I love chunky vintage jewellery and when I'm out at flea markets looking for furniture and accessories, I can't resist checking out the bling too. I recently bought this piece at the annual Christie Antique show which I also blogged about here and here.
I've worn it with a crisp white shirt for a client meeting, a low-cut black dress for evening cocktails, and with a slate-grey t-shirt and jeans for dinner out with friends - and every time I wear it, someone inevitably asks "Where did you get that fabulous necklace?". I always tell them to get out of the city and go hunting for unique pieces in the quaint shops found only in rural small town settings... and that it only cost me $25!
I also love this mother of pearl compact that I found years ago. It has a lipstick holder and the inside has two compartments for face powder and perhaps a piece of paper to write a phone number? As well as a good size mirror - no space for a blackberry though, which is why I mainly just display it in a tray on my dresser.
Do you have a great find you'd like to share?
