Vintage Gems By The Shore

A few days ago I was convinced that fall weather has finally arrived in LA, but {of course} we were back to frolicking in our short shorts over the weekend. We spent the day at the beach by our place checking out some random boutiques in hopes to score some gems. I’ve never been huge on vintage clothing, but when it comes to estate jewelry that’s a different story! I generally do all of my vintage jewelry shopping out in LA, and was quite sure I wouldn’t  find anything in this small beach town. To my surprise we found a tiny boutique tucked in the corneres of Manhattan Beach where I found this beautiful necklace + a diamond encrusted gold leaf braelet that i’m wearing above. It’s always exciting to score one of a kind pieces that have a story behind them!

Happy Monday loves!

so pretty. you seriously have a healthy mannequin’s body, you make any clothes look so nice on. although your hair always seem really dry, really knotted and tangled up and kinda dead. but gahh you can seriously wear anything. very few in the world can rock a yellow sweater
