We all know I'm a huge fan of the statement necklace - see here, here, and here to confirm! Nothing I love more than some major rhinestones or colorful beads jangling around my neck. J.Crew started carrying their bubble necklace sometime last year and from the moment I saw it in stores, I was in love:
But there was no way I was spending $150 on a necklace, especially if it looked exactly like the one I bought from H&M last summer for $14:
I REALLY loved this necklace though. I held out hope it would eventually go on sale, but no such luck. And then, one day, a little bird told me that eBay had TONS of bubble necklaces - for INSANELY low prices! I rushed over to a computer to investigate, and lo and behold, it was true. Bubble necklaces as far as the eye could see, and in a whole rainbow of colors!
I bought a red one on the spot, and it arrived a couple days ago - the seller ships from China, so it took a while to get here. But you guys - it is virtually IDENTICAL to the real J.Crew one. Look how cute!
My friend Alyson blogged about this score a few days ago too, after I had already written this post, but I thought it was important enough to share with all of you too :) so if you're a fan too, save your money and hit up eBay! Let me know if you get one!
