Hi there!  It's Wednesday and you know its time for the Fatshion Faceoff, right?  (Or if you're a first-timer that stumbled here via whoknowswhere, click the link at the top of the page to find out what the Fatshion Faceoff is all about!)  Anyway, this week's challenge item was chosen by Olivia and she picked... a statement ring!  Now, I have quite a few rings that would qualify as a "statement" piece, but none so much as this big funky ring I chose for today's challenge.  It's silly and weird, and I love it so so much because I made it!  Wanna see?  

sunnies - RayBan | dress (similar), L - H&M | heels, US9 - Target | ring - selfmade

It totally fits my personality, don't you think?  Those of you that know me well would probably say YES.  Anyway, a cracked egg is something I totally identify with (especially as the semester gets underway), and heck, I'm not afraid to own my weirdness.  :)  As for the outfit, it's the opposite of weird, and I kept things simple to make my wacky ring the center of attention.  Because that's what a "statement piece" is supposed to do, right?  Get people's attention?  

Mission.  Accomplished.  

Now that you've seen my attempt at a statement ring, make sure to clickity click the links below to see what the other girls came up with for this week's challenge (I'm sure they're looking fabulous)!  :D

  1. This ring is the most epic of epic statement rings !!!! I love it :) x

  2. Nice shoes!!!

  3. Mhairi said it: THAT IS EPIC! I don't know how I could do anything with a ring that big on my finger, but damn it looks awesome! How did you do it babe, I'm all curious! xx

  4. looove the ring how did you make it? its fabulous!!

  5. That is definitely a statement!!!! Love it Dani!! Now for goodness sake I must know how you made it?!??!?!

  6. Haha, thanks Mhairi! I love it too! :D

  7. OMG, I couldn't do anything with it on my finger either! It's pretty big and not very practical, but hell oh well. :P

  8. Thanks Mouna! I made it in my metals/jewelry class last semester! It's made out of copper sheet metal, and I had to cut, solder (melt/bond the pieces together), sand, polish, etc the whole darn thing. It took a while, but it was worth it, right? ;D

  9. Aw, thanks Olivia! I made it in one of my studio art classes last semester for a project! See my reply on Mouna's comment for more info. ;)

  10. Love it. And a cracked egg, oh I hear you lady, I feel the same way most days. Haha. Great outfit, classic and oh so pretty.

  11. That is a sweet ring! You are so talented. :)

    Also, you are right on with the outfit. I like the all black look which allows the ring to really stand out. And those shoes are to die for!! (well, maybe to die for for me because I adore all things leopard print. lol)

  12. Simple, chic, beautiful
