I went to a wedding several years ago and thought I was set. I spent more time than I should have shopping for a great dress to wear and even my husband had some new threads for the event. It was a beach wedding and we were sharing a house with some friends. I went and asked one of the girls if the dress looked ok (thinking maybe I needed a sweater) and she asked the simple question, “Looks great, but what are you wearing with it?” Since then I have been trying to ask myself that very question whenever I get ready to go out. The problem is, jewelry can be so expensive! I’m not talking about the “real” stuff either. To get a few nice sets of jewelry, it seems like you have to spend more money than you ever want to… or settle for product that brings absolutely nothing to your outfit.
I’ve recently started looking online for better jewelry; better prices and better quality. I’m happy to say that I find that when I shop Katie Leigh. Katie Leigh is an online accessory boutique based in Raleigh. That means I can not only feel good about the products I am getting, but I can also feel good supporting local business. (If you want to know more about the women of Katie Leigh, check out their Go Local Profile.)
So what does Katie Leigh have to offer? First of all, they have a pretty good variety of product. Whether you are a gold or silver girl, they have a nice selection of both. Their website is clean and very user friendly. You can shop by the type of accessory you’re looking for: bracelets, necklaces, earrings, etc. While you don’t get the experience of walking into a brick and mortar store and putting your hands on the jewelry, they do a great job describing each piece and presenting a picture that allows you to see how each item actually looks when worn. You’re not left wondering if the necklace you like is going to wear long or right at the neck. They have done a really nice job making me feel like I don’t need to actually try it on, they’ve done it for me.
The buying process at Katie Leigh is easy. You can create an account or just shop and buy as a guest. They accept all credit cards, PayPal, Bitcoin, and Dwolla. (I didn’t even know what all of those methods were until I was checking them out!) When you’re getting ready to check out, you will see one of my absolute favorite things about Katie Leigh: shipping in the US is always free. You can actually buy a piece (or 2, or 3, or 4…) of jewelry and not have to pay 25% more on shipping alone.
I love my Katie Leigh jewelry. I’m definitely going to keep checking in on their new arrivals (and their awesome sales) to keep my style a bit more “style-y”. It’s always good to have an answer to the question “What are you going to wear with it?”
