I originally had a totally different idea and I was gushing about it all to Julie just the other weekend, but then I realized that I have a ridiculous amount of jewelry and accessories (a beautiful problem to have) and so we have a glam accessory collection. Maybe I should capitalize that (not just capitalize on that...), a Glam Accessory Collection. An edited collection with loads of sparkly jewelry, chic evening bags and some bold 70`s chains. I think all these things can be worn for fancy times in your life but I`m also a big believer in wearing the fancy with a white tee and jeans.
Also, it`s worth mentioning that the costume jewelry of decades past is often such good quality. Hence, they have survived all these years. It's hard to describe exactly but a lot of the vintage pieces just feel good. Nice and heavy metal pieces, glass stones and solid closures. Built to last, like Fords, you know?
My favourites from this collection include this 1970's Avon perfume ring in its original box (which looks as modern as if it were released today... seriously... and it's sold), this unusual and dramatic 60's rhinestone necklace (edit: whoa! that sold within a few minutes of listing... but it's the one draped over the gold clutch below) and this beaded shell bag (sold too...) because it's just so cute on that long chain. Oh yes, and duh... these shoes that glitter beyond anything I've ever seen.
Of course, there was more to my day that made it busy but I'm the one who decided that what this Etsy collection really needed was pictures of me chewing Hubba Bubba. And in that moment I realize I'm kinda living some version of the dream. And it's hard and complicated and weird and... pretty darn cool.
** Whoa guys, most of the collection went really fast! Thanks for liking this collection so much! I'm tickled pink!
