As I've written before, I work primarily from home, and wear my mom uniform most days. However, I do have occasions to get more dressed up - and that's always fun. This past weekend was one of those times. It was a great weekend. My daughter is home from college on a break, and we went out to dinner and to the ballet on Saturday night. I was in the mood for some big bling - so I chose these costume pieces that are bigger and flashier than any fine jewelry I could afford.

Even though it has a lot of flash, this piece looks equally great with dressy clothes for Saturday night, or with a black top, jeans and cute flat shoes.
Late last summer I was with my daughter at Nordstrom's anniversary sale. I wasn't really shopping for me - we were outfitting the girl to send her off to college in the cold weather. Good thing we did - she's living just outside of Boston with 6+ feet of snow!
In any case, we wandered past the jewelry counter anyway (because I always do) and I happened to be wearing the necklace - with a tee and jeans.The saleswoman noticed it and asked where I got it - I told her - and if I had earrings to go with it? I said I didn't have "matching" earrings, but had plenty of things that worked well. She was not dissuaded, and said "you have to look at these!"

So, I say, bling it on!
Until next time.
