Shades of Blue


This dress is one of my favorites for many reasons.  First, the fabric is divine and feels incredibly soft with a mix of silk and a few other fibers.  Second, it can actually be styled several different ways to fit from summer into fall.  I'll show you a second look tomorrow.  The dress price is a little on the high side however I can see it working in my wardrobe for many years to come.  The earrings you see here were remnants of a vintage jade necklace, that had been taken apart and sold in pieces at 25 cents each, through a local antique store.  I picked out 8 leaves and experimented with making the earrings.  I fell in love with them and immediately went back to the antique store to see if the rest of the leaves were still available.  They were and I bought them all for a whooping $5.25.  I don't regret for one moment buying either the earring pieces or the dress.  They were both well worth the price.
