REVIEW: ShopTheLook.Net is one of the hottest new online jewelry websites to hit the pages of all the most popular fashion magazines. InStyle, Lucky, Redbook, Woman's Day, Good Housekeeping, O Magazine, Family Circle, I mean the list goes on and on!! And why you may ask? Because you can purchase gorgeous, I mean really stunning, quality pieces of designer inspired jewelry for prices that will blow your mind! I was actually shocked beyond words when I saw how many magnificent pieces of jewelry were priced well below $20 each. Jewelry designs that looked exactly like what I had seen actresses wear in movies or on TV that I thought would cost a small fortune. The words has spread, and smart informed shoppers are running to to stock up on all their favorite styles because they know an amazing deal when they see one. It is with such excitement that I include in my Alluring Autumn 2010 Guide. Let me introduce to this fantastic company!

The folks over at are so sweet! They generously allowed me to select a couple of pieces to review. I must have spent an hour on the site just having a blast checking out all the breathtaking styles of jewelry available there. I had the hardest time narrowing it down to just two items. So I decided let's pick a couple of truly show stopping designs, pieces that were so bold and eye catching, that it would give a whole new element and dimension to some of my previous season's outfits. I wanted to kick things up a notch and really have a couple of new styles that no one would expect to see me wear, which would make wearing them all that much more fun and exciting. Let me say, what I received not only achieved what I set out to do, but they made me gasp in astonishment when I first saw them, and I mean that in a good way! Here's what I selected to review:

Twisted Pearl and Chain Necklace
Price: $20


4 strands of faux pearls accented with silver chain twist together to complete this rocker necklace.

- Item Number IS11624
- Dimensions 18" with 3" extender

MY THOUGHTS: You receive your jewelry carefully packaged in black velveteen pouches which was an immediate great first impression. I like that they take great care in ensuring that your jewelry arrives in perfect condition, which it did. This is such a unique necklace. It is when classic feminine styling collides with edgy rocker chick and this is what the end result is. It is totally spectacular! The quality of the faux pearls is very realistic, they don't look cheap or plastic-like. And the silver tone chains look like sterling, again, they don't look flimsy or costume-like. This necklace gives the impression of a high end couture piece that you spent your entire month's paycheck on. I have already worn it with a black teeshirt and jeans, with a cute little black dress that I wore out to dinner, and I plan to wear it throughout the Fall and Winter season with both my casual as well as dressy outfits, that is unless my sister snags it when I am not looking and takes it for herself, because she keep hinting that she would wear it all the time too......I may just have to get her one for Christmas!

The necklace may have a bold, larger than life appearance, but it is actually very lightweight to wear, and the chains and style does not move around or get tangled and messed up. It drapes nicely against your skin and keeps it's beautiful style which pleased me, as I was worried that it may end up a tangled mess at the end of the day/night. So no need to worry! So if you want to spruce up your look with a classy pearl necklace, but also want to add an element of surprise to your look, then this hot little number is for you!

The next item I selected is taking the word embellished to a whole new level!!

Folk Luxe Stone Necklace
Price: SALE $10.40


This necklace is not to be worn by a wallflower. Make a playful fashion statement with the Folk Luxe Stone Necklace. Burnished gold and acrylic blue stones.

- Item Number IS10910
- Dimensions 24" chain length. 8" drop. 1/2"-1" stones.

MY THOUGHTS: First I have to comment, wow-wee, this incredible necklace is on Sale, I would run and get it before they are gone! Wholly moly this necklace is fabulicious!! I am still in awe over it, it is just delightful beyond words. Let me start out by saying the necklace larger than life so to speak and had to be housed in two of those soft black velveteen jewelry bags when it was shipped to me. One bag on each end of it. But surprisingly, the necklace is lightweight in spite of its gigantic size! It is meticulously crafted, there is so much attention to detail in every aspect of its design, and the elements are perfectly executed. I was so impressed with the fine quality and at this price, it makes me scratch my head in wonderment!

I love the look of turquoise with gold, the color combination is just so rich and decadent! In this case it is faux turquoise and gold tone metal, which who really knows when it is around your neck, right? I love to wear this necklace with a plain, white long sleeved button up the front blouse and a pair of jeans. It has that look of Western mixed with Hollywood Glamour, a most unique blend that really works for me. I plan to wear this necklace with black sweaters, black dresses and anything with black, white and or grey, which are most of the colors of the clothes that are in my closet.

Some may think turquoise can only be worn in the summer, but I am not one who has that mindset. I adore turquoise and especially when married with Gold so I plan to wear this throughout the Fall and Winter too. It will keep an element of warmth and sunshine to my look, especially on those drab cold wintery like days. This necklace is elegant, stylish, alluring, very hip and encompasses all the elements I look for, and then takes them all to new heights, and adds more dynamic energy to my everyday look.

I have learned as a result of the two pieces I chose to review that I should not be afraid to step out of my comfort zone, and to take chances by selecting pieces that are bolder than I may think are right for me. For when you take risks, try out new styles for yourself, it keeps your unique sense of style new and exciting, and gives you a renewed sense of confidence!

That covers my Review of I highly recommend that you consider shopping at to add some really hip and fashion forward pieces of jewelry to your Fall and Winter wardrobe. It is such an inexpensive yet effective way to add some spice to your look and make you feel glamorous and oh so chic! You can visit by CLICKING HERE! You have to check out their very wide range of styles and designs. I think you will be just as blown away as I was the first time I visited the site. Enjoy!!

A very special thank you to for providing me with the two necklaces to use for this review.

i had the opposite experience with i got things that did not meet my expectations in terms of color and size, and things did look plastic-y and fake. one necklace i bought kept breaking, repeatedly. i returned most things i got in exchange for two rings, one of which arrived broken! i would never shop there again.
