Sonny & Cher: Style Icons

sonnyandcher-sonny-cher-collage

As I was searching for photos of Sonny and Cher for this style icon post, my focus went in another direction when I spotted Cher wearing a necklace that I own …omg I die!

Upon further inspection, it looks as though they are a bit different. For instance, I think hers has a couple more pineapples on the sides and they are a bit larger as well. I’m guessing Cher still owns hers unless she sold it for charity because how could you possibly get rid of this? {note* it’s called a Squash Blossom Necklace}

I got mine on Ebay a couple years ago just because I thought it was so fabulous I had to have it {although I haven’t worn it yet}.

1. Turquoise ALWAYS comes back in style
2. This is such a statement piece it would make any simple/solid dress pop!

Imagine my excitement when I saw it around Cher’s neck in the 70’s!!! .. love. that. shit.

    Love the necklace! :]

    I really liked Cher’s look in the late 60’s-70’s. She was so pretty. I wish she wouldn’t have done all the plastic surgery stuff. She was a natural beauty.

    Wow – love it – found one just like it on etsy for $269 but that is waaayyy out of my budget! (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=23778030) Out of curiosity, how much did you pay for yours?

    Thanks!!!

    It is so nice to think about all the hidden treasures I may have somewhere buried in my own closet.

    Now all you need is a white horse and a feather head dress, and belt out “Half-Breed”..while trotting down the beach at sunset!…

    Ok, woah, that’s awesome (I literally said “woah” out loud). Not only is it a gorgeous necklace, but you’re basically a celebrity by proxy now.

    And you’re so right – turquoise will always come back into style!

    When I was little in the 1970s, I had a Cher scrapbook, formed mostly by images from *Rona Barrett’s Hollywood.* But somehow I found Cher’s address and she sent me a couple of autographed photos. Can still imitate that distinctive autograph!
