Have you seen this necklace at J. Crew?
I was immediately in love with it. I love all things turquoise and well, the bigger, the better.
What I wasn't crazy about was the $150 price tag. Still, I felt ready to splurge the next time J. Crew offered an online sale (not too often, for the record).
Well, last night Brandon and I shopped around a little bit at the Tanger Outlets in North Charleston. Their J. Crew is usually picked over, but I decided to walk in to browse around a little. I needed a few basic tees to pair with shorts & skirts in this warmer weather. As I approached the checkout counter, I seriously heard angels singing from Heaven.
There it was... a very, very close duplicate of the beautiful necklace in the J. Crew ad with the $150 price tag.
There it was... only one "bubble" on each side & a slightly smaller size shy of being that exact necklace I've admired for so long.
There it was, with a $69 price tag. -but wait, with a 40% off sign over the jewelry display.
...and the icing on the cake is that I still carry around my college student ID for moments like this.
(J. Crew offers an additional 15% off to students)
And that, my friends, is the story of the time I got a $150 necklace for $35.
