Three Ways to Style Your Little White Dress

Although the little black dress is always in fashion, the long summer days we’re currently enjoying call for something just a little bit lighter. Enter the little white dress! A flirty white frock makes a great blank canvas for styling fresh looks, and we here at Heirloom Finds have pulled together three fantastic variations on this vital wardrobe essential.

Breezy Bohemian

The boho chic look is enormously popular this year, so don’t pass up the opportunity to let your hippie chick run free. All you need to do is break out that white dress and pile on a long tribal-inspired necklace, fringe earrings to match and a few of your favorite coordinating bracelets. This updated take on festival couture is the perfect ensemble for road trips, picnics and any occasion your creative spirit needs to shine.

Boho 1

From music festivals to just relaxing al fresco, a boho chic take on the LWD is the way to go.

Boho 2

We’re simply in love with this necklace’s Southwestern take on the modern tassel.

Boho 4

For your hippie chic bracelets, opt for beautiful beads, bold cuffs and geometric patterns.

Casual Chic

Whether you’re celebrating Casual Friday at the office or running errands on the weekend, this laidback look is the way to keep your LWD cute without overdoing it. You’ll need one white dress, one denim jacket, three or more dainty necklaces to layer (we love this combination of inspirational, iconic and magnifier pieces), multiple bracelets stacked in an arm party and a few of your favorite rings. Not only will you be rocking the trendy layered look, you’ll be showing off the baubles you feel that matter most. How fabulous!

This casual take on the LWD lets you curate a collection of favorite baubles to layer.

Ring stacks? Check. Arm party? Check. Super cute magnifier? Of course!

Casual 5

The adventurous vibe of this bracelet stack brings unexpected excitement to this white dress and denim combo.

Date Night Dashing

Planning a special evening out? We’ve been crushing on antiqued gold-tone baubles set with sparkling rhinestones as the optimum choice for fancy nighttime glamour. Simply pair that little white dress with a flattering blazer, add some coordinating high heels and then pile on the jewels! The edgy look of an antiqued gold-tone finish plus the classic shimmer of clear crystals will make this evening ensemble truly memorable. A few bracelets, two layered statement necklaces and one pair of dangle earrings later, and you’ve got yourself one gorgeous go-to date night outfit.

Fancy 2

These baubles glam up the LWD without becoming overwhelming.

Fancy 5

Could you ask for more amazing accessories for date night couture?

Fancy 1

High heels, edgy bracelets, a beautiful blazer and that LWD: perfection!

The effortless versatility of the little white dress makes it a serious style contender this season, so make sure your wardrobe is ready. As long as you have the right accessories in your wheelhouse, customizing the LWD to suit any occasion is sublimely simple. Whether it’s boho, casual or delightfully fancy, enjoy curating your own unique look!

Clip on Earrings

Why We Love Clip On Earrings

Here at Heirloom Finds, we strive to cater to a variety of fashionistas with unique style requirements. One such type that often goes overlooked and under-celebrated elsewhere is the clip on earring wearer. Some people prefer to avoid needles and piercings for a number of reasons, and so must replace post backs and French hooks with clips and cuffs for styling their ear candy.

Clip on Earrings Trio

These crystalline baubles are anything but lackluster!

What we find particularly fabulous about clip on earrings is that they don’t stretch out the holes in pierced earlobes. They can decorate both pierced and unpierced ears equally, without leaving any trendsetter excluded. And if you want to further accessorize your wardrobe and establish yourself as a fashion maverick, clip ons make amazing additions to sweater necklines, shoes and more! Because they’re so versatile and lovely for any occasion, we’re thrilled to offer a range of both new and vintage clip on earrings for your perusing pleasure.


Clip on earrings are lovely for lobes and fabulous for sweater necklines!

Although ear piercing is one of the earliest recognized forms of body modification, it did not become a mainstream practice in the United States until the 1970’s. A glance at vintage earrings dating from before this decade reveals gorgeous arrangements of colorful crystals that are so easy to love. The boldly metallic mod artifacts of the 1980’s have their own appeal, while today’s clip on collections are artfully curated to accommodate the diva who would hate to miss out on an opportunity to accessorize just because she’s never gotten her ears pierced.


Glam up your denim with clustered vintage brooches and clip ons to match.

Are you interested in finding alternative ways to style these versatile baubles? Arrange your hair into an up-do and add one or a few clip ons for a wholly original coif when you need to make a memorable statement. Glam up your outerwear by fastening some earrings into your jacket’s buttonholes as an outrageous take on traditional brooches. These methods are particularly excellent for giving new life to old earrings that have perhaps lost their partners but still deserve some time to shine.


Let your shoes make a statement by attaching some gorgeous clip ons.

There’s no need to be intimidated by clip on earrings. They come in extraordinarily chic modern designs and fantastically retro compositions, and are oh-so appealing for their ease of use that makes accessorizing refreshingly simple. So don’t be afraid to rock these beauties!  You could be missing out on something truly, fashionably wonderful.

A self-described “graphic designer who loves to sew,” Nikki runs Nikki Butler Design, where she makes clutch handbags and scarves using luxurious fabrics in her own custom prints. We thought it would be fun to turn Nikki’s intuitive style sense loose, so we asked her to match her favorite Heirloom Finds jewelry with selections from her own wardrobe. As she modeled her looks for us, we chatted about fashion inspiration.

Heirloom Finds It's Such a Tassel Necklace Earrings

Wearing Caught in Cross Hairs Bracelet and It’s Such a Tassel Necklace and Earrings

What kind of jewelry do you find yourself drawn to? Why?
I’m a pearl girl for certain because of their classic, timeless elegance. I also love sparkly! And colorful statement pieces always capture my attention—if you’re going to wear jewelry, let it be seen! Chunky bangle bracelets, cocktail rings and bib necklaces are excellent conversation starters. Jewelry in general makes me feel more feminine.

How would you describe your personal style?
I actually have narrowed it to three words: Classic, Feminine & Colorful. It’s become my mantra when shopping!

Do you have a favorite style icon?
I can’t narrow it to just one. I’d love to spend a day in Kate Middleton’s closet and I’m forever drawn to Jackie Kennedy Onassis’ timeless style.

You look great every time I see you, and it’s almost like that informs your calm, collected demeanor. Do you feel less like yourself when you have to rush out the door in any old thing you threw on?
Well, thank you! I feel most confident and myself when my hair is curled, I’m in full make-up regalia and wearing something feminine. Sometimes I wear sparkly earrings to the gym just to feel more like me.

Sometimes you go for an edgy look; sometimes, a traditional one. Do you think there are different aspects of yourself that become more apparent depending on your outfit for the day?
This is the reason that I have never been one to lay out my outfits the night before. Sometimes I even feel like I have a split-fashion personality! My closet is very diverse. One day it’s a floral skirt and heels, the next day it’s ripped jeans and flip flops. Watch out when I’m wearing my black leather pants!
