David Yurman Designer Jewelry: Splurge vs. Steal

When it comes to designer jewelry, David Yurman is always a name I keep coming back to. His designs are just exquisite. One of my favorite parts of his collection are his colored-stone pendants. They are available in almost every color you can think of but my personal favorite is the minty green.

Well, as it turns out, you don’t need to break the bank in order to enjoy the beautiful look of a David Yurman-esque colored stone surrounded by diamonds. Take a guess at how much the pendant from Overstock–which includes diamonds–costs. Big difference! If you really want to get the David Yurman look down to a t, put the look-a-like pendant onto a box chain.

Sandals with Stones and Jewels

As more and more stores begin displaying their spring and summer shoe inventory, I’m seeing an increasing number of earth-tone sandals that are adorned with stones, jewels, medallions and beads. I guess this is 2010’s answer to last  year’s hardware trend. I’m loving it–it’s like jewelry for your feet!

Pink Pumps Make the World Go Round

This may be my favorite StealThisDress! post to date. Pink heels! What more could you ask for? If your style is similar to mine, nothing. The shows below, all of which I found on Zappos, to me all scream Carrie Bradshaw and it’s fabulous. Just imagine how amazing any of these pairs would look with a dark-colored dress or dark jeans and a fancy top.

My favorite pair is probably the second one from the top. That jewel-encrusted heel is to die for. Let’s see, only about three more months until it gets warm enough to wear shoes like these outside. Here’s to a summer of pink pumps coming soon!
