lovefeast $180 giveaway

I recently acquired this darling long stranded leather and pearl necklace from luxury boutique, Lovefeast Shop.

lovefeast by simplyseleta

Pearls and leather are one of my  very favorite combinations – a great way to make a classic statement without looking too formal.

Been wearing my new pearls in all kinds of lengths – the clasp is actually a leather loop so you can wrap them twice or wear them long.  Wore them wrapped twice with my black knit cape earlier this week… 


And today I popped them on with jeans, an oxford, and my trusty vest.


Lovefeast Shop is such a stylish boutique – it didn’t take me long to figure out that everything in their shop is super luxe and/or handcrafted.  All items appeal to the senses – it’s either soft or made from a luxury material.  Such as their sable table runner – gorgeous for a wedding or special occasion.  This is as beautiful as a wedding gown.


They even have these fabulous velvet pumpkins – in so many fab colors.  This is one of their signature items.


A killer ikat x-stool with lucite legs.  Don’t mind if I do.


And this boatyard pouf that would be delightful in any setting.  Two of these would be adorable tucked under a table behind a sofa.


How about this super chic Provencial large board, made from French oak wine casts and fitted with hand-forged rugged wrought iron.




Lovefeast Shop has generously offered to give away their handcrafted  leather and pearl necklace to one lucky reader, a $180 value.  This would make a beautiful addition to your jewelry collection or gift for your mom, friend….or wife.  Ahem, attention to my guy readers ; )

    I have always loved pearls. My first gift from my then boyfriend and now husband (of 18 years) was a small strand of pearls. I swoon, but I am looking for an upgrade to my small strand. I pair my pearls with a colored button down shirt and jeans. It instantly dresses up any outfit.

    These pearls are beautiful, love that they are with leather! I have one 26″ strand of real pearls I received for a very special birthday milestone and wear them traditional but love to wear them unexpected with jeans and white t.

    I love the leather detail of these pearls – it gives an otherwise very formal and demure necklace a bit of an edge. I would wear it with a cute top, skinny jeans and some leather booties!

    Ah! Oh my goodness, I LOVE pearls. I wear them every single day. I have four pearl necklaces – a white freshwater choker, a graduated white freshwater necklace (from my anniversary – yay!), a multi-strand necklace choker of mini pink freshwater pearls, and a long strand of costume pearls from Banana Republic, which I usually wear double stranded. It’s hard to say how I wear pearls – I wear one of the four necklaces every single day regardless of the outfit. They go with everything from T-Shirts to silk button downs to formal and informal dresses. What I love about the pearl and leather necklace is that it can give a casual outfit a bit of flair and a formal outfit a little cheek. Because of the loop, it can also be worn long or short, which is a huge plus when it comes to the various neck lines in most wardrobes. I could go on and on about pearls. Actually, maybe I should set my sites on something non-pearly so I could shake it up a bit. Nah, it’s my favorite type of jewelry and goes with everything.

    Mary Smith November 8, 2013

    Pearls, where do I start? I have never felt like I could pull them off! My poor husband gave me a pearl necklace after the birth of our first child and I made him take it back (which I regret)…. I didn’t feel like I knew when and how to where them. Seeing how you paired them with jeans, etc. made me feel like I just might be able to wear them after all. Thanks!

    I use my pearls like a family tree, as they are all from different women in my family. I have my great-grandmothers (hers were faux but still quite the luxury for her), my great-aunts (she bought them in New Zealand in the 50’s when she won a cruise around the world,) and both of my grandmothers. My parents gave me my own for my 18th birthday. Some are real, some are faux, some are pinker, some are champagne. Mixed and layered together against anything black, they make me feel loved and grown up!

    Elaine November 8, 2013

    I wear pearls lots with jeans and a black dress. But my funniest pearl story dates back to high school 25 years ago. I ran xcountry back then, and one race I forgot to take off my pearls. I ran the whole race with my 18″ pearls.

    Tricky question about the pearls. If I were pressed, I would say that the best way to wear pearls is with red lipstick. There’s something about the contrast that says classy, fun, and flirty with just a hint of mystery. Almost like you know why the oyster made the pearl to begin with. Shh, it’s a secret!

    This post and its pictures makes me smile with memories of “home.” The pearls channel my grandmother, Nanny Becky. I was born and raised in Brewster, MA (on Cape Cod). My Nanny was an interior decorator and her house and wardrobe always pulled the oceans’ hues and its jewels. She would softly remind all of her daughters and granddaughters to always act and look like a lady; never leave the house without our hair fixed or in a simple pony tail, a little mascara and lipstick, and to always wear earrings. Her staple jewelry consisted of understated emerald rings and pearl studs and necklace. Still to this day when I am shot for ideas of what to wear, I think of her. Nanny always said that navy blue, gold or tan were classic combinations to pair to any event or outing. In fact my Aunt even named her dog “Navy” as an homage to her mother’s wardrobe and home decor staples. Her style was impeccable and she always looked so classy but simple. Lover her!

    I never enter contests, but that necklace is fabulous, I have to try! I’d wear it with some perfectly worn jeans and a belt the same color as the leather on the necklace and a crisp white shirt… love it!

    When my daughters left for college, they were given pearl necklaces. I told them they would be surprised at how pearls can transform an outfit. So why don’t I follow my own advice?! I need a transformation more than they do!! Your necklace is beautiful — thanks for the chance to win.

    I don’t usually wear pearls because the ones I have are very dressy, and I’m more of a tees and jeans kind of woman. But, I love this look with them strung on leather with knots between…just perfect! I could SO wear them with my usual wardrobe.

I have traditional strands in various lengths, and an assortment of earrings, bracelets, necklaces and pins in all hues and mixed with gold, rose gold, silver, crystals, and other beads.

    Pearls are a staple of every part of my wardrobe! Layered strands with monochrome in the form of a simple black t and black and white skirt…a single chunky loop with a hot pink cocktail dress to bring Audrey into the noughties…studs to accentuate a messy top knot…a headband to make a sweatshirt and jeans feel instantly more glam…love, love, love!

    Pearl earrings – daily. If I had a pearl necklace, that would probably be daily as well!

    traci November 10, 2013

    I agree with other readers that if pearls are taken too seriously, they could lose their cool. Therefore, I would pair the necklace with cuffed distressed boyfriend jeans, a tee, a navy blazer and fun ballet flats or even white converse tennis shoes. In my opinion, the mix of leather with the pearls is creative and keeps them from becoming too snooty. Well done, Lovefeast!

    Bon November 10, 2013

    Hi Seleta, although my “birth stone” is a pearl, I must confess I don’t wear pearls. I would like to, but I think it’s a matter of me knowing how to style myself with them. Pearls intimidate me! I have seen you wear them on this blog, and this has offered up inspiration…I just need to take the next step :)

    Kathy November 10, 2013

    I will wear pearls with almost anything. Just the other day I wore two strands with a chambray shirt. I wear them with sweaters and button downs and even an occasional t-shirt. Oh, and then there is the classic LBD with pearls that is always perfect. Pearls make anything look better! I am very lucky to have 3 strands of pearls in my collection. One was a wedding gift from my husband–they were his grandmother’s. And the other two are from my own grandmother. They all have special meaning to me, so I love to honor them with wear–plus they look awesome! The pearl and leather necklace is so unique and beautiful! Thanks for a chance to win it!

    Meredith November 10, 2013

    I love the juxtaposition of the leather and pearls! I wear the pearl studs my parents gave me all the time, from my wedding day to a tee shirt/jeans kind of day. Something about them makes me feel more put-together.

  158. 158
    Suzanne November 10, 2013

    Love the leather/pearl combination! The texture of the two materials make it soooo appealing! I tend to wear pearls either dressed up or down, depending on my mood. Haven’t worn them in a while, actually, and I’m not sure why. Maybe it’s time to grab a strand and see what they can do for this v-neck and jeans….

    I LOVE pearls!!! I have all different kinds of pearls from earrings to necklaces and bracelets. some are real and other are faux. Some I have purchased and others have been gifts. The best are the ones handed down from grandmothers and great aunts. My daughters, ages 16 and 11 have earrings and bracelets..never too young to start. Pearls are always there for you and any outfit….classic. I wear them with jeans and a tee to blouses, dresses and sweaters. Thank you for the great giveaway:)

    I have a strand of pearls and you’ve inspired me to wear them whenever I’m in the mood and not keep them hidden away for special occasions. However this beautiful pearl and leather necklace would be a lovely gift for my daughter’s 24th birthday next month. She loves fashion and she’s always doing nice things for others. The necklace just reminds me of her.

    Remembering back to the 80’s and those fun college days… wore your pearls with everything! And I’ve been so happy to enjoy them again. Tshirts to cashmere sweaters…pearls are the perfect answer. And this strand, oh my, I would be choosing them most days as the combination of the leather and pearl is the most fantastic thing I’ve seen in years!

  177. 177
    Missi November 11, 2013

    I don’t have pearls! But I always think they look very dressy, so I’d probably tone that down by wearing them with some jeans and a nice comfy sweater (there is a call for snow tonight! ) Pearls with a cup of hot chocolate seem like a good fit ;)
