Charming Charlie

I love this store! Some of my good friends, the Dietrichs, told me about this store. Such a fun store! It's all accessories and they have about every color you could imagine. They just recently opened one in Peoria so I asked Tami to go with me. She's my partner for all kinds of random activities. We had a great time even though we missed our exit and went about a 30 hour out of our way, broke a ring, lost my fabric swatches of the bridesmaid dresses and made them keep the store open a half hour after closing to look for the swatches! haha
I wanted to look for bridesmaid jewelry. I had in my head that I was going to do gold jewelry. When I asked Whit she said silver and I thought she was nuts. I hate to admit that she was right because when we held up the gold jewelry to the bright green fabric, it looked dreadful! :-)
Then we went to town! We scoured the store for every single bangle and funky ring we could find. I wanted the jewelry to be chunky and different rather than dainty jewely. Here's just a sample of what we found. :-)
