Coco Chanel aside, pearls have always struck me as prissy and old lady-ish, the kind of jewelry you’d wear with a twin set while watching your boring husband play golf at the snotty country club.

I am not a huge fan of “keeping it real.” Real often sucks. Where does real usually leave me? For starters: pale, too broke to afford jewelry I really want, mousy mop-topped and sleep deprived. I am not suggesting we all become cookie-cutter Barbies and I am all for embracing what nature gave us, yet… READ MORE »
