Making A Statement

Lately I am wearing a lot of statement necklaces.  This one was a gift from my younger sisters and is from Panama.  Green isn’t a color I wear a ton of, but I am really drawn to the the tribal feel of it…

What is your go to accessory these days?

Halloween is for dressing up.  Often there are scary elements to these looks.

But what about the rest of the year?!  What if I want to strike fear into the hearts of my neighbors in January or May?
