I’m a huge fan of costume jewelry even though I know not very many people are fond of it. Coming from someone that never wore jewelry a year ago, I love that I can buy quite a few pieces of costume jewelry for the price of a real piece of jewelry. I’m sure as I get older or perhaps when I’m in a relationship I might then have a soft spot for real jewelry once someone gives me a piece that holds some sentiment. However, I must say that I have always wanted a real pearl set. I would love to have pearl earrings, a pearl necklace and a pearl bracelet and I’ve been drooling at a set at Tiffany’s for years.
I’m an old school kind of gal. Audrey Hepburn is my idol and I would say she can take a lot of credit for my fashion mannerisms. Women use to wear pearls all the time back then especially with suits and I love how elegant they look. Pearls are so classy looking and I would love a pair to wear when I’m dressed up, which is pretty much everyday.
Now that you know about my love for pearls, I’m sure it comes as no surprise that I’m loving the Santi Pearl Clutch. It might be covered in fake pearls but this bag is fabulous. The pearls mixed in with the crystals gives off such a beautiful look and it almost looks as if this bag could have been found in the ocean. You obviously can only fit your essentials into the bag but who cares. This makes one drop dead gorgeous evening bag and I sure wish it was mine. If I owned pearl jewelry, I would purchase this bag in an instant!
