The two best kind of purchases you can make are those that are either a crazy good bargain or one that gives back and helps others. Well, one of my newest sponsors happens to be doing BOTH and I am thrilled to share this new venture with you guys! Pretty Please Jewelry Shop was started by two former Tiffany & Co. employees who wanted to marry their love of jewelry and charitable work. They operate on a ONE FOR ONE business model where for every piece sold, one will be donated to both local and national women/children related foundations such as Dress for Success, BrightPink.org, NoMore.org., and Boston Children’s Hospital. And for the month of June they are working with the ONE Fund Boston, a cause near and dear to us here in Boston, giving a little sparkle and joy to women directly affected by the marathon bombings (victims, nurses, first responders, family members of victims, etc.) How wonderful is that?
Not to mention the stuff is adorable, fun and completely affordable. I haven’t seen anything on their site for more than $50! But this is no ordinary online store- they sell their pieces via Facebook, a new phenomenon in the retail industry (read more in this article from Inc. Magazine). To purchase you need to go to their site, “Like” their page and then visit every Tuesday and Thursday evenings at 8pm when they post their latest selection of offerings. When you see something you like, you comments with your e-mail address and they will e-mail you a PayPal payment request to complete the purchase. Simple as that.
Here are some fun selections from recent sales! I hope you’ll check them out!
Some styling tips with a few PP items:
These earrings with this adorable halter top!
Or this badass necklace with this equally badass jumpsuit.
Turquoise beads always look amazing with white summer dresses (just not with those shoes, okay?)
A pretty mint scarf with a fab perforated tank (BTW, everything on Banana is 40% off today!)
