All right, ladies! Have I got a deal for you today!!!
I’ve had TONS of e-mails (like probably close to 40-50) over the last 6 weeks asking about where to find the glitter studs from the junior’s department at Nordstrom.
I’m afraid I have bad news, because they were discontinued. I have absolutely no idea why they discontinued them, but they did. #shameonyounordstrom #thatwasdumb #weboughtthoseearringslikecrazy 🙂
Everybody that had e-mailed me remembered giving them for teacher gifts the last couple of years on the cute little Christmas tree cards that my friend Andrea designed…and people were wanting to do the same this year. Everybody was so disappointed that they were no longer available! When I told them the BP studs were gone, they asked for options, but the only option I had was the Kate Spade glitter studs. Sadly, the Kate Spade studs are of course quite a bit more expensive that the BP version ($32 for the mini and $38 for the large), putting them out of range for many for teacher gifts (especially those with multiple kids and multiple teachers). In addition to the expense, the colors are now very limited in the Kate Spade version and have been for quite awhile.
WELL! I’VE GOT GREAT NEWS FOR EVERYBODY! TODAY I’VE GOT A NEW OPTION FOR YOU!
My girls at Accessory Concierge came through for us! Check out these GORGEOUS GLITTER STUDS! LOOK HOW SPARKLY THEY ARE!!!! If I had to pick my favorite 3 colors, I would say the silver, the pink multi color, and the aqua. Although I really love the micro silver glitter and the gold too. Truly, I love them all. They are absolutely beautiful in person.
There are 11 different color options, so there’s sure to be something for everybody! They are smaller than the BP studs, which I know most of you will be excited about! The biggest complaints I received about the BP studs is that they were “too chunky” and that the posts were “too long”. Well, these aren’t as chunky AND the posts are shorter. I call that a #winwin.
LOOK! HOW! PRETTY!
But y’all….it doesn’t stop at just the earrings…
Here’s the FABULOUS, AMAZING, GENIUS idea that everybody is going to go CRAZY over….
My friends at Accessory Concierge and I started talking about an idea for teacher gifts several weeks ago, so they asked their graphics department to cook up an idea for gifting. And what was created is wayyyyyyyyy cuter and wayyyyyyyyy more clever than I ever could have imagined.
HOW. DARLING. IS. THIS. And how proud would you be to gift this to somebody? I think the entire presentation looks so festive and polished! The graphic is fun and colorful, I think “A LITTLE HOLIDAY DECOR FOR YOU…” is just so clever, and the earrings look great punched through the ornaments!
I MEAN! SO STINKIN’ CUTE!
And here’s the best part.
UPDATE as of 6:00 a.m. Wednesday morning: The code is only working right now for $13 off the total (instead of $13 off each pair of earrings), but they are working on fixing it right now! I’m hopeful the fix will happen very soon!!!!
UPDATE as of 7:20 a.m. Wednesday morning: The code is now working!!! YAY!!!
With the code STMTglitter, you can get the following for ONLY $13: a pair of earrings (you choose the color!)….the DARLING card with the graphic…and the box (TOTALLY READY FOR GIFTING)!!!!! The code is good until Thursday night at midnight.
This is an outstanding deal considering that without the code, the earrings alone are generally $26! And the standard shipping of $6 applies for as many earrings as you want to order. You can buy 8 pairs of earrings (and request 8 cards and 8 boxes), and you’ll still just pay one flat $6 shipping fee for all 8 gift sets.
And think about it! You don’t have to print anything off (if your printer is anything like my printer, it often doesn’t work…is out of ink….etc. ), you don’t have to buy a bag, you don’t have to arrange tissue paper (that NEVER ends up looking good anyway), you don’t have to leave the house, and most importantly…you don’t have to think about what they heck you are going to give anymore!
So, your teacher gifts are DONE!
Who else would these little boxes be great for? Think Co-Workers! Besties! Sisters! Your Hair Girl…and the list goes on!!! I really can’t think of anybody who wouldn’t love to receive this as a gift! And don’t forget the specials teachers (art, p.e., music) or therapists (speech, ot, pt) that are often forgotten! For $13 you can treat everybody!
Now, you can of course put more than 1 pair of earrings on a card if you wish. As you can see, the card above has two pairs of earrings on it. One pair would obviously be fine, but you could even do 3! 4! or 5! You can make this gift fit your personal gifting budget. Now, if you are ordering 5 pairs of earrings, and you plan on putting them all on one card (your teacher will LOVE her earring wardrobe! ha!), then you can say in the “SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS” box that you only need 1 card and 1 box. Like this……
The above “special instructions” box appears after you place the earrings in your cart and GO TO YOUR CART. Please make sure you notate how many boxes you need. We really don’t want to be wasteful with the boxes and have them just be thrown away if you don’t need them. THANK YOU!
And girls, I really love these earrings. I am going to be so excited to gift these little earring packages this year! Don’t forget to use the code STMTglitter to reduce the price from $26 to $13!!!
I love the size of these more than last year’s BP ones, and I love the color options and the price way more than the Kate Spade option.
I wore the silver ones to the OU/TCU game over the weekend, and they were very comfortable the entire day. In fact, I didn’t even have to take them off to talk on the phone, and I have to do that often.
Before you go today, I thought I would give you some ideas of outfits to wear with these studs. These are outfits you’ve already seen on the blog..and many of you probably already have 1 or 2 of the pieces….and now you can see what studs look good with the outfits!
I think the black or the silver would look best with this lounge wear. And let’s be real, put on earrings, and you can totally wear this out of the house. 🙂
This turquoise sweatshirt and grey jeans combo looks great with both the turquoise and the pink multi studs!
This outfit is already pretty festive with the pink necklace, leopard belt, and red Hunter boots…..but the red glitter or red multi studs make it even more fun!
The must have tunic with the sassy over the knee black boots would look great with either the gold glitter or the black glitter studs!
This turquoise fleece top is vibrant, and I think it looks great with the mini silver glitter or the purple multi studs.
This red sweater has definitely been a GO TO sweater for me in the last couple of weeks, and I know it will be working over time through December! It looks great with the red glitter, the pink multi, and the gold glitter!
And this neutral outfit looks great with the mini silver glitter, the gold glitter, the silver, and the black!
I’m so hoping that this post was super helpful to ya’ll. The holidays are always so much fun, but I know they can also be stressful, trying to figure out what to gift to everybody. I hope today’s post made it easier for you! A HUGE THANK YOU to my friends at Accessory Concierge for putting these incredible gift boxes together and doing the work for all of us! We appreciate you!!!!
