Making a Statement

I’ve noticed that Anna Wintour, Editor in Chief of Vogue, has taken to wearing her gorgeous gemstone Georgian collet necklaces in stacks, which I just love. They are rumored to be from the renowned jeweler S.J. Phillips Ltd. in London and cost approximately $20,000 a pop.

Do not even get me started on this insanely gorgeous (and sequined!) Chanel suit. That navy blue against a backdrop of red roses? I’m dying! Photo by Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty Images North America.

All of this means Anna is the perfect candidate to be part of the post “How I Wear My: Statement Necklace” that my friend Adrienne of The Rich Life (on a budget) and I have planned for January 3, 2012. Why don’t you channel a little of Anna’s glamour and send Adrienne or me a photo of yourself in your statement necklace? We’d love to include your and your blog in all this elegant fun.

The style if your necklace is quite similar to Anna's. Now all you need is that spectacular navy sequined suit...I'm drooling over it!

I am looking forward to our first "How I Wear My..." post of 2012. It's going to be a fun one! xoxo, A

Hi Adrienne, Nerida makes these necklaces in the Georgian collet style, she's a big fan of Anna's jewelry too. What I learned about collet necklaces I learned from her. I can't wait for this post, I am curious to see what necklaces everyone wears! XO, Jill

Jill, you're right....that suit she's wearing is AMAZING! A work of art! I'm also totally feeling your necklace....I can see you stacking a few statement necklaces yourself! Hugs! ~Serene

Hi Serene! How were your holidays? I have to stop by your blog and see what you are up to. Do you want to join us for January 3 with a statement necklace of your own? As for Anna's suit, I'm just dying, it is so gorgeous, and I wonder if she knew there would be a red rose backdrop and that's why she chose that wonderful blue. The colors look amazing together. XO, Jill

Madison my dear how are you? I need to stop by your blog and see what you are doing. I hope your holidays were good. I think this is one of my favorite Chanel suits ever. Right? Happy 2012! XO, Jill

oh yeah! I'm with you on the sequined Chanel outfit - dying too! I'll have to do a statement necklace post for you - I have to say though that all my statement necklaces are of the much cheaper costume jewelry variety than Ms Wintours!
