photo 2-24Pictured are some of my favorite costume jewelry pieces that I wear almost daily. I have a pretty large collection of costume pieces, so I'll have to do another post on some of my necklaces and even hair pieces later. My two open cuffs are from a C.Wonder outlet that I had to tear myself away from. It would be dangerous if I lived too close to an outlet mall. The sparkly cluster earrings were literally $5 at a Bealls Outlet, and the (faux) gold love knots were in the same price range. My sister got my grandmother's real gold love knots so I guess I bought them out of envy. Speaking of whom, Erin is the one who bought the Bourbon and Bowties gold and black bangle pictured on my bottle of Chanel No. 5. I keep having to steal it back from my roommate.

The green button earrings are Kate Spade, which I got when they were very much on sale, although they're under $40 to begin with, which is relatively reasonable for something classic. They come in a rainbow of colors. I have the hot pink as well, and the black are on my wish list. I rarely leave the house without my big Spartina cuff, but sometimes switch it out for the silver John Wind initial links when I wear my silver watch. The hoops with pearls and the black enamel drops are kind of everyday pieces that can also double as statement makers because they show up even if you have long, thick hair like I do.

I've found an array of different options similar to my favorites in varying prices. I put them all together in the link below. I love a bargain but hey, Christmas is coming. What are y'all asking Santa for?
