Trendy On A Budget

Looking good shouldn't cost that much!

Gold West Vintage Shoot

lilly pulitzer_goldwestvintage (2) - crop


I couldn’t turn down the opportunity to drape myself in vintage jewels while being photographed by one of my fellow #BostonBlogger, Elissa of Style Wire. The jewels were provided by Lynn Armstrong of Gold West Vintage, who travels all over the country searching for one of a kind and designer vintage pieces. She has amassed a beautiful collection and I just wanted ALL of them!

In keeping with the vintage theme, I rifled through my closet and pulled some of my favorite dresses for the shoot. The hardest part was styling the outfits due to the sheer amount of jewels: trays upon trays and containers upon containers!

Look One:


(1): Vintage Tulip Gold Amethyst Drop Earrings; (2) Cameo Slider Necklace w/Crown of Diamonds; (3) Bracelet; (4) Amethyst Solitaire Surrounded by Baby Seed Pearls Ring; and (5) Gold Ring  w/ Pearl and Gemstone Detail Ring. What I Wore: DVF lace dress from Rue La La; Steven by Steve Madden Pumps 

Look Two:
