We don’t often feature jewelry here on InTheirCloset but we felt that the Tiffany Legacy Collection Aquamarine Ring probably deserved an entry. After all, at $6,400 I can’t imagine an item more worthy of a “Real vs. Steal” post. The Tiffany site describes this ring as being evocative of the “Edwardian Period” and I can certainly see some Belle Époque royal donning this stunner on her index finger. Today, however, this ring, featuring a 1.26 aquamarine and a mess of round brilliant diamonds, would be the ideal cocktail ring. If you’ve got money to spare. Which I do not (hello, closet full of Forever 21 jewelry!).

Set in white gold (the Tiffany ring is set in platinum), this gorgeous bague is also available with a citrine, amethyst (love!) and green amethyst stone.

When the H&M Garden Collection debuted last week, and promptly flew off shelves, I had a feeling that a floral revolution was upon us. I, myself, have been lusting after a floral bustier for what feels like ages. Of course the onset of spring always brings with it a love of all things abloom, but this year feels especially flowery. Clearly our favorite starlets are just as besotted – and with the floral mini-skirt in particular. It feels fresh and young and pairs equally well with knee-high boots as it does with sky-high heels. I don’t always advocate jumping on the trend wagon but in this case all I can say is “welcome aboard”.

I have been really loving open-weave sweaters ever since they showed up on the Rodarte runways last year (or was it 2008?). I even dragged a good friend to 3 different stores where I proceeded to purchase 2 very-much-alike versions of the trend (hey, one is black and white and the other is multi-colored!). Anyway, enough about me. Alexander Wang has come out with a spring version of the open-weave sweater that I think is to-die-for. I love how it can just as easily be layered over a bathing-suit or paired with denim leggings. We’ve featured Wang here before, on InTheirCloset, however, so I think you know what comes next. An exorbitant price-tag of course! Sigh.

ASOS Crochet Holey Jumper

ASOS has blessedly created a version of the Alexander Wang Lattice Bobble Sweater that is both more real-world appropriate and real-wallet friendly. Many of the details from the original are there, including color-choice, but if you’re looking for the oversized fit that the original has, I would definitely size up. An awesome addition to any wardrobe (I’m especially digging the white for summer) and a great price.

When I was asked if I’d like to do a scarf review for Affordable Scarves (now renamed to Scarves.net), I jumped at the chance. You see, I love scarves. I’ve been wearing silk, wool, velvet, linen, cotton, and fur scarves for many years. Scarves are my friends. Forever.

Affordable Scarves is exactly what it touts itself to be: an online scarf retailer with an extensive collection of scarves at affordable prices. The majority of the site’s inventory falls between $10 and $20 (and there’s a 15% off promo special running at the moment, so they are super cheap). With prices that inexpensive, you should know that these are not Hermés-quality scarves, but they are functional and fun, and for under 20 bucks, I’d say that’s exactly the point. The site is very user-friendly and you can search for scarves by color, material, season, shape, size and trend. They also offer free shipping on orders over $30. So I made my choice, and in no time, this Leopard Print Wrap arrived at my door…

Vahni & Her Leopard Print Wrap

I have to admit, I couldn’t wait for this scarf to arrive, for two reasons: I have no other leopard print scarves and this print has been showing up on scarves everywhere over the last year. I opened the package and unfurled the wrap, and honey, it kept going and going and going! I guess I didn’t pay much attention to the dimensions (76″ L x 52″ W) when I ordered it… it is indeed the size of a wrap, and a big one. But more about that in a minute.

So I knew the scarf is polyester, and while polyester is a wonder fabric, part of me wished it was linen or cotton, just so it felt a little softer. But I have to admit that the fabric lends itself well with this wrap—the print is crisp and vibrant; despite the size, it’s not bulky; and it launders like a champ. In the photos above, the photo on the left was taken after the scarf was washed in a lingerie bag on a normal cycle and air-dried. The photos on the right were taken before it was washed. No difference…and notice how it ties up into a knot that fits in your hand. That means it would be a fantastic piece for traveling.

In terms of wearability, the Affordable Scarves Leopard Print Wrap is unbelievably versatile. You can do a traditional scarf look, wear it as a wrap, or as a sarong or bathing suit cover-up. It stays put, which is nice, and the one thing about silkier scarves I don’t like—they tend to slide. I wore it as a scarf, and I draped it around the back of my neck and belted it over a tank top and it looked great.

Bottom Line

Overall, I really love this wrap and would recommend it to anyone who is comfortable wearing a large wrap/scarf. It is chic, inexpensive, and statement-making—meets all my requirements!

PROS:

  • Gorgeous print—black and grey is a fresh take on leopard
  • Versatile—wear it as a scarf, wrap, or sarong
  • Great price—a low-cost way to work the animal print trend into your wardrobe

CONS:

  • Wished it was a natural fabric or blend with linen or cotton
  • Might be too large for a petite woman
  • Synthetic fabric might make it uncomfortable if worn as a summer scarf
