Torn on how to rate this
I'm really torn on how to rate this surprise. On one hand, I absolutely love the necklace I was sent (LuLu Frost Drifting Leaves Necklace). It's been on my "hearts" for a long time and I was very excited to have it sent to me. Also, the necklace usually rents for $50, so the $15 surprise was a great deal. It's a great statement necklace. HOWEVER, the necklace looked horrible with both of the dresses I rented. One dress (for a bachelorette party) was black and silver sequined- a large gold necklace just clashed. The other dress had a busy, brightly colored print- the combo of the busy necklace and busy print just did not work. Now, I did end up wearing the necklace to the bachelorette party because I wound up not wearing the dress I rented. The necklace looked great with the very simple LBD I wore.
So to wrap it up, I loved the piece I was sent but was disappointed it did not match either dress I rented to go with it. It worked out fine for this event, but I'm not sure I would do the stylist surprise again. If it doesn't match the dress(es) you rent, what's the point?
