How To Wear Vintage Jewelry in Modern Day
I believe that jewelry plays a big part in a woman's unique style and feel that each piece has a history, especially when given as gifts. To that end, I own a lot of jewelry and give a lot as gifts. A few years back, I found a piece of jewelry by John Wind that remains one of my favorites today; a Sorority Gal Cotton Pearl Initial Bracelet in Gold. The piece was inspired by Grace Kelly in Rear Window. Love it!!
Through this post, I would like to introduce you to John Wind and his most recent collection inspired from the past. Each piece takes on a personal meaning and a little soul of its own. I love the fact that the line is unique, collectible and high quality. In fact, they could and should be handed down for generations! My initial charm bracelet is still as beautiful as the first day I wore it!
John started as an artisan making chunky collage brooches and watch bracelets made of linked watch heads! And due to demand for the line expanded into the gift world to deliver a unique jewelry line!
Wind's designs have been featured in many books and magazines; including Harpers Bazaar, InStyle, Oprah and the New York Times. You can purchase the full line on their website or it is sold in a number of boutiques around the world!
I have styled two very different outfits, one from the closet and the other new. I feel this jewelry complimented, enhanced and completed these looks. In the first, I am wearing a Magaschoni gold coat purchased a few years back and #ftc (from the closet) with Free People frayed jeans and gold sandals, by BCBGMAXAZRIA again #ftc. And of course, my John Wind jewelry, featured in the gallery below.) The second look is a fun, casual dress by Sundays from a local boutique in Charlotte called Luxe Angel. Love the rose gold zipper and pockets ( can you tell I am a fan.) The dress is actually of gift for someone close to me so....sssshhhhh!! Such a great place to shop!! The black sandals are Vince Camuto, from Nordstrom Rack.
If you add any of this fine jewelry to your own personal collection, I look forward to hearing from you via comments below!! Check out my personalized "J"! Everyone needs a fun, personalized item. I am in love with this awesome pin!!
Until next time and as always thank you for reading!
