Best (Surprising) Find Of The Day: Walmart Jewelry by Adina Reyter
We've been fans of Adina Reyter's simple but chic jewelry for a while now. She's a celebrity favorite, too, gracing the necks of A-listers like Jennifer Aniston and Teri Hatcher, but as the L.A. Times reported, now she's done a less expensive version of her jewelry in a collaboration for Walmart, available now. While her regular line can cost over $1,000, the 16-piece Walmart line goes up to $98. Here, a few of our favorite pieces from the line to go with a party dress, or to wear every day with a cardigan and skinny jeans: These bangles are twisted with a little bit of flair--simple and elegant alone, or cool mixed in with a whole armful of bangles. We like the simplicity of this chain necklace. Bonus that it's light enough it won't weigh you down or distract from the rest of your outfit. Hoop earrings are always a classic: swap these in for your regular studs once in awhile to mix things up. Get more necklaces, cocktail rings, and earrings, or shop for the perfect pair of skinny jeans, or denim for your shape.
