Dramatic Pearls


I have always loved pearls. Today's modern approach can be as dramatic as you wish. Go oversized-although this Peter Jensen version above is clearly just runway fun. Layer multiple strands. Wear them draped on your back for dresses with beautiful or low cut backs. Mix real and faux. Such a beautiful and timeless but current look.

Pearls draped on the back is a fantastic idea. Great post. Pearls are so classy and go with everything. A sophisticated woman wears pearls.

BTW: Mrs.Obama is beautiful.

Whenever I think of pearls down the back, I think of Nicole Diver from Tender is the Night, sitting on the beach on the Riviera, making up her lists.
