Pretty up your neck



Okay, so do you ever flip through fashion magazines or Web sites and think to yourself, WHAT were these designers thinking? All that creative genius and THIS is the best they could come up with?!Necklace

I had that reaction after seeing the $875 Dries Van Noten necklace to the right:

I love bracelets and I love necklaces, but bangles around my neck? No thanks. Sounds like a more colorful version of the neck bondage that made Stephanie suffocate last week.

That said, a feature on did get me thinking about statement necklaces. They are considered a "must-have" for fall. Most of us probably don't have a couple hundred dollars to spend on the necklaces featured on that site, but a fresh necklace or two might be just the way to spruce up our wardrobes for less this fall. (A great new purse or pair of shoes could be the ticket, too.)

Here are a couple options for cheaper neck ornamentation for fall:
