Shake Ya Tail Feather

What do I love more than jewelry? AFFORDABLE jewelry! It's easy to covet a classic Tank Cartier timepiece, a one-of-a-kind Fred Leighton find or a simple (but statement-making) pair of Chanel logo earrings. We see these things all the time in magazines: on the lobes of loaded starlets, on the pinky rings of party-hoppin' socialites and so forth. But I must be honest and say nothing pleases me more than finding a perfect, reconstructed (or possibly left alone) vintage piece in a flea market, thrift store or perhaps on Take this piece by Macon, GA-dwelling designer, Susannah Cox. Her line "goods" can be found on Etsy, and it features her signature wire-wrapped twists and turns combined with vintage charms to create funked-up feathery confections.

Pair this chest-length $37 steal with a $28 soft & slouchy tee from Alternative Apparel , your favorite skinny jeans and flats (or boots if you're feelin' woodsy), and you've got yourself an outfit for $65. These days, it's all about punching up what you already have to piece together the perfect ensemble.

* Perk! Alternative Apparel is offering free shipping on all orders (with no minimum purchase required) until 12/17/09, so hop to it and get yourself this look for less!
