I bought these gold confetti earrings to go with that Elsie Krassas dress I got at the thrift store. I think they will match well. They also match my confetti lucite purse, which I have mended. This will be a Viva outfit for sure! I figured out a way to take in the dress without actually taking it in. Criss cross straps make all the difference in the world!
I bid randomly on this lot of jewelry and wound up winning. I like the orange bangles (not bakelite) because I need more of that color. I literally have 1 orange Bakelite bangle, which is simply not enough! The green earrings will hopefully match the Bakelite clamper I got, but I am not sure. They may be too green.
I bought this repro black halter because I have a million things I can wear it with!! Its a really important basic that I did not own. I have to adjust the straps, of course. Nothing ever fits me right! Even though it is repro it is very well made and look like the real deal. I really love it.

Of course I found an even better option the day after I bought it. This vintage black velvet halter top is perfect!! I already have about 10 outfits I can wear it with! Plus, it fits perfectly, for once. The main thing I bought it for is to go with a pair of amazing vintage pink and black shorts I have owned for a few years. I tried them on together and this will be another great Viva outfit. I even have matching black Bakelite bangles and pink lucite spacers!!
I felt a little silly buying 2 black tops, but in actuality they are different enough that I will get a lot of use out of them. That has been my main thing lately. Buying items that I really need and will use a lot. I don't have money to be spending on lots of new elaborate things, so if I can complete a multitude of outfits for under $100 then I feel pretty good.
