So Nice, I Bought It Twice: No. 1
May 27, 2021
This week, I’d like to start a new feature discussing the things I loved so much that I bought them again. And again. And, occasionally, again.
Welcome to So Nice, I Bought It Twice.
I would like to thank Samantha for sending me the bad news this morning: Stella & Dot is retiring my beloved Rebel pendant. This pendant comes in white, yellow, or rose-tone metal. And it’s simple, geometric shape pairs well with any outfit.
When she said they were discontinuing it, I rushed to the sale to pick one up. If you buy one item from the sale, the pendant is $65. If you buy two, it’s 20% off. Three, 30%. And so on.
So what did I do? I bought two Rebel pendants. I also snapped up this cute silver/gold coin necklace and this very affordable pearl pendant. So I essentially got the two Rebels for the price of one. Hopefully, by the time they both wear out in 10-12 years, I’ll have found another necklace that I like as much.
As you know, I am not one of those bloggers who takes a sample of every face cream that comes onto the market and pronounces it a must have. If you ever see a post of me applying L’Oreal Revitalift while sitting on my patio in a glamorous, designer sundress, send help. Because, if that occurs, I am either being held hostage or deeply in debt to the mob and trying to work it off with disingenuous sponsorships.
But this Peter Thomas Roth Niacinamide Dark Spot Treatment…ladies, this s**t works.
I wish I had taken a “before” photo of why my right cheek looked like last week. Angry, red, spotted, acne covered. Charcoal masks wouldn’t work. Drawing salves wouldn’t work. Toner wouldn’t work. I was about to pay $1,200 for a micro-needle package, until I remembered this cream (which I ran out of during the pandemic and didn’t immediately rebuy, so my bad).
Four days later. Acne gone. Redness gone. Dark spots diminished. I could cry I’m so grateful. but instead, I will just tell you to buy the damn cream.
I don’t promote Memorial Day Sales, because that’s not what Memorial Day is for. But I feel obligated to tell you that the Nordstrom Half Yearly sale is on right now, and that a few of my favorite things are in stock.
First, this Halogen V-Neck Top. I own this top in two colors, and it is the perfect under-blazer blouse. If they made more solid colors, I would own more of them.
Second, these Chinese Laundry Rumor Sandals are the most comfortable high heel I ever worn to an event. The block heel, the ankle strap — if you have a wedding this summer, snap up a pair. I have the gold and snake.
This Ouai (pronounced-WAY) Volume Spray is a game changer. I am on my third bottle. It gives me the perfect amount of volume, not Texas big, not pasted to my head like a Seattle-filmed teen movie in the 90s.
Spray on. Blow Dry. Enjoy all-day lift.
