There is something so beautifully satisfying when you can smile big and say “thank you, and no, no…This is vintage and from….” The pieces above are my absolute favorites found in my vintage stash. Some pieces passed down from family, others fantastic finds from some serious treasure hunting. There is no shame in graciously digging through the vintage piles of tangled goodies at thrift stores, street fairs and garage sales (and yes, I do that!) Statement jewelry is not going anywhere anytime soon. Plastered on the pages of every fashion magazine layered or alone, sparkling necklaces, bracelets, pins and rings those knock of vintage pieces are out there in abundance. I say go for the real thing, find that one of a kind vintage bauble that makes you stand out from the rest. You can always mix and match your vintage with the newer finds. Above: my favorite vintage necklace layered with a faux piece. Have a fabulous Friday!
