As a kid I LOVED dolls. I had a ton of barbies and a ridiculous amount of clothing for them. But it wasn't just barbies, I love any type of doll. I even had an extensive porcelain doll collection that my grandmother created (don't hate, it was the 80s and it was a thing). I also had a few vintage dolls from when my mom was a kid.
Words cannot describe how much I love this "little kiddle" brooch.
So it was no surprise when few months ago I saw the most adorable doll necklace on the Kate Spade website and was drawn to it. Read about it here:
And white it's beautiful I have to say oh no to the over $400 price tag. So, I headed to etsy to see if I could find a similar but more affordable product. And although there were many similar necklaces I found myself drawn to the style of a particular shop out of Spain. For months I kept the shop as my favorites, my problem was I just couldn't decide - they are all so cute! Finally I decided I had wanted one long enough and decided just to pick one and make a purchase. And last weekend it was finally here!
I love when sellers wrap things, it's a little self gift after all.
Here's the doll I selected:
Wearing the necklace to give an idea of size.
It's hard to show in a pic but this is very well made and the detailing is quite nice. While I love my necklace I have doubts already that I played it safe and maybe I should have gotten a "louder" doll.
Sadly, the little kiddles, Dawn and Angie got lost over the years and I couldn't find them at my Mom's house. Eventually I'd like to buy replacements off eBay to show my future kids but right now I just can't justify the purchase, plus I don't trust myself not to loose them again.
Do you see now how I had so much trouble? In addition to necklaces there are brooches too and I have a feeling eventually I will get one of those too.
Here's the shop to check out all the beautiful designs.
