Pearls for Springtime

"Pearls are always in good taste" Elsa Schiaparelli

We are having fun with pearls this season at Hey Viv ! Classic pearl necklace and earrings sets dress up a simple blouse or little black dress. Colorful long strings of pearls can match your every mood. And can you ever go wrong with pearl studs? just ask Elsa Schiaparelli.

Pearls never seem to go out of style.  I think of the 50's housewife style like Donna Reed wearing pearls while doing housework in the 50's in the "Donna Reed Show."  And Audrey Hepburn in pearls with her Little Black Dress in "Breakfast at Tiffany's."  Nowadays I see bold pearls as a statement look with that same Little Black Dress.

          

You can do the retro cute cardigan with pearls look or mix it up in unexpected ways and add pearls to a T shirt, leather jacket, or striped anything.  Try some colored pearl strand necklaces  to accent or contrast with your top.  Wind them around your wrist for a bracelet, or through your hair as a twist. Donna Reed's traditional pearls have changed with the fashion times.

And if you don't want to go way out with pearls consider the Pearl Stud earring.  A quick, classic.
