Basic Best and Statement Necklace

Hello everybody! This week has been pretty busy for me playing host to some relatives  from Italy.  We were everywhere and as a result I didn't even have time to do my regular 3 posts per week. If I haven't been dropping by some of your blogs lately, I am truly sorry but I promise to catch up soon.  

I am back to my basic shirt/jeans combo today featuring this fabulous pair of cotton shirt and red leather belt I got from Venice and this beautiful necklace I got from the sales last week! I love everything about this necklace - the design, the color, how it fits.. I can go on and on; it is just so pretty! 












I also bought a piece of beautiful cashmere scarf from Diane Von Furstenberg (DVF), a pair of sandals from Mystique and a denim jacket from Salsa.  Hope I will be able to post them here soon.

What about you?  Did you managed to snatched some good bargain during the sales?  C'mon now, share with us here!
