A Night on the Town: Navy Lace

Last night, I had the opportunity to get all dolled up and schmooze with some of the community’s finest at the Toledo Auto Show preview gala.  I wore a navy lace GB Gianni Bini dress from a sales rack at Dillard’s.  The mini dress with 3/4 sleeves was the perfect mix of demure and enticing, with a high boat neckline and low open back.  I paired it with light pink patent heels and crystal chandelier earrings.  My esstentials were kept in a pearl snakeskin clutch with an embellished knuckle handle à la Alexander McQueen, which I got for a steal at T.J. Maxx.

NOTE: This is my first post about my style (a little nerve racking) and I hope you check back for more!

My Etsy Hearts: Feather earrings from Baronyka

Feather earrings by Baronyka

My new earrings

Victorian lace earrings, Moonlight Lady lace necklace and Marilyn Monroe necklace

I just received my latest Etsy purchase – feather earrings from the shop of Baronyka – and I love them!  They are black acrylic, very light but substantial and less than $20.  The owner of Baronyka is Rony of Israel and according to her profile she’s inspired by “art deco, tattoos, Victorian era, and Art Nouveau and Combining vintage chic with modern techniques and materials.”

What I adore about these earrings is that you can easily dress them down (in skinny jeans, T-shirt and flats) or up (with a fitted mini, a slinky tank and bold heels).  There have been so many times when I think to myself, “I need a pair of black earrings that are more fun than hoops but not too dressy.”  These are perfect.

I also adore the Victorian lace earrings, Moonlight Lady lace necklace and Marilyn Monroe necklace.
