    I love vintage pieces, they are so unique and alot of fun to wear. To me when i want to wear vintage there are no rules, any piece can go with casual or dress, just have fun and enjoy. Vintage are the pieces that are carried down along with the history and stories that make each piece unique….

    What a pleasure to see beautiful and creative pieces that are affordable. I am so tired of seeing lovely jewelry and finding that the price is “only $2,500”. That is so unrealistic for me and 90% of the population. The offerings so far on faboverfifty have not only been stylish but they have been within my budget. Even the magazines geared towards teens such as Allure have items that are way beyond budget. Also, to my dismay most of the jewelry and other items in Ophra’s favorite things are not within my means. So congrats to faboverfifty for staying real.

    I really like the Pop of Color and Tribal Twist necklaces … but it gets sooo hot and humid here in the summer that I cannot imagine wearing one more layer of anything! And I find necklaces catch on the fine wavy hairs at the back of my neck and that’s painful! So necklaces are wintery decoration for me, with turtleneck or high collar underneath.
