I found this lovely piece of handmade vintage on the front page of Etsy, and I had to have it. I know there’s a recession; I’m just doing my part for the economy. Anyway, that’s my story. The fabulous AquaVelvet gave me a stunning compliment and told me I knew how to rock the vintage. I fear it’s not really true. Amongst my inner circle, I’m well known as something of a frumpy dresser. I favor jeans, boots and long sweaters, and usually resemble a sort of perky longshoreman in disproportionately fancy earrings. When this package arrived, however, I realized I was going to have to step up my game. It’s time to start really rocking the vintage. I’ll do my best, AquaV, thanks! Check out AquaVelvet‘s Etsy shop for more exceptional vintage items, and you can rock too. (She also makes gorgeous jewelry, available at http://morphologie.us/).
