'If it sparkles at night, then don't wear it during the day'
Ah...I still hear those famous words from 'Madame M', (instructor at the prestigious finishing school I attended) as I slip on a piece of gaudy, sparkly jewelry - at 8 am.
Proper or not, sometimes I wear them just to 'jazz' up a plain, simple dress.
I bought this little sweetie on a trip to Vegas. I balked at the $150.00 price tag but with the shop owner chasing me half a block I ended up with it on my wrist for a mere $15 which now makes me VERY happy because see what's missing?
Uh-uh. Because for $15 a few stones missing is rather charming. You might think it's vintage from my grandmother or something like that. But at $150 it wouldn't have been the least bit cute.
Same thing with this one. A few little stones missing and I just noticed from the same exact spot. Gee. I guess I'm just rough on jewelry.
Maybe it's because I wear it during the day - therefore more wear/tear.
Oh well. I don't care. Life is way too short to not wear the fun stuff every chance you get.
So go put on your sparkliest 'whatever' and seize the day!
