The J.Crew catalog never fails to tempt me with beautiful and often overpriced things. After putting it down, I’m convinced I need that sweater in five colors, and of course a belt, shoes, and a statement necklace to match. I frequently fall victim to such ploys, but when the J.Crew models recently tempted me with their striking bubble statement necklace (pictured above) I resisted the $150 price tag. After all, I needed that money for the eight thousand color combinations of J. Crew’s Cece ballet flats I am prepared to purchase! After a bit of searching, I have found an equally pleasing statement necklace in a similar style and colorfor a mere $39. I can now add a pop of contrasting color to my ensembles and still have a little money left over to put towards bills and ahem J.Crew related expenses. JOY!

    That is disappointing. They probably found people are willing to pay $10 extra…I imagine demand is pretty high. Still better than the J.Crew price tag…I know H&M has a similar style, but it is also super popular.
