Win a J. Crew Necklace!


And now, we reveal the lovely prize available to win — a J. Crew links necklace.

Made of tortoiseshell resin, the 40-inch chain has a 14K shiny, gold-plated brass closure. The necklace retailed for $50. It's a great piece for spring. How cute would it look with a simple white tee or a classic button-down?

And, it can be yours.

Here's what you've gotta do: If you're not already, become a follower! Then, leave your name and e-mail in the comments section and tell us what outfit you'd pair with the necklace. The contest will run for a week, until next Wednesday. A winner will be randomly selected.

Good luck!

Thanks for reading. :)

What a lovely necklace and I love pretty much all things tortoiseshell pattern or color! I broke my tortoiseshell bangle bracelet from last year so I was in need of another replacement jewelry...
I would love to wear this with my white tissue v-neck boyfriend tee and unagi tweed pencil skirt in sepia and of course my tortoise Joley peep toe heels. I could also pair this with my chambray popover shirt over white matchstick denim and same shoes. (I need to go over to polyvore now!)
Thank you so much for a chance at this great Giveaway!

I think I'd wear this with a pair of black, wide-legged trousers and a crisp white blouse (high collar, buttons down the front, similar to this if the link workds black ballet flats.

Howdy - I've been following, but didn't realize I was doing it anonymously. Fixed that.

I'd pair the necklace with an in-the-now navy/white striped dress, light bold belt and some awesome shoes. That honey color has been popular through winter and still is.

I'd wear this to work with a gray short sleeve knit dress and teal flats. And it would definitely work with a white boyfriend shirt over dark denim skinny jeans.

Nice blog. I just became a follower and didn't realize how easy that is to do and am enjoying your topics.

Just became a follower (came here from Gigi's blog). Love that necklace. Honestly, I would most likely wear it with a tee and jeans. But right now, I would love it with my dark charcoal cashmere turtleneck, white jeans, and my yellow Born Lovely flats (don't laugh, that's the model name - Lovely...but they are lovely).

Nicole Elizabeth said...

I also became a follower from Gigi's blog, and really like your style. Glad I found your blog. I would wear the necklace with my dark Hudson bootcut jeans, a plain white gap v-neck tee and navy cardigan and my black patent leather Dansko clogs.

Just became a follower since I am only fueling the flames of my J.Crew obsession lately! I think I would wear it with a 3/4 sleeve white button down, pewter gray sweater vest, and fabulous wool twill trousers in a medium brown. Probably my pair of sparkly silver flats for a comfortable, fun finish :-)

Someone else directed via Gigi! Great contest! I'd love this with my navy J Crew sweater dress from a few years back. Or with jeans, a graphic black and white tee and a black blazer.

How fun is this! Thanks for the contest opportunity and thanks FFM for the notice.

I love this necklace. Classic with a bit of whimsey and plenty of punch. I dream of wearing this with a crisp white shirt for spring with a variety of bottoms. The white would make the necklace pop and give that easy tension between the classic button down and the unexpected scale of the links. Modern and Fresh. Thanks again! Crew Cricket

YAY! A chance to win this BEAUTY! I love tortoise jewelry but really only have some bangles from many years ago. This would be so pretty come Spring!

I could see mostly wearing this casual with just a cute white tee, a longer chocolate brown cardi, some rough khaki shorts and studded gladiators. I would also love it with a white perfect shirt (sleeves rolled up/collar slightly popped;) a slouchy cardigan, rough rolled denim jeans, serengeti belt and cork wedges.

I am visualizing it on me and sending out strong vibes that it is coming to me (a la "The Secret") Ha, ha!
Thanks for the opportunity!!

i just became a follower and iam glad that i found your blog.
i would wear the neclace with my COH jeans,a white ruffle button-down,serengeti belt and cognac peep-toes from unisa.

I am Julia and my address is jeweledflag3athotmaildotcom.

The awesome thing about this necklace is that is would look so awesome layered!! Because of its different texture I would layer it with some of my metal and beaded necklaces (both Jcrew and non) and it would work for casual or work. Casual I would probably wear it with a v-neck tee and jeans with a grandpa cardigan. For work it would go well with any collared shirt and pencil skirt combo.


Conster said...

hi--I would wear this with a simple white sweater or tee with dark jeans. Very cute!

Meredith said...

very cute! Love all the outfit ideas above; I'd probably try wrapping this around my wrist a few times, and pairing it with a sunny yellow and white striped tank, white jackie, dark skinny capri jeans and wooden heel sandals!

and I'm a follower! thanks for hosting!

Super cute! I would wear it with a fitted tee tucked into the stripy cotton lawn skirt from Lands' End Canvas with cute flats.

Love this blog!

I would wear this necklace with the stretch twill minnies in blackberry, the vintage bateau top in navy, the Galle metallic suede espadrilles in gold, and the slim square buckled belt in gold!

I am so excited to have found another great blog. Signing up to be a follower as soon as I post this comment. :)

I have a lot of items that would look lovely with this necklace, but I think I should wear it with my turtleneck in vintage forest, a pair of golden colored cords, and my salina patent flats in peacock. Delish!

Great giveaway! :)
