Wear-and-Tear Jewelry

Just found this designer, Cheung Lik, under the brand "Wear and Tear" whilst checking things out on (an awesome jewelry site). I fell in love with her sculptural, geometric silk-wrapped pieces and decided I must have one of my own. Only thing is, kabiri is England-based and the price of the necklace I wanted converted to around $200 (the blue one at top). So I did what every good online shopper does and googled her. Turns out, she's on Etsy! And even better, the necklace was posted for $55!

With the recession and all, a bold, not-so-expensive accessory can update a look. I have 5 weddings planned for this summer. I'm going to use this necklace to change up the look of my little black dress.

Sharing is Caring!

I'm pretty much on a spending freeze (sorry, economy!), but a few items have managed to sneak their way through. These deals were too good to pass up.

$100! from $446 on
*note the $70 Samantha Pleet Romper and $110 Vena Cava dress... cheaper than a sample sale

(ok, I really wanted the brown messenger below, but the white one'll do for $400 less. *note: Knox will be doing a future collaboration with Urban Outfitters)

Steven Alan 100% Cashmere beret (which I wanted in December)
$19! from $98 on

Also, Hayden-Harnett is giving 20% off any one item on their site until 2/15 with code LOVERLY. Their new apparel, especially the swimsuits, are adorable!
