~Haul~ Charming Charlie Clearance....

Hey Everyone!!!

Today, I stopped into my local Charming Charlie. I've mixed feelings about Charming Charlie or I think its just this location. I'll save that for another post. Overall, I like the store. Wall to Wall Jewelry? It's like a grown folks Claire' a bigger Afterthoughts. lol! Who remembers Afterthoughts?

 I got four beautiful statement necklaces, since I'm really into them this season. This whole haul was $12. All the clearance was BOGO Free, Buy One Got One FREE. I almost went ham! Well, I wanted to go ham.:(
 This necklace is choker style but it fits my neck really nice....
 I have a necklace like this pinned on a Pinterest board from last year. I can't believe I got it for $5.
 This necklace is gold and the snakeskin pattern is actually a light green. It also has earrings which I will probably wear seperately.
This is same necklace as above but bronze with brown snakeskin like print....Gorgeous.

What do you think of my haul?

~Haul~ My Birthday Goodies.....

Its safe to say that I'm a little obsessed with necklaces this fall. I wore big, statement earrings all summer. Now, that it is cooler and I can stand things around my neck, I'm on to necklaces, big, small, and definitely statement! I bought these two necklaces for  my birthday as gifts to myself at a local boutique. I learned the hard way, if you don't buy yourself what you want, who will?

 This beaded necklace is coming off very turquoise but its actually a dark blue green. The flash is giving it its life! Downside, its choker length. I didn't try it on in the store. However, I'm going to lengthen it. Always got to be savvy. smh

Got my white bubble necklace!! I wanted a white one sooo bad! Its got gold hardware but that's ok. Its also smaller than most bubble necklaces out there. I want a small black one, a pink one and turquoise one and I'm done!! LOL!

~Haul~ J. Crew-esque Bubble Necklace and Rings.....

Finally, I got the call that made me super happy yesterday. A local boutique, Almost Pink, has bubble necklaces in.

I know I could have ordered one online but I wanted a black one and I wanted to see the dimensions up close. Some the ones I spotted online where either small or big.

 Its actually really big and heavy...but I'm so happy to finally have my hands on one. I probably have bubble necklaces pinned 10 times on my Pinterest boards. lol! It was $22 at Almost Pink
 I went by the Beauty Supply Store to pick up some wig caps and scored all these rings in the pictures for $1 a piece.

~Celebrity Adorned~ Ashanti's "Bling Bling" Jewelry....

Let's Talk.:)

Today, I was scrolling through my Google Reader catching up on the blogs when I came across a post on The Fashion Bomb Daily on Ashanti and her "look for less" tank top. But that's not what caught my eye....

In the description of the whole outfit in the post it states: "She finished her look with diamond dog tags, crystal hoops, an icy watch (swoons), loose waves, and neon nails."

Diamond dog tags, crystal hoops and an ICY watch??! Is this 2001?!? LOL! 

Is Ashanti still rocking "BLING BLING"?! 

Can we still rock "BLING BLING??!?"

I was around for "bling bling", roughly the late 90s', early Millennium and trend was bananas. Even if your bling bling wasn't real, you decked out in  blinged out t-shirts, jeans, costume jewelry. Now, I'm pretty sure all of Ashanti's bling is real, she was killing the diamond studded jewelry trend back then like no other. ... But can she still rock jewelry that's not VINTAGE but still VALUABLE?

Eh, to each its own but I was taken aback by her dusting these pieces off and giving me 1999 tease.

That watch just screams..."IT'S MUUUURRRDEERRRRR" :/

Ashanti bling'd out...circa 2002.....

I aint gon to lie....this was fly song back...10 years ago. 

Can we still rock the "bling bling" with dignity in '12??? Let me know!

~Weekend Adornment #1~ How I Wore My Jewelry ......

I had a pretty full weekend. Kids, cancelled weekend plans, a funeral I didn't get to attend, a birthday party, church, a hangover. Too much. But I still looked good despite it all!! Here are couple of pics of my jewelry Saturday and Sunday.....
Saturday....full of the antics from the kids, emotions up and down from me....

This necklace was a $1 at the BSS. I LOVE IT. Its comfortable and it really gave my black tank, black vest and grey cutoffs and flipflops a pop of fun  and color I needed.
I wore no earrings in my 1st piercing, just my standard tear drop studs from Jungwha by Amy Stewart.....
Great wooden bracelet from the BSS as well...the color was like a fuchsia/red. I also have this in orange.

That night, I dropped in on my best friends's birthday party for what was going to be just a spell and to pay my love and respects and back to the house. Ended up staying the whole night until her dad kicked us all out of the venue since we had to be out by 1:30 am. lol! Plus, I "dranked" like I was 21 again, shots, jello shots, the club favorite Moscato, Coronas and still managed to eat and get back down the road back home safely. God is good. LOL!

These earrings are from the BSS too...$1.
Here's my arm candy, $1 pieces and three DIY pieces by me.:)
Silly duck face picture in the bathroom mirror. I just HAD TOO. LOL! I think that is soooo corny when people do that! But you get to see all the pieces I wore and the top that worked it around.
Sunday morning....

Earrings $1 at the BSS, Junghwa by Amy Stewart feather necklace and some arm party/candy I didn't get a picture.

Plus, a nice hangover that I healed with two ibupofens, grits, eggs, and grapefruit. I normally starving after a night of dranking up a storm.

So how was your weekend? lol!

~Jewelry Haul~ Junghwa by Amy Stewart ( Haul #2!)

I decided to treat myself to another Junghwa by Amy Stewart haul. I just love her pieces!

I don't have many gold pieces so I picked up the Curved Bar Necklace-14K Gold Filled to fill that void:)

I literally put all the pieces on as soon as I opened the package. LOL! Here is me with the necklace on...

Here are the Tiny Teardrop Earring Studs I was talking about in the previous Junghwa haul....Check it out HERE.

They are perfect for my 2nd piercing.:)

The packaging was gorgeous and personal as usual. Now I got another two pieces I want. lol!

I'm officially a Junghwa fan!! Please visit the shop HERE and the Facebook page HERE ( There is a shipping discount code on the FB page when you like it:))


~Accessory Haul~ Goodwill: Kate Spade Handbags, Sunglasses, Jewelry......

Couple of weekends ago, I stumbled into the Goodwill on a Sunday and found TWO authentic Kate Spade bags...CRAAAAAZZZYYYY
If you know the style name or number of either bag...let me know....

The green floral bag had the purchase card still in it. Both bags were $10 a piece. I know that blue bag, genuine leather, got to be over $300....
I got this necklace at a different Goodwill for $3. The medallion part is chipped but other than that the necklace is in great condition....Looks handmade too.
Another GW necklace for $3.
Sunglasses for $1.
