It's $150, so it has a lot of knock-offs. But that's not my issue with it. My issue with it is that it's supposed to be a statement necklace. Now, the sheer size of it makes it a statement, sure. The colors makes it a statement, true. What does not make it a statement is the fact that every girl and her sister are wearing it. When everyone starts wearing the same thing, the statement disappears and the fad shows up. I'm not a huge fan of fads.
My challenge to all you girls out there is to make a statement - a statement that really reflects who you are, that sets you apart from all the rest of the girls. Because each one of you is incredibly special and gifted and has something to offer. Get out there, out of your "Bubble," and be original. Invest a little in what you wear as your statement piece. Find something that is unique to you and make that your go-to statement. Don't fall into the trap of wearing a mass marketed item that everyone else wears as your statement. Because when you do, you just blend in.
You can totally search out a bigger, flashier piece of jewelry to wear that no one else is wearing. I make it a challenge - a game of sorts - to search through eBay and Etsy for original, one of a kind pieces that fulfill that requirement, and then I pin them on Pinterest since I don't make buying jewelry much of a priority at the moment.
I would love to see women get out there and dare to be different from the crowd in what they choose to wear. Are you one of those women?
