Brown sunglasses, D&G by Dolce & Gabbana; Men's digital black watch, plastic, my brother's; Beige and gray pumps, patent leather, Nine West; Red tee, cashmere, Lord & Taylor; Gilded bow necklace, it was a gift from my boss, it belonged to her great aunt.
There is something really special about antiques. There is something really special about gifts. Wearing something like an heirloom elevates and inspires an entire ensemble, making an everyday, mundane, perhaps chic outfit into something personal and substantial. It creates an aura of style and ownership. This is what this little vintage bow necklace represents. It was a gift from my old boss and one of the sweetest women there are. Although I no longer work at the library, this is a very special piece that symbolizes a lot of things and reminds me of her. Here is to heirlooms. Let us raise our glasses of fresh orange juice and say "Cheers!".
