Remember that gift card I had from Macy's that I used to buy my bcbg babies? Well if you recall, I hadn't quite used up all of it so I took a trip down to my fave store to look for some bling. I wanted something sparkly, and shiny in keeping with my crystal theme. I kinda knew what I wanted but not quite how to explain to a salesperson, plus the lady I asked wasn't exactly falling over herself to help me.
I wasn't fazed though, something about Macy's Herald Square in Manhattan just puts me in a good mood. I walked around the jewelry counters and just like that I spotted her. She was so beautiful. It was at the Eliot Danori counter that I first met her and fell in love with Alexis (that's what i've decided to call her).
She is sooo much prettier and sparklier up close. Made up of Rhodium plated sterling silver and swarovski crystals, she's just what I wanted, I just didn't know it. All along the entire necklace has crystals, even the clasp has crystals. The lady handed her to me and I tried her on. Perfect. So what did I do? Duh I swiped my card - ka-ching! Then I had a radical thought. Maybe I could find her a little sister to wear on my wrist. But the very bitchy nice saleslady said they didn't have any. As you can imagine I was in an even better mood after scoring my necklace so I just ignored her and continued to browse, hoping that maybe i'd find something that matched at another counter. Nope. I just kept coming back to Eliot.
This time I went to the other end of the counter and asked another lady who was super nice and helpful. She said 'as a matter of fact...' and started rifling through drawers . This is what she showed me:
Alexis' little sister Emily. She was a perfect match. Needless to say, my day was getting better and better. So why had that other woman told me she didn't have any? Bitch! Ok sorry maybe she was just having a bad day or something. I forgive her.
Then the very sweet, darling saleslady aka my new best friend asked if I had earrings. No I said, do you have something nice for me? (batting eyes) she said wait - I think I do. Ta da...
The twins the Brooke sisters. I couldn't give them individual names considering I wouldn't be able to tell them apart anyway.
Now how much did this all cost, you ask? Well...
Alexis was $116
Emily was $65
and Brooke(s) were $30
making the total $211
How much did I pay?
The saleslady said that Eliot Danori never went on sale but I could use coupons which I gladly did and ended up paying $136
Yup I saved $75 on my girls. I know a lot of people say it's just a scam and you really don't save anything but if I had come in without any coupons I would have had to pay full price so I did save. Yay, score! Our attire and jewelry are not included in the budget so it doesn't get deducted from there.
P.S. When I went to the site after that, I saw these babies:
A perfect match. I'm kinda tempted to trade in the Brooke sisters (shh, don't tell them I said so). We'll see, if they're still in the store on my next visit, I just might. So you likey?
