Here is a nice quote from the actress Salma Hayek in the New York Times about jewelry:
“To me, jewelry can be, if you are very lucky in life, a little map of your story,” she said. “It doesn’t have to be expensive. It marks special moments in time. The people that give it to you, and why and when, tells you a little bit of that time. When you’re gone … this stays behind for the next generations.”
She fondly recalled some pieces inherited from her grandmother (“some with diamonds” and “some plastic”) … “There is a piece of her and who she was.”
Here are a few photos of Salma wearing vintage:
How about this amazing Grecian style vintage gown?
I am a vintage clothing shop owner living and working in rural north Florida. I believe in adding a little vinegar and molasses to my greens, having my coffee outside whenever possible, and mixing something vintage into every room and every outfit.
