The past few days have been a whirlwind! In a good way of course. On Friday I did a little antique shopping and treated myself to a pair of rhinestone and sapphire blue stud earrings ($10!). I wore them with a 1930s marigold gown I wore that evening. Marigold and sapphire look really good together, I must say. I did eye another pair of lovely dangly earrings in which the sweet lady behind the counter said "You've got excellent taste" with a little chuckle and proceeded to show me the most lovely pair of Miriam Haskell vintage earrings...at a mere price of $428. Le sigh. Sadly, my budget was closer to the $20 or less range...

You know, I have to say, I really appreciated this woman's attitude. Sometimes if I am a bit taken aback by how expensive something is a seller gets a little insulted. But if I'm taken aback it's not because I think you're overcharging, it's mostly because I'm trying to calculate inside my head how much work I need to do to afford said earrings and realizing I simply just cannot afford it at this time. Her reaction was a simple smile and a "Well, you'll look lovely in the sapphire earrings especially with it against your dark hair." I wanted to hug her. She was so sweet and genuine. I'll definitely be going back to the shop! I so wish I could remember the name, I had just wandered in randomly. I'll find it again and will share with you name and location of said antique shop!
Headed off to the Rose Bowl today, so hopefully I find some treasures! I had a small shoot yesterday so it was nice to get a bit of cash to bring to the flea market and not to mention it gives me a strict budget since I refuse to withdraw money and just have cash sitting idly in my wallet (I WILL spend it and won't realize how and when and where...) For now...au revoir!
