Gretchen Jones rocking some gorgeous accessories (and clothes for that matter) in Refinery29’s Peep The Accessory-Filled Wardrobe Of A Project Runway Star.
Check out her own jewelry and fashion designs as always cleverly mixed with Vintage pieces (often provided by us, Ruby + George). You can buy many of the pieces Gretchen wears in this feature by visiting www.rubyplusgeorge.com as they are lent to her (she rotates out her favorites seasonally).
This picture is especially great as she is wearing my Grandmother Ruby’s leather cinch belt, handmade by my Grandfather George in the 1950’s.
Thanks for the mention and pic of our Antique Trade Bead Necklace!
Denver Dress Up is going local for the IFB Summer Accessory Extravaganza!
During the summer season I love two things: statement jewelry and a killer swimsuit (that totally counts as an accessory, right?). Accessories are the best way to express yourself without revamping an entire wardrobe. I also love shopping local, so to pay tribute to all-things-Denver each look features a local Denver designer and model. There’s no pigeon-holing my fashion here! Follow the links to shop my favorite picks for summer fashion accessories! And let’s not forget that it’s always trendy to support your local designers.
