One of my arguably unhelpful talents is my uncanny ability to misplace expensive jewelry.
Got a priceless heirloom engagement ring that you want to get off your hands? Loan it to me for a day!! 🙂 That pear-shaped monstrosity you got from your mother-in-law? I’ll make sure you never see it again.
My friend, this is why I primarily stick to costume jewelry. Sure, some of it might turn my finger green someday, but when the inevitable occurs and it decides to “free itself from my clutches,” I won’t be financially crushed by it.
To that end…
I saw these cute and dainty pieces by Universal Thread at Target the other day… Swoon!
They have some heft to them, so they don’t feel cheap. Quality-wise, they’re similar to what you’d get at LOFT, so a little better than “starter” costume jewelry from Charming Charlie or Forever21, but not as substantial as something from Ann Taylor, Kendra Scott or Kate Spade.
So, perfect if you’re on a budget but want something to jooj up a plain white tee and jeans or cutoffs. Also good if you want something to wear to the beach that you don’t have to constantly worry about losing.
Um…who else gets confused by this logo?
I know it’s for “A New Day,” one of Target’s lines, but I always see “And EA WY.”
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. TGIF!!!!!! Who wants to play hooky with me today and go to the beach? I can fit four of us in my Mazda.
