My co-worker was complaining that he wanted to get his wife jewelry for Valentine's Day, but that his taste didn't match hers. He likes dark, dramatic jewelry but she likes daintier, more mainstream designs. I suggested a compromise of this gunmetal necklace by Micky Lynn. The dark chain, uncut stone, and raw setting give it an edge. The simple chain and circle pendant make it wearable for everyday occasions. It's $117 on Amazon.
I've been waiting Anthropologie's ruffled bra and panty set to go on sale. What it lacks in the sex appeal of Anya's retro ensemble, it makes up for in cute ribbons and ruffles. The set is available in cream and pink, rose and black, or grey and black, but I prefer the dark of the latter to offset the sweetness of the look. The bra was $58, which is silly for a cotton, wireless sleep bra, but the price has dropped to $29.95. That's at least worth thinking about. $30 for panties, however, is still laughable.
