None of the above

Today's listings of belt slides, buckles and sash ornaments don't fit neatly into any jewelry category. This type of accessory isn't really on our radar today but I think it should be. And not just for brides! Wearing a piece of jewelry at the bodice of a gown, to accent a high-waisted skirt or to dress up the tie of a plain coat is a great way to add a personal touch to an outfit. These types of things (much like dress clips) are quite versatile, too. For example, belt slides can often be slipped onto scarves and sew-on ornaments can usually be pinned into the hair, especially if you have an up-do!

Here are a couple other things in the shop that fit into this fun, much neglected category of vintage accessories:

DOWNTON rhinestone slide
METEORITE Art Deco arched slide
MISS MAPLE brass and silver buckle

This from the woman who taught me what a dress clip is. :) The other day I did put a pin in my hair—it made me feel sparkly and special all day. xoxox
