My Kind of Bar

I recently came across a website called Bauble Bar (referral link here) and was immediately drawn to the gorgeous and affordable jewelry on the site. The selection is huge and obviously well-liked as many pieces are already waitlisted. I guess I may be a little late to the bar because their jewelry has been featured in many magazines and worn by celebrities. I was immediately smitten with these pieces:
Rose Dome Ring
Inverted Dome Ring
Cushion Peach Drops
Last time I looked, a single piece cost anywhere from an inexpensive $18 to a maximum of $250. I also really like that they give you free shipping and free returns on orders over $30 (and no sales tax unless you're in New York) so you can try out the jewelry commitment free. I also received a code for $10 off my first order when I signed up. I like so many items - I can't decide. 

Note: I found pieces here that remind me of Amrita Singh earrings, Chan Luu wrap bracelets, and Rebecca Minkoff pyramid stud bracelets, but for way way less too.

What would you buy from the Bauble Bar?

Weeview: See Kai Run

A couple of weeks ago, I ordered 2 pairs of cute See Kai Run sandals from zulily (see deal post here).

Aesthetically, the sandals were adorable. The leather was soft and the soles were flexible but sturdy. I liked the round rubber dots on the bottom of the shoe, which I imagine would provide good traction for a new walker on a slippery surface.

One thing I hadn't considered before buying these shoes was toe cleavage. I adore baby feet, and I think most people do, but it was not a look I had expected. If this is an issue for you, I'd recommend going with the mary janes (see e.g., herehere, and here) instead.
