Recent purchases (Sam Edelman Rose Gold Gigi sandals, J.Crew necklace dupes & Beauty Products) and Outfit of the day

Someone needs to keep me away from Winners (TJMaxx chain store)! EVERY time I go there, I come away with amazing items that I don't need but can't resist. My favorite recent find were these Sam Edelman Rose Gold Gigi sandals - on clearance for $18!!! These sandals are usually sold for $65, though they're on sale here for $35.

I also found this beautiful cream bib necklace that reminds me of the J.Crew Tessellate necklace. Such a pretty statement piece - it's light and easy to wear. The green necklace is not from Winners, it's a $15 eBay dupe of the J.Crew Bubble necklace - it took 6 weeks to arrive and one of the beads was loose (but it was easily fixed) - I think I prefer the quality of this to H&M's version.

Back to Winners purchases - I found a body wash I used to LOVE when I lived in England (the Sanctuary wash from Boots) and Pacifica Body Butters in Tahitian Gardenia and Coconut Crushed Pearl (so fragrant and long-lasting). I also got the postcard-style makeup bag from the CARGO Safari kit. From Shoppers Drug Mart I picked up a new mascara, eyeliner and moisturizer.

I've also acquired a lot of nailpolishes over the past few weeks: The famous Sky from Hard Candy, Tomato from JoeFresh and a yellow Essence polish. In Winners I found 3 Essie polishes for $12 - including Berry Hard, which I've been looking for ever since I saw Bobbi Brown wearing it on TV.

Here's my outfit of the day (we went to a kid's birthday party & ran errands). I wore an Old Navy Maxi dress, American Eagle Denim jacket, Bubble necklace dupe and LV Speedy 25 bag.

My last picture is an item I rescued from my mother - it's a nameplate bracelet she doesn't wear anymore - it's the perfect addition to my arm candy - I love looking down and seeing her name:
Michael Kors Rose Gold Watch, Pandora Bracelet and gold bracelets from my mother and grandmother

Do you have any J.Crew necklaces or dupes? Do you like wearing your mother's jewelry?

    1. 4 bubble dupes - lucky! What colors are they? I loved the tiny mini bubble necklaces advertised on group dealz, but they're US only :-(
