Pretty Baubles: Ann Taylor Faux Pearl NecklacesDecember 10, 2012
I ordered these necklaces some time ago but forgot to post about them. Ann Taylor is running a special promotion on shoes and accessories today (use code SHOES for 50% off all shoes and accessories) so all of these necklaces are eligible for the discount if you want to give them a try.
Ann Taylor Pave Pyramid Clasp Pearlized Necklace - $68
I was really excited about this necklace but did not love it in person. I liked the multi-strand style but thought the faux pearls looked cheap in person (even more so than usual). Aside from the questionable material, I liked the length and the unique clasp.
Ann Taylor Short Jeweled Clasp Pearlized Necklace - $68
The size of these faux pearls is too "costume-y" and exaggerated and contradicts the elegance that a pearl necklace is supposed to lend an outfit. The bejeweled closure was difficult to undo but is a rather pretty accent.
The matching Jeweled Clasp Pearlized Bracelet is better reviewed so I think it has potential.
Ann Taylor Large Pearlized Bead and Crystal Statement Necklace - $125
This necklace has been on my radar since late summer - it was an online only item so I knew getting a deal on it would be difficult. As raving reviews trickle onto the website, I watched the available quantities slowly dwindle until it sold out two months later at full price. When Ann Taylor restocked this item, I quickly made my purchase and never looked back. I liked the drama and complexity of this necklace and can see myself wearing it frequently.
I am eying a few more items online but haven't yet made up my mind to complete a purchase.
The 50% off sale is not limited to jewelry - if you are in need of scarves (Jewels Print Oblong Silk Scarf, Shoe Print Silk Square Scarf, Leopard Print Oblong Silk Scarf, and Accessory Print Silk Square Scarf), or tights (perfect tights, modern control top tight, opaque high waist tights, sheer high waist tights, and reversible tights), now's a good time to pick them up for cheaper.
And if you need to replace your perfect pumps (reviewed here and here), there are plenty of sizes, colors, and leather types available online.
