J Crew’s beaded rose necklace ($128) is sold out. So of course now you really want it. I know, me too. However, if I look at the scale of the flowers, it’s probably not a match for me. When I saw this beaded cream flower bib necklace ($16.99) at Target, I thought of the J Crew necklace.
See a smaller scale, but still very pretty DIY version of the J Crew rose necklace on My Little Secrets.
ETA: Thanks for sharing, Paula!
Kohl’s Apt. 9 gold tone bead flower necklace ($24) – Kohl’s usually has promos going on in-store. Be sure to check their site for any printable coupons you an use on top of the promos. If you’re a cardholder, you’re in luck because they often have really good promos like the 30% off one Paula mentioned in the comments. If you go into the store & they don’t have it in stock, you can order it from a kiosk and you will get free shipping.
ETA: Banana Republic pearly bloom necklace ($89.50) jumping into the ring for the smAcKdoWn. This is how I wanted the Target necklace to look. More flower blooms. I thought about getting a 2nd necklace and putting the two together, but I know I won’t do it. I’m fine w/the Target one as-is, 3 blooms.
Would you rather find/hunt down/pay for the J Crew beaded rose necklace? Or is the Target version fine by you? I personally like the Target version. I know how I am with these things. I’ll wear them 5, 6, 7 times and be onto something else. The Target price is right. You could get both colors & still come out way ahead when compared to $128 for J Crew.
