I've been dabbling in Bakelite jewelry collecting for a while now, though my collection is so little I don't often wear my pieces. So, while I'm building it a little, I always look for cute accessories that are vintage inspired but aren't as expensive as the real thing. I was surprised to stumble across this Teardrop Sparklite™ Brooch when lurking Etsy one day because it's quite similar. I love companies that sell Bakelite-inspired pieces and this has the look and feel, but doesn't cost as much as the real thing (thank god, I can't fund two addictions). If you're looking to read up a little on Bakelite, try here or here.
I'd seen this eShakti dress on a few ladies and was so sad to find that it was no longer on the site when I went to purchase one for myself. BUT, one of my favorite things about eShakti is that if you wait long enough, they'll often bring pieces "back" and that's exactly what happened. I love the collar + big buttons on the dress, the bright + happy plaid print and of course, the pockets. I also think it's my new lucky dress because I found a vintage Butterick pattern while out antiquing that I''d been looking for. Also, if anyone wants $30 off an eShakti order, comment your email below and I'll send one along.
