|I love this necklace with stripes!|
I have had costume jewelry on the brain because of the gorgeous exhibit Fashion Jewelry: The Collection of Barbara Berger as well as a post by the lovely Déjà at Une femme d’un certain âge showing a great necklace by J. Crew. So I suppose I was susceptible to a necklace purchase and this one sent me over the edge. I went to J. Crew looking for replacement T-shirts on sale (a Planned Purchase, but they were sold out!) and came away with this instead (and a little summer dress for my daughter).
I haven’t bought a J. Crew necklace in a couple of years—and yes, this was against my Shopping Ban, I am a little disgusted with myself!—but this one is totally me, not offered on the website, and I couldn’t walk away from it. I kept hearing Barbara Berger’s words in my head when she spoke of a jewelry purchase as a coup de coeur. Sometimes you just know. I plan on wearing it as part of my Casual Party Outfit for the next “How I Wear My” post in August—and I do hope you will join Adrienne of The Rich Life (on a budget) and me!
|Without flash. I love that shade of blue in the rectangular stones.|
Have you bought a glittery necklace lately? Tell me all about it!
And send a picture to Adrienne or me showing your Casual Party Outfit by July 31!
