wishlist: statement necklace from bcbg

I first spied this elaborate necklace on the Girl with Curves blog. Something about it spoke to me. It’s reminiscent of Cleopatra and Egyptian style collar necklaces, and me being Egyptian, can’t resist the style. It’s also colorful and shiny (yay for rhinestones).

The problem is the price. $148 is just out of my budget for just one piece of costume jewelry!

What do you think of this unique statement necklace? Worth saving up for?


Midsummer Madness (dressember) day 6 + other stuff

Day 6 of dressmeber midsummer madness has been record-breakingly hot (106 degrees as the high). I spent most of the day just hanging around the house in this cute Tart Collections navy halter dress. I found it a few weeks ago at TJ Maxx and my mom was sweet enough to get it for me (it was on clearance, too)! It’s casual but super comfortable and makes a perfect summer dress.

Later on in the day, my mom and I headed to the mall to cool off and I ran into this GORGEOUS necklace at J Crew. This bubble necklace is super awesome but SUPER EXPENSIVE. I cannot imagine ever paying $150 for a piece of costume jewelry.

But being the bargain shopper that I am, I had already been watching this very same necklace on ebay (I really had no idea it was $150…AH!) and I have found a¬†multitude¬†of them for under $20; some are even under $15 with free shipping. They ship from China but I think it would be work the wait. The Bubble necklace at J Crew is made in China too, I checked the tag.

Here is one of my favorite Bubble necklace look-a-likes. You can find them in a rainbow of colors but the apple green is awesome!

Mom and I then headed to Ulta to get me a new bottle of nail polish (don’t worry, I’ll show you later). While there, I remarked at how amazingly well my week old Ulta nail polish has lasted and not chipped hardly at all! I’m very impressed with Ulta polishes and their price is GREAT!

My manicure from last week, still looking great (and instagram-ed):


I hope all of you are staying cool and having a great weekend so far!
