Jennifer Lopez is an actress, singer, dancer, and fashion designer. She is one of those celebrities in Hollywood who seems to have many professions behind her name. To Lopez’s credit, though, she has managed to become successful in virtually everything she has tried to accomplish. This is especially impressive because Jennifer comes from humble, working-class roots in The Bronx, New York.
Originally aspiring to be a dancer, Lopez eventually became famous for her starring role in the movie “Selena.” Lopez always seems knowledgeable about the latest popular trends, so it’s no surprise that she was seen sporting vintage jewelry from a Los Angeles-based jewelry boutique. With the popularity of such television shows as “Mad Men,” vintage styles have become more common than ever. Celebrities like Dita Von Teese, also take this vintage craze one step further, by incorporating pin-up glamour in their everyday attire.
Jennifer Lopez Seen Sporting Vintage Jewelry
Lopez was recently seen sporting a gold ring from the 1940s and a vintage chain link bracelet. These items were purchased from Platt Boutique, a jewelry store based in Los Angeles. On Platt’s website, they call themselves “the vintage destination for jewelry connoisseurs.” Lopez has her current boyfriend, Casper Smart, to thank for these vintage gifts, as he obviously put thought and care into buying her something she would genuinely like.
Jennifer Lopez originally became popular for her urban street styles, based on her upbringing in The Bronx, but her style has also evolved over time. No longer, the twenty-something aspiring dancer, she has become notably more glamorous, evoking old-style movie star glamour.
The treasure of vintage clothing and apparel that can be found in vintage shops serves as a suitable source of inspiration. Even famous fashion designers have been seen rummaging through vintage racks for their latest find and inspiration.
