Bell Sleeves have found a way to my heart.  This crushed velvet burgundy bell sleeve Vintage beauty is an incredible piece--and perfect for the Holiday festivities coming up.
LYLIF was so kind to ask me to choose an accessory of my choice to style.  As soon as I saw this necklace the 'Aztec Princess Necklace' I knew the possibilities to style it were endless.  I love how it has so many elements: the turquoise, chain tassels and black beads.  It really feels like a special 'museum' piece to me that was taken from some time in history.  I didn't take off this necklace all weekend and wore it quite differently in a different outfit with all black/leather.
I actually evolved this entire outfit around the necklace, and it really suited this dress in a sort of hippie-wood-nymph-Renaissance way.
Take a gander at LYLIF for some fun finds at amazingly affordable prices.

I imagined that here you could be the vision conjured up during a mediaeval alchemist's fume-induced dream that betook him as he searched for the philosopher's stone. This is the stuff of tarot cards ♡
