J.Crew Replica Bubble Necklace

First things first--

1. Happy hump day!
2. Today I'm being drilled interviewed over at my lovah
 Jess's blog, The Kentucky Priss,
answering questions about my dream job, my most embarassing moment, and other fancy things.
Click HERE to go find out more about yours truly.

...and go leave Jess some love, too!


When I find really awesome, afforable things
it's obviously my duty to share them with you as well. 


We all have seen and lusted J. Crew's Bubble necklace
but that $150.00 pricetag for a necklace was just not cutting it for me.
Do you know how many cute tops/colored skinnies I could buy from F21 for that price?
I digress.

Bubble necklace



Insert eBay.
I will be the first to say that I don't trust ebay hardly at all
for quality and to look like the original.
However, when it comes to this gorgeous necklace - I was wrong.
I found a close replica of this J. Crew necklace and it was only $15.00.
For $15.00, if it looked remotely similar, I'd be super happy.
But when I got it in the mail, it looks way more than remotely similar
...it looks almost identical and it's durable!




and here's a picture of me wearing it
(not the best but Rocky looks too cute to pass up...)

Update: you CAN buy this necklace from sellers in the U.S!
It does NOT have to be shipped from China.
 

Tomorrow I will be back to share the DIY heart first dance frame tutorial.
I'm already antsy to get home tonight and watch the lovely (and pretty much my role model) Kelle Hampton on the Today Show!
Who else TiVO'd it?!

ps-if you don't have her book, Bloom, yet--GO BUY IT. Seriouslyyy.
I'm loving it.
