Vintage Bakelite Dress Clips!

Hi All!

Finally it is spring time in New York and elsewhere and time to trot out those little sun dresses and tank tops! What better vintage jewelry accessory to wear but a Vintage Bakelite Dress Clip! We have read and heard that they are gaining in popularity once again and we could not be happier!

Did you know that famed fashion designer Coco Chanel in addition to creating popularity for lots of vintage costume jewelry, had a great impact on increasing the popularity of the Vintage Dress Clip?!

Vintage Dress Clips are so  very versatile and can be worn in a variety of ways such as horizintal, vertical, at an angle, on a hat, scarf, lapell suit pocket, sweater and on and on….how about hooking a vintage dress clip over a chain to create the look of a pendant!?

Would love to hear about any vintage dress clips you have.  Are you looking for that special vintage dress clip?
