Weeds Fashion: Jill Price-Gray Peasant Top

Sadly, I'm a few weeks behind on my Weeds viewing.  I recently watched Episode 6, Allosaurus Crush Castle, and I must say that I'm really digging the clothes this season.

Nancy Botwin Scottson Reyes has truly perfected the suburban sexpot aesthetic.  And her sister Jill Price-Gray has definitely copied a few plays from Nancy's fashion handbook (could that also be the reason why she's managed to hook the perpetually hunky Andy AND the lovable scoundrel Doug?)  Jill was rocking the casual cool in an airy silk peasant top, jeans and wedges.

Good news! Jill's top is still in stores and you can have one all your own! It's available here. It's also available in a lovely marigold shade here and here.

Sublime Look for Less: Alexis Bittar Miss Havisham Teardrop Earrings

Three words come to mind when I think of Alexis Bittar's entire jewelry collection:


And then....I see the price tag, which is always a shock to the system. Now, I know for certain that Alexis Bittar pieces are beautifully crafted and well worth the investment.  But don't you want a quick fix every now and again?

Fortunately, I found a lovely dupe of the $175 Alexis Bittar Miss Havisham Medium Crystal Encrusted Earrings.  And they're only $24 with free shipping! They are a near perfect match and textured and rhinestone encrusted to the hilt.  (the shape is a little different, but we'll take it!)

I actually think that I prefer the $24 version.  How about you?  Feel free to share your opinion in the comments.
