How to rock fabulous jewels and actually stay on budget.

jewel.001 Oh jewels, How I love thee!? I’m liking a freaking child, wave something shiny in front of me and forget it... distracted for hours. I actually worked at Tiffany and Co... can you imagine!? I pretty much just wanted to try stuff on all day. Good thing that was seasonal. Moving on, jewelry is a big part of your wedding day, but it really doesn’t have to cost a million bucks. I mean lets get real, who can actually afford “real” pieces unless they are hand-me-downs or daddy owns a hotel chain. So unless you’ve recently come into money, let’s assume that you are looking for some bargain jewelry... Everything I am picturing today is under 100 dollars!!! Holy heck yeah!!!


Okay. When it comes to jewelry I have two go-to spots that always have beautiful and well priced products. Good ole’ Banana Republic and J.Crew. At both places you get a quality product at reasonable prices. Can you ask for any more?! Both stores understand the current trends, but also capture a timeless chic that I really just love. I know what you are thinking... J.Crew!?! It’s as far from a bargain as you can possibly get. Whoa there. Hold your horses. It’s true J.Crew is absurd when it comes to their clothes. Don’t get me wrong, they are super cute, but they are also super expensive. The two deals that you can find there are the reasonably priced wedding dresses and the jewelry. Now these baubles aren’t cheap, but they are really well made and compared to the real deal they are crazy inexpensive. So do me a favor and check our Banana and J.Crew for some ah-mazing deals. Banana’s sale bin in the store will blow your mind, the downside is, of course, you don’t know what you are gonna get at your local, but you can find brilliant deals. So what’s the harm!? Definitely check that out before making a purchase.

jewel.003Now, another favorite of mine is! This online retailer will fill your heart with joy. They have an ah-mazing selection of shoes, bags, apparel, and wait for it... JEWELRY! Yay!! This store rocks my socks. I am in love. And with fun and affordable designers like, Hive and Honey, Sequin, and Tinely Road, you are guaranteed to find pieces that you love. They also carry big brands like, House of Harlow, Juicy Couture, and Marc by Marc Jacobs. It’s quickly becoming one of my favorite places to shop. It’s wonderful because it also offers free shipping and returns. Ahhhhh, hassle free, my favorite.

Until we meet again, stay bridal and stay baller.
