"Vintage jewelry is really the best way to wear jewelry, it’s very timeless and you don’t need a size to wear it," says Davis who highly recommends vintage costume jewelry. "While it may not be gold or silver, you’re still buying top quality pieces because they were made domestically." She suggests to always have a goal and look for sites that  include good photos and are willing to talk to you on the phone. Davis likes sites like Etsy MaeJean Vintage for one-a-kind pieces that come at an affordable price.

I love thrift store shopping and to tell you the truth sometimes I find myself better dressed than other people that only buy brand name clothing at very high prices :)
