Every season infuses elements of season's past. Trends that are current always have a hint or an echo of style from day's gone by. I am all about the seventies and eighties influence in fashion right now. I wasn't a fan of jumpsuits or color blocking for myself the first time around..maybe because I was too young to be concerned with anything other than riding and all things equestian. I do remember though, how fond I was of the high necked, ruffled Gunny Sax blouses and gold jewelry my mom wore. I thought she was so beautiful; she was the poster woman for femininity and grace in her lace blouse with camisole underneath. With these blouses, my mom wore a pendant gold coin that was encircled by a gold rope setting worn with a gold rope chain. Think Italian mobster with a big gold necklace, and you aren't far off.
She wore this all by itself. I wear several of them at one time. I love the chunkiness of these pieces. I think they are best worn with an off the shoulder blouse in a jewel color or black. I have also been wearing them with very long, heavy gold chains and large gold hoop earrings...I'm channel Mr.T.
My mom asked me if I'd like all of her herringbone, v shaped chains as well. I told her to hold on to them until next fall...I'll be wearing them soon enough and thinking of a Nagel lithograph.
