Update: The winner of the casual friday necklace is Lauren with the following comment  “ this is a great necklace to wear with a short pearlescent gold dress. I would want to wear one that is high waisted and fuller at the hips like this:×230/Forever21-gold-dust-strapless_67857A93.jpg I would also pair that with some sexy pin up pumps with an ankle strap in cream.


Congratulations Lauren and a big thank you to all of you who participated!

This week Fashiongrail features another incredibly talented artist, Anca Ariciuc, who opened her Etsy store Anca NY in 2007.  “I only like to make one of a kind pieces,” said Anca, “because for me beauty is sprung from the act of creation.”  Anca explains that the “Casual Friday’s” necklace was inspired by jewelry scraps that were taken apart and put together in other incarnations.  Anca did have a specific muse in mind when she created the Casual Friday’s necklace: “The wearer is funky and young; funny and outgoing. She likes to mix and match, and her outfits always hold an element of surprise.”  I love it!


Product Description: Casual Friday’s Necklace.  Retail value $50.  Two-strand asymmetrical necklace in antiqued burnished brass finish. The necklace is an eclectic mix of chains, a few charms and olivie green beads, and 19 mother of pearl coin beads.  The necklace measures 20″ at the shorter strand and 23″ at the longer one. The tassel at the bottom is 4″ long (50 cm, 57 cm, and 10 cm respectively).  Closes in the back with a lobster claw clasp.  All metal is non allergenic (no nickel in the plating). The contest will run from Monday, June 29 to Friday July 3 winner will be selected on Saturday, July 4.


How to Play: Go to  Anca NY and pick your favorite piece.  Return to Fashiongrail and leave a comment to the following question: “What would you wear it with?”  Make sure you name the piece you picked!  The most creative answer will win!  Have fun and good luck!

    I love, love LOVE the Gatsby Deco ( and I’d probably pair it with an LBD and some brightly colored pumps (probably coral or turquoise colored ones to match the amazing jewels on the necklace… and I already have the PERFECT pair to match with them!) and allow the piece itself to be the main event in my outfit.

    If wearing it a little more casual, I’d probably dress it down with a pair of well-fitting jeans (my current favorite J Brand blue jeans would do) and a white tee with black ballet flats… really, the necklace is too gorgeous to not be the center of my outfit.

    Hair’s got to be basic too, probably a pulled-back chignon with nails a basic pearl color.

    Eep! Now I’m absolutely excited to get ready for the day!

    I almost always wear black. I love, Casta Diva the Grey Freshwater Pearl Layered Necklace. I would dress-up a plainer outfit of mine, some black pants with a nice structured shirt. I think it would spice up any entire black ensemble. Beautiful designs!

    Love, love, love the sense and sensibility earrings. Those would definitely go with my little brown dress to political gatherings and must-do parties to spice things up. They’d also be great with jeans and flip-flops for a touch of class.

    I really love the Casual Friday’s Necklace! But if I had to choose another piece, it would be the Gatsby Deco wrapped necklace. It is just so ridiculously beautiful and ornate! I would pair this necklace with an off-white tiered vintage dress and sky-high heels, to a fancy dinner party or a romantic date with my man. What an amazing necklace!

  9. I would be wearing the Innocence ring with a crisp white button-down tucked into a pair of dark wash skinny jeans; which, in turn, would be tucked into a pair of brown slouchy suede boots. Oui, simple yet tres sublime. 🙂
