i vow to wear more embellishments.

i'm a simple girl when it comes to jewelry.
i tend to think i can't pull it off effortlessly.
so i'm vowing to wear more of it.

these are my current favorite pieces:


The flower pendant i got at a garage sale. A neighbor across the street had one where a cute little old lady was selling a lot of her jewelry. She was touching the pieces i bought and told me she remembered when she wore this one or that one, and you could tell she was recalling memories. i told her i looked forward to creating my own stories wearing them, just like she had.

The vintage styled AMOUR necklace i bought from oh hello friend's etsy.

The Black Wire Bird Nest Necklace is probably my fave. It's unique and for that reason, is always complimented. And then i get to tell them that my pretty friend Belen made it. {You should check out her etsy shop, Belen's Boutique}. My pictures don't do it justice- get a better view here. and while you're at it, check out this cute cute cute rabbit necklace i just purchased from her! isn't she talented?

Let's see how i do on this vow.

The piece i am not taking off for awhile, i have not pictured yet. That will be another day... and no, it's not an engagement ring...

i am the same way (of course), i barely wear any jewelry. A pair of studs, and my wedding ring...
but i love to look at it and wish i had the nerve to wear more.

i love the story about the lady at the garage sale... that would get me.

ONic, and it goes with everything! and is the perfect length... it hangs between my cleavage- and since i don't have any... ha

Belen, i would love it if you were my doll to dress up :) i sometimes feel like you're my little sis (we're both filipina!) and i would let you borrow anything in my closet. I loveee rummaging around! love it. we'd go gargae saling every saturday if i was there.

thanks Sara!!! :)

M, i knew you would appreciate that story. You, my gypsy girl, should be all about the jewelry ;)

Okay, those are all gorgeous and I want all of them. I also am trying to wear more jewelry. I tend to not "dress up" - and THATS MY PROBLEM. i think that i must be dressed up to wear jewelry. we should make a pact or something.
