Like A Magpie: J. Crew Fall Jewelry

magpie

This definition of a magpie in the Oxford English Dictionary made me laugh:

Used in similes or comparisons to refer to a person who collects things, especially things of little use or value, or a person who chatters idly.

Yep, sounds familiar.

On that note, J. Crew’s first fall catalog arrived in my mailbox yesterday and it contains some delightful sparkly gems that are a magnet for my magpie mind.

This crystal foliage necklace is #1 on my Just Want Now list:

Look how great it is styled with a chambray shirt:

Same stones, cocktail ring version:

JC3

Two cuff bracelets (two images of the second one to show its wrap style):

JC4 JC8 JC9

I can’t decide which bracelet I like better. Both have their charms.

Or, if you want to go in an entirely different direction, these simple and modern pieces also caught my fancy:

JC6 JC7
