Is it too early to think about what I want for Christmas? Because I’ve fallen in love with these necklaces.

Whilst perusing the internet for some exciting fashion news I came across the fashion blog What’s Wrong With The Zoo, and a post featuring these necklaces caught my eye. They are all available on Etsy but some are very pricey, one of the beaded necklaces costs $2700!

Statement necklaces are a great way to accessorise an outfit, and some bold and interesting designs have been seen on the catwalk this year from Marc Jacobs, Dolce & Gabbana and Chanel to name just a few. The necklaces have been all shapes, sizes, colours and materials, with stones, beads and thick metal chains being popular choices in this year’s autumn/winter collections.

I better make sure I’m good for the rest of the year!

Summer Trend – Ripped Denim

Denim has featured quite a lot on the catwalks this year, both in the men’s and women’s collections, with Vogue saying “where denim’s concerned, anything goes.” It can be baggy, skinny, pale or dark; as long as it’s denim it doesn’t matter.

Ripped denim has been especially popular in Spring/Summer 2009 collections from designers such as Balmain, Dolce & Gabbana (both below) and Christopher Kane. I also love the ‘rock-chic’ Spring/Summer 2009 collection from Evil Twin which features some great ripped denim boyfriend shorts.

Celebrities such as Lily Allen, Victoria Beckham and Nicole Richie have also been seen wearing the style.

I think less is more with this style, even if it’s only for the reason that summer will soon be over and I imagine that the jeans could get pretty breezy with too many holes. At least the look can easily be achieved with a bit of D.I.Y. and a cheap pair of jeans, and it would suit this season’s biker glam style.

What do you think? Does this style look good or does it just look messy?
