Cartier Love Charity Satin Cord Bracelet, Reminder & One for the Girls

Ever since Love Charity Bracelet in satin cord was introduced, I wanted one. However, Savvy Sis didn't think these were worth the investment even if each only retailed for about $250 each way back then. Of course, time progressed and retail price had gone up to $475 each as of last April. I am sure price is even higher now. Yet, as I walked by the window last week, I couldn't help but like these colorful cute bracelets. I have tried a pink one at the boutique, to be honest, it is awfully cute but not very substantial at all. To be practical, I am almost better off buying a silver/enamel Hermes bracelet. If I remembered correctly, with each Love Charity sale, $100 will be donated to a corresponding charity. What do you think of these colorful little bracelets?

Speaking of jewelry, Savvy Mode pearl necklace giveaway will end on July 1, 2009 and winner will post on July 2nd. Click here to enter!
This is my copy, the winner will have one for herself.

Last but not least, a friend e-mailed this to me and I thought it was hilarious. I hope you have a chuckle or two reading this over Saturday morning coffee. I sure did, here goes.....

Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray the Lord my shape to keep.
Please no wrinkles, Please no bags
And please lift my butt before it sags.
Please no age spots, Please no gray
And as for my belly, Please take it away Please keep me healthy,
Please keep me young, And thank you Dear Lord, For all that you've done.

Five tips for a woman....
1. It is important that a man helps you around the house and has a job.
2. It is important that a man makes you laugh.
3. It is important to find a man you can count on and doesn't lie to you.
4. It is important that a man loves you and spoils you.
5. It is important that these four men don't know each other.

  1. Love your necklace!
    Funny footnote too!


  2. Beautiful dress..the dove gray color is stunning.


  3. Good ones :D I've seen some of them in emails!
    I'm entered and now just crossing my fingers.

  4. The jewellery certainly look pretty but for that pricetag I would want something a little more substanial I think! You look lovely in that pic, the grey with the necklace is really pretty!

  5. SG, your sister is right, the bracelet is cute but not really worth the price tag even if it's a Cartier.

  6. you look lovely. and i dont think those price is worth it. it's better to save up and buy something more substantial. it annoys me when prices for stuff just goes up for the sake of going up.
    and im totally emailing that cute stuff to some friends!

  7. i've been to the cartier store just to look at those bracelets and was shocked by the price for what you get. It's tiny! But I understand it's cartier and it's for charity.

    LOL at the jokes!

  8. It's cute but pricey. However, that is offset by the charitable contribution. Tough call. Still a wee bit too expensive I think.

  9. Holy cow, are they the Chanels of the jewelry world? Oh well, at least part of it goes to charity.

  10. I love those bracelets but their price is hilarious! Your necklace, as I said earlier, is really fantastic!:)

    And that story,yes...that was fun!:D Especially I loved about 5 men:) Thank you for sharing:)
