I’m a new Brand Ambassador for Karina Dresses, http://karinadresses.com/. My Karina Dresses are my absolute faves for simple but chic dressing. I can throw one over my head and consider myself ready for anything.
Today I’m pairing my 1940s inspired Megan dress from Karina Dresses with a beautiful necklace courtesy of my talented and stylish friend Suzanne Carillo, an artist who creates stunning jewelry and witty printable art, available through her Etsy shop, Simply Creative. I love how Suzanne’s necklace adds a three dimensional sparkle to the rich floral print of the dress. Suzanne also shares her incredible fashion sense at her blog, Style Files.
This necklace, Twilight Sparkle, is a gorgeous eclectic mix of a vintage silver metal rose brooch, handmade satin and fabric flowers with blue faceted beads.
I’ll be wearing this piece a lot with my button front shirts.
Suzanne picked up the vintage brooch from a vintage clothing show about three months ago. It reminded her of the kind her grandmother used to wear on Sundays for church.
A better view of the blue sparkle.
This dress was made to swirl and twirl with the helicopters. Or go dancing in 🙂
