This weekend, I was surrounded by over 2000 pretty glamorous women. I was not as thin as I’d planned. My clothes were not as great as I’d planned. hadn’t gotten my hair cut recently enough and my nails, while freshly manicured, were all banged up from travel. Needless to say I was less than excited to be seen my the masses.Usually in these instances I hide behind shoes. I did bring some pretty awesome pairs with me but they were not the armor I needed this weekend. I did have a secret weapon that I wasn’t even aware of: my jewelry.
I got so many compliments on these pieces that I’m pretty sure no one even looked at my tired old clothes or my grown out hair style. People stopped me in my tracks to compliment the necklace. One lady grabbed my arm to get a closer look at my bracelet. Magic I tell ya’. Nothing like a good piece of jewelry to change your image!
