J. Crew Cuff Love

My name is Ms. Pink Martinis and Pearls and I have a huge problem.


Especially cuffs.

Oh my!

Someone, please stop me!
(but don’t try too hard.)

How pretty would either of these be with my J. Crew black metallic scarf I bought yesterday and the white one with a soft tarnished-look silver threading I’m going back to get today?

Okay. Maybe I have another problem since NYC.


But aren’t problems more fun in pairs?

I think so.

Crystal Cluster Cuff $88
Pearl Cobblestone Bracelet $78
Chunky Black Metallic Scarf $59.50 in J. Crew stores
*Argento Vivo Sterling Hoops ~ Nordstrom $48

*At the mall yesterday I locked my keys in my car and left my phone at home. I waited in the parking structure for almost 2 hours for AAA (they missed my floor the first time). After being rescued from my ordeal of leaning up against the bumper with wind chill factor and asphyxiation added to the mix, I felt I needed an additional treat and went back into Nordstrom and bought the earrings.

Don’t judge me too harshly. A girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do.
It was either the earrings or the Halloween candy for my boys from See’s that was going to be riding shotgun on the long, hungry ride to meet Mr. P.M. for dinner. I saw it as a crisis intervention and wore the hoops to dinner where they enjoyed a fine Chianti. πŸ™‚

Have a sparkling weekend, friends. πŸ™‚

  1. I am in LOVE w/ the pearl cuff. ::sigh::

    And waiting for AAA can be tedious (although thank heavens for them! They’ve saved me and my car a few times), so I believe that you deserved the earrings.

  2. My fave’s the pearl cuff too. Darn, GradGirl doesn’t work at JC anymore!

    Cars these days still let you lock your keys inside? I don’t think my Volvo would let me do that, it won’t turn off w/o the key out! πŸ˜‰

  3. Well, now I understand why you are on the West Coast, and I am on the East; if we were in meeting distance we would soon be enabling each other in these harmless addictions. Next, we would set up a lab to mix up our own scarves and cuffs. In no time, I would have you hooked on shoes, as well. Who knows where it would all end?! Have a great weekend!

  4. I just sent you an e-mail via the button on the right side of your blog, but it was returned to me. I wanted to thank you so much for the beautiful bag I won from Queen Bee Studios. I just love it! I just did a post about it, so take a peek. Thanks again! Wendy
    I just did a post (finally) to thank you for the beautiful bag from Queen Bee Studios! I just adore it and wanted to thank you again!



  5. Carole ~ Thank you soul sister! πŸ™‚

    SJN ~ I left them on the passenger seat after I hit the button to lock the car. I have no idea how I did this. πŸ™‚ xoxo

    T&C ~ Uh oh. I’m already there with shoes as I bought 5 pairs before my trip and am going back today to buy a pair at Steve Madden. A cute little flat with a zipper in the back. We would be dangerous for eachother but just think how much fun we’d have! πŸ™‚ xoxo

    Twist of Lime ~ I was just wondering yesterday if you had received it. I’m so glad you like it. Aren’t they wonderful? πŸ™‚ xoxo

  6. I am sorry for your crisis PM but, you really made me smile and laugh today, thanks gal!!

  7. I think all of us girlies are like this! I love those J Crew earrings. Gold hoops are my favorite kind of earrings!

  8. You are so funny and make me smile! I am in love with the pearl cuff–so pretty! And yes, you did deserve those earrings! I hope you are well and happy these days. I have been busy with “life” this month. Miss you!

  9. No judgement here my friend!
    I am guilty of a little cuff obsession lately too. I can’t get enough of them, they look super with everything. Love the pearl cuff!!

  10. But what about Lynn’s (RHOC) Cuff Love? πŸ˜‰

  11. Yes, you definitely deserved a “present” after that ordeal! xoxo
