Hello! Meet the most ridiculous recent addition to my wardrobe: this rhinestone "SEXY" choker necklace. I recently spotted it at Ashby and I knew that it had to be mine the second that I laid eyes on it. I'm honestly not sure if I've ever seen a necklace as obnoxious as this one and love its glam-trash appeal. And for less than $15, how could I say "no?"

I wanted the focus of this look to be primarily on the necklace so I paired it with a little black and white polka dot slip dress that wouldn't take the attention away from the choker. I styled a lace-up pair of burnt red heels and yellow aviator shades with the look to keep it from feeling too blah. I emphasized the glamorous appeal of the choker with a sparkling silver purse and lil rhinestone earrings. A golden vintage watch pulled the look together.
