Oh my! What a fantastic summer it has been. I have kept myself busy with good friends, good food and LOTS of vintage shopping. Even though I don't always post about it, I am ALWAYS on the hunt for amazing vintage. Here are some recent accessory additions to my collection.
A 60's turquoise medallion necklace that I bought at a local flea market as a present for my sister..
but then I kept it. :)
A 70's coral and gold tassel bracelet that I bought off of a coworker
A vintage shell bracelet from a vintage vendor at a Brooklyn street fair.
An enamel 50's horse pin from a local vintage shop - I imagine it was on a young boy's cowboy outfit.
A rhinestone cuff that was a gift from my friend Whitney of Fauxshionable bought on Etsy.com
A gaggle of earrings all purchased in one trip to the thrift store. I can't decide which pair is my favorite.
Luckily my jewelry box is big enough for all of this (plus way too much more). I can't say the same about the room that stores the jewelry box though.
We spent the last leg of our trip in beautiful Newport, RI. We took the detour as a recommendation of a co-worker and had absolutely no expectations. I was stunned when we arrived. From the giant historic mansions to the sandy cliffs and beaches, Newport is top notch.
Vintage sunglasses and jumper
Outside the beautiful home of Cornelius Vanderbilt ( The Breakers) wearing a vintage white dress and sunglasses.
A Louis Vuitton steamer trunk
Next up; Rosecliff. The home where The Great Gatsby was filmed.
I find myself in a summer sloth state and I am not finding blogging joyful as of late. I have been keeping busy with friend visits (more pics to come) , shortened summer work hours and countless movies on Netflix instant play (WORKING GIRL ON REPEAT).
So... this is all I have to offer. A few pics of a recent visit to Red Hook, Brooklyn and a link to some antique eye candy. Enjoy.
Love the abandoned vintage buses outside the Fairway.
For the aquatic New Yorker who prefers unconventional transportation methods.
We are such hipsters!!!
Red Hook is my favorite area in Brooklyn and home to the coolest antique jewlery store, Erie Basin. Be sure to check out the stores tumblr page here.
