Jewelry






These are a few of the pieces I snitched from my mom's jewelry collection. I've been wearing the groovy white necklace - a 1950s Trifari piece - at least once a week. The silver earrings remind me of tea diffusers. It's rare to find a lacy silver set of earrings that are clips.

The link necklace reminds me of the Michael Kors version from last year. This one is at least a couple decades old. The big turquoise necklace is new from T.J.Maxx. The leopard print in the background is a coat my mom picked up at a garage sale for $5, never worn. (Believe me, I'm wearing it now.)

With a few more baubles, I will be well on my way to this look.

  2. Amazing collection. There is almost nothing better than a good piece of vintage jewelry and that Trifari piece is very chic.
