Vintage Pearls (and Giveaway!)


I can’t believe it’s already Thanksgiving this week. I feel like Labor Day was just yesterday! It also means the biggest sales of the year are around the corner, so you better believe I’ll be giving you the scoop here, and on social media. But before we go down the Black Friday rabbit hole (I already have anxiety!), I wanted to start off this holiday week with another fun giveaway.

I teamed up with another friend and badass female entrepreneur, Jill, the founder of Sweet & Spark, an amazing online vintage jewelry shop. She and her dad scour every big antique show and vintage shop to curate the best selection I’ve ever seen, at great prices.

I personally love her classic prep collection. This multi-strand pearl necklace is everything and this long strand of Kenneth Jay Lane pearls is gorgeous, for only $68. Because each piece is one of a kind, I can’t link to the exact pieces I’m wearing in this post, but you can find a lot of similar pearl earrings and pearl necklaces.

These beautiful pieces are perfect for holiday parties, which gave me the idea idea to style two outfits with the same sweater and red shoes, changing just my pants and baubles for very distinct holiday party looks.

I love the first one with the most adorable plaid pants, statement earrings, and my favorite red lipstick (in Habanero) for a brunch or gift exchange. The second look is chicer and fancier because of the wide-leg pants and long strand of pearls, making it perfect for a dinner or cocktail party

To create your own holiday party attire, Jill and I are giving away two $150 gift cards to Sweet & Spark, giving each winner the freedom to pick whatever they want as a little pre-holiday treat. Scroll all the way down to enter, all you have to do is enter your email. As an added bonus, she’s giving you 20% off through Friday with the code LEMONSTRIPES. Happy vintage jewelry shopping!

    Hello Julia! How are you doing? I love the all black outfit with the red shoes, super classy and cool! I don’t think you can ever go wrong with pearls, it’s just how you match it clothes wise. Hope you have great plans for Thanksgiving – it seems like it’s even more important than Christmas in the US. Hugs from London, Julie x

    I am in love with your tartan pants and your one of a kind jewels! I’ve become a big fan of antique/OOAK ever since buying my replacement wedding ring (loooong story) from an antique dealer. My ring was originally made in the 20’s and I just love the classic design! I love the all black outfit with the pearls, would make a great (warm) outfit choice for New Year’s! xx Rox-Anne,
