t+j Designs: Make a Statement!

I believe every woman should have a dress, pair of shoes, handbag and piece of jewelry that makes a statement.

For me it's always been multi-strand necklaces. I love them. I always think of the Egyptian Queen Cleopatra or a Greek Goddess when I see one. I think they're sassy, sexy, alluring and powerful.

When I saw this necklace on t+j's website, I told Jennifer I had to have it. I had five choices, but knew this was the one. The design of this necklace is fabulous. It has a beautiful mix of various gold links, sparkly round faux diamond accents and fabulous onyx beading in different sizes. It makes a STRONG statement.

You even feel different when you put it on. IAmXenaWarriorPrincessHearMeROAR! LOL Ok, I was having a moment! Let's move on...

So by now you're probably asking how much does all this luxurious and fabulous cost? Are you ready for this? It's only $18. Go pinch yourself! This is definitely not a dream.

I encourage all of my readers to check out t+j Designs website. It's a treasure trove of statement pieces. You will find gorgeous earrings, bracelets and necklaces that won't put a dent in your pocketbook. 

It's owned by two very beautiful, classy and smart bloggers: Tiffany of I am Style-ish and Jennifer of Red Soles and Red Wine. Here's Jen rockin' the same necklace. If you subscribe to their blogs, you know they wear a lot of their own jewelry designs in their OOTD's. That really says a lot.

To get you started t+j Designs is offering all of my readers 
15% off any regular priced merchandise! 
How SWEET is that?
The discount code is: KIMA

But that's not all...You guys, I love this necklace so much, I've decided to give one lucky US reader of my blog a chance to win one. You know I love to spread the fabulosity! But before you enter, I have a couple of questions for you. Do you think you can make a statement wearing this necklace? Can you rock it? Do you promise to blog about it if you win? I know you can...

If you're sassy and you know it and you're willing to flaunt and show it, I want YOU to enter this giveaway! Good Luck and Happy Monday!

This isn't an entry because I can't promise to do a blog post and am having an issue with GFC randomly unfollowing the blogs I'm following, but whoa, $18 is such a good price! I've been invited to lia sophia, stella & dot, etc. but I don't love the $100 price tags. Seems kind of ridiculous.

LyddieGal said...

Ohhh that necklace is gorgeous! and i've totally got my eye on that stud bangle!
