Friday Finds for Less

I have recently developed an obsession for statement necklaces and I blame Instagram! In the past, I rarely ever wore them or any other type of necklace for that matter because I didn't know what to wear them with! Now, I find myself planning an entire outfit around the necklace I want to wear. With that being said, it is hard not to love all of the gorgeous pieces that are in J.Crew's line up. I want them all, but unfortunately my budget won't allow that. While perusing Etsy I stumbled across a few J.Crew looks for less and decided to put them together with a few others I found at Forever 21.

I have ordered a few items from various sellers on Etsy and have had good luck so far although I know some have not been so lucky. I would recommend contacting the seller regarding their return/exchange policies prior to making your purchase. Also, keep in mind that some of the items are being shipped from China and may take longer than others to arrive. I was able to find a seller that has a shipping turnaround time of 7-10 business days which is far better than the typical 4-6 weeks!
Friday Finds for Less
J.Crew Light Citron Sunflower Necklace   vs. Forever 21 Mint Faux Stone Fringe Necklace
J.Crew Neon Azalea Sunflower Necklace vs.  Forever 21 Coral Faux Stone Fringe Necklace
J.Crew Crystal Drops Necklace vs. Etsy Candy Gem Drop Necklace 
  J.Crew Neon Rose Crystal Necklace vs. Etsy Rose Crystals Necklace     

You can purchase all of the J.Crew look for less items for $111 which is still $37 less than the price of the J.Crew Crystal Drops Necklace! 

What do you think of the J.Crew looks for less above?
Would you choose to splurge or save?

  8. I am all over statement necklaces too! J Crew has some beautiful ones, but you're right, way too expensive for a girl on a budget! In addition to Etsy and F21, I've also found some great deals The Loft and Baublebar.

  9. I love these posts because I refuse to pay for statement jewelry for some reason! I just don't wear it enough but Etsy is such a great resource for fun pieces and I love that candy gem drop necklace! xx
