Inspiration: Grey Gardens

I recently saw the remake of Grey Gardens (with Drew Barrymore and Jessica Lange) and fell in love with the retro glamour style that Little Edie Beale possessed in the 1930s and 40s. She was a debutante, model and socialite in her heyday, and although we know how this tale bizarrely ended, Edie still remains a style icon.

Grey Gardens Collections is an amazing online store that celebrates this style and offers vintage jewelry inspired by the Edies. And it comes from a good source. The site is founded by Eva Marie Beale, the wife of Little Edie's nephew. Take a browse through the selection. The in-house designed velvet cuffs and brooches are especially notable.
