jewelry giveaway numero uno.  unfortunately, this is for tumblr users only.  the next two giveaways will incorporate everybody but i felt the need to call out to my tumbling followers and friends.  so the whole point of this blog is to style historical and literary (sometimes musical) personalities.  as such, re-blog this post and add one of the below…do be sure that it is obvious how to e-mail you should you be the winner (include in re-blog or make sure it is clearly visible on your tumblr)1: who in history or literature you could see wearing this and brief brief reasoning behind it2: how you would wear this piece.i want to make sure that wherever this ends up it will be used properly, needs to have a good home.  also, some questions have been raised about the necklace.  rest assured it is indeed a kate spade new york necklace and is brand new, never used and has a logo stamp on the clasp.  it is also one of kind, not another one like it in the whole wide world, aren’t you lucky?  good luck!

I love the Ancient Greek vibe of this necklace, with its large collar design and the spiral medallion.  Thanks to high school lit class, I’m familiar with The Odyssey…but Faithful Penelope?  Nah, this necklace is a bit too bold, too saucy to put on and wait for 20 years till your husband gets back, rejecting suitors left and right.  Instead I see this being worn by the sorceress Circe, who transformed her enemies into animals using magic potions.  She was a seductress with a hot temper, basically the HBIC.  She would totally rock this.
I could definitely see myself wearing this necklace for a night out in New York.  Wouldn’t the electric blue really pop if I wore it with a floaty magenta frock like this one? It would definitely be the center of the outfit with a cream ruffly party dress, or even go really literal with the Greek inspiration in this drapey number.  And during the day, it would be perfect for a summer look with white jeans, a tank and a fitted navy blazer.  I would love to have this beauty to style up a million ways!
