Wild About Retro

OK, not that you asked but I thought I'd tell you anyway, what I wore to the Neiman's event.
Since it was sponsored by the very elegant ladies of the Friends of Virginia Robinson Garden's
I just had to wear a little jewelry.
Usually I wear garden themed jewelry to these kind of events, little flower, butterfly or bee brooches.

But this time I went a little more bold. On the lapel of my Chanel jacket I wore this 1940s Retro bow brooch with gigantic citrine in yellow and rose gold. It isn't on Beladora yet because I love it so much that am contemplating keeping it for myself.
Cool aren't they?
Digg this

You know, I have a thing about jewelry that's a bow in one way or another, and I don't own a single piece. Hmm.

LPC...we are gonna have to fix that!

Love both of those; they are bold and fabulous!

Oooooh, would I love to play in your jewelry drawer.

I don't think I would ever be able to make a decision with all those choices.

I love those pieces! Would have liked a picture of your Chanel jacket!

Mardel said...

Wow! That is one gutsy bow! Usually I find bows a little too sweet; certainly not this one.

Pseu: Thanks!
Tish: Actually it is difficult to make a choice when you have thousands of pieces to choose from. But, I still have my favovites and tend to wear the same pieces over and over.
Fab: My chanel was something like 20 years old. But, it is in perfect condition and I still love to wear it in the winter.
Michel: When it comes to wearing jewelry, in my opinion, go big or go home!
Mardel: it's hard to pull off a bow at my age unless it's a bold statement piece.
