F21 Silk Flower Necklace Review
I received this Necklace, along with all of my other F21 goodies, yesterday. I had been looking forward to getting this necklace since it first popped up on the US site. I then waited patiently for about 2 weeks for it to show up on the Canadian F21 site and when it did, I immediately snagged it.
I really like this necklace. The dark purple shade is the perfect match to my J Crew Sharkskin skirt. While I had not intended to wear it with my Sharkskin skirt, it truly is the perfect match.
The necklace is quite large, as you can see from the picture. The largest flower measures about 4 inches in diameter. There are about a eight silk flowers attached to a felt backing. The Felt backing gives the necklace weight and a good base so that it sits flat on the chest.
I've gotten many compliments on this necklace already. In fact, one of the ladies in my office acknowledged that the necklace looks very attractive in person whereas the online picture makes it look quite silly.
I like this necklace because it looks like the flowers are a part of my shirt as opposed to being a necklace. I like that it looks like a framed collar on my tank. Obviously a scooped-neck top helps the look of a framed collar; that said, a shirt collar would obviously not have the same effect.
I haven't had a chance to try it with a white crew neck tee and jeans. (That's how I had initially intended on wearing this necklace). Now that I think about it, I don't know if I'll like the crew neck with this necklace. I guess I won't know until I try, right? But I certainly like the look of the scoop neck top with this necklace. The look is reminiscent of the Silk Pleated Posy Top - in that it has a large framed collar.
I like it so much that I'm now comtemplating getting it in the black as well.
So, what do you think of the F21 Silk Flower Necklace? Do you like it? Would you consider getting it?
