Review and GIVEAWAY: ($400 in prizes!), ends 10/31

Disclosure:  This is a Fashionista Event. I was given a promotional item to review by to share my opinions about the website. All opinions are my own.

Whether I'm going to the movies, out for dinner, or just hanging out with friends, I like to accessorize with jewelry. I actually don't let myself buy earrings anymore because I have so many of them, but I'm always on the hunt for a good necklace or bracelet.

There's a new website in town that gives you designer fashion at reduced prices, named (, and recently I was given the opportunity to review the website in exchange for $70 in credit.

About was founded by Clay and Elly Bethune in the spring of 2013 with a mission to bring its members fabulous fashion from the best handmade and independent designers. We realize it is extremely difficult to sort through and discover handmade fashion geared towards the "fashionista." Search no longer. Exclusive deals handpicked by our buyers will be delivered daily to our users inbox.

You'll never guess what I ordered first ... earrings!! Ha. All of the earrings on the site were too pretty to resist. I ended up ordering these, the "Blue Chandelier Earrings" - I'm a huge fan of vintage-looking pieces, and I also love dangly earrings.

So gorgeous!

I wear the earrings to work or any place I want to look nice, and I've received a ton of compliments on them already. I have one shirt that almost exactly matches the blue in the earrings, as well, and they look nice together.

For my second piece of jewelry, I chose one of the first pieces that caught my eye, also very vintage-looking - a Swarovski Crystal Emerald Green Necklace, which you can find here. This is a piece that I will want to wear for special occasions, although it could also be used to dress up a nice blouse or dress for work, as well.

The artists themselves are responsible for shipping their jewelry or items, so I received two separate packages, both very nicely put together:

J&J Jewels sent me the Swarovski necklace

The earrings were wrapped very nicely!
