Jewelry Sale!

by Migdalia Rivera

When seasons change, styles change which is the best time to catch the sales. Since I’m a frugal shopper I tend to go into shopping mode around these times.

One of the ways I update my look is with jewelry, especially costume jewelry. They make an old worn out outfit seem new in my eyes. Best of all the pieces can be worn with a variety of styles without losing their Latinalicious flair!

I found the pieces below in the Banana Republic – Jewelry Sale.

What do you think?

1.  Women: Puzzle bracelet – Silver

Women: Puzzle bracelet - Silver

2. Women: Beaded flowerbed ring – Coral

3. Women: Sunray bead necklace – Orange

4.
Women: Oval links cuff – Gold

I can totally imagine using No. 2 & 3 above with a flowing sundress and a cardigan during the fall season or with a button down shirt, a pair of skinny jeans and my winter boots.

Ultimately, as long as I can justify the expense with more than one outfit or see myself using the pieces for several seasons to come its Latinalicious piece. If not, I pass on the sale. What about you? Do you shop on the splurge or do you need to justify the expense before purchasing?

Inquiring Nosy minds (me!) want to know!

All of the pieces are beautiful but my favorite has to be the chunky ring! Love that color!

I love jewelry. Especially funky/unique pieces and if it’s on sale, I love it even more. I’ve never purchased jewelry with a specific outfit in mind, but I may consider doing that because it may cut down on impulse buys as well as pieces that look too similar.

I have started to get into accessories because like you said they are cheap and can update and dress up any outfit. I do like the cuff and the puzzle bracelet. I’m dying for a cuff this year to add to my collection. I love to mix and match my jewelry.

My favorite would have to be the silver puzzle bracelet and the coral beaded ring.

For all those that like the ring…check out Avon. Avon has a similar piece for about $15.
