My Bday + Jewelry Week Day 4: Boutique Finesse

"Go, go, go, go, go, go/ Go, Shawty/It's your Birthday/We gon' party like it's your birthday/We gon' sip Bacardi like it's your Birthday/ And you know we don't give a f&*@&k, it's not your birthday!"--50 Cent 'In da Club'

Hey Y'all!
So...not only is today the last day of Jewelry Week on the Fashion Bomb...BUT it's also my Birthday!!! Yayayayay!

For such a fabulous day, it's perfectly fitting that I present you with an equally fabulous jewelry find: Boutique Finesse, an online accessories boutique founded by Howard University alum Carla Rutledge.

Pixie Bracelet, $10

"I'm a bargain shopper who loves accessories," says Rutledge, " My passion for accessories became my inspiration to start Boutique Finesse."

Sunrise Earrings, $11

"Each item in my collection is hand picked with love, care and every woman in mind," she continues, "From an accessories junkie to a sophisticated lady, Boutique Finesse has something for all styles."

Hard Candy Bracelet in Blue, $12

A fan of the lines Foxy Originals and Yoochi because of their, "unique and youthful [designs]," this entrepreneur is an expert in scouting out unique pieces and passing her fierce finds onto you.

Regal Necklace, $18

Red Hot Earrings, $13

Bonus: she hosts 'Champagne Parties' where you can try on and purchase items in the comfort of your own home:

Looks fun!
I'm loving how affordable everything is. Taking a look at her website,, I can't find anything over $25! Chic and Inexpensive:)

PS It's still early, but I've already gotten a *great* present from my boyfriend! He knows I'm a total NERD and also a complete FASHION ADDICT, so he got me the perfect gift:

In Vogue: the Illustrated History of the World's Most Famous Fashion Magazine
I'm about to gets ta reading...need to be prepared when I meet Anna Wintour:)
Have a good one!

Happy Birthday, Claire. Love the cheap but chic pieces in today's jewelry posting. I tried your tailor in Brooklyn and was pleased.
