Q: What are popular stores or places that carry stylish and functional accessories at reasonable prices?

Lisa: Here are my top favorites:

RocksBox! This is a relatively new find of mine, but it's great for stylish ladies on a budget. RocksBox provides a genius new subscription program that allows you to borrow three pieces of gorgeous jewelry each month, which you can then exchange at any time for three new pieces of jewelry.

If you'd prefer to purchase items instead of "borrow" them, try Purple Peridot.

Boss Lady Tip: Many of these retailers sell great looking jewelry, but the metals are not waterproof and even the oils in your skin might dull them over time. I find that a light coating of Krylon Crystal Clear Acrylic Coating Spray does wonders for extending the life of your non-precious metal jewelry.
