Style Friday!! Didn't Notice Uh? Boo Boo Kitty wears Cookie's Ring on Empire #Empire......

Friday, February 13, 2015

Hey Everyone!!

After watching and live tweeting Empire Wednesday night, this meme showed up on my timeline.

Now I've voiced once before on twitter that Empire needs to work on fashion continuity especially in this throwback scenes with Cookie or Lucious. The clothes need to really reflect the 90s and they do but barely. That irritates me! That's another post for another day. But I wasn't expecting this?!? The same ring?

Now this could be two things....follow me on this:

A) The wardrobe department is slack as hell. I know there were other rings to be used for Boo Boo Kitty's engagement ring. Or ya'll ran out of money after purchasing ( hopefully borrowing) all of Cookie's furs. Social media and the fans of Empire are soooo serious. We notice all the nuances in the show.  Wardrobe gonna need to do better


B) This ring coincidence could be part of the storyline. This ring could have been Cookie's ring from Lucious from the past, since it was shown in a past sequence, Lucious had it while Cookie was locked up and he gave it to Boo Boo Kitty as an engagement ring. Yes? No?

A? or B? You tell me. 

Style Friday! $1 Anthropologie Dupe Earrings.....

Hey Everyone!!

Whilst pinning on my beloved Pinterest, I came across these earrings, Anthopologie Pearl Backed Studs. I love the look of the trendy pearl back earring, so clicked on the link and found out that these earrings run $44.00. I'm not shocked at the price, it's Anthropologie, sis.

Later on, I stopped into my favorite BSS( independently owned Beauty Supply Store) in Spartanburg and spotted a dupe of those same earrings!! For ONE DOLLAR! $1! They are not exact but seriously close. I grabbed up this pair and several other colored pearl pair in this style.

That's the thing about expensive jewelry/costume jewelry, if you know the trends, what certain stores carry in styles( ex: JCrew statement necklaces, Anthropologie-esque jewelry), these pieces can be found in a similar styles in less expensive stores and sites.

The real shade is....most of it comes from the same distributor oversees, the mark up is just different. I can't tell you how many times I've seen Charming Charlie $10 earrings in the BSS for a $1 or Target sell a $29.99 statement necklace and a similar necklace is WalMart for $10.

Get to checking your BSS( Beauty Supply Stores, independently owned) in your "neighborhood" or "Da Hood" for these earrings!! Also, I saw alot of similar styles of this earring on Click HERE to see the styles!
