I was browsing through modcloth recently for all their delightful little owl trinkets when I happened upon this necklace:

Get Wise Necklace


And I thought to myself “HEY! I have a pin exactly like that.”

And I do.

(worn in this post)
Mine is a pin (obviously). It opens (again… obvious), and has “Avon” imprinted on the back of its head (not obvious.)

The reviews on  Modcloth say that the necklace is a bit cheaply made, and things like the eyes fall out or it’s  not very impressive in person. My pin, on the other hand, is nice and heavy, sturdy, and nothing has fallen off yet.

Same designer, different maker? Copycat? Chance? (I highly doubt that one.)

Whatever the case, I found it interesting.

Yep. My days are that exciting.

    I’ve heard that accessories from aren’t very good :/ I mean, they’re adorable and the clothes are so cute! but if you have an identical pin that’s quality, you’re SUPER lucky. Plus, you could easily make it into a necklace!!

      Yeah, most of the reviews for Modcloth’s accessories haven’t been good. I’ll probably never actually buy anything, but it’s fun to look!
      I could. I rather like it as a pin, though. 🙂

    What an adorable owl pin! I love modcloth, but many of the accessories aren’t of particularly high quality, whereas your little owl looks like he was made to last forever- and those green eyes are too cute. I also love the fact that he opens up- I’m not sure I understand why, but I love little details like that 🙂

    Nah, copycat! Yours is so much better! Owls are so YOU, really! Bords of wisdom 🙂 I think that it opens in case you want to put a watch in it? lol! Not that it would be really practical. It would be so weird to check your boobs for the time hahahahhah 😀

      Oh, gosh! I was drinking coffee when I read this and I almost spit it out laughing! “It would be so weird to check your boobs for the time” LOL! Oh, Demy. You’re the best! 😀
