Jordin Sparks knows that building the perfect closet happens one step at a time — and she’s going to hold on to all the special pieces she’s picked up along the way.
Asked about her first big splurge at Page Six Style’s launch party at Barneys New York on Thursday, the pop star said, “The week before I won ‘American Idol,’ I was at the mall and I saw this ring — this small, dainty ring with two hearts intertwining.”
To Sparks, the sparkle was worth the splurge. “It was about $500, but I was like, okay, I deserve this! So I went back and I got it, and I still have it. It’s still in my jewelry box.”
But the singer’s lucky bauble isn’t the only well-loved piece in her wardrobe. While Sparks had a blast trying on a pair of sky-high heels by host Gianvito Rossi, she also confessed to having a soft spot for a certain old pair of sneakers.
“I love my Converse,” Sparks said. “There’s a pair I’ve had since the eighth grade — but they still fit, they haven’t fallen apart and they’re awesome, so those will never, ever leave my closet.”
