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!
