For the Love of Cocktail, Vintage, Vow

At the age eight, I was already rummaging through my mom’s jewelry box, looking at the glittering charms and stones that she barely used. Her bracelets I would fancily wear on my ankle (because they were too big for my wrists) and her chandelier earrings I’d just haphazardly hang right above my ears.

I never knew then that decades later, such habit of being nosy would pay off because now, I’m a proud of owner of genuine vintage jewelry pieces. Genuine because we see a lot of vintage-inspired accessories these days—and nothing wrong with that. I myself is a sucker for anything vintage-ish, and yes, even before media labeled it trendy.

Above are some of the pieces my mom knowingly or unknowingly hath bestowed upon me. The floral green-against-gold pair of  stud earrings is a favorite. It’s so old she can’t even rememberowning it once (I did have the decency to ask her this time).

The rings, most, if not all, are actually gifts from friends and family. Fancy.

Oh! Recently, however, I received what turned out to be a bling I wouldn’t want to leave home without… Obvs hint: Conceptualizing an intimate DIY wedding, day in and day out, lately. ♥
