So, you all might recall I got a teeny bit obsessed after being subjected to a little too much of "Face the Nation". While this resulted in one wonderful purchase (my WSS strand), it also resulted in this hilarious sleep deprived piece of questionable provenance:

Inspiration (aka what I was hoping for):



What arrived (despite the webpage saying it was the EXACT piece worn by Peggy Noonan):





Not so much!

Suddenly the exchange for store credit policy is making more sense....(yeah, was too tired to read the fine print pre-clickety). At least it wasn't expensive!

Anyone else have any questionable late night purchases to share?

my recent late night sleep deprived purchase wasn't pearls.

I do like that necklace though, but an exact match far from. I recently had to return a very expensive eyeshadow quad for the same reason. I hate returning cosmetics but this was never used and not what I ordered.

A photo of that mabe strand shows up on Peggy Noonan's pinterest site. I find no photos of her wearing the Karine Sultan white glass pearls though.

I'm pretty sure it was the pinterest site that originally sent me to the Karine Sultan website (which is where I got the necklace from). Had I been more awake I would have scrutinized the two pictures a bit more carefully though. Although I have to admit that even if it was the same strand, there is NO WAY I would risk scratching my WSS strand by layering it with them.

Of course, this will be an endless source of teasing from DH.

So funny. How can they send you that with a straight face? They're probably laughing as they do.

We don't have a TV, so I haven't done that kind of thing (yet).

Ok, in the interest of eating what I kill, I'm wearing my faux Noonan today. My neck hasn't turned green so far.... :lol:
