Well, new costume jewelry to be exact! But i love it either way. How pretty are those gift boxes?

From JewelMint earrings and necklaces to vintage treasures and a sparkly hair pin, to more new earrings and necklaces from new jewelry line TplusJ, I’m kind of excited to wear all my new pieces this season.

When I first heard about JewelMint via a Kate Bosworth ad, I assumed it was like any other celebrity designer line: ridiculously overpriced. But I was wrong! For a monthly $29.99 membership fee, you get one item of your choice and if you don’t choose anything that month, you don’t pay the $29.99. It’s kind of genius really. And while these items are just under 30$, they actually look quite expensive. JewelMint generously gifted my two choices to review an I have to say, I LOVE THEM!

I found these huge gold and mother of pearl clip on earrings at one of my favorite thrift shops {American Cancer Society Discovery Shop} last week and thought I’d use them as shoe embellishments instead.

So 60’s! So Fabulous!

Maybe I’ll wear them on the side… or on the back?

I also found the two earrings below at the American Cancer Society Discovery Thrift Shop and thought I’d convert the gold clip-on chandelier earrings to pierced. The fun tortoise shell pseudo-hoops are fairly large. If you make a C with your first finger and thumb, you’ll get a feeling of their size.

As a preview to their new collection, M & J Bridal Salon sent me this GORGEOUS rhinestone hair pin. It’s just so delicate and ladylike yet modern and bold, it’s perfect. Maybe I’ll use it for my halloween costume?

I’m dripping with fabulous earrings right now!

Tiffany of T+J Designs sent over these two earrings which I adore. The Gold and Black Twisted Hoop Crystal Earrings are only $38.00 {I’ve already worn them here} and speaking of Kate Bosworth, these very vintage-looking Blue Crush earrings are also only $38 and could also work as part of my halloween costume.

And last but certainly not least {in fact, my favorite photo of the bunch} the Delicate Link Metal Chain Necklace also from T+J for $58 will go with everything because it’s silver and gold!

And a final big THANK YOU to the wonderful designers, big and small, old and up and coming, who send me their fabulous items to add to my wardrobe on a regular basis. It’s not why I blog but it’s definitely an added perk 🙂
