I was hoping the Bubble necklace would be produced in pink, and here it is. The necklace itself is more of a pink and the small beads hanging off of it are a light violet. It was hard to capture the color through a photograph (it turned a bit yellowish in my 2nd pic). The colors are more accurate in my first photo on the counter below. It is stunning and just too pretty.
The Duchess Stone necklace below did not thrill me as I had hoped. What do you think? I thought the brown would be prettier than the peachy/pink color that arrived in stores, but now I am not so sure.
I tried on the Majesty necklace in black in the store and was surprised that I liked it. Maybe even more so than the Duchess necklace! It looks huge, but was quite cute.
What do you think about these pieces?

I have so many favorite songs. I rotate through them and make my own ringtones with the Garageband App on my MacBook. Anyway, I just made a new one and the song didn't translate well into a ringtone. It is annoying every time my phone rings even though I like the song. So, I would really like some suggestions for a new tune. What are your current or past favorite ringtones?? Some of my past ringtones are:
Brown-eyed Girl--Van Morrison version
You Can't Always Get What You Want -- Rolling Stones
How Sweet It Is--James Taylor
Beautiful Soul--Jesse McCartney
And during the holidays my ringtone is ALWAYS "Santa Baby"!!! ;-)
Here is the video of the song I tried yesterday. This is from my post of the video last summer:
Have you seen this Madonna video with Mike Myers? Hysterical! He really makes me laugh. Maybe because Mike is so funny especially with Madonna doing her thing all over him. Or maybe I can't stop thinking that I really have to start working out.

Here is the J Crew jeweled satin clutch ($198), which definitely holds it own next to those paillette and pearl Valentino pumps!:
And here is Allison Aston, director of communications at Roger Vivier wearing the J Crew lace skirt ($850)--one of Fall's Collection pieces:
A J Crew gold pearl and crystal necklace (bottom left) is featured alongside other pricey fakes in the September issue of Town and Country magazine. The pearl necklace on the top right even slightly resembles the J Crew pearl cluster necklace--which would make it a steal at $125 (now on sale for $95) versus $500.

The Sabine Shirtdress Crinkle. It features a high empire waist with drawstrings that you cinch right under the bust. Love the material, soft and comfy. This is a size 2, so it was bunched up a bit, but the size 0 would have been too high on my chest. :
