The Coveted Bubble Necklace


By now, you're all familiar with the super popular J.Crew bubble necklace:


But for a whopping $150, I never envisioned justifying the price tag.  

Then an amazing thing happened.

Katie, from Keep Calm and Carry On, blogged about finding a knock-off on Ebay...for not half off, or even 75% off...try $15.  Yep...you heard me right.  $15!!!  And according to her review, it was actually well made and looked almost identical!  Well, for $15, I was willing to go for it.  And believe me, I'm not very trusting of Ebay at all.  Especially when it comes all the way from China {interesting side note...the necklace was shipped from Shenzhen, China, which is where one of my very best friends is living right now!  How ironic and serendipitous is that?!}.  

It finally came this past Monday...and I have to say, I LOVE it!


It's a great size and color and I am already having a blast putting all the pairing possibilities together!

In fact, I'm kicking myself for not buying it in more colors! 

You can buy your very own here.

And because this little beauty came too late to take with my maternity photos...I did a little impromptu shoot in my backyard.


The real photos will be MUCH better...promise!  ;)

Hope you're having a great Thursday!

  2. It's gorgeous! It looks EXACTLY like the real thing (sadly it may be the real thing and J. Crew just charges so much for it.) Love it with your white dress and cute belly. :)

  17. I ordered it too but it has not arrived! SO glad to hear it's actually really nice and it looks so cute on you.

    I feel bad that I am wearing a knock off but Jcrew needs to simmer down with $150 necklaces...

  37. You look flippin amazing! I'm so glad to hear you liked it because I ordered one a couple of days ago and was worrying it would look bad when it showed up.

    ReplyDelete

  39. Haha, too funny, I ordered mine at the beginning of this week! But in the coral...hope it's as cute as yours!! You look amazing, btw!!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Insane! I wouldn't be surprised if those are "leftovers" from J.Crew or those that didn't pass quality or whatever standards. I have never bought anything on ebay before, but I think this deserves the first time right? Gorgeous! And you're looking gorgeous too!

    ReplyDelete
  41. i'm glad to hear you liked yours; i ordered the yellow one off of ebay and cant wait to get it!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Gorgeous photo!! I'm still thinking about purchasing...it's just a little larger than I'm used to. Maybe I'll just grab one anyway!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Ok you sold me on it, going to order! You look amazing in your white dress! All belly my friend! Can't wait to see the real pictures!

    ReplyDelete
  46. i love the white on white monochromatic look with a big pop of color! you look fab btw!

    ReplyDelete
  47. It's funny I was cruising ebay a few weeks ago and came across that seller. Wasn't sure if I could trust them since they had some bad reviews about the quality. I actually bought the necklace you're wearing from the J. Crew outlet for around $40.

    You look great and wearing your pregnancy well!

    ReplyDelete
  48. What a great find!! I may have to do some eBay scoping myself!

    ReplyDelete
  49. you like GORG in that pic with the white tank and necklace! what a cute preg lady you are!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Okay - I broke down and purchased the necklace today!

    How long did it take for yours to arrive?

    Once it gets here will have to do a big blogger necklace link up!

    ReplyDelete
  51. I must be the only one who hated mine from ebay! It was such terrible quality and just looked like junk. I was so sad!
