Edgy Feminine (and small giveaway)

Pin It
** I used and the winner is Bhav (#38). I just sent you an email. Thank you everyone for entering!**

From time to time, I do think about what my style consisted of and what do I need to improve. If I were to point out my biggest style weakness, it certainly would be accessories. I find that I don't reach for accessories as much as I want to. Sometimes, it's because of my laziness and sometimes, it's just lack of variety. This year, one of my style resolutions is to start accessorizing more.

While browsing LYLIF Clothing's site a couple of weeks ago, I immediately drawn to this Piercing Points statement necklace. The necklace itself is perfect if you want something just a bit edgy but not over the top. That's exactly why I paired this necklace with my crotchet skirt - to add a touch of edge to a feminine outfit. My solid-color blouse provides the perfect backdrop to showcase this beautiful necklace. The right statement necklace is a quick and easy way to punch up your outfit.

What I am wearing:
Blouse: H&M - size 2 (buy similar - available in 00P)
Skirt: Ann Taylor - size 00P (buy similar - available in XXS)
Necklace: Piercing points statement necklace c/o LYLIF Clothing
Shoes: Gucci mid-heel leather pumps (buy similar)
Watch: Michael Kors 5128 in rose gold

LYLIF Clothing is an online store that offers affordable women's clothing and accessories. They have a great selection of fashion jewelry. There are so many great pieces that it was hard for me to pick just one. If you're looking for trendy accessories to spice up your outfits, I highly recommend you check them out. Now, here's the fun part! They have generously offered to giveaway this beautiful necklace to one lucky reader of (CLOSED)

The Little Dust Princess

I love this outfit and that necklace! I wish they shipped to Canada!


You look gorgeous, and that necklace is so fun!

I think I'd style this with a clean white dress and make the necklace center of attention. Maybe a shift dress. Paired with a pair of simple black pumps!

I love bright colors mixed with cream, what a great outfit!


Love your look....AMAZING. xxx


The necklace is really pretty! It looks great paired against the crochet skirt and the bright orange shirt. I'm the same way with accessories too - I'm usually too lazy to dig around for them in the mornings.


Such a unique & beautiful necklace! Love it on you!


wear over with all black polyester blouse and a gold sequin skirt.


I would style it with a solid colored sleeveless/summer dress, preferably turquoise or emerald green, or a lemon yellow

The necklace is unique. You did a wonderful job styling the necklace. I like that your outfit is feminine and edgy.


Such a fun piece! I love that you paired it with a lace skirt! :)


you look gorgeous!

I lack accessories too. Am also trying to get better at this.

Cute necklace. Looks great with that shirt.


With a collared shirt! :]

Love this necklace! I liked on FB. I'd style this necklace with a black blazer, white tee, jeans, and black pumps.

The Tiny Heart


I'd pair this necklace with a simple white blouse and skinny jeans (and pumps!).

Ashley @ Apparel Addiction

I would pair it with a girly dress to add a little edge!


I love your orange H&M blouse! You paired this necklace very nicely - looks beautiful in your ensemble!

BTW, if you haven't tried it - I really enjoyed Pochi Tea Station. The Milk Tea with regular pudding (Asian pudding, not American) was very good!

cosmetic junction

Thank you so much for this post. I have a beige (leaning towards yellow) long maxi skirt...with lace details. Any pairing suggestions??


@The Little Dust Princess Let me know if I can help out.

@SewPetiteGal Thank you for letting me know. It sounds delish. I have to try it soon.

@cosmetic junction If you're not afraid of bold colors, I would pair yellow with cobalt blue. I have always wanted to try that combo but don't have any yellow pieces in my closet =) Thanks for stopping by.


I LOVE LYLIF! and I love this giveaway, the necklace is so fierce! I have the perfect lbd to wear with it.


I follow LYLIF on twitter as well and tweeted the giveaway.



I love this outfit. I have a white lace skirt and am always wondering what to wear with it. I like LYIF on facebook too :-)


I would either style it with a dark blouse or a gold/nude toned blouse since the necklace itself has the beautiful contrast of black and gold.

Just perfect! J'adore the whole outfit!

I love the outfit and I'd probably style the necklace as you have since I need help in accessorizing too :). I've liked LYLIF on FB.

I tweeted this!/lisacng/status/172054711405527041 and it's not a small giveaway at all! It's great! TKS!

You look like you are totally ready for Spring! I feel you about the accessorizing. I'm a lazy bum and just keep accessorizing to the minimum. I love that lace skirt on you! It looks so feminine and looks like it could go with absolutely anything and instantly dress up an outfit!


I like LYIF on FB as Jo Sue.

I would wear this with a red T, black trench and jeans!

just tututiny

such a gorgeous necklace. I think I would pair it with my mint blouse and peach leather skirt for the Spring time ;)


Love the skirt :)




love the necklace, I will pair it with bright pink shirt and olive moto jacket, with black colored jean and black pump. This necklace will give the "oomph" to the outfit.


I love the black and gold--so chic!

I think I'd pair it with a simple black dress and with black pumps.

Black & Gold all the way...I would style this with black sweater wrap with faux fur collar and black and gold brocade skirt with opaque tights and black suede pumps or black leather booties. Gold earrings and bangle to complement necklace.


I'd like to enter! Just liked them on facebook (Tina Lin). Since the necklace is already a statement piece, I would keep the rest of my outfit neutral and pair this with a little black dress and classic patent black or nude pumps.

Julie Khuu

Liked! I'd love to see this piece styled with graphic extras like a striped b/w tee and some waxed denim...Such a badass piece to add to my growing collection! Thanks for the giveaway!

Peace. Love. LOL!
