When you Think About …
A simple strand of pearls seems synonymous with sweetness and purity, which is probably why you rarely see me wearing them. Sure … I wear Chanel pearls and the like but you’ll rarely see me wearing the classic, simple strand that just wraps your neck. I think it’s because I assume they lack the modern edge I seem to veer toward in my style. Well, I’ve been thinking – I’ve decided I’m going to challenge and maybe ruin the reputation of the sweet pearl.
I’m going to try wearing them with the unexpected. I’m basically giving pearls another chance, a chance to take a walk on the wild side and not be SO prissy.
Now, the Chanel brand has done a good job of keeping pearls in fashion … a very good job. You see women wearing a strand of Chanel pearls with just about anything. Not unlike the Chanel jacket which also can be worn with just about anything. The brand was smart in that way – making its ultra expensive pieces seem do-able with the everyday wearings of the everyday woman.
So … here’s to changing the way we see the classic pearl. Let see if I can pull it off! Have a good one Girls.
