Fall Fashion Accessory: Vintage Cluster Leaves Necklace

Happy Monday, everyone!!!
I hope you guys had a very lovely weekend with all your loved ones.
For me, I just lounged around and relaxed while reading and eating cookies. Lots and lots of cookies. :)

Anyways, have you guys heard of AliExpress?

We’re an online shopping site that features a wide
variety of fashion jewelry and other products. The twist is that all
sellers on the site are based in China, which allows you to get new styles
straight from the source at really fantastic prices.

AliExpress is a company that specializes in unique fashion accessories. But they also carry a bunch of other products -- apparel, toys, electronics, etc.
I know I say this all the time, but they have so many choices, you won't be able to choose just one.
I am totally head over heels on all their statement necklaces!!!
And they're all very very affordable, I promise.

I am a necklace kind of girl, so I think you can imagine how excited I was when Priscilla contacted me about a review.
I was like "OOOOOHHHHHHH YEEEEEEEAAAAAAUUHHHHHH!" :D


I got my necklace a few days after ordering it.
It's packaged in this beautifully tied box.
I just love the colors of the ribbons -- purple and yellow = LAKERSSSS!
(I'm not really a hardcore Laker fan, but my brother is, sooooo you get the point.)


Vintage Cluster Leaves Necklace c/o AliExpress powered by Alibaba
$8.48

This necklace comes in gold & silver.
I received the gold one.
I know the flash of my camera made it look a little "bronze" but it's really gold, I swear.
The necklace does tend to change shades though, depending on the lighting and the angle you're seeing it from, which I think is pretty cool.


Above are the right and left view of the necklace.


The chain has a pattern which I really like. It adds a bit of character to the necklace.
It's not too short to the point that it's a choker necklace, but it's not too long either. 
It has a traditional clasp so it's easy to wear and take off.


Now, my absolute favorite part is the leaves!!!
Ah, I seriously love the vintage detailing. It's not just your ordinary pendant.
The pieces of leaves are clustered to form a large one.
This necklace is a bit heavy.
I prefer heavy jewelry over light ones just because I know that it is of good quality.

I wore this necklace with my Armani Exchange floral ruffled top and it looked awesome!!!
I actually got a few compliments on it. ;D

For those of you who run an Etsy shop or a mini boutiques, you can buy AliExpress products in bulk for a reasonable price.
