I held off on buying this necklace as long as I could because it seemed like it was pretty much everywhere - at least on blogdom and IG-ville - but when I found one for a smoking deal on Etsy recently, I just couldn't resist it. If you're one of the few gals who have not yet seen this piece on a blogger, it is a replica of the flower lattice necklace that J.Crew came out with a few years ago (and then came out with a similar version a few months back at their factory stores that flew out of the stores).
While I did admire the original version of this necklace when it originally came out, the retail price (I think it was $228) pretty much made my heart stop and I dismissed it pretty immediately. Plus it was really sparkly - like almost over-the-top sparkly - so I didn't think it'd be something I'd wear anyways.
Well fast-forward to the last few months when online retailers and Etsy/Ebay sellers starting rolling out replicas of this beautiful piece at much wallet-friendlier price points. I started seeing a lot of people sporting the necklace and it looked really nice. Just over-the-top enough. So I succumbed. And be prepared to see this piece a lot now.
