Not your grandmother's pearls

Pearls are usually thought of to be conservative, stuffy, or traditional.  Typically, most people associate pearls with their grandmothers or Barbara Bush.  That is until recently...  Gucci Creative Director, Alessandro Michele, used Pearls as one of the many elements to jazz up Gucci's extremely coveted opulent pieces.  What I love about pearl adornment is that it has a classic look and can be worn during the day, while sequins and studs may be a little much for the office. 

The great news is... the pearls have caught on and you don't have to pay Gucci prices to get a pearl-dazzled piece in your wardrobe.
