You could say I'm easily impressed...

Angela over at Love at First Shoe has been talking about the store Charming Charlie for months now, and the amazing accessories she always picks up from the place made me a little sad, because I thought it was a local store, for some reason.

So, imagine my (probably inappropriately excessive, since we're just talking about jewelry here, but that's who I am, I guess...) joy when my mother-in-law told me about this great shop relatively near her house that I just had to visit, because the amount of accessories housed in one place was something I'd enjoy.

She knows me so well.

I only spent about twenty minutes in the store, while we were waiting for a table to open up at a nearby restaurant, and I still managed to walk out with three necklaces, a bracelet, and a pair of earrings. Not bad for an abbreviated day's work. Imagine the damage I could do if I spent some real time in the place?

I am literally (said in your best Rob-Lowe-on-Parks-and-Rec voice, naturally) giddy with anticipation...

Sweater: Gap

  3. This same thing just happened to me. Two people recently told me about Charming Charlies, and I too assumed it was a local store. I had to check it out, and somehow restrained myself to walking out with three sale bracelets and a super cheap pearl necklace. LOVE that place already.

  5. Hehehe, how does your cat always know when you're taking outfit pics!? Sixth sense, I tell ya.

    Oh man, your trip to Charming Charlie is like mine whenever I step foot into F21. It doesn't help the accessories section is always right by the front door. Can.not.resist!

    I think these knotted, lanyard-type necklaces are underrated. They sure are a classic to me and goes with so many outfits!
