Aqua Blue Heaven Friday: Razzle Dazzle.

Welcome to this week's Aqua Blue Heaven Friday!

Can I just say how much I'm so over the snow? Good. I'll say it, then: I'm so over the snow. It seemed like a perfectly charming and idyllic idea, say, in December. But by now, it's starting to become a bummer, like spring will never get here and it'll be eternally a snowy tomb around here. (That's pretty damn cheerful, no?!) My homeslices in Cali probably can't quite understand, seeing as though you're always mudsliding or on fire, which is the extreme opposite of snow and all. Point is, we're all sick of our weather and wake me up when it's spring, with a frozen daiquiri in one hand and a plate of nachos in the other and no one gets hurt.

So for today's theme, we're gonna rock some pretty, twinkly, girlie, sparkly, shiny, glisten-y, bedazzle-y vintage jewelry, because it's a helluva lot better than twinkly, sparkly snow! Or twinkly, sparkly mud & fire.

Vintage 50's Lisner Rhinestone Necklace & Earring Set, currently available from Etsy seller The Spectrum Vintage.

Vintage 50's Enamel Daisy & Rhinestone Necklace & Bracelet Set, from Etsy seller Flea Market Magpie.

Vintage 50's Plastic Rhinestone Daisy Earrings, from Etsy seller The Vintage Wren.

Vintage 50's Aqua Rhinestone Necklace, from Etsy seller Moontree Boutique. It's so over the top and wonderful, in that "rich bitch who falls for the hot, poor guy in some random 1950s romantic comedy and there's probably some wacky hijinks in there too" way. Or possibly a movie starring Elizabeth Taylor. And if there's one thing Elizabeth Taylor taught is, is that over the top jewelry is never wrong.


  1. That blue/white theme is so fresh, so summery, so, erm, something else nice and bright.

    Lovely selection that almost makes me want to renounce my tomboy ways and go girly in a sticky-out frock.

  2. Ooohh, pretty! Awesome Aqua Blue Heaven Friday-ness ;)

  3. I love that last one, I would definately wear it, I agree there is no over the top with jewellery ha ha!
