Some of My Favorite Accessories

I thought I'd share with your some of my favorite accessories as of late.  As you can tell, I've been really into sweater guards, brooches, and hairpins lately.  Oh, and that bow pin and bow hair pin - got them at two different places.  Don't they look like part of a set?

I inherited most of these pieces of jewelry, such as the peach colored flower pin (from my mom), the silver locket (also from my mom), the silver purse necklace (from my grandma), and they art deco ring (from my great aunt).  The sweater guards I found at consignment shops...I'm smitten! Everything else I purchased retail before the whole year of second hand shopping thing began.

I love these apple earrings for work...cheesy, but what teacher doesn't have apple accessories?!

This is my brand new (thrifted) wallet that I found this weekend! I've been looking for something like it for ages, and I finally found it.  The leather is peeling a bit in the interior, but that just gives it character, and you can't see it much from the outside, so I'm not worried about it.  Other than that it's perfect!


  1. These are such wonderful pieces! I love how vintage jewelry can add so much to an outfit. That "come fly with me" pin is so cute.

  2. Awwwee! I love the bicycle earrings and the little wallet. <3

  3. I adore vintage jewelry, you have some great pieces-- the airplane pin (?) is especially amazing!

    It's neat that you have inherited pieces too, the locket and purse necklace are wonderful and still very wearable today.
