weak link.

i was in banana republic on black friday checking out the jewelry when a lady came by holding a beautiful tortoise shell + gold chain link necklace. i told her it was pretty and went off to look for it. i couldn't find it. next thing i knew, she was at the counter next to me asking the sales clerk if they had another one because she wanted to hook it together to make a long necklace. there was one more behind the counter (darn, i should have asked), and then the lady proceeded to hook them together and try it on. she kept humming and hawing in front of the mirror. i mean, just get it already. or give one up.

while picking up some earrings for mini-she at claire's, i found this necklace on the clearance rack with an additional 75% off. came out to $1.75 or something crazy like that.
who's the weak link now? not me.
(sweater, old navy (similar); denim, f21 (similar); necklace, claire's (similar)(purple); nails, essie turquoise and caicos (buy); gold bracelet, nordstrom (similar in bronze); black bracelet, express (buy); shoes, etienne aigner via ideeli)

  6. What I love the most about reading your blog on the daily is your catchy titles and the story behind your purchases. And wth at the lady, its okay it was probably bound to happen for you to score a great deal on that necklace. Isn't it so weird how things fall into place sometimes?

    I love your flats and sweater, cute!!

  10. Awesome necklace! While a lot of the jewelery in those places is pretty crappy, some of it's actually randomly awesome if you have the time to look.

  11. Hahaha...I would have been like 'oh no, I think one is good enough...don't really think it'll hold up' or something like that to discourage her purchasing two...yup, I'm evil that way but hey, I want what I want :) This necklace is nice though. Love the look and for that price, it's a steal!! Loving these photos too btw!
