    there are tons of knockoffs of that jcrew bubble necklace on ebay around 20!, also
    check out the merona wedge at target (they have fun colors online) almost identical to the kate spade for 40 bucks

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this blog. I got some great ideas even tho I am probably above your target audience (late 40’s), I love wearing colored denim but still try to be age appropriate. Thank you so much for the great ideas.

    Thank you so much for this post. I just had the only successful shopping day of my life. Decluttered my wardrobe and started again with a structured list. I went for a peacock colour theme.

    Mixing this and Joan Watsons style from elementary. I got several pieces already. For those who are budget minded maybe try treandsgal.com instead. Moving on as far as I can see you take one brightly colored piece (the stripe dress) and draw all the colors from there. I’m excited, I’ve never had but, always wanted a cohesive style. Thank you so much.
