Shop Friend: Grey Gardens Collections

Edith Beale has always been fascinating to me. First cousin to Jackie O and Lee Radziwill, it was in her genetic makeup to be a socialite with a flare for style. In her later years (as filmed in the documentary Grey Gardens), she and her mother lived nearly penniless in their mansion until the city threatened to condemn it.

A member of her family recently started "Grey Gardens Collections" featuring accessories both modern and vintage that are inspired by the "Edie" look. Click here to visit!
Above: from the modern collection $295-395. I love that these blingy rhinestones are on velvet cuffs!
above: the site also has a section on the past, with curated vintage accessories and decor carrying Edie's aesthetic. $25 on up.

I remember that the documentary was so interesting to watch. She and her mother had to sell their beautiful jewelry to support themselves.
