I was just thinking about something my Grandmother used to tell me. She would say, "Dear, whenever you wear a black dress, always put on your best pearls with it. Pearls always look good with a black dress. That way you will always look elegant!" I listened to her talk but didn't really pay attention since I wasn't at the age where pearls appealed to me. But lately I've realized she was right.
This little black dress is really cute. I love the chiffon overlay and the detail put into the neckline. The skirt is short but having the chiffon swish around it lends itself to be quite " cocktailish". I did add simple pearl earrings and necklace and it did look elegant...and classy...and sexy. I always like bracelets so I had to put a pearl one on too. I tried it...and I like it. I guess Grandma knew what she was talking about.
Sometimes it's nice to look like a lady. I like to think I can be one when I want to or when it's necessary. My Grandmother's words ring in my ears. I'm beginning to think her advice was always right.
Good Night for now.
