Vintage or New...Doesn't Matter!*

Hello loves...

I know I haven't spoken to you in a while but there has been a lot going on... In between the bad weather, work, errands and nothing I have been slacking on the blogging... Excuse moi!*

When it comes to vintage pieces I used to raid my moms closet and play with my Grandma's jewels until she gave them to me (hihi,aren't I sweet?) but last December I saw something I couldn't have...

My mom carefully unpacked a jewellery box I've never seen before and started telling me about these beautiful earrings she has been saving for a special occasion... As I stared at the box with earrings, I slowly reached out and put them on... OMG! I was in love! I needed these earrings in my life!

As much as my mom loved them, she offered them to me but I declined... Since I live in a different part of the world, I didn't have the heart to take these earrings... What if my mom wanted to wear them and didn't have them? I couldn't bear the thought her not having her precious beauties and so the search had begun...

As I boarded the plane, arrived, searched and failed to find similar earrings, I never gave up! I am telling you...Accessorize is my homie! A couple of days ago I spotted exact look-a-likes there... As I thought to wait a couple of days,  I was browsing the store again but I couldn't find them! I freaked the F* out!

I asked the super nice lady if they still had them...As she grabbed them for me, I felt extreme happiness and bought them immediately!

 Even though they're not vintage, they look exactly the same...All I can say is: Mission Complete!*



 Earrings by Accessorize (The gold wasn't as gold as I wanted so I put a coat of gold nail polish)


Do you love or do you love?
