    Vintage Inspirations: Oil Slick Metallics

    Calling all night chameleons! This week we parade vintage with dark iridescence, spurred on by a showy F/W 2020 runway trend. And of course, vintage was first with this carnival glass opulence …unless you’re counting bird wings, the insides of shells, and northern lights in a night sky—all supreme inspiration! Look for aurora borealis crystal jewelry in deep hues, dark iridescent fabrics, and beaded and sequined items with this timeless glow.

    Previously sold items include a 1950s Anne Fogarty sheath dress covered in dark iridescent sequins
    60s sequined and beaded clutch
    Kind of difficult to see, but this hat's feathers are iridescent black coque feathers
    Currently in my Etsy shop is this winter weight dress coat with large buttons set with dark aurora borealis crystals
