styling my boho fringe necklace

At as GOLD as it gets we believe that life’s adventures should be fully accessorized! I love finding pieces that dress up my wardrobe and make it seem new and fresh on a budget.

It’s also a great place to pick up small gifts for your girlfriends or yourself! I’ve been shopping here for years and one thing that I love about Urban Peach is they have items that are really trendy at the moment.
How many times have you had to wait to find an affordable piece that rivals the on-trend piece? This is where you should be checking because they constantly introduce new pieces that are right on trend. From someone who tends to turn faux gold jewelry, their pieces hold up really nicely for costume jewely. I really want to try some of their watches next!

I styled this boho fringe necklace for the office  but I can’t wait to style it with a white shirt and jean shorts for the weekend.

I love this necklace because it has a hint of a boho/care-free feel but really looks chic enough to wear to the office. It also comes in turquoise and white if thats more your coloring! urban peach boho fringe necklace | as GOLD as it gets BLOG

turquoise slab necklace + a dirty little secret

I wanted a turquoise slab necklace for a really long time. I wanted it to have a little variation in length, large slabs with texture and needed it to look glam, not southwest. It took me SO long to find the perfect one…I’m talking about 2 years! Well once I got this gem (ha!) I was so excited to wear it and I just KNEW I would get so many compliments because it was exactly what I had been looking for… turquoise slab necklace But you know what. No one compliments it. NO ONE. I couldn’t figure out…like can they not see these gorgeous slabs that I searched for? Are they so dazzled by the words coming out of my mouth they can’t see my necklace? And I realized that I don’t really care. Which is hard because I want people to like me and think I have nice things and if I’m honest I want people to want what I have. Isn’t that so ugly? Yikes!  This necklace has taught me a lot. And not that I REALLY like it paired with hot pink (which I do). But having nice things is lovely but you need to spend money (and time) investing in things that you really like; don’t just do them for others. I wear this necklace all the time (it also looks great with navy) and this necklace actually brings me a lot of joy even if it doesn’t result in compliments because it took a lot of effort to find exactly what I wanted but it also reminds me to do things or buy things because I want too – not for the reactions of others.

In case you like the necklace and happen to be on the hunt for one I bought mine on Etsy here. If you need apothecary jars check out these and these.
