Dress You Up in My Love: Something Old

Recently, I was chatting with Nana about my “somethings” and mentioned to her that I needed a something old.

Her reply?

“What about me? I’m old.”


“What, it’s true!”

::shakes head::

When I was a little girl, I used to love going through all of Nana’s costume jewelry and trying on her seemingly endless collection of earrings, necklaces, rings, and hair pins.

Oh, that reminds me! Came across this gem a while ago…


What even…? / Personal photo

I told her what I was looking for in terms of my wedding day jewelry, she pulled out the box of jewelry as usual, and we sifted through, on the hunt for a piece I could use as my something old. When I pulled out a double-strand pearl necklace with rhinestone clasp out of its yellowing jewelry box, I just knew it was perfect! Pearls + Deco = Jackpot for Miss Jet!

This necklace also belonged to my great-grandmother, Grandma D’Arrezzo, whom I never had the chance to meet. A nice way to carry on my heritage and honor another member of my family.

So there we have it, folks! My something OLD, NEW, BORROWED, and BLUE!

What are your “somethings”?

    something new – my dress
    something borrowed – something from my Nana (not sure what yet)
    something blue – my sapphire earrings
