Classic Wardrobe Essential

Tuesday, October 20, 2009
If you don't have a pearl necklace, you need to get one ASAP!! Pearl necklaces are such a classic staple and they instantly make your outfit look much more sophisticated. It doesn't matter if it's short or long, the trend right now is layering!! You can easily accumulate different sizes and lengths of pearl necklaces from reasonably-priced stores like Forever 21 and H&M. Or if you are into the real deal, check out Mikimoto Pearls.

  16. i love pearls. My grandmother used to prevent me from wearing one because according to their belief, married woman are the only ones allowed to wear pearls, if you insist and then you'll never get married, never ever. Nah! that's not true. Am married now for two years. hihihi.

  19. i am right there with ya on the pearl trend! i was in a thrift shop last weekend and they had a big messy knot of pearl necklaces. i was able to untangle 3 nice ones of various lengths... final cost, $10. so glad i didn't succumb to buying one at jcrew! i do hope to get a long real one some day. ~joelle
