This just in from The Recessionista Radar system: NY jewelry designer Anna Sheffield is collaborating with Target on a jewelry collection that is about to hit stores in the US on August 30. The line features delicate , sterling silver pieces. Here’s a little sneak preview. The images look nice, but I’ll have to wait to see the real deal in the stores.

The Target collection will rang in price from $19.99 to $79.99. Anna Sheffield is best known for her upscale Bing Bang line. I’ve always liked her line, but didn’t have $500.00 to spare for a new necklace. Sorry, Anna, but that’s Chanel jewelry money there for my Coco savings slush fund. Just a matter of personal taste on that one, but when I spend hundreds of dollars I want the classic look. Now I can cozy up to Anna’s jewelry without spending hundreds via Tar-jay. I did blog on Anna’s Big Bang line previously, when it was on sale at Ideeli for far less that retail.
In other news, props to Barneys for offering to recycle Denim. This is so eco-friendly. During the month of August, if you bring in a pair of your old jeans, Barneys will recycle them. In exchange for the trade-in, you will receive 20% off a new pair of jeans.
I like this angle. When you think of all the old jeans sitting around that are out of style, or don’t fit anymore, this is a good way to put them to use. This offer is valid in the month of August at Barney’s C00Ps and flagship locations.
And if you want to keep your jeans, check out Ideeli’s Woodstock Contest. You might be able to put those old jeans to use to dress up like a cool hippie at Woodstock. Check the Ideeli blog for details.
