I adore how ribbon necklaces look simultaneously whimsical and elegant; kind of like a fancy DIY. The dramatic nature of this Lanvin Strass Necklace ($469, originally $935) would add decadence to my wardrobe, but even at the sale price, I can't afford it. Seriously — does it really cost that much to make this necklace?
To see the look for less,
This Forever 21 Jewels & Lace Ribbon Necklace ($7) is just as breathtaking without the crazy price tag. I can already picture the lace and jewel trim against a simple white tee for maximum contrast. Done and done.
