I'm a huge fan of inexpensive "costume" jewelry. Don't get me wrong, I totally heart my diamonds and pearls, but sometimes, you can get away with looking completely glamorous without the hype. If you know where to look, you can find goodies that mirror your fav luxe lookalikes!
Carrie Underwood's one of my fav chicettes, and at the People's Choice Awards, she wore the prettiest jewels by Johnathon Amdt - the star jeweler behind her enormous engagement ring. Carolee's crystal drop earrings - at just $38! - pull off the very same look, no? They're the perfect length matched with an elegant strapless (love Carrie's by Christian Cota, by the way!) to show off those pretty shoulders. Wear your hair up or down because these really sparkle anyway you look at them. And now? You have room in your budget for those strappy stilettos - size 6, please!
