Where: Finished writing up my last essay for class and celebrated by watching a movie with my boyfriend :)

For the 5th day of my eBay obsession challenge, I decided to start using some of the many unique looking accessories that I have scored through eBay, starting with this colorful bib necklace! I was very hesitant in buying this piece because its much bigger and bolder than what I usually wear in terms of accessories; but after thinking about it I decided it was worth the risk. I'm so happy I got it! I know its not everyone's cup of tea, but it has flowers and lots of colors which = total happiness for me :)

I decided to let this unique piece be the center of attention of today's outfit by wearing it with a simple and fresh white dress. I also went with green shoes to play off the green leaves in the necklace. I just love the way the necklace pops against the white dress, it really makes a statement!

Do you have any pieces that make a bold statement? How do you wear them?

Here are all the ways in which I've worn this white dress:

  1. I think it's great you've worn that necklace with white as it is such a stand out piece on its own you wouldn't want to over-do it with too much other colours.

  2. You are wonderful how you do what makes you happy. It adds to a more interesting world. The 7th pic down..your face and hair look so beautiful and elegant. Even with that pretty necklace, your beautiful radiant face always does the talking! jgm

  3. the necklace is too cute, but i cant get over how much i love the simplicity of this white summer dress!

  4. I love the earrings, too. So simple, but happy!

  5. I love that white dress - I'd never be able to wear it - im such a mucky pup ;P
