making a statement.

i never ever pass up a visit to the jewellery department when i'm shopping. i've spent the better half of the last 2 years looking for the perfect statement necklace. i don't mean beads and pendants - believe me i have plenty of those. i mean a neckpiece - something heavy, weighty and beautiful, something that can pull a simple outfit right out from it's comfort zone, something that will make your fashion f(r)iends go "ooh, where did you get that?" with a heavy dose of envy!

there were some fabulooous examples on the runway for SS09. i'm talking Marni, Louis Vuitton, Burberry. unfortunately, these are one of the few things that the high street just haven't been able to reproduce for the masses. who knows why... but i haven't seen any out there. someone needs to have a chat with the people at Topshop, seriously. 

London-based Hong Kong duo, Daydream Nation did some really covetable pieces for AW08 and sooo affordable compared to Marni. a little bird tells me that some selected pieces from the AW08 collection have gone on sale at Kapok... but surprisingly i'm actually more tempted to wait and see what they have in store for SS09. in the meanwhile i'll be scouring the jewellery departments as always.
