in with the old

I can happily admit the fact that I am an “old soul” in that I appreciate all things vintage and antique when it comes to fashion, furniture, accessories, music, manners, etc. But I have noticed more and more, that I am not the only one … everywhere I look fashions from the 20’s, 30’s and 40’s are resurrecting, record players are coming back in popularity, and vintage broaches and jewelry are all the rave.

I have collected a few vintage broaches from and was given a vintage typewriter from my grandparents. It is so beautiful, and yet very meaningful. As a matter of fact, I used the typewriter as the guest book at my wedding! I found this great store Frock in New York from that has all vintage fashions (and the good labels!) – next time I’m in the big city, I’m going to have to stroll on in … I would also love a stack of vintage Louis Vuitton suitcases stacked in my house – a girl can dream!

Vintage jewelry locally collected and re-created into new pieces by Madeliene O’Connell (a local artist in the Highlands) are definitely statement pieces. You can find these jewels at Fleur de Lis.
