I actually wore this dress 2 ways, but THIS WAY was much more MY STYLE!  Since the pocket emblem reads “COCO”, I immediately envisioned layers and layers of pearl necklaces.  Why wear ONE when you can wear FIVE?!  More is MORE!  Less is a bore!  I recently heard that phrase and I guess that’s what happened with this outfit!

Anyhow, this “dress” is a bit short.  With the length, it should probably be called a tunic!  It made us good use of my over-the-knee boots.

The Style Rx:  Layer on the necklaces for a dramatic look!  BTW, Forever 21 has AMAZING costume jewelry if you’re on a budget.  I have some fabulous pearl necklaces from them.  They are great as fillers mixed in with my real necklaces. 

Do you layer your necklaces?  What is your max?  And are you a more is MORE person?

  1. That dress look so good on you! Love it with the boots! I always have trouble layering larger necklaces (I don’t have many) but I do layer small ones
    Can’t wait to see the other way you styled it

      Oh girl, I probably go OVER BOARD with layering large necklaces!! TOO MUCH! LOL! But I think that layered smaller necklaces are also very elegant!

      Well, I’m not sure about posting the other look – it was with booties and the dress looks REALLY SHORT – I MEAN TOO SHORT (the look was from back in April when it’s wasn’t so cold)!! If I get brave, I may do it!

    Such an awesome way to wear this cute little dress Sam! :)

    The gold and pearl accessories are perfect with it – and while it’s ‘more’ it’s not too much, if you know what I mean? It’s fantastic! :)
