Happy 2011! I hope everyone had a fun and safe New Year's celebration. I personally spent the first half asleep at home. I passed out some time around 7-8pm (because I'm 94 years old) but I woke up at 11:30ish just in time to see the New Year arrive. My fella and I sat and watched the cars go through the road checks right outside our apartment (three people ended up getting towed). That was our exciting start to the year but we were safe and warm and not being towed away so I was pleased as punch. I haven't thought of any New Year's resolutions yet; I feel like I'm just kidding myself when I do but I suppose it never hurts to try to better yourself. One thing I really hope to accomplish this year is to buy a house ...which I guess means saving and scrimping and begging and pleading??? If it does happen and I FINALLY get a house then my year will be complete! So in the spirit of saving money I thought we could all do something extravagant window shopping and take in some beautiful necklaces from the oh-so-fancy Bergdorf Goodman's.
I'm including this one because if I was rich I would buy this for my Ma. She loves this fun chunky jewelry which I can't really pull off but I live vicariously through her fearless style.

These bib style necklaces are such an easy way to dress up a plain shirt. I see them everywhere in all sorts of styles. You can just interchange them over otherwise slightly boring shirts and suddenly they're dressy and bedazzled!
Stone Bib Necklace
Remember a couple years back when turquoise was all the rage in jewelry? I don't know much about trends, it could still very well be a big hit. It's an extremely bold color which reminds me so much of warm weather and beach side living.

Stone Pendant Necklace
I'm crazy about this charcoal and gold colored necklace. It has such a nice natural tone to it but is still really glitzy and sparkly. Is it weird to be head over heels in love with the color gray? It's just so versatile and purdy.
Round Gypsy Enhancer
When I first saw this I thought it was a bracelet but this is actually a funky coral necklace. I really love coral as a color for accessories. It's such a vibrant hit of flash. The different beads and layering of this piece had me gaga right away.

Twisted Coral Bead Necklace
I thought this super simple quartz necklace was so sweet looking. A dainty gold chain and a neutral pendant are such good staples for pairing with different outfits and dressing up or down. All these pieces are over $500 but you can find so many versions of these styles at regular people stores to duplicate the look without worrying about losing your house when the credit card bill comes.

Do you have a fave style of jewelry to wear when you want to feel fancy? Do you like to keep it simple or have fun with it? I'm also really interested to hear what your New Year's resolution are!
