{late summer nights}

Who knew layers & layers of fashion/costume jewelry could be such fun? And even more so with a mix of real & faux pieces for everyday -- paired with a white tank for a sultry summer afternoon, or with black for a cool, sexy summer night . . .

I love those last two! That huge mass of pearls is so great - a simple black dress and red lips, and you're good to go, PLUS the chicest in the room. And how cute are all those brooches on the blazer? Totally stealing that idea.

I've got some wee little rhinestone numbers from my grandmother but I love the louche extravagance of these. The wee ones do fit my puppy perfectly.

How I'd love to have the courage to wear faux (or preferably real) bling like this model, morning, afternoon and night! Maybe in my old age, when eccentricity will be viewed as endearing.

Love the post!

So fun! That contrast between the over-the-top glam jewelry and the simple, casual clothing is delicious.

I'm a big fan of brooches, but never seem to know when/where/how to wear them. They look great amassed on this gray blazer. I think I'll pull out my collection and try it this way. :) The model's pretty loose bun is so soft and pretty, too.
