Bibalicious!

Despite the prevalence of oversize earrings on the runways, the bib necklace has not disappeared from view; rather, it is being honed and polished to a fabulous sheen!

i love this look so much because it can easily be translated to everyday wear--throw a turquoise bib necklace on and poof! your tank top and linen skirt suddenly became more fun and chic :-)

Gabbi said...

Gorgeous and inspiring! Thank you dear CC... xo

Those are really beautiful. Especially the turquoise one. It's a shame that they would make my neck look like Hulk Hogan's though.

I love the Lanvin crystal flower necklace. i borrowed the most beautiful baccarat multi-strands flower necklace from a friend once, and it was gorgeous.

Fashion Moment said...

Great selection, darling! I love Lanvin crystal, Christian Lacroix, Marc Jacobs and Viktor & Rolf!

I love great necklaces and they are getting bigger and better! The Jason Wu piece is my favorite, but I also love the Marc Jacobs piece and the Malin lace is beautiful.

I like the look but have found that, in reality, people tend to wear those for one season. Don't know why.

Ariella said...

The josephine collar necklace is so lovely! I'm usually not a fan of big necklaces, but the collar-shaped ones are really pretty.

Cindiddy said...

haha bibalicious!!!!!i never know how to wear those big necklaces.... i got a ton of them too!

Eri said...

There are some good ideas for DIY...

ZombieLace said...

Are they bibs? Are they necklaces? Who cares! They are utterly amazing. I really like the thick rope of beads with a huge sparkly broach thing attaching them. I might find a way to copy that in the future! Thanks for always posting awe-inspiring fads for me to drool over/mimic :~)

Ooh the fuchsia Nervous system necklace is lovely! You know I'm always a sucker for fuchsia. ;)

I love the title of this post! Beautiful picks!

Bella said...

I'm wondering if I could actually pull this off... it's powerful but versatile enough to incorporate into something far more casual.

I'm inspired! xxx

Camille said...

These are priceless! I love these organic, ethnic inspired styles.

Hey Carrie!

Thanks it's one of my favorite vests! I love so many of these necklaces! They are so artistic. I especially love the first on in the third row. It's so Grecian!

XOXO!

Erika said...

Necklaces are a necessity to me, and I'm slowly falling in love with the bib necklace. I saw an amazing white one on Shopbop just the other day. It's almost tribal looking. :)

MISS GLITZY said...

Hey, gorgeous CC!

I love this post. It speaks to me at such an intimate level...lol.

I crave bib pieces (I wear tea cosies, lace nettings, etc, etc as bib necklaces ;)

furthermore the Verrier, ACB leather fringe and Kenneth Jay Lane are insanely beautiful. Ahh, also so jealous of you guys and Urban Outfitters...shame on their no shipping policy to Australia!

Haha, hope you're having a lovely week gorgeous ;)
