I didn’t have much time to go thrifting this past week, so instead, I’m sharing with you my recent thrifty (i.e. affordable) find! I went to Walmart this past week in search of party supplies for my blogiversary party (more to come on that), and happened to walk by the jewelry department. A friend on Instagram mentioned that she found very affordable necklaces at there, and cute ones too! So I was excited to see the quality of the necklaces myself. To my surprise, they were well made and the variety of colors was amazing! Check out some of the ones I picked up:
Cute colors, right? And guess, what? They were only $5 a piece! Comparable necklaces at other stores are often at least $10 a piece. So I picked up a couple for me and a few more as gifts. Remember, Christmas is right around the corner! I also usually like to have gifts like these on hand to give as impromptu hostess gifts, teacher gifts, etc.
The two I was most excited about were the mint and yellow necklaces.
I loved pairing the mint necklace with this bright red blazer (similar: Forever 21) and white top (Gus Mayer). I think the softness of the mint is unexpected and nicely juxtaposed with the bold red color of the jacket.
The yellow necklace, on the other hand, adds a bright pop of color to most outfits, but particularly appealing against black, as is shown here with this black Zara top.
A print black and white dress (similar: Forever 21) can be overwhelmed with a busy necklace, so a monochromatic, beaded necklace like this one works well against a print fabric.
Pretty thrifty, right?? Not too shabby for $5 a necklace! I’d love to hear your opinions on the necklaces and/or the pairings above. Comment below with your thoughts!
Until next time! Stay Chic!
