Rose Gold Moment

13 Jan

Hi, friends.  If you’ve chatted with me for longer than 25 seconds, you know that I’m having a rose gold moment.  I’ve fallen in love with the gold and copper alloy and hope to compile a three piece collection soon.  My rose gold wardrobe will include the following:

Michael Kors Mid-Size Runway Watch

I’m not particularly fond of the color brown but I have fallen hard for this timepiece.  In person it reads like a “smoky amethyst” and looks quite striking on the wrist.  At $495, this look is certainly not “for less” so for now I’ll keep it on my wishlist.

Stella & Dot Beatrice Necklace

I have been searching for a reasonably priced rose gold necklace for approximately one year.  There’s just one problem – there are very few reasonably priced rose gold necklace options on the market.  Thankfully, Stella & Dot (stay tuned for more news on this front) recently released the Beatrice necklace. At $118 this will be the least expensive piece in my rose gold wardrobe and will likely be my first jewelry purchase of 2012.

Alexis Bittar ‘Miss Havisham’ Pinched Oval Earrings

I have mixed feelings about these earrings.  On the one hand, I love them.  And on the other hand, I don’t love the price.  I’ve been diligently watching these beauties for over a year in hopes of a sale.  Unfortunately, the price has remained steady.  However, the optimist in me is convinced that I can find them for less than $225. Technically, a similar look for less is available but the design just doesn’t speak to me the way Miss Havisham does.

That, my friends, is my rose gold moment.  Are you having a moment of your own?  What’s on your wishlist for this year?  Please share your comments below.


Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale

11 Nov

The Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale for Women and Kids began last week.  I am actively avoiding the store, as I am committed to saving money for an upcoming trip.  However, I couldn’t resist perusing Nordstrom.com for the best deals. Big Mistake.  I have just added three items to my wish list.  Fingers crossed, I can keep myself out of the store through the end of the sale!

1. Barse Semiprecious Stone Necklace, $57.90 – This Blue Lace Agate natural stone necklace would be the perfect compliment to outfits in blue, gray and brown.


2. Juicy Couture ‘Honeycomb’ Enamel Bangle, $65.90 – How cute are these bangles from Juicy Couture?  The black one is perfect for stacking with other black and gold bracelets.

Juicy_Bangle3. Michael Kors ‘ID’ Chain Shopper, $594.90 – I love the placement of the chains on this versatile bag.


Fall Wishlist: Michael Kors Bracelet Watch

2 Sep

I went to Nordstrom this past weekend to return a pair of earrings, and before the transaction was complete, I managed to fall in love with another item.  This time, the object of my retail affection is the Michael Kors Ladies Sport Bracelet watch.  I know I’ve fallen in love with other Michael Kors watch styles in the past, but this time it’s different. This time, I’ve found ‘the one’.  Michael Kors’ latest design is boyfriend-style bold with enough delicate touches, like the mother of pearl face, to remain undeniably feminine.  This stainless steel beauty is offered in two color choices.  It should come as no surprise that the gold iconic plating is my favorite.  This watch is available at Nordstrom for just $195.


Wishlist: Michael Kors Catwalk Watch

6 Jun

Given the current economic conditions, I’ve decided to stop treating myself to accessories whenever something pretty catches my eye.  And for the record, that’s extremely hard.  But I’m growing up and committed to fiscal responsibility so it must be done.  With that in mind, I have decided to treat myself to a practical gift for my upcoming birthday – a watch! Specifically, the Michael Kors ‘Two Tone Catwalk’ Chronograph Watch.  This boyfriend-style timepiece is elegant, practical and reasonably priced at $250.  I wonder if it comes with a built in ‘get to work on time’ feature? A girl can dream, right?
