What I Wore on Sunday, July 24, 2016

by mary August 4, 2016

On Sunday, July 24, a friend & I attended "Rock of Ages" at the Des Moines Community Playhouse.  "Rock of Ages" is a rock/jukebox musical built around classic rock songs of the 1980s, especially from the famous glam metal bands of the 80s.  Although the dress I'm wearing isn't from the 1980s (more like from the early 2000's), at least it matches the colors in this fabulous 1980's purse that I got a couple of years ago at Dorothea's Closet Vintage.  I love the colors in this purse!

With my fabulous 1980's purse, I wore 3 pieces of jewelry I've made in the last year that picked up the colors in my dress & purse.

I made this necklace using vintage bakelite game discs that I got at an antique mall here is Des Moines, & vintage chain & beads.

I made the charm bracelet using other vintage bakelite game discs from the same find, & some beads that complemented the colors of the discs.  These discs remind me a lot of old tiddly-wink shooters!

And I wore thsi fun pair of earrings I made out of old lithograph tin speedboats that I found at an antique mall outside Manitowoc, Wisconsin.

I love the graphics on these little boats!
