Holiday Necklaces

The holidays are upon! Whether we are ready or not Christmas is 14 days away. Let me repeat: 14 DAYS! How did this happen? As we inch closer and closer, friends and companies are hosting their holiday parties. These events create a new dilemma about what to wear and my favorite problem: accessories! (See my About me to see how I feel about accessories). I love a good necklace. I would go as far as to say I may have a problem:

Hello, my name is Meg and I am addicted to buying necklaces. So I decided to pick out some of my favorite statement and delicate necklaces to wear to your holiday extravaganzas. Typically I buy the majority of my statement necklaces from Primp or Target. They do a fantastic job of picking unique pieces for low cost. Most of them are between $16-$25 which ain't too shabby! The price is not only nice for your wallet but does not make me feel guilty buying an uber trendy piece and wanting to get rid of it in six months.  Overall, I prefer to buy from small boutiques. I like the idea of having something distinctive, which is easier to access when buying from some of the Twin Cities more fashionable small businesses.

Here are a few of my favorite statement pieces:

Nice selection! I'm definitely more in the 'delicate' camp - I'd wear any of those! :)
