What I Wore on Thursday, July 28, 2016

by mary July 29, 2016

On Thursday, July 28, I wore this very fun 1950's red, white & blue dress that I got at Dorothea's Closet Vintage several years ago, & a fun 1940's tile purse I found on Ooh La La Vintage last year.

I love the buttons on this dress, especially the ones on the arms just down from the shoulder that stick out when you have the dress on!

With my fun outfit, I wore 2 pieces of jewelry I've made.

I made this necklace out of half-circles I cut out of vintage lithograph tin from an old doll house, plus wooden half-circles & beads from a broken vintage bracelet I found at an antique shop in Manitowoc, Wisconsin.

I really love the patterns on the old lithograph tin.  I think these pieces came from the doll house's kitchen.

I also wore a pair of earrings I made recently out of vintage bakelite game pieces I found at an antique shop here in Des Moines, & little silvertone metal "4-leaf clover" pieces from a broken vintage necklace.

I like the way the discs in the earrings echo the buttons on the dress.
