Flakey Goodness

When it’s this cold out, there’s one of two things to do: find a way to warm up or go with the cold flow. with a little help from this:

Turquoise and Snowflake Bracelet you may be able to do both at once.

Noah Philippe made this beauty for Green Earth out of genuine turquoise, silver plate chain and charms, and glass beads in blue and clear for a cool bracelet that will warm your heart.

Another warming feature is the pricetag. The suggested retail price is $149.99, but you can get it from Finejewelers.com for just $79.99.

Despite the color, this one isn’t making me at all blue.

Cuff Me!

To those of you who have been keeping up with this blog for a while, it comes as no surprise that I love bracelets. I particularly love cuff bracelets, and dramatic ones at that. So imagine my delight when my eyes lighted on this lovely item:

Julia Rofman Beaded Cuff While it pays homage to the Southwest, it’s a completely modern design full of verve and originality. So pretty.

And of course if you see it here, you know it’s on sale. This beauty originally would have set you back $225.00, but if you hurry you can order it from shopbop.com for just $157.50.

Drop Everything!

Sometimes you just need a pair of earrings to make a statement. I don’t know about you, but I love what these earrings are saying:

Semi Precious Stone Drop Earrings The fun shapes and chains say ‘casually comfortable.’ The semi-precious stones say ‘easy elegance.’ The combination says ‘superfantastic.’

Best of all, there’s what the price tag says. The retail price of  $277.99 says ‘a pretty darn good deal.’ Overstock.com’s usual price of $188.99 says ‘smart shopper.’ Right now, though, their discount to just $170.09 says ‘superfantastic deal.’

Superfantastic look, superfantastic deal…what more do you need?

I need these earrings.

Link It Up

Mmm…French cuffs. I love ’em. There’s just something about a pair of French cuffs with a really great pair of cufflinks that makes me deeply happy.

Thomas Pink Cufflinks See? Happy making. They’re made of silver with enamel in three different shades of blue in a handsome Celtic-style design.

Then again, the price could be contributing to the smile on my face. Available exclusively from Thomas Pink, they’ve been marked down from $105.00 to just $69.00!

French cuffs, pretty cufflinks, extra green in my wallet…yeah, that’s a happy thought.

Harlow Can You Go?

If you’re looking for an extra touch of sparkle to put under the tree for someone special, now would be a good time to head over to Net-A-Porter. You see, they have this on sale:

Dannijo Harlow Bracelet It’s the Harlow bracelet by Dannijo. It’s made of oxidized silver chain links studded with Swarovski crystals. So pretty, so fun, so versatile.

And such a good deal, too! The Net-A-Porter usually sells it for $210.00, which is a big savings over the retail price. Right now, though, they’re selling it for a mere $126.00.

At that price maybe you can make someone you love sparkle this holiday season. What? I never said you couldn’t love you.

I Love Lemon!

Lemon quartz, that is.

I love things that sparkle, and I love color, and I love to put sparkly things in bright colors on me. You can see, then, why I went and fell in love with this charming Peridot and Lemon Quartz Pendant:

Lemon Quartz and Peridot Pendant Four carats of pretty sparkles set in white gold and strung on an 18″ chain add up to one delightful piece of jewelry. Whether you’re buying for yourself or looking for the perfect gift for someone you love, you couldn’t go far wrong with this.

The price is nearly as pretty as the necklace itself. The recommended retail is $500.00, but you won’t be paying anywhere near that much. You’re going to head over to UltraDiamonds.com. They normally carry this lovely piece for $269.99, which is a great price. But right now it’s marked all the way down to just $229.00! That’s well under half the price for all the pretty.

Oh, and for a limited time, you can get free shipping on any order over $50.00. Nice.

Remember, lemon quartz doesn’t have to be a lemon of a deal.

Deco-dently Beautiful

At this time of year one thing we all can use more of is pretty things to wear to parties. You know, things that sparkle and shine and add to the general impression that we’re dripping with good taste. That can get difficult on a budget.

Still, there are options out there. Take a look at this one:

Giles and Brother Art Deco Earrings These rather spectacular Art Deco inspired earrings by Giles and Brother will stand out at any holiday function, and then for years to come when you go out to dinner or the theater or to any formal gathering. They’re a handsome mix of antiqued brass, oxidized silver plate, and crystals that will never look out of step.

As for that budget I was talking about earlier, they won’t bend, let alone break, that. The retail price is $200.00, which really isn’t at all bad for a pair of really wonderful earrings. On the other hand, you’re not going to pay so much as that. Head over to shopbop.com where you can get them for just $140.00.

Now that’s what I call a good idea.

Friday Finds: The Santa’s Little Helper Edition

Normally I stick to things under fifty dollars on friday, but in honor of the official opening of the holiday shopping season, I’ve decided to ignore the limit this week. You’ll find goodies under fifteen dollars and others over two hundred. After all, you’ve got everyone from your Secret Santa at work to your lifelong best friend, to your immediate family on your list. You need inspiration from all price points.

Swiss Army Knife One of the handiest gadgets of all time is the classic Swiss army knife. Now Victorinox has reinvented it in a miniature size with stainless steel blades. At just 2 1/4″ long, it attaches to your key ring for your convenience. It comes with: one small knife blade, scissors, and a nail file. The practical soul on your holiday gift list will love this.

Normally, it runs $140.00, but Saks Fifth Ave is having a huge sale now through the 28th. Right now, even the sale items are on sale. The sale price on this item was $104.00, but now to Saturday it just $62.94!

Oh, and be sure to check out the bonus offers combined with the sale!  For instance, you can get free shipping by using code HOLIDAY9. If you spend at least $400.00 in Contemporary, you can get a $100.00 off card with code CONTEM9. And if you spend at least $100.00 in beauty and you can earn a $25.00 gift card with code BEAUTY9.

In the Mink

Wendy Mink Gold and Tanzanite Earrings See these? Aren’t they great? Don’t you want them to help you make a splash at holiday gatherings this year?

Wendy Mink is the one responsible for all that spectacular, and I for one would like to shake her hand. They’re gold vermeil leaves with beaded with Tanzanite for a cool touch of blue. So gorgeous. They would make a dramatic statement on nearly any set of ears.

Speaking of things your ears will enjoy, wait until you hear the price! The retail on them is an entirely reasonable $207.00. Bluefly usually carries them for just $124.00, which is a great deal. Right now, though, they’re on sale for a mere $119.99! That’s 42% off the retail.

Don’t leaf this deal behind.

It’s Hip to be Square

With the holidays coming up, we could all use a bit of extra sparkle. I like a bit of it dangling from my ears. In fact, I like something like this.

Genuine Square Aquamarine Earrings Imagine yourself at a fabulous holiday party with 1.30 carats of aquamarines adorning you. Isn’t that a wonderful image? I certainly think it is!

Oh, and to add another reason to glow, there’s the price tag. Manufacturer’s suggested price is $269.99, but right now at Finejewelers.com, these special sparklies can be yours for the bargain price of just $139.99!

Wear them in a winter wonderland with confidence…and a little Grinch smile because you’re the only one who’ll know how little you paid for them.
