Something old and something new:  found this amber glass jewelry box at an estate sale a while ago that then spurred me to purchase this beautiful J Crew necklace. It's super gorgeous in real life but I'm afraid it's way too glamorous for my every day life.  I'm trying to keep my wardrobe purchases functional but isn't fashion partly about having something a little fun and extravagant and over the top?  Now I just need an invite to a gala or benefit (or just dinner!)


  1. Gorgeous necklace - it's too pretty to wait to wear! I'd love to see you style it for brunch/lunch out with friends ... :) I think it would really make an impact with a simple top or dress.

  2. Wow...double wow! Both the amber box and necklace is gorgeous! I see that the necklace is on sale too, oh so tempting!

  3. I LOVE it. Looking forward to see you wear it!

  4. What a beautiful necklace! I didn't know they made it in amber. You'll have to wear it at the next HGS event at least. :o)

    1. it's the yellow version that's on sale online! somehow it looks totally different (in a better way) in real life!
