Talk about "de Glitta and de Glamma"...
Posted by CAROLEE on 4/23/2014
Gwyneth Paltrow has it right... "It's ALL.... Good."
My work as a Director of an important NGO at the UN...
(non governmental organization) means evening galas and
cocktail receptions and ritzy lunches are a normal
part of my day... ALL are opportunities for making
myself memorable with "That Crowd" with pretty, elegant
pieces of jewelry, like pins, that go on suit jackets and evening gowns
and scarves-- sometimes on the cuff of a sleeve, sometimes on my shoulder...
I was soooo lucky. I inherited a collection of pins and clasps of necklaces
from my grandmother that were ALL TAKEN FROM NATURE--
Perfectly in tune to mix with CAROLEE’s Butterflies and Dragonflies and
Flowers introduced this Spring. I TOTALLY AGREE with Coco
Chanel that mixing is the most fun-- the Real with What-Looks-Like-Real--
especially with PEARLS-- My faves. Fill in a Suit Front with pearls--
Layer on the neck-and-shoulders of an evening dress with creamy, light-reflecting, pearls that make YOU LOOK young, FEEL gorgeous, and MAKE people ask,
"WHO is THAT?"
And here's a trick I learned early on from one of my friends at VOGUE...
choose an earring that makes the eye go from the jewel to YOUR EYES-- that's what Hollywood
film makers of the '30s and '40s did when selecting pieces for the stars...
CAROLEE’s new "Candy Cotton Aqua Squares" do JUST THAT-- They're FOOL-PROOF!
Your eyes are BLUE? POW! Your eyes are BROWN? POW!
Your eyes are GREEN? POW! That's the secret...and... That's the POINT>>>
