I’m loving Vera Wang‘s new collection of decadent, over the top bib necklaces for Fall 2009/Winter 2010!

The necklaces look like a combination of vintage crystals or beads, put together with silk flowers and ribbons.  They’re bold statement pieces – and are definitely for dressy events only.  Let the necklace be the focus of your outfit, you don’t need any other jewelry to compete with these necklaces.

Want to see what I’m talking about?
