Vintage white jewels

I think of these pretty oval duos as “wedding jewels”. Of course you can wear them for other occasions, but they are so graceful, simple, and feminine, that I think they are perfect for brides:

The little sparkle of color at the top of the setting can be matched to your wedding colors – or of course can be clear, sparkling, bridal crystal. Hmm. You could use crystal for your earrings – and a color stone for your bridesmaids 🙂

DIY. Save money. Sparkling, pretty, bridal jewels. This is all to the good!

Bridal wedding jewels

A customer asked me to show her some of the crystal jewels I currently have available – she was playing with ideas for her wedding jewelry. I sent her several individual links, and showed her this pic too:

We shared a few ideas back and forth until she determined exactly what she wanted – I can’t wait to see her wedding pics!

When it comes down to it, that’s what really counts. Pretty bridal and wedding jewels that can be combined into your very own creation – perfect for your special day!

Vintage wedding gown and a great shop

I wish I needed a wedding dress (and that this lovely gown was my size). This beautiful wedding gown is vintage, is in great shape, and if you are in the market at ALL, please keep reading!

Because: beautiful ivory white fabric with what looks almost like trapumto detailing (machine done but still). Strapless, with tags STILL ON. And a train. A bit of sitting-in-storage dust so it needs to be cleaned – but, unworn!

It’s beautiful, it’s classic *and* classy. It’s available from Vic’s Vintage Closet on Etsy. And (probably because Vic is moving, and everything in her lovely shop is on sale) it is selling for $45.00 plus shipping. I am not kidding!

If it’s gone by the time you see this post, then you still want to peek. Because she has such lovely items – a Calvin Klein jacket, a Diane von Furstenburg dress, a Liz Claiborne bag – oh, you’ve got to go look.

You are going to thank me!

Vintage Wedding Gowns – Wow!

There’s something wonderful about wearing a vintage wedding gown on your special day. But once I started looking, I realized how expensive they can be, even in vintage!

So I was thrilled to find *two* beautiful wedding dresses at Sweet Nancy Vintage at Etsy:

White Vintage Wedding Gown at Sweet Nancy Vintage on Etsy

Aren’t they gorgeous? One is a size 8, one is a Size 12 – ah ha! Not just Size 4s. And the cost? $95 and $125! Yes, you read that right! Oh my 🙂

Truly, if those gowns are sold when you go to look, believe me you’ll find other treasures there. What are you waiting for? Go shopping!
