Real vs. Steal – J.Crew Bubble Necklace

I’ve seen this statement necklace at J.Crew all summer long and lusted after it shamelessly. But I have a rule: don’t overpay for costume jewelry. While this was one of those cases, it was hard to pass up since it’s as gorgeous as can be and incredibly flattering. But I would have to limit myself to just one color; I imagined wearing it with my whole summer wardrobe and taking it on this summmer’s beach vacation. It goes with everything from tank tops and jeans to the ultimate party dress and everything in between. When choosing a color, I thought to focus on something that would highlight my features over a shade that would match my wardrobe. But now, the game has changed. You can get the same necklace for way less! Scroll down to check out the steal!

BaubleBar Princesse Bib Necklace

Yes, this version from BaubleBar is virtually indistinguishable. As of right now they only have the coral shade, but it’s such a flattering one to pretty much every skin tone because it’s warm and instantly brings color to your cheeks. This color would look great with navy, turquoise, camel, fuchsia, teal, etc! It’s absolutely perfect and at $38, you really can’t pass it up. Wear it with a simple peplum dress in deep pink for a modern, colorblocked look or with dark blue jeans and a crewneck white tee to add some instant polish to your Saturday “just running errands”-outfit.

    You can also get these on eBayebay for $10 with free shipping from China.

  • I went to Charlotte Russe last week and they have a similar necklace in coral, mint and black. Matching earrings as well – faceted stones.
    Charming Charlie also has one in purple – more round stones, like Jcrew’s.
