Is it wrong that my favourite part of this Montreal Fashion Week F/W 2010 is my beautiful new Charlotte Hosten necklace? Mine is the same style as these two above, part of the jewelry designer's permanent prÃªt-a-porter collection, and it means I can now stock my wardrobe with basics and simple lines so I can show it off. If I were skinny I'd wear it a white tank and jeans, or with a sleek black fine-knit turtleneck sweater and highwaisted nautical pants. But happily, the necklace is so swoon-worthy that it doesn't really matter whether I'm skinny or not. Basic black, grey, whatevs -- my necklace, navy with one deep pink flower that I can change to any of the other colours you see above, will attract and distract. Genius.
