MANDLA No.10: The Power of Style is....nailing a bargain!

J. Crew Vs New Look

I know, I know, it's not a fair match but when it comes to the battle of the statement necklace, all is fair in love and budget. Besides, it's not how much you spend, it's what  you get for your money.

Both J. Crew and New Look have a loyal following of customers that swarm their jewellery racks, and this afternoon I executed a perfect low flying swoop on this fun and glamourous bubble necklace from New Look on sale for £3!! 
I'm looking forward to teaming this with anything I can get away with: black midi dress, grey tee, crisp fitted shirt... endless possibilities...

Necklace from New Look
New Look are fantastic for delivering on-the-minute high fashion for those on a budget at reduced and full price.

Now, let me just say, I LOVE J.Crew! When I lived in New York, J. Crew's Madison Ave store was right outside my office building and quickly became my reward, therapy and fitness centre - fitness because strong-arming their sale rack should be an olympic event!
However, as I clicked onto their site at random this evening to search for something else, I stumbled on an almost identical item for £127!

Bubble Necklace

J. Crew produce stunning pieces and whether you can afford the non-sale items or you're restricted to a budget, they're worth checking out because they often have items to suit all wallets.
