I'm obsessed with creating big, beautiful messes to drape around your neck...
Statement necklaces have always been one of my favorite accessories - I feel very Frida Kahlo/super sophisticated artist when I wear them. Also, even if I've got less than a dollar in my pocket, a statement necklace makes me feel super glamorous. If you think you can't pull one off, think again. They look great on just about everyone and go with a t-shirt and jeans just as well as they go with a little black dress.
These are my picks for some holiday sparkle (and, yes - I picked one of my own!):
