Francesca’s Haul (In Virginia!)

Since you all know me (and I hope you do, or else I will be very hurt) you shouldn’t be surprised that my Virginia haul didn’t end with all that museum jewelry I bought.

I also stopped in at Francesca’s in the Pentagon City Mall. It was in my first time visiting one.


There was a sale going on when I showed up. The blue stud earrings and the round disc drop earrings were BOGO 1/2 off.

Here are the pretty blue ones. I chose these because I think I need more conservative jewelry in case I get invited to The White House.

Or at least imagine that I got invited to The White House.


I like the squarish shape of them. I try not to get stuck in a rut by buying perfectly round studs all the time.

And having just said that……..

Here are my new, perfectly round studs. I am nothing if not contradictory.

I like to imagine I am not contradictory.


I really enjoy the look of these. They feature one CZ stone in a CZ halo setting.


These round disc drop earrings remind me of the Mappin and Webb Empress earrings. 



I got them because I like to imagine I own the Mappin and Webb Empress earrings.

I do a lot of imagining, in case you didn’t realize. It helps me get through life.

Which one is your favorite?
