The Gold Standard

by - Thursday, April 03, 2014

After seeing this gold chain necklace on Elle late last year (plus reading her rave review), it became a must check out in person item. I loved the heavy weight and shimmery-ness, but was content waiting for the right sale. When the first 40% sale rolled around, I was sad to learn that the necklace had sold out. Back to the waiting game. Then the next 40% sale started and I saw that the necklace was back in stock... but jewelry (among others) were excluded (the same promo is actually going on starting today with code SPRINGUP). Finally, during yet another 40% off sale a couple weeks ago, I was able to grab the necklace at a discount. As the saying goes, third time's the charm.

  1. The necklace goes great with that sweater. And I really like that tee underneath the sweater!
