I love using vintage jewelry in my styling work. The brown and gray crystal and stone multistrand necklace is from my private collection. It really adds warmth and light to basic gray. I used it for the Shabby Apple fashion show and photo shoot and then again on one of the main characters, Debra Wright (Dawntoya Thomason) in the movie, The Grace Card. (In the first photo, note the unusual design of the earrings. They actually fit down into the outer ear. Very uncomfortable!!)
This style of necklace would really make a statement with casual clothes as well. Picture it with a crisp, oversized white/off white shirt (left untucked), skinny jeans or cropped pants and fats...a la Audrey Hepburn.
The Grace Card will be released in early 2011. It's a very moving drama that tackles the race issue, family relationships, and faith. Check it out at http://www.gracecardmovie.com/ Shabby Apple photo by Dirk Olsen. The Grace Card photo by Dorothy McCuskey.
