Since finding clothing that fits is so hard, I turn a lot of my attention to accessories, like handbags, shoes, and jewelry. My mom instilled a great appreciation of jewelry in me growing up, especially pearls!
Pearls get a bad rap (sweater and pearl wearing Ivy League sorority girls and the Queen Mum come to mind for most people), but I thank Blair Waldorf of Gossip Girl fame to teaching an entire generation of girls that it’s okay to wear pearls. They’re not stuffy…they’re sexy!
That’s why I love to look through the glass cases at Iridesse, the pearl offshoot of Tiffany’s. It is a great mix of Tiffany’s quality and innovation, with beautiful pearls.
Well, due to the recession, another great store is biting the dust. I went to my local Iridesse store (Westfield Century City for you LA girls) only to find the entire store between 30-50% off! I’m sad that they’re closing, but I’m happy for the sale! Let’s just say I walked out of there with more than one shopping bag…and a Mother’s Day gift for mom!
The sale is not available online, so if you have an Iridesse store near you, this is great opportunity to invest in a beautiful pearl piece. Good-bye Iridesse, I’ll miss you!
