How You Sparkle, How You Shine


I'm in love with the glamour of the past. I adore the simple, elegant, and classic vintage style. Plus I love the way ladies of another era incorporated these aspects into their everyday life as well as their special occasions. A pair of crystal earring drip and shimmer as a large brooch highlights the neckline of Ann Blyth. Remarkably simplistic and yet so refined.

Why not spruce up jeans and a t-shirt with pear drop crystal earrings? This vintage pair by Coro of New York City is available at Timelesss Design for $19. How about bringing glamour to the office with you? Nothing big. Nothing over-the-top. Just a simple pearl drop hanging from a metallic swirl will add a touch of vintage elegance to your everyday. These rare vintage earrings are available from Trinket Queen for only $12.50.

Didn't get in on these one of a kind options above? Personal Accents carries these dazzling vintagesque earrings. Their crystals enliven the delicate petals of the silver tone floral earrings. Dainty details make them appropriate in the office or out on the town. Available online for only $24.99.

Make every day a special occasion! Add a touch of glamour with simple, elegant and classic earrings.

XoXo,

Vicki

Every time I see women from this era I think "CLASS" While I am a guy and dont wear earrings, I think promoting them as a fashion accessory is great!

I love your suggestion to try crystal drops with jeans. A lot of people restrain themselves thinking crystal is just for dress up occasions. Your pieces are great too!

Great ideas! I love your finds. I don't generally wear jewelry and my vintage finds are generally targeted only to pill boxes. But I may have to try something new!

oooh i LOVE vintage sparkly things! right now i'm wearing a super sparkly brooch and a super super sparkly bracelet. both vintage and fabulous. i agree that sometimes it's more fun to pair them with items like jeans or especially retro uniform wear from the army/navy shop.
