Finishing Touches


Accessories and jewelry—they compliment an outfit, give you an extra boost of pretty confidence, and if they’re shiny, huge, or covered in ribbons, they can MAKE an outfit. Vintage Jewelry is an easy, fun, and fancy way to step-up any ensemble.

If you are a jewelry enthusiast or interested in adding a little dazzle to your routine business casual wear, Vintage Market is the place to go. From subtle metals to show-stopping costume necklaces; Vintage Market vendors hand-craft and collect a multitude of antique and modern bracelets, necklaces, earrings, rings, and brooches.

Don’t know where to start? Ssasy Chic has the perfect guide to vintage-inspired jewelry fashion for 2010. Pearls, ribbons, chandelier earrings, and pastel gems are just a few of this year’s favorites. And don’t forget to dig through your own jewelry box to find Grandma’s rhinestone clip-ons! Antique-inspired fashion is the perfect opportunity to finally wear those cherished family souvenirs!

So have fun and be creative when picking out your next outfit and accessories! Check out Vintage Market on Flickr for a continuously updated collection of fabulous accessories and jewelry that are old, new and unique!

Pictures from the past...

Collecting old photo's in an affordable treasure, pleasure.  
It's as if I'm gazing through a faded window from the past as I look at them.

You can easily find them at most flea markets and antique shops.
Whether you prefer tattered or torn, your vintage photograph reflects simpler days, and is one of a kind.

Some things to do with old photo's...

Scan or copy photo, and print on paper to make a collage.
Copy photo onto heat transfer paper, and then place on pillows, linens, and bags. 
Punch holes in photo to make custom tags
Sew old photo's together to make a picture pocket. 
Tie on packages for an extra vintage touch.

These are but just a few ideas for re-using old photo's.
If you have other ways of recycling the day's gone by images, we'd love to hear your ideas.

Best Wishes,

Kim
