Accessories Report

I know from experience that an easy way to add some pizzazz to a plain and simple outfit is with a pop of color. The pops can be in anything from a patterned shirt to a silky scarf tied around your purse. The most common way to add a pop of color to your outfit is by wearing a colorful accessory. Even though my closet is color coded, the majority of my tops range in shades of white, cream, black and gray. If your closet is similar its not a problem. It just means you can have more fun with your accessory choices.

When I spotted this week's Fashionista I could tell she was having some fun by the necklace she was wearing. A stunning statement necklace complimented her almost monochromatic ensemble, but I didn't choose to feature this Fashionista just because her necklace was making a statement. I've written about statement necklaces on here before and this piece goes above and beyond. Yes, it's a statement, but it's also the shimmery colors that caused this necklace to be recognized. 

I love how the iridescent sparkles of the lavender stones catch the sunlight. It makes the H&M necklace glimmer on this Fashionista's chest. This effect makes the necklace brighten up the rest of this Fashionista's black on black outfit. The neckpiece also helps tie in her light purple blazer. While on her way to an interview, the shimmery stones on this necklace give her outfit a playful look but still show off that this Fashionista knows how to accessorize. 

Spotted: Shimmery stone necklaces were seen at the Anna Sui spring 2013 ready-to-wear runway show.
