Yesterday was my birthday, but I’m giving away something to one of YOU! Lavishy was kind enough to provide me with another scooter necklace to give away to one lucky Any Second Now reader (silver one in the outfit post here)! The contest starts today and ends May 17, 2014. To enter, just click the link below, then follow Any Second Now and Lavishy on Facebook. . Good luck to all!
I’m a big fan of anything with a vintage feel, and I guess I was inspired by The Great Gatsby when I put this outfit together. Although my hat is really a simple beanie, the large crochet flower just reminds me girls in flapper dresses and my shoes are a nod to gentleman wearing spats. I kept my outfit from feeling too much like a costume by wearing jeans and keeping the colors limited to black and white with accents of silver.
My father bought my sister and I gold necklaces and bracelets personalized with our names back when we were five and eight years old (respectively), so I feel that I was on the “Carrie” necklace trend long before it started with “Sex and the City”. We both have since lost or misplaced those precious pieces, so I’ve been trying to find a retail or online store that will sell them at a reasonable price.
I discovered a new follower on Twitter called The Honeyroom a couple of months ago and checked out their site, which is a fashion accessory online store. Their products are inspired by celebrity, runway, vintage and retro trends in fashion. After looking through their vast collection of sunglasses, scarves, hats, and handbags, my interest was drawn to their jewelry because of their “Nameplate Necklaces” section. With an awesome discount I received when I followed them back on Twitter, I bought myself and two of my girlfriends personalized nameplate necklaces (we are very much SATC fans, but I got the necklaces in silver rather than gold). In addition to the personalized “Carrie” style necklace, they have a variety of nameplate necklaces to order from, including your Twitter username (mine below is in black).
I know there are many great choices out there for nameplate necklaces. But if you’re on a budget like me, I think the prices of the one’s found on The Honeyroom are fantastic. The package arrived fairly quickly (within 2.5 weeks), and I was very happy with the quality of the necklaces. Additionally, the folks who run the site are very responsive if you have any questions (thank you Andrea!). If you follow The Honeyroom on Twitter or Facebook, you could get additional discounts, like the 20% off I received from signing up with Twitter, and they also have an affiliate program (see my side bar). Get to know The Honeyroom and happy shopping!
