As the name suggests, Mimi's The Look for Less is an online boutique that offers designer jewelry looks for less, from J.Crew's bubble necklace to David Yurman's cable ring. The quality is nowhere near that of the originals, but the affordable prices mean you can add a little sparkle to your day without a big investment.
Mimi's sent me a few items to try out for myself, including some neon stud earrings and a faux-leather wrap bracelet. I wouldn't have selected these items for myself, but it was a thoughtful gesture, proving Mimi's has courteous customer service. Also, they've extended a coupon code to BB readers in case you're looking for a little bling yourself. The code is BUDGETBABE, and it will be good for 15% off your entire order thru August 3, 2012.
Here, my top picks:
1. Tangerine Double Drop Statement Necklace, $48
2. Orange and Gold Circle Earrings with Diamond Center, $18
3. Cable and Crystal Ring with Black Stone, $32
4. Coral and Gold Enamel Stretch Bracelet, $20
5. Mixed Metals Watch, $25
