GIVEAWAY!!! Candy Shop Vintage Necklace!

I don't know about you, but there is nothing I love more than a jar full of candy.  Well, that's not exactly true.  I think I love a jar filled with candy topped off with dazzling eye candy just a little bit more!

This past Saturday, my friend Lauren hosted a Candy Shop Vintage trunk show, and as I walked into her home, I was surrounded by pastel sweets in all sorts of colors - purples and pinks, blues and greens.  There were lollipops and cupcakes and glasses filled with lemonade.  It was the perfect setting to view all of the lovely pieces of eye candy Deirdre, the purveyor of this edible and wearable sweet shop, had to offer.

I left the show on the highest of sugar highs.  Not only had I eaten way too many cherry lollipops, but I had a bag full of fabulous loot.  I am now the owner of a beautiful set of gold bangles (one of which is made of sparkling rhinestones), a lovely black and gold tassel necklace (perfect for Saints parties), a stunning vintage rhinestone bracelet (a la Betty Draper), and an adorable necklace made of gold that has a little bow which hits just at my collar bone (it reminds me very much of Carrie Bradshaw's "Carrie" necklace).  I told you - it was a fabulous loot!

After discovering that we both had our own little corners of the interwebs, Deirdre generously offered to giveaway one of her very special treats!  One lucky winner will be able to call this beautiful  Vintage Crackle Glass necklace your very own. 

Here are some other beauties you'll find at Candy Shop Vintage.

I fell in love with this ring Saturday!  It's feminine scalloped detail makes it such a beautiful and unique choice.

 This pin captures the elegance of a loosely tied satin bow.  Deirdre says that it "looks great on a blazer or scarf."  Perfect for fall!!

I agree that "these classic earrings are very Jackie O!" In perfect condition, they are the ideal accessory to complete any ladylike ensemble!


You can always tell when Saints season is here because I am drawn to all things black and gold. This bangle has so much character!  It's sassy and very fun!

Bib necklaces make such a fabulous statement.  This one is no exception.  Pair it with a plain white tee or a little black dress - either way, it'll add that something special to your look!

  3. I am in love with that dome ring......and also like the draped pearl necklace on her site. Great find!

  4. I have an EXTREMELY limited jewelry collection. I seriously need a personal accessorizor. I love accessories on other people, but I struggle to pick out accessories for myself.

    My fave piece of jewerlry is probably this multiple strand black/silver necklace which has a flower applique on it. I usually only wear it in the fall/winter becuase it's a bit dark/heavy for spring/summer.
