Mint and Yellow

I've always been a lover of pastels, so layering them up seems like the perfect thing to do in the spring.

As much as I keep telling myself to stop buying cheap costume jewelry from China, I fell victim to yet another super trendy piece. Last one, I promise! At least in an effort to make more room in my jewelry box, I ditched the regrettable bubble necklace, along with several other pieces.

  1. Hi. You cannot get any more beautiful I have decided. You always look like the definition of classy with some trendy mixed in but never too trendy. I adore that about you!

  4. I've been eyeing that necklace on eBay as well! I think there's nothing wrong with buying costume jewelry on there, especially when it's a trendy item :)

  10. The problem with statement necklaces is that they really don't exist in an investment version, per se... and even if they did, they'd cost so much that we'd have to buy the version from China, anyway. And really, when they're this pretty, who can say no? I love this new one you've picked up, especially paired with your yellow sweater. Yellow and sparkle are a match made in heaven as far as I'm concerned :)

  23. You look amazing. I like your new costume necklace. I think the occasionally piece of costume jewelry from ebay is totally acceptable.

  24. I'm glad someone else has fallen victim to the China eBay knock-offs! I had to stop looking at eBay because I kept ordering. There are so many vendors now. That is a great piece though!
