Inspiration: House of Lavande Vintage Couture Jewelry

I subscribe to too many daily deals / sample sale websites. You  know the ones: Gilt Groupe, Rue La La, Haute Look, One Kings Lane, Taigan... they all go into a folder so I'm not tempted to shop all day. But once in awhile I take a peek to see what's out there, and today I saw House of Lavande being featured on Taigan.

I don't know where I've been, but I've never heard of this shop before. It's a vintage costume jewelry collection that spans the 20th century, from the bakelite era in the 1920's to 1950's glam. Maybe because they're out of my price range (for now) I've mentally tuned them out. A quick look in their shop shows their pieces ranging from $400 - $3,000.

 But it's still free to window-shop... these are gorgeous, non?
