Luxury FashionYou always knew it was a big deal when your mom put on her "fancy" earrings. You knew she'd wear a silky black dress and carry a dainty, sparkly evening bag. You'd sit on the bed and watch as she carefully applied her makeup-cream foundation followed by setting powder, mascara, red lipstick, finished off with a dab of Coco Chanel at the nape of her neck. The process-from the dress and shoe selection and subsequent displaying of the items on the bed, to the placement of the final hairpin-took two hours from start to finish. While you'll always fondly remember your mom getting ready for a special evening, you couldn't be more thankful that you don't need an excuse to don a fancy pair of earrings. Slip on a pair of Chip & Peppers, a black beaded v-neck Mimi top, your Gerard Yosca Oval Pyrite Hoops with Green Stones($100), and a pair of sexy wedge heels, then grab your Tod's Decoupage Pochette($745), and you're ready to go. Keep your hair and makeup simple or glam it up-the choice is yours.
