Style Diary: Barry Brinker necklace

Who  knows better than you, what you want for Christmas?.  That is why I am a huge proponent of wishlists, registries and even picking out your own gifts.  Being such a fashionista and being so visual, I am a picky person when it comes to my own stuff.  I have a very distinct style and know exactly what I want so I’m all for receiving gift cards, cash, shopping sprees or helping out with not so subtle hints.  Take that with the fact that I’m not big on surprises and well you have a wifey who buys herself her own Christmas gifts on behalf of her hubby.

I had fun shopping for myself this past Christmas.  And it was so easy given I work at Saks Fifth Avenue.  During our Barry Brinker personal appearance and trunk show, I fell so much in love with a piece that I called my hubby and thanked him for getting me exactly what I wanted this year. (Yes i chose my own gift without consulting him first hehe)

It’s a one-of-a-kind piece and there is no other like it.  Barry joined 3 brooches that he found while in Paris and attached them to this gorgeous genuine topaz surrounded by white sapphires.  It’s so sparkly and such a statement piece.   I couldn’t believe how beautifully they packaged it too.  I almost thought they gave me the wrong package because the jewelry box was as large as a box you would receive for a sweater except this one when you opened it, was lined in grey silk!

Here I am with the designer at Saks.

Here’s a close-up of what I wore (mom’s vintage dress hemmed, H&M cardigan, BCBG shoes)

And here I am wearing the necklace for the first time at work.

In the above photo I’m wearing slacks from Tracy Reese, an Ann Taylor silk tank top with a cardigan from Express.  I love the fur stole but can’t remember where I bought it and the purse is Hello Kitty (I probably can’t get away with using this much longer). See it styled again here.
