Edgy Feminine (and small giveaway)

** I used random.org 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 PetiteLittleGirl.com (CLOSED)


To enter:
- LYLIF Clothing on Facebook and leave a comment on how you will style the piece (mandatory).
- Additional entries can be entered by following LYLIF Clothing on Twitter and tweet this.
- Giveaway is for US Domestic readers only and will end on March 3. Thanks to LYLIF Clothing for sponsoring this giveaway!

Good luck, everyone!
Sydney

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!

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.

SS said...

Viviane said...

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

Ashley @ Apparel Addiction said...

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

SewPetiteGal said...

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 said...

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

Sydney's Fashion Diary said...

@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.

smunteanu said...

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 :-)

pbear said...

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.

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! http://tinaseverydaystyle.blogspot.com/

djoelia said...

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.

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.

Tina said...

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.

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!
