Show Your Pearly Not Necessarily Whites!

We all know that pearls have been worn in the fashion world forever. It was way back as early as the 1st century BC that China was known to string pearls and later in the 12th century was having them commercially produced! See, you did learn something new today after all! I am here to tell you that pearls have been here for a very long time and they will continue to be one of the most timeless accessories ever worn by us fashion mavens.
These are some pearls of my own from Talbots and I would have to say that they are my second favorite accessory that I own! My 1st favorite is an off white multi strand pearl necklace which you will see as you scroll down. These particular pearls are not white and not all pearls are white much to many peoples dismay. Cultured pearls can come in any color imaginable! Of course I love the way pearls look dressed up but I also love the look of pearls worn with jeans. They also look super cool worn with a simple tee and a denim jacket.

This is a page from my In Style magazine. I am especially loving the Chanel Satin Heels with the glass pearl pictured at the bottom. It's a little hard to see, but it's there. If you click on the image you will make it bigger.

If you don't have a pearl bracelet, then use a really long strand of pearls and wind them around your wrist multiple times to make a grand statement.

This is the Chanel Pearl Pump. This is a DREAM and I am in LOVE!

This is Audrey. I love her pearls draping down her back.

Last but not least this necklace from Talbots is my FAVORITE pearl accessory that I own:-) I wear it with so much more than I thought I would. I am so glad that I own it.

Thank you, Laura, for another tidbit of knowledge, and for giving me the incentive to wear my pearls more often and in different ways. (Loved the Travolta/white suit piece you mentioned last week.)
