Pearl Giveaway & Sponsor Highlight: Louis Anthony Jewelers

I am so excited this Monday morning because there is a super snazzy giveaway at Savvy Mode, thanks to Louis Anthony Jewelers. Pearls have this special place in my heart for its classic elegance. I used to wear pearls only with suits and formal dresses. But, I am giving my pearls new life with casual looks by layering pearl necklace with necklaces of different elements. Also I have changed the look of a pearl necklace by adding a simple black satin bow on the side to wear with t-shirts. This look is casual and chic.
Louis Anthony Jewelers is owned by Veronica and Lou Guarino and is located in the South Hills area of Pittsburgh, PA. For 18 years, this Pittsburgh Jewelry Store offers a carefully chosen and undeniably stunning selection of jewelry, timepieces and gifts to their valued clients. They provide the kind of warm, familiar service that goes beyond knowing your name to knowing what's on your personal wish list because it is a privilege to share life's most treasured moments with valued clients. Louis Anthony believes in building friendship, loyalty and trust with their clients, not just selling pieces of jewelry. I wear pearls with formal evening dresses, suits for dressy days.
But now, I have fun with pearls with a nice shirt and casual outfits for a casual chic look. I don't know why but wearing pearls almost make me feel instantly glamours and chic.

  61. My favorite way to wear pearls? There are so many possibilities! The look I've been wearing most often lately involves an extremely long strand of creamy-colored freshwater pearls that I got while in Maui on vacation a couple of years ago. I wind them around to create a double-strand look, then wear them with a blouse or sweater that matches the cream color. It creates a really beautiful monochromatic look--both unique and classic, at the same time. Pearls are pretty much my favorite way to accessorize outfits!

    I've also written a post about your giveaway at my blog: http://sweetmysteriousfeast.blogspot.com/2010/01/speaking-of-classic-pieces.html
