I love swing dresses and this mint H&M dress is just fabulous. It’s so Mad Men-ish! I have received many compliments on it, too. I have also been looking for a black statement necklace but have been very frugal about shelling too much for it. I adore the Adia Kibur black statement necklace but couldn’t justify paying $72 for it and it sold out quickly on ShopBop! (*UPDATE: It’s back in stock!)

I was therefore very happy when I saw the black statement necklace at H&M at $14.95 for a fraction of the price of the Adia Kibur statement necklace. (they had a similar version in light pink earlier in Spring but I passed since I wasn’t a fan of pink but this is perfect!) Granted, the quality is probably a stark difference but I am happy with my frugal find!

Are you a fan of statement jewelry?
