The Necklace selection for your stunning look and feel this season

Long time no selection – I know, I know, but as there’s always an excuse let me just mention that we pretty much moved into a new place and there were 3 weeks in a row hard day’s arrangement nights before getting into the apartment shape we really love and would like to share with you. Stay tuned for before/after pics pretty soon.

Talking about the spring and the beloved summer there’s always been an accessory which could carry out your unexceptionable look & feel for the whole season – the Necklace. The best thing about it is that most often it’s a subject of DIY process, where you can truly express yourself by assembling all kind of pieces, colors and materials, found in the dusty, long time forgotten loft or closet. Whatever you come up with, just make sure that this season you will model something XXL, noticeable from a mile – that’s what the tendencies and your personality demand.

Your inspiration is here on KickStyle with By Now option for all lazy, Pret-a-Porte persons:
