10th Commandment: September 12

H&M Resin Chain Necklace ($13)

I’m a bit of an odd bird in the blog world because I actually like cheap jewelry.  I have a handful of nicer staples, but most of my jewelry comes from discount shops or thrift stores and cost under-$20.  I want to wear something a lot, get bored with it and then replace it with something new.

This resin chain necklace from H&M is just the kind of thing I’m looking to buy.  It makes a statement, but it’s still subtle.  I also love this pack of 15 super-skinny bracelets.  These dangly, almost-Egyptian Revival earrings are also a lot of fun for a Friday night.

Another great place to find jewelry that won’t break the bank?  Sole Society.  This Jasper bangle is on the higher end of what I like to spend, but it is worth every penny.  On the more affordable side, I love these geometric mini-hoops.  And do not miss this $20 square bangle, perfect for layering.

Need a way to keep the metal tone on your cheap jewelry?  Give them a spritz with Krylon Crystal Clear Acrylic Spray.

    I’m in the same boat with my jewelry. I can’t stand spending a ton on it because I’ll get tired of it, though I do hate when a cheaper piece of jewelry wears out before I’m tired of it (this has happened to me several times with Banana Republic stuff).

    Belle the acrylic spray idea is GENIUS. SHEER GENIUS. I can’t tell you how many cheap pieces I’ve loved that have met their untimely end due to starting to look tarnished. I’m doing this on my beloved ‘B’ bracelet tonight!

    I love getting jewelry from H&M and Forever 21. H&M has some great stud sets. Also, Francesca’s Collections has AMAZING earrings!

    Hehe..Even I prefer going for cheap jewelry most of the times ! I guess its not that bad

    On the acrylic coat – does it work to keep metals from irritating your skin? I love a good cheap statement necklace but I find that if I wear some for more than an hour my neck starts to itch like crazy from the fake metal. Could spraying this on prevent that from happening?

The Find: A Miracle T-Shirt

Remember when clothes didn’t suck? The years were the late-90s and early-aughts. Jeans stretched a little, but were mostly cotton. Cashmere was soft and heavy and durable. Poly-blends were only sold at the giant teens stores on the lower level of the mall. And t-shirts were thick, not see-through, and wore like iron. Your first […]
