How I saved $240 at Charlotte Russe!

One thing you can guarantee when you work in a all female salon is that you will defiantly be invited to your fair share of jewelry parties. So since I know my way around a Stella and dot catalog I was excited to find a dead ringer for the Temptest Necklace, one of Stella and Dots best selling necklaces that is actually back ordered till May 16. I was at charolette Russe and found this necklace for only $8. Now I’m not gonna say that the Stella and Dot necklace doesn’t have finer detailing and of course it also includes that really cool brass closure but with a difference in price of $190 I think I can deal!

I also had been dying to get my hands on the renegade cluster bracelet by Stella and dot but when I saw a very similar set of bangles I couldn’t resist. Now I have several pandora bracelets (all silver) and I figured by stacking the gold bracelets with my much more expensive pandoras it would distract the eye anyway. So basically why bother spending $59 on a single bracelet thats going to get lost in the crowd when you can get a fun set for a tenth of the price!

Anyway my thoughts have always been why spend hundreds of dollars on trendy costume jewelry. I would much rather invest in life long gold, silver, diamond, etc piece then a statement necklace for a night out on the town. Now I know it’s hard to deny a close friends jewelry party invite and almost impossible to leave with out purchasing but try to make sure the piece is one of a kind because if it isn’t you never know where it’s going pop up…and with a much lower price tag!
