Wear: Influenced by Family

For my birthday my mom and I went vintage shopping in Chicago and I found my favorite new shop- the Ravenswood Antique Market. With everything from furniture to jewelry they feature different sellers with impeccably curated collections of pieces from 1920-1970.

I was so excited to find this bakelite "Irene" pin in one of the jewelry cases, not only do I have a love of bakelite installed in my from my gram, but Irene was my great grandmothers name. Tall, stunning, and creative my great grandma was someone I really looked up to growing up- she had such an artistic hand and a great story to tell.

Head on over to RAM soon- maybe you'll find a piece that you can't walk away from.
