Creation Station

Top: Club Monaco, Skirt: Vintage (similar), Heels: Christian Louboutin, Necklace worn as Belt: Ralph Lauren, Clip-On Earring worn as brooch: Vintage Chanel, Clutch: Vintage Judith Leiber

I love finding different ways to wear my accessories so that they feel like new pieces!
That being said, you've seen me use my vintage shoe clips as brooches here & here,
but this time I decided to take my vintage Chanel earrings and try the same thing.
So fun and worked so well!
Sometimes it's all about being creative with the things you already have!

Happy hump,
Nicole

whenever I shop I constantly think, how many ways can I wear this (also might be the reason why I own so many scarves)? The longer the list the more my desire grows. With that said....your earrings have become a brooch as well as shoe clips and I feel like I maybe saw you use it as a necklace pendant and I think thats incredible! Can I haz?
