Lilac and Pearls

When I think of pearls, I immediately think of Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s.  The iconic picture of Holly Golightly in her black dress, opera gloves and over-the-top pearl necklace is probably one of the most recognized from the glamour days of Hollywood. These wonderfully embellished jeans were on the front table of my… Read More Lilac and Pearls


More Olive

I’m still milking this shirt for all its got. It’s such a great fall transition piece! Almost everything goes with jeans, so no surprise this cute top does as well.
