So, in response to Anonymous’ very welcome feedback, here are some fun, equally chic yet budget-friendly ideas, so you can treat yourself (or a friend!) without breaking the bank. And since most of these items are just under the mark, price-wise, tomorrow I will be featuring items that come in under $25! I hope you enjoy these lists as much as I enjoyed researching them!
Bedecked Brooch Necklace, $48: Anthropologie has more than twenty-five necklaces under $50, so there is something for almost every girl, but I love this one for its girliness and sheer impact, and the fact that it looks so much more expensive than it is!
Jeweled Headband, $26.50: Classic with a twist, this jeweled black headband easily updates any Jackie-O-inspired ensemble!
Ribbon Teardrop Choker, about $39.50: Loft is offering 40% off everything with code HOLIDAY, which brings this amazing necklace in at under $40. Not your thing? They have several other stunners.
Jessica McClintock Sequin Clutch, $42.99: A lot of dazzle for a little dough. : ) This bag brightens up the most basic black ensemble!
Zigzag Zipper Clutch, around $42: J. Crew has an extra 30% off sale items, which brings this of-the-moment clutch in under budget. And the designer-inspired details make it look like you paid so much more!
Feather Collar, $48: This black feathered collar makes a dramatic statement. Try pairing it with your most boring cardigan or a prim little shift.
Deena & Ozzy Sequin Stretch Belt, $28: This sparkly gold waist-cincher will turn that black sweaterdress into a style statement.
Beaded Trim Wrap, $47.99: Toss this filmy wrap over your shoulders for a little warmth and a lot of glamour.
