I recently tried on a pair of Nicholas Kirkwood booties with pearls in the heels and I was pleasantly blown away. I never thought of pearls as an embellishment for anything other than jewelry and for the prim and proper. This season pearls are the embellishment of choice. Just check out half of Gucci’s fall collection. Pearls are on everything from jeans to leather jackets and bags to shoes. We are talking the complete opposite of June Clever here. Therefore I rather like them a little bit more. Pearl embellishments are the shit!
Below are some pearls of wisdom I’d like to share on everything but jewelry.
