The holidays are upon us and we are feeling the holiday joy! The month of December is jam packed with with events: work parties, holiday parties, Christmas parties, New Years parties and more! With that comes a lot of present buying and outfit changes (Instagram can’t see the same outfit in the same month are we right?)
It’s always fun to buy new fashion pieces, but don’t forget about some of your vintage accessories! When you mix modern clothing with vintage jewelry it is another way to express your unique style. It also helps add depth to your closet, and steers you clear of being overly trendy. So go digging through your mom’s 80’s, 70’s, or even 60’s jewelry and wear your newest purchases from BLFT to be the most fashion forward guest at your holiday parties!
