What I Wore on Wednesday -- August 6, 2014

by mary August 6, 2014

Today's Dorothea's Closet Vintage outfit is a 1970's black maxi jumpsuit with embroidered rainbow trim around the neckline & full collar -- love this jumpsuit!  Rainbows were a very popular theme for clothing, album covers & posters, etc. in the 1970's.

With it, I've paired one of my Cracker Jack/gumball charm bracelets & a pair of lucite rainbow earrings to complement the rainbow pattern in the jumpsuit. 

The charms in the bracelet were given to me by a dear friend that buys & sells antiques/vintage because she knew I liked Cracker Jack/gumball charms.  I decided to use them all in a bracelet for myself, & think about her every time I wear it.

I got the rainbow pieces for the earrings in a lot of vintage lucite I picked up on eBay.  The brass rings come from a vintage chain.
