Accessories actually make the outfit. I always wear them. I can't leave home without some kind of accessory attached to me.

I loooove that cluster necklace. I don't wear necklaces as much b/c my earrings are usually very big and dramatic but I can't leave the house without any accessories on. Have a happy hump day!

I adore many of the pieces shown. Unfortunately, I can't wear costume jewelry because I have ultra sensitive skin.

After losing some memorable and expensive jewelry, I've been wearing costume jewelry and really enjoying it. If I lose or it break it I don't feel that bad and the prices are usually good. With that said I love the Armani necklace.
