hoop dreams . . .

i am not the girl with the extensive jewelry collection . . . .  i am more the type to find a couple of nice pieces and wear them day-in-and-day-out without change until i stumble across another piece that captures my fascination.  it is only when i am seriously moved that i change my jewelry.  i know martha (who has an amazing jewelry collection) is cringing as she reads this!!!  but i get hooked on a vibe and it could last 10 months to a year.  i am pleased to report, now is THAT time – i have found a new earring!!   the fall/winter 2014 collection for céline featured a black hoop with everything. . . and i . . . am . . . CRAZY for it!  céline is not sold online, so i will have to muster my courage to call a store and inquire about pricing (being ready to pretend to have poor cell service and then hang up quickly if the price is out of my league).  also, they do not feature the hoops along with the other jewelry on the website (maybe they are not yet available?).  i have already conducted a huge internet sweep for a good knock-off (love a good knock-off!) but so far no major contenders . . .  but there are two options i am working on.  while there is little chance that the $6 pair from amazon will somehow miracuously not look like they cost $6 when it arrives next week, with the free shipping offer, it is def worth a shot.  also, i found a pair of black-plated sterling silver at gemologica (?) that is promising but i have no idea what to expect.  fingers crossed!!  there is still plenty of time — you can’t keep your hoop dreams down . . . xo, cg (more later on the shear socks and pointy-loafers . . .) celine-black-hoop-earrings celine-black-hoop-earrings-black-dress celine-black-hoop-earrings-black-overcoat celine-black-hoop-earrings-black-pants-white-top celine-black-hoop-earrings-black-shear-dress celine-black-hoop-earrings-blue-white-pleated-dress

at $6.16 from amazon with free shipping, i do not have my hopes up high for these hoops. i’ll keep you posted. . .

at $72, these black-plated sterling silver (???) from gemologica were worth a shot as well . . . more promising that the $6 pair but, still . . .
