Fashion for a Cause: The Lifesaving Locket

Olivia Palermo stars in a new campaign promoting the 'Malaria No More' Mosquito Locket Necklace by iconic jeweler Stephen Webster. You can buy it at for $164, which isn't bad considering 100% of profits go to the charity Malaria No More UK, which will help raise awareness of the disease that claims over 863,000 lives in Africa every year. I think this locket is really unique and eye-catching, a great gift for someone special this holiday season - yourself, perhaps?

Four Sequin Tees: Would You Wear One?

Vince's Sequin Wedge Tee has me swooning but it's $295 at So I started looking for some more affordable options...

Option 1: This sequin tee from Forever 21 is just $26 and its available in blue, peachy pink or silver. I like the length but I'm unsure about the neckline.

Option 2: Delia's Mariah Sequin Tee doesn't boast all-over sequins but the sequins look luxe (at least in the product pic) and the fit is relaxed. At $34.50, it seems like a win.

Option 3: The Limited has a version of the sequin tee for $49.90. It looks a little tight but I might be able to size up and still make it work.

Option 4: And finally, this oversized sequin tunic from Spiegel is a little pricey at $89, but the cut makes it look more fashion-y than some of the other options. Hmmm...

Which would you wear (if any)?
