For a girl who doesn’t love color, I’m LOVING this teal backdrop I came across in Venice! I’m also currently loving Are You Am I, a clothing company by Instagram professional, Rumi Neely. I had my eyes on their Instagram for a while, and finally reached out to get some pieces from their newest collection. I was not disappointed!
To add to my ever-growing choker collection, AYAI sent me a thick black velvet choker and a thin black velvet choker, which I accessorize with nearly every outfit. Of course, I had to get the Lilou leather for a more “daytime” look. These pieces have become an everyday staple in my wardrobe; I switch off depending on how dramatic I want my neck to look.
You can never go wrong with a choker. I know I’ve said this before, but there are no rules when it comes to the width, color, or fabric of a choker. It is even fun to create your own choker out of fabrics you already own! When I am feeling edgy, I wear something around my neck that is about 2inches thick. It sounds overwhelming and bulky; but if you slick back your hair, and put on a bold lip, you will be the star of the night. Remember that if you are going to wear a statement piece around your neck, keep everything else minimalistic. Less is more.
