Hello! I hope your weekend is closing with a sweet, star filled night. I spent the weekend at the beach , and wore my new boho top over a lightweight slip dress by Joie. I anchored it with a handmade pendant, and watched the boats go by!
The necklace is borrowed from Ava's & Around Again, my favorite consignment shop in the Hamptons. It now has a new layout and a lot of brand new, never worn items. My blouse is one of those new items, and was priced well at $68.00! I have been searching for the perfect white Boho top. I wanted a tunic length that I could wear over a slip dress, jeans, or denim, and I wanted high quality lace. I had almost given up when I was inspired by Greetje's white boho blouse, from her blog , No Fear of Fashion. Then I found her exact blouse near me for $420, but that would have been too large for me, and too $$$$. (BTW, Greetje, paid about 1/4 of that!) Motivated to find my blouse, I went to the wharf and found it at Anna's & Around Again! it is made by a company called Solitaire.
Marjorie, at Ava's and Around Again let me barrow this huge Aquamarine ring I am wearing for this shoot. It is expensive at $4800., but it would be triple that at a local jewelry store. I am guessing the weight to be about 20 carats, and it is set in 18K white gold. I do have birthday coming up!:) It is divine, don't you think? And good jewelry is a solid investment, as well as wonderful to wear and pass down.
The necklace is gorgeous, too: one of a kind, and perhaps will be mine. It is $148.OO, and well priced for what it is. It adds so much impact to this outfit! I can imagine wearing it with almost anything...I also found some shoes that I had to photograph; one is a mink trimmed mule, ($120) , the other a leopard mule, trimmed in caribou, at $45! What fun! Here are some shots!
and my happy smile: A special blouse like this was hard to find. There are a few left at Around Again. An online option is this one. It is not tunic length but the price is great and it comes in white and colors. I like that mine is rayon, with cotton lace, and it mid weight. I can wear this year round.
