Obsessed: Marine Motifs & Beach Inspiration

I'm not sure if it is because summer is just around the corner or that I live by the sea now but I am kind of obsessed with Marine motifs, beach/sea themes prints and jewels. This attraction reminds me of the beach themed Gianni Versace collection from Spring/Summer 1992.  He was a master mixer and alwys combined the most amazing pieces.

Ooooh to only get my hands on even just the shoes and accessories from the collection!! The BOLD colours, mixed metals, Mixing sea and animal prints, marine motifs, studded leggings and silk crepe .....  

As with everything in fashion it's all coming back again.  

Even Ga Ga Dipped into the Versace archives and has rocked the sea side shell pants from the S/S 92 collection

Flash forward to CHANEL S/S 2012 showing "shell" clutches and embellished purses. 

and the house of LANVIN with their clam-tastic bags.

Even Donatella Versace dug into the archives for the 2012 season with shell motif jeweled pieces and beach themed accessories.

Other beach themed pieces I LOVE:

I also feature many beach themed rings in my NEW Vintage Re-Styled Ring Line: EVOLUTION REWIND
I have re-styled authentic Vintage Brooch's into fabulous cocktail rings on 24k Gold & Silver plated mounts.  They are available on-line and via InvenTORI LA. Each piece is ONE OF A KIND! Pricing ranges from $35-$150
