Obsessed by Plus Size Necklaces and Collars

Okay, I am obsessed, we have to have another post about how to make necklaces and collars work for you if you are plus size. I am moving, more about that in another post, and I spent last evening looking at collars and necklaces as discussed in my prior post (rather than packing), because there are so many statement pieces out there right now, like the one above.  It is kind of a summer spring Annie Hall look. Who knows what this cost, hundreds of dollars perhaps?  But you could recreate this look with this, in fact I may have to.

HAREMDESIGN on Etsy $45 including shipping.  It has a silver chain at the back which could have an extender if needed. Or you could add a long ribbon so it starts further down and surrounds the necklaces below, more like the inspiration pieces above.  There are other bibs or large lace collars on Etsy that are cheaper, but the lace look may be too lacey for me, although Torrid says the lace and denim look is trending right now.  You could combine it with the necklaces below by putting them all on a ribbon, together or separately.  I think it would look amazing, or maybe something a little more in the same shade and color of the collar above. Or this heavier but still spring summer look:

And here are several more statement pieces, all from Etsy, because I love that someone is actually making most of these.  That some woman has found a market for tatting or lace or crochet, or crafting, a talent that she thought was not marketable.  YAY!

This season is all about the statement necklace look. Be brave and try something a little wild, you will be glad you did, hopefully.  I will try to stop now and get some packing done.

  1. Before you buy on etsy, check on ebay. Unfortunately a lot of the handmade stuff on etsy isn’t really handmade anymore (at least not by the shop owner) – I have found the same things on etsy for 2-3x what they are on ebay and they are the same items. Sometimes even arrive on the same hang tags. Has really made shopping on etsy so frustrating for me, because I want to support small businesses but end up feeling like I’ve gotten ripped off.

    • Thanks for the tip Andrea. I shopped ebay for years before I became an etsy addict and it would be good for me to do a little comparison shopping. Thanks so much for reading my blog and commenting. I am on my way now to check yours out.
