On a recent trip to the fab Swag jewelry store in NorthPark Center, we happened upon the heavenly Tribal Crystal Milagro Pendant ($295) & Tribal Bicone Necklace ($317) by Virgins, Saints, & Angels. These necklaces are amazing on their own, but they are a real show-stopper when stacked together.
The delicate strands of black diamond crystals on the Tribal Bicone Necklace provide a lovely backdrop for the large Tribal Crystal Milagro Pendant. Not only is the large scale of the black diamond crystal pendant impressive, but we were mesmerized by the unusual cushion cut of the center stone and the blessed Vatican coins that dangle from the bottom of the pendant. I am envisioning wearing these beautiful, hand-crafted pieces with–everything!
The beauty of these objets d’envy is they are special enough to accompany a cocktail dress, or you can wear them every day for a chic sense of spirituality. Purchase these two dazzlers as-is, or customize your own piece with choice of medallions, finish, crystal colors, and more. Contact owner Lisa Alfieri at the Dallas location of Swag 214-691-0123. Pieces are also available online at www.lovemyswag.com.
The kind gentlemen who own the Vintage Martini boutique in downtown Carrollton, TX allowed me to preview new inventory before it made its way to the store. Whether you are in search of clothes, jewelry, shoes, hats or handbags, they have wide array of amazing vintage items. Don’t worry… I only bought one necklace, so there’s plenty of goodies waiting on you.

Take a look at this insanely cool Chado Ralph Rucci jacket over a pink and orange beaded vintage gown. The jacket still has the original Neiman Marcus tag for $18K.

Luckily for my wallet, these Jimmy Choo crystal sandals were not my size. *sigh*

I wish my coffee table looked like this… covered in jewels from Kenneth Jay Lane, Givenchy, Stephen Dweck and more. Naturally, I spent most of my time around this table. I have been in search of a bold gold necklace and found a beautiful, hammered, 80s-inspired one. Love it!
I have a huge noggin’ and tons of hair, so I am rarely able to wear hats. That doesn’t stop me from looking and dreaming though. I have never seen so many stunning feathered and embellished hats in one place! I tried to convince Elissa from @DressCourage to buy a Christian Dior hat covered in fiery feathers of orange and red. (Still working on her)
I can’t believe it’s taken so long for me to get into vintage shopping. I had so much fun! If you are in the Dallas area, take some time to see for yourself. Follow Vintage Martini on Twitter at @VintageMartini1.
