It seems like there are always new things in the fashion world that are popping up. Sometimes they really are new, sometimes their just new to me! Today I happened along Alexis designs. I have no words! Okay, I actually do. The simple lines and exquisite fabric use has me in awe. I love everything about it! I WANT all of it!!
I do have to give a shout out to HauteLook on this. I wouldn’t have known about Alexis if they didn’t have it featured today. By the way, it’s a featured designer right now so if you are in the market for some awesome, unique pieces definitely go check it out!
Now for some eye candy……
There’s something about vintage jewelry. I love it! It doesn’t have to be valuable, in fact my recent finds were in the $5 both at Hopkins Antique Mall. I love stopping in there to find unique pieces! This time around it was a Mother-of-Pearl tassel rope necklace that you can tie in multiple ways and the other was a gold coin ring. They are definitely great additions to my collection.
Most of my favorites are costume pieces I received from my grandmothers. they both had some fun things they allowed me to pick from when I was younger. Luckily I was careful and held onto most without issues, with exception to the blue Tiki god styled necklace that I pulled apart, played with and then lost. I still have the bracelet but that necklace was something I wish I still had!! I don’t know the story behind it, but I bet it was a fun trip somewhere far away!
Do you have vintage jewelry pieces that you love?
It’s so interesting how all larger cities seem to have an Uptown and a Downtown but that doesn’t always necessarily mean the same thing! I saw the ad from StyleMint today and had to laugh. I’m not sure what city they are referring to (probably NYC) but it’s the COMPLETE opposite as here in Mpls! Our Uptown has always been a little on the edge where downtown, where the theatres live and other events that you would dress up for, it is definitely where you will see elegant gowns, refined styles and maybe even a fur or two! So when I read this ad and looked at the awesome outfit inspirations, I had to think in reverse!
Uptown vs. Downtown
Speaking of StyleMint (or Mint in general), I DIE for these Marcelle shoes!!
What are your city centers like? Is there a definite style divide?

One of my favorite moments at the Jazz Fest was the wedding party that asked to use the truck as a backdrop for their photo op. How could I say no, their dresses matched perfectly!! :)
It was a great two days at the Twin Cities Jazz Festival! Can’t wait to do it all again today at the MN Food Truck Fair!
