Hello and welcome to the 2014 start of the continuing Magnificent 7th Challenge!
We will be posting on the 7th of each month, and the aim of the challenge is to create an outfit to fit the theme, using clothes from our wardrobes, and yes that does mean digging deep into the depths and finding those long lost clothes! Hopefully one of us won’t end up in Narnia, but you never know with a bloggers wardrobe!
This month’s theme is the New Year. I didn’t manage to get a proper photograph of myself in my New Year’s Eve dress (the cartoon print dress from Sorrento Clothing by the way) although I did of course seem to manage the obligatory selfie!
What I have decided to talk about instead is my New Year fashion resolution that I made. Accessories and jewellery.
I have never been somebody that has been particularly good in putting jewellry together with outfits and adding those extra touches that just pulls everything together. The perfect statement necklace, the earrings to add the final sparkle, the hair accessory that finishes the outfit, I am useless.
Over the last couple of months I have been buying lots of statement necklaces and you have probably seen a few on my blog posts and via Instagram. I thought that I would show you a few of my favourites.
The necklaces have been bought everywhere from +Dorothy Perkins to +Primark online to charity shops and Etsy. I've found a real love for necklaces that I didn't have before and think that they really add to your outfit, often spicing up a boring dress into something fantastic.
Don't forget to check out the other ladies involved in the challenge! x
