. I have the Katherine necklace (love the name); it goes with everything and is that extra touch that makes every outfit.

Since the necklace arrived, I’ve worn it every day.  I kid you not.  The necklace is also very light weight so you can wear it every day easily. To give you a feel for the necklace, I thought I’d share the outfits from this past weekend (keep in mind I was living out of a suitcase again so there will be some repeats).  I def. look awkward in most of the photos as I’m still not used to pictures of just myself, even though I’m very much a ham.

Thanksgiving Dinner –

Friday Christmas tree cutting –

Saturday night out…

Sunday errands…

Luckily, the necklace arrived the day that we were going out with friends.  When I wore it, my girlfriend’s loved it so much that I thought I’d snap their photos in it and show how versatile it is with any outfit:

I told you I have incredibly fashionable friends.   I would really, really encourage you to think of snatching up a necklace.  I’m not the only one sending her praises; her necklace line has been on Daily Candy,, and Cool Hunting.  You can purchase her necklaces through her shop: or London-based Culture Label,, or New York-based Fashion Stake which carries several exclusive pieces.  Happy shopping!!

    I’m not sure I even knew it was called the Katherine necklace. It’s awesome! Love the photo shoutout and Irene’s work. Can’t wait to spend some time on her site today! It really works with all of your outfits too, that’s not always the case with a statement piece. Merry Christmas to this Katherine?

    I seriously love your fashion posts! Keep ’em coming! Good to know the necklace is lightweight – I usually don’t wear my jewelry that’s heavy (that includes earrings).
