Statements Made Easy

I've said it once and I'll say it again; I love the fact that designers are now including statement necklaces pre-sewn onto shirts/sweaters. It makes getting dressed so much easier. Why fret over what necklace to wear when you can have it attached to your ensemble and ready to go?

This striped sweater, the J. Crew crystal necklace sweater, even advertises this fact in the name. It is currently sold out online, but perhaps it is still available in stores. I paired the sweater with a "chic" white pencil skirt from the J. Crew factory. The chicness of this skirt has diminished some and it is now not so white after William jumped on me with his muddy paws this afternoon. So my "chic" pencil skirt is currently balled up in my "to be dry cleaned" pile. I guess this is one of the problems with wearing white and having a dog.

While taking these pictures my husband, in a mocking tone, referred to my sweater as "bedazzled glory." Well, I rather like being bedazzled, especially when it's as easy as pie!
