sideways cross

as seen on TV…

A gaggle of celebrities have been rocking the sideways cross necklace.  Conveniently, as far as I know, there isn’t a particular brand that all of young (and not so young) Hollywood is wearing. Celebs like Kelly Ripa (pictured below), J-Lo, Kourtney Kardashian, Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez have all been photographed wearing them.

Now, I’m am not one to run out a shop the latest trends but I really like this style.
On a weekend trip to the city (when referencing “the city”, please assume I am talking about New York) to visit some friends, I was introduced to this great little shop in Brooklyn Heights, Ruby and Jenna.  Not only did I purchase myself a sideways cross necklace but I also picked up a matching bracelet.
Honestly, I hadn’t been eyeing any particular one but in doing a quick online search I saw necklaces run from around $30 to well over $100.  I’ve seen them in little fancy boutiques in Miami for $40+.
My necklace from Ruby and Jenna was $10 and the matching bracelet, only $9.  Although they were not on sale, they were also not ridiculously marked up because of the trend.
I know impulse buying, contrary to popular belief, can be very fulfilling but I promise it is so much more when you get to share the great price you scored too.
