Our Kind of Jewelry

We've never really agreed with the saying "diamonds are a girl's best friend." That could be because we can't afford them and have therefore never given them a proper chance to be our bosom buddies, but we honestly don't feel the need. Don't get us wrong. We love shiny, sparkly things, but that encompasses everything thing from glitter to a thoroughly scrubbed hubcap.
We understand that we aren't quite cutting edge enough to pull off the latter as adornments, so we happily drape ourselves in June Shin's gorgeous daubs! Dainty, but not prissy; elegant, but not stuffy; unique, but not overly trendy or trying too hard.
We lucky ladies of Decatur can hop over to Dresscodes any time to see what June has cooking (these photos are from their current selection of June's wares). Other ATL locations include Sole, Veruca, Tracy Ewell Cosmetics. Out-of-towners, don't fret! She is available on line too, at Etsy! Oh, bless! Check out her lovely blog too, while you're at it.

I'm not usually a big fan of gold jewelry but these are really beautiful.

BTW, I added your link to my blogroll. Hope you'll do the same.

Very reminiscent of the 60s and 70s when my mom used to have these kind of accessories. I own them now!

Stephanie said...

Pretty! I don't usually wear gold though.

Holly Golightly would agree, I believe she did not care for diamonds on women under forty.

Ashley said...

that necklace is amazing.

danz, I'm not a big fan of it either, it usually makes me think of the 80s for some strange reason.
You have been linked and check out the most recent post ;)

Lynn, I totally agree! I have a few pieces from my mama too!

Stephanie, me neither! But this is delicate enough where I totally would!

Mary, genius! I do believe she said they just look tacky. I'll have Breakfast at Tiffany's tomorrow.

Isn't, A? Hope you've been to dresscodes... if you haven't, we are going next time you are down here ;)

Thanks for the post! And thanks to everyone else too. I feel like Sally Field, "You like me! You really, really like me!" (or my jewelry at least.)
