For Christmas this year, one of my very favorite gifts were 2 pairs of antique dress clips! I've been admiring dress clips for a few years, but we don't come across them frequently when we are antiquing. They are a great start to what I expect will be a growing collection! ;-)
These marcasite dress clips are prettily understated, and I can't wait to try them out! :-)
I was so thrilled to get this Coro Duette set! It is a 3-in-1 combo- all pieces can be attached together, and worn as a brooch....
....Or worn separately as a brooch and dress clips! Such a clever design. Why don't they make jewelry like this anymore?? I really love the Art Deco vibe on this one, and I'm seeing the need for a fabulous 30s dress to go with it!
The most expected way to wear dress clips is in the corners of a square or sweetheart neckline, but I did a little searching around for some other vintage ideas on showcasing them. Here are a few of my favorites!
This collage has several different ideas for utilizing one or both of the dress clips.
I liked this unique idea for placing them on a lapel! My pinterest board has more ideas I liked.
Of course, after looking at all these ideas, I think this calls for a new dress... ;-)
