My neice came over the other day thrilled to death to have been asked to their high school prom. Remember those giddy days? Just like they say in the movie What Women Want, it's all about the dress. I'm a bit old fashioned about prom dresses so I asked what her friends were wearing. The answer...animal prints and wild ethnic gowns. Hmm...not like our proms..but then again...I'm old fashioned. But maybe not that old fashioned. I listed a coral glass ethnic bracelet and necklace just because I was drawn to the style...a bit more funky than what I usually offer.
I listed this vintage ethnic fringe necklace last week and it lasted two days. Maybe my niece isn't so far off the mark or could it be that the current rage for tribal-art jewelry we see on the runway this season is seeping into my sub-conscience? No matter...so long as it's vintage, it's good for me!
