WELCOME TO DELIGHTFULLY VINTAGE JEWELRY AND ACCESSORIES

2 0 1 5 F A S H I O N A N D J E W E L R Y T R E N D S: Step right onto the Groovy Safari Bus with Hippie Shake and Tribal Chic fashions. Big and bold are in whether it be prints or jewelry!

HIPPIE SHAKE -
Spring Summer 2015: Late 1960s-early 1970s boho chic is back in all its trippy, psychedelic glory for spring with its carefree, easy-going, free-spirited attitude. We’re not talking ripped jeans and a tattered t- shirt. This version of hippie chic is a little more glam than that! Haute hippie! But we are taking it back to Woodstock with fringed and crocheted clothes and purses, along with maxi dresses, floor-skimming gypsy skirts, handkerchief-hemmed dresses, loose cotton tunics, floaty trapeze dresses, billowy kaftans, bell bottom and flared at the knee pants, high-waisted pants, puffed Ballet Russes-print sleeves, stone-embellished halter tops, crop tops, vibrant tie-dye patterns, fabrics – like tissue paper-thin silks and wispy chiffons which allow the seductive swishes when in movement, retro scarf motifs, paisleys, geometrics, folksy florals, and don’t forget the gladiator sandals, clogs, platforms or wedgies, chunky-heel boots, low slung chunky woven belts or beaded crocheted belts, floppy hats, long rows or colorful beads or layers of chains.

Fall 2015: Much of the same style, but add mix-and-match wool and velvet patchwork skirts and dresses, bold leather jackets, plush suede accents, capes, ponchos and hobo bags all with lots of tassels, embroidered and fringed vests, sheepskin coats, army jackets, military accents in navy or khaki.

TRIBAL CHIC -
Think safari....Sub-Saharan vivacity....One planet, One Tribe: The bold, graphic prints and simple shapes are a gutsier take on the other ethnic trends of last season. More bold than whimsical boho; less contrived than the jingly coins and bejewelled scarves of the global nomad.

Spring/Summer/Fall 2015 - Tribal is back and hot featuring Afro-pop looks with lots of linen, batik, geometric tribal prints, brightly colored African fabrics, mix and match animal and colorist prints, trendy afro-clutch purses and bags with flowing tassles, luxe leather purses, , wide, low slung leather belts, revisited 1970's safari jackets, a khaki nod to military style alongside nautical accents, acid wash streaked jeans, eco-fashionable brass, aluminum, bone and leather jewelry. The bigger the better!

You can find many of these trendy jewelry pieces here in my shop right from the comfort of your home. No driving from store to store, no fighting traffic, no searching for a parking space, no standing in line to pay, and it's even delivered right to your door! What's an easier way to shop? I am delighted to do the searching for you. Relax and take a few minutes to browse my shop of unique vintage costume and antique jewelry from the late 1800s to 1992, as well as vintage sterling silver jewelry, and vintage accessories.

I add additional items daily so keep checking back.
