The other day I made a FABULOUS new necklace just for me (and to share with mom) out of an ornate vintage cloisonne belt buckle that we've had stashed for a while. I am so happy with the results- a true statement piece if I ever saw one. It is a flapper-vamp-exotic beauty- it looks like something that Theda Bara would've worn to play Cleopatra.
And anyone who knows me knows that it's no surprize to find me playing dress-up (yeah, even at 30.) I love fashion, clothes, vintage stores, jewelry and other accessories. So today I came up with an outfit to go with the necklace. It kinda makes me feel like a young starlet coming from dance practice:
floral patterned tank: vintage (I was shocked at how perfectly it matched the pendant.)
navy merino cardigan: Banana Republic- thrifted from My Sister's Closet (that's the name of the store. I don't have a sister.)
Grey shorts with bow: Zinc- from Loehmans in L.A.
Grey t-strap shoes with bow laces: Sam Edelman- from Nordstrom's Rack
Tan crochet stockings: Target
What do you think?
One last look at the necklace:
