Paralegal Career Dressing: Today's Deal Is Far From Innocent

If you're a regular reader, you know I believe that a long faux pearl necklace can take a simple outfit from merely appropriate for the law office or court to classic chic. Jada's Jewelshttp://www.jadasjewels.com/events, has several sets available right now in multiple colors.

A Far from Innocent Timeless Traditional Necklace & Clip Earring Set ~ $16.75 (Jada's Jewels)

I love the versatility of super long faux pearl sets, ranging from re-creating a 1920s flapper look when you wear them long, to an updated Mad Men look with you wear them short.

I also love my daily email from Jada's Jewels. On this paralegal and working mom's budget, I certainly don't buy jewelry every day, but it's fun to window shop via email. Once in a while the daily deal is so perfect for conservative offices and so reasonably priced, that I do buy a piece. Every single item I've purchased has been a lovely and invaluable addition to my accessories for the office.

And yes, I did buy this set. I don't wear clip on earrings, but I'm going to refashion them for a classic collar/sweater clip DIY like Mongs at My Thrifty Closet did with a fabulous pair of puppy earrings that I am insanely jealous of ;P  If you're not already following her, I highly recommend subscribing to her blog in your RSS feed reader (try free Google reader if you don't already use a subscription service for your fave blogs). She frequently gives thrifted items new life by refashioning them, and has a sense of style that is both original, yet classic. Inspired by Mongs, I'm on the lookout for the perfect $1 thrifted item to make over. (I actually sew fairly well and miss it.)

  1. I love faux-pearls and these are delightful. Unlike you, I wear clip-on earrings which are hard to find.

    One of my ears is pierced, from my teenage years, but the other is not. One of my favorite family stories is about that event. My girlfriend pierced my ear, back in the Seventies when it was very rare and controversial for a guy to do that. She used an ice-cube and needle; it hurt awfully. I had long hair then, so the piercing wasn't immediately obvious. A day or two afterward, I was eating dinner with my parents when my mother finally spotted it under my long hair and yelled, "Why did you do this to me?!!"
