|Ready for the show!|
I have been a big fan of Depeche Mode since I was 15 but hadn’t been to one of their concerts in over ten years. When I heard they were coming to NYC on their current Delta Machine tour and were skipping Madison Square Garden to play instead in the new Barclays Center in Brooklyn—practically in my backyard!—there was no way I could pass up a chance to see them live.
About three days before the show my friend Nerida, who lives in Hong Kong and writes the blog Art For Interiors, sent me one of her stunning Duchessa Jewels necklaces. I had posted the neon pink necklace to the “How I Wear My” Facebook page I co-host with Adrienne as a way to promote both Duchessa Jewels and “How I Wear My: Neon”. I was beyond touched when Nerida unexpectedly sent me one! As soon as I saw it I knew exactly what I’d wear to see Depeche Mode. I paired it with a fun New York & Company striped shirt I’ve had for years, jeans, and black ankle boots.

The necklace is gorgeous—the neon pink square setting and very white Swarovski crystals pair so well together, each complimenting the other to make a really unique piece of jewelry. It definitely got looks all through the night! Head to Duchessa Jewels to see this necklace and the many others Nerida sells. They are fabulous!

As for Depeche Mode, the concert was sold out, it was the first date night with my husband in forever, and it felt like a big dance party inside the Barclays Center. Depeche Mode still sound great, btw, they may be in their early 50s but they still got it! They played a great set of old and new songs and included one I never thought I’d hear performed in concert, “But Not Tonight”. If you want to read an in-depth review visit my new friend and fellow Depeche Mode lover Cyrillynn, who wrote about seeing them in San Diego on her blog Any Second Now (named for a Depeche Mode song!).
