Oh Vintage !

Vintage sets you apart.
It adds distinction and depth to whatever you are wearing.
Vintage is different.

I appreciate vintage and jumped with joy after opening
this box, a gift from my 80+ year old great aunt. 
She is my vintage fairy and a classy one too.



She lived in New York and sometimes in the 60's she 
bought this earring, necklace and bracelet set.
I am going to ask her what store she got it from, as I am certain 
she remembers, she has a really good memory.



It's from a company that no longer exists that had some 
interesting pieces, it was called Florenza.

I am totally in love with it. The bracelet is my favorite.

What is the most recent vintage item that has come into 
your home or closet ?

It's fabulous, Lorena, and the color and detail are a true example of fine quality and craftsmanship. I'm hoping to increase my vintage collection in every category. Uniqueness is so wonderful. Happy weekend to you.

Oh, so much love for this set! I adore vintage pieces and peruse etsy sometimes for hours poring over gorgeous jewelry. I love that you have a personal connection to yours - that makes it so special!

This is So Beautiful! It is especially great when a vintage piece has meaning and is passed down.

You know I love my vintage - I need to wear more of it.

It's beautiful!! I still wear a winter coat from the 60's. It is high quality, but I got it at an estate sale for only $7! I feel very glamourous when I wear it.

I have tons of things that I have gotten from my mom and great aunts. My favorite lately are bracelets that my aunt got in the 60s in India.
