If you want something bad enough…

You just have to go out and get it. Hi, I’m Jules and I have an obsession with hunting things down that and are hard to find. The most recent example of this behavior is for this necklace:



I saw it on MCW’s blog (love her), thought it would be perfect for spring and summer and had to have it. I went to my local Target and they had recently sold out (isn’t this always the way?). I had them print out a list of stores that might have one on hand and went down the list. A store in Delaware had one left and agreed to hold it for me. Geof was a trooper and drove down there with me (it really wasn’t that far). Victory is mine!

I love this necklace and the hunt was worth it.

That necklace is gorgeous!! So glad you were able to track it down! I've been known to travel states and blow off my responsibilities to hunt down something I fell in love with, so it's nice to know I'm not alone in doing that...lol! And that necklace was definitely worth the drive to Delaware!

Girl, I know what you mean. I've spent hours hunting down an item I really wanted. I love the necklace... so glad you found it. It will be perfect for the warmer weather!

Stephanie said...

ooh! That is super cute! I love this chunky necklaces and the broach works really well with it! Great find! I wish I lived close enough to other states to be able to just drive over and get something! :)It would be at least 6-8 hours to get to another state from CA and then you are just in the middle of the desert!

Tasha said...
