I was in Palm Beach some months ago and provided a guide to my trip here. My last stop was supposed to be House of Lavande, but I ran out of time, so I made sure to make a beeline to the store so as to not miss out this time around. It would be safe to say that House of Lavande is "the" preeminent place to pick up gorgeous vintage costume jewelry. The store is decorated lavishly with Gracie wallpaper, crystal chandeliers, and well of course all of that jewelry. Pull out one of those mirrored drawers (they span the store) to unearth a treasure trove of jeweled encrusted statement pieces from eras past. You could spend hours admiring the baubles and dreaming up their histories.
The rest of our day included shopping at vintage furniture stores on Dixie Highway, a stroll down Worth Avenue, and a celebratory dinner for my Dad's 60th birthday with family:
