Spotted: Turquoise Pineapple NecklaceAKA Squash Blossom NecklaceTroop Beverly Hills



I knew there was a reason I settled on Troop Beverly Hills last night over Juno to fall asleep to …not that Juno is not amazing, because it is BUT had I left it on Juno, I would have never known that Shelley Long wears yet another version of the turquoise pineapple necklace in the movie. And yes, even though it was past midnight and I had to get up for work this morning, I JUMPED out of bed to grab my camera and document it. {as if I were NEVER going to watch Troop Beverly Hills again …I mean, come on, it’s a classic!}

    I love that movie. I love everyone in it. I love that Jenny Lewis is in that movie! My favorite montage is when they have to earn the patches! And of course, I thought their outfits were so awesome in the 80’s. I wanted to be in a troop beverly hills.

    The best bit is seeing little Jenny Lewis before she became sultry Miss Rilo Kiley. & I had no idea Tori Spelling was in it, too…

    🙂 I love that you jumped out of bed to take a picture of it…that’s something I would do! except we don’t have a tv in the bedroom…I’m reading the Twlight saga…I’m on New Moon. So lately I’m falling asleep and fighting to stay awake for one more page bc it’s so freaking addicting that I can’t stop.

    Love, Love, Love it. I’m not embarrassed to admit I own Troop Beverly Hills on DVD. I used to love the whole Phyllis Neffler fashion vibe, though now it definitely comes off as a little cupcake-y.

    I was at the Long Beach flea market today and spotted your pineapple necklace in a jewelry case. I totally thought of you and this blog. The price was listed at a hefty $995!!!! Crazy!

    (first comment but I’ve been stalking for awhile *grin*)

    Just thought I would tell ya that the necklace is actually called a Navajo Squash Blossom Necklace. Here is a link if you want to read about the origin of it. Im Navajo and my grandma used to have about 5 of these, I never knew that someone would think they were cool.
    I know that they can be pretty expensive when they are made with real turquoise. Well just thought I would share that. Heres the link….
