Pearl Necklace

Chanel once said "a woman should wear ropes and ropes of pearls". Agreed! Thom Browne for spring (left) and then a few weeks ago at Donna Karan for Fall 2011. I don't recommend running for the train in the knee length Mr. Browne used to accessorize his schoolboy blazer, I like the exaggeration of an opera length (48 to 120 inches long) worn casually. Donna Karan's marble-sized princess length looks elegant & unapologetically faux.
