OOD 4.30.09 Lavender + The Chandelier




Well, my Lavender Jackie arrived yesterday, so what am I wearing today?  My Lavender Jackie, of course.  And since I cannot wait to debut my Chandelier Necklace (I've only worn it around the house ;) ) I will put that on and keep everything else very simple!

I am volunteering in the K all morning, then my little guy and I will just hang out in the afternoon and I might quite possibly get caught up on laundry and tackle a small corner of the playroom (I need to have Mr. Carpet Cleaner out and you can't even walk through there).

And oooh I just picked up the May issues People Style Watch and InStyle last night and flipped through... lots of cute ideas and some J Crew spotting!  I can't wait to read through in more detail.  Have a great Thursday everyone!

  2. I tried this necklace on, and I love it. But I'm going to live vicariously through you because $75 on a necklace was just too much for me.

    You rock that necklace, girl!

    Thanks KatyO! I know... it was too much for me too but for some reason I had to get it.

  5. I love the necklace and think it's worth the price. However, it looked like I had broken off a portion of a chandalier and hung it around my neck, so I left it at the store. I'm too small for it.

    Looks great on you, esp w/the Jackie. :-)

  6. Ok...am I going crazy, or was the IRL pic not up when I commented earlier?

    I have to say after seeing the pic I was definitely right...you look FABULOUS! Love the necklace on you!

  8. I was at the B-vue store on Tuesday and wanted to try on this necklace. You got it! I'm actually so glad one of my fave bloggers did. I talked another shopper into buying two colors of the Bubble necklace, she had the dusty blossom on and I told her to get the gray one too! And then I used my red Mickey card and spent my whole rewards card and had a blast. I love the B-vue store too. Anyway, lovely necklace on you with the cardy too. Great piece. So glad you got it!

  10. I love that lavender on you! And the necklace doesn't look too large at all.. Maybe the cardigan helps it not look overwhelming as well?

    (P.S.. After you posted about that cute watch you found at Nordstroms for $14, I had to go take a peek and they had ONE white one left! I am in love with it and can't wait to wear it all the time! Thanks!)

  14. Thank you Gigi, SGM, mrs.a and BLC!
    FFM - you're not crazy! what I usually do for OOD posts is write them up and post a PV early morning before anyone else wakes up, in my jammies and drinking coffee. Then if we have time before we head out the door, I snap a quick pic and add it to the post!
    Trish - oh no! Yes, I got the last one... I just couldn't leave it. I am hoping they get more so people can try on/see in person. I'm glad you had a blast with the Red Card!
    Jillle - you are so right on the "ice"... and this thing is so sparkly in the sunshine! Total Sparkleworks. I feel so blingy bling today. :)
    Hill - so glad you found the watch - and the last one! - I love mine.
    Simply Me - thanks so much for the compliment and welcome!!
    Jemma Ruby - I hope you love it!

  15. Lovely outfit and I love the necklace on you. I couldn't comment before because I hadn't seen this IRL, but they had it in the store when I tried the cutwave dress and it looked beautiful. I haven't tried it because I think I'm too short for a double layer of crystals like this and I bought many necklaces recently that I still have to wear!

  16. So soft and pretty, the lav.Jackie w/ the new necklace, you're rockin it! :)

  17. Love the necklace and the Jackie - you look gorgeous!! I saw the necklace in store today, but didn't even try it because I was worried about the weight of it - so I will just admire from afar...

  18. Thank you Ema, caliglam and HeidiG! Heidi, you're right it is heavy, but I love it :)

  19. ohhhhh, i just found out about the necklace through a bigger closet's blog. OMG!!!!! it looks great on you!!!!! Honestly, when I saw it in the store, i was immediately intimidated by it's ginormous size (yes, patina, the queen of ginormous jewelry) but I must say you are wearing it well.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Thank you Patina!! Yes, I was intimidated by the size at first. I tried it on last Friday and didn't buy, then thought about it all weekend, and went back on Sunday and bought it! Love! :)

  21. I LOVE the lavender cardigan, and the necklace truly looks great on you! There is no way I could pull it off.

  22. The combo of the Lavender Jackie and the necklace are so pretty together!

    I saw the necklace at my B&M but it was too big for me. I am going to try and recreate it. Micheals had some of the clear beads for el cheapo.

  23. thanks Milly :) Emily - good luck! I bet this would be fun to make and so great if you can create a custom one sized just for you! :)
