Modern fashionistas almost forgot about pearls and that’s their big mistake – these gems (real and imitation) reflect the light and bring luminous glow to your skin.
That’s why genius artist Jan Vermeer decorated his most famous model with a pearl earring.
True diva Audrey Hepburn shines in Bvlguri’s necklaces in Bloodline (to be honest, this movie movie is awful and even miss Hepburn’s charm and her stylish wardrobe and posh jewellery can’t save it).
Pearls on Debora Kerr’s draw attention to her beautiful shoulders and dress in Bonjour tristesse (1958) and heroine of Janet Leigh uses them to make her simple sweater more elegant in Touch of Evil (1958).
So as you can see pearl necklces have a wonderful quality – you can wear them with all kinds of clothing – black-tie, office and casual.
Any of these 4 pretty pieces can add a hint of feminine chic to your look (clockwise): Ben-Amun‘s Long Pearl Strand Neclace Chezh Glass Pearls and Swarowsky crystals, Crystal Leaf Marquise Cut Station Pearl Necklace, Mastoloni‘s Multicolor Keshi Freshwater Pearl Necklace and Tasaki‘s Sliced Necklace.
Not sure that pearls and jeans suit each other?
Here are Nectar De Stagni’s Shark Teeth & Cultured Fresh Water Pearl Necklace, Cheap Monday‘s Tight Pure Blue Jeans, Fonnesbech‘s Ella Shirt White and Tieks‘ Biscotti Patent ballerinas for an inspiration.
And without any doubt pearls necklace is a perfect partner for a coctail or evening dress.
If you want to look sexy and classy at the same time decorate Ali & Jay‘s grey Wan’t Be Silensed Sheath or Phase Eight‘s red Astrid Maxi Dress with necklaces from Tasaki‘s Sliced collection.
Most of the time I use big bags: I like them because I carry all my troubles my whole universe with me.
But you know, watching Bloodline (1979) where Audrey Hepburn highlights her grace with help of small bags (and costume designer Enrico Sabbatini of course, his work is the best thing in this dull movie) I realized that with my “carry all on my shoulders” accessories I look like a very material creature who almost forgot about her gentle feminine side.
I think we girls should time after time remind ourselves that our strength is weakness. And going for a walk carring only mirror and lipstick is good way to do it.
Modern fashion industry offers us a huge selection of small bags for any budget and style.
Henri Bendel‘s black Warren Street Micro Crossbody, Valextra‘s orange Twist Crossbody Clutch, Patricia Nash‘s Amatrice Mini Roll Bag Tooled Turquoise and Repetto‘s red Quadrille Oval Bag caught my short-sighted eye.
When my eyes are craving for beauty and grace I watch movies with Audrey Hepburn. Comedy Paris When It Sizzles is very far from the best, but nowadays it’s a rare pleasure to see a pure man and really beautiful woman on the screen.

Marvelous Marlene Dietrich made her comeo in Paris When It Sizzles
First on screen appear her famous legs then you see Marlene in chic white suit.
Funny thing: Marlene Dietrich and Tony Curtis are not credited in titles, but it was mentioned that Audrey was wearing Givenchy perfume. Product placemet was, is and will always be there. But there is a good thing: Gabi (Audrey’s character) doesn’t spray it each 15 minutes and others don’t exclaim: “What the lovely perfume you wear! What’s the name of it?”
