1970s Owl Necklaces to Wear Your Wisdom

March 12th, 2014


Source: We Heart It

Symbolically, an owl represents wisdom. Owl necklaces became popular in the 1970s and the trend was called “Hoot Couture.”

Because the ’70s was a time of political, moral and ethical exploration in the United States, the value of wisdom became embedded in the nation’s consciousness. The features of an owl appear more human like too, as if you’re staring into the eyes of your reflection in the mirror.

Which is why when choosing an owl necklace, you get to choose a necklace that mimics your inner being or sense of self you’d like to fulfill.

Spirituality, passion, courage, knowledge, purity, sensuality and more are represented in the colors and designs of the vintage owl necklaces found in my latest collection on eBay, Owl You the Wise One: Vintage Necklaces for Charmed Wisdom.

Vintage I’m Lusting for Fall

November 14th, 2013

The other day my mom called me to ask, “What do you want for Christmas?” It’s a tough question to answer, especially when you’re trying to MINIMIZE your possessions and not MAXIMIZE them, which the world of marketing teaches us is the right, “happy” way. What I love about vintage fashion is that because there’s […]
