Weekend Finds. . .Girlprops and other accessory hunts

Good morning stars!

This weekend I kinda went accessory-crazy. A friend and I had a lunch date in the West Village, and decided to take a trip to the Girlprops store, a favorite website for lots of the bloggers and fashionistas, myself included.

Let me tell you that the store is very. . .bright, and has a colorful bunch of people working there. Most of what's on the website can be found in the store, and even more eclectic pieces can be found in-store. I wanted to take pics, but it's not allowed in the store, which is understandable. There were some things that were cheaper in the store, and some things that I remembered being cheaper on the website, but that wasn't to big a deal to me because the shipping would probably balance that out. I spent $23. . .and here's what I got.



These 2 rings were $1.99 each.


My girlfriend loved these glasses; I tried them on and liked them too. $9.99

Forgive this shiny, early morning pic. Me without my makeup, LOL


Now these were just weird, and different. So I had to have them. $1.99 too.


Now in my job, I can't go as wild with my earrings as I normally do, so I LOVE that the button earring trend has come back. I bought these mainly to wear to work. $2.99


Overall, I loved my trip to GirlProps, and will definitely return. Anyone who loves the site, or "inexpensive" jewelry should make a point to visit if ever near or visiting NY.



Now I found these pairs en route to GirlProps. The street vendor told us he made them himself. I love "negotiating" prices on the street, and we talked him into 3 pair for $5. My girlfriend grabbed a few cute pairs as well.

These final pair were found at a little store in Jersey City near Journal Square. I had never been down JFK Blvd, but I'm glad I took that turn on Saturday morning. I found a bunch of little clothing stores, beauty supply stores, and a Goodwill! I was too excited, but I didn't have enough time to explore so I'm adding that to my list of shopping adventures. Anyway, here are the 2 pairs. $1 each.

So that was my weekend, hope yours was full of fabulous finds as well!

Girl Props is so much fun. I mentioned it not too long ago on my blog also. You never know what you're going to find!

Wow! I had no idea Girl Props had a brick and mortar store. Someday I'll visit, but for now, I guess I'll haunt the website.
