Choker: EttikaXFreePeople 

 

I’m obsessed with casual jersey dresses! They’re quick to throw on and easy to dress up or down. I have turned this one in particular into multiple different looks – classic work attire with a chunky necklace and some heels, edgy/punk as appeared here, sporty with some sneakers and a hat. The options are endless with just this one piece! I love the H&M ones as well! They have turtlenecks, different designs, fits and fabrics in their basics section. I went with the bulky booties to go with this Ettika Choker, because it’s very bold and I really wanted that to be my main emphasis.

This star-studded choker was created by Ettika for Free People, and comes in multiple colors and materials. I love this black one in particular because of the velvet straps, as velvet is so in right now! It’s unique, and the multiple layers leave room for different styles of wear. You can wear it looser or tighter to change the look of it – sometimes I even cross the order of the layers to give it a more messy vibe!

Ettika X Revolve 


 

 

I recently received this beautiful choker from Ettika, and was extremely delighted to hear the news that it is now a product for Revolve! (yaaaaaay, Ettika!!) The company fell as much in love with the piece as I did, and therefore it’s now available at Revolve.com.

There’s nothing I can say I dislike about this piece. I was skeptical if I would like the tassel part and really be able to wear it with anything at first, for I felt it was very western looking, but with this gorgeous mustard H&M blouse (similar here) and a pair of jean shorts, it looked anything but western! It was festival, boho chic and looked so casual on my dinner date. I‘ve realized that regardless of my skepticism, this is a great piece for many different outfits! For instance, a denim on denim ensemble or a black dress with some gladiators, it’s can be rocked on more occasions than I imagined! A good piece of jewelry really changes the entire look of an outfit; I’ve learned this through my experience with Ettika altogether thus far.

Now, this is me being extremely picky, but after all this is a review and I’m being as honest as possible. The only slight disadvantage with some of Ettika‘s chokers is how hard they are to put on. The chain to hook into has very tiny loops and then bigger loops throughout, so you can clip into the bigger loops. But, it just so happens that no bigger loop fits the size of my neck. So I’ve had to find a way to fit the clip through a small hole, after much exhaustion. But, if I do clip it on the closest loop to fitting, it does rest lower on my neck but still has the choker look, as well as looks good.

Regardless, Ettika continues to amaze me.

Ettika X The Style Studies…

I’ve yet again received another amazing piece from Ettika! The handmade designer jewelry company constantly leaves me thinking far too often about jewelry and how I will incorporate it into my daily outfits. This gold ‘Million Miles Away’ long chain necklace was created for a collection in corporation with Nordstrom, and was my best friend these past few weekends, as I wore it for days around the city, nights out with friends and for my birthday dinner paired with this gorgeous dress!

It’s beautiful in a simple way, which is why it looks great with nearly every outfit! I loved wearing it with a white halter body suit, ripped jeans and a pair of nude heels. It made it glam easily and had me feeling incredibly chic. It ends just a bit past my belly button, which is perfect for a long necklace. It has a nice bohemian flow and isn’t overwhelmingly glitzy, and therefore can be either dressed up or down. The only negative about this piece is the small gem in the center piece doesn’t seem to be set in all the way; for the price of the piece I find that this is something a bit critical. It’s not something you want to see after spending $75 – not that all pieces will come this way, but mine did. It is very unnoticeable though, and is just me being a tad picky, mind it is my job to give you the most honest review!

Overall, regardless of the minimal flaw, the piece is beautiful, effortless and timeless. Like I said, it can be worn with just about anything (as I say this I’m wearing it with a pair of black leggings and khaki tunic (; ) and it has become a critical piece to my wardrobe!

Ettika x Saks…

Hey everyone! I recently just partnered up with Ettika, a bohemian style, handmade jewelry company. As a member of their Review Team, I get to try some of their amazing pieces and share them with you! Currently the biggest trend in the accessory department is chokers, and just in time for summer and with all of the Coachella rage, Ettika have created the most beautiful, colorful beaded chokers that can be stacked and worn individually!


I got mine in this gorgeous turquoise color, but it also comes in green, orange, yellow, light pink, white and so much more. They have hundreds of different beaded and other exquisite chokers on their website.

These are perfect for every occasion, whether you’re dressing up for a night out or just going for lunch with some friends, I love mine so much I wear it almost every day! Not only that, but the chain is long enough so that if you aren’t feeling the choker style for the day, you can loosen it and wear it as a regular beaded necklace. This is a great shade of turquoise as well, and the beads are so beautiful and genuine that none of them look the same, they carry an authentic stone vibe rather than all being a solid color. This is the perfect summer piece!
