Majorican Pearls

While we didn't really find any houses we loved as much as the one last week, and we even went all the way to a place that wasn't even having an open house.  I kind of hate these things - the real estate agents are typically so pushy, and at the first one we went to they were putting down the place we loved last week saying how they looked like "Brooklyn townhouses rather than a real home" (um, yes, that's why we liked them!).  However, we did meet a real estate agent we were absolutely enthralled by.  She was a much older woman, totally uninterested in selling us the house, full of fascinating stories, and dressed to the nines.  Her clothes were clearly very expensive but what struck me most was the super plain cut of everything, made interesting with a set of gorgeous Majorican pearls around her neck.

What I wore for our day of open houses:

laveer boxy jacket with leather and suede trim || burberry brit short sleeve tee with leather epaulets || vince ponte ski pants

I wanted to copy her today by wearing my mom's Majorican set - earrings, bracelet and necklace.  I love the look of these - they're like classic pearls with a serious edge.  Gotta work on the lighting in my living room, it's pretty rough when there's no natural light coming in.  A coworker told me about fixing the white balance so I'll have to try that next time.

If I could afford to have my entire work wardrobe be St. John, I would do it in a heartbeat.  Their clothing is so beautifully made and fits so well.  I found these Diana pants at Nordstrom Rack for $70 (off of $595) and knew I had to have them.  In fact, I hunted throughout the whole store for a pair in another color because they fit that nicely and were that great of a deal but to no avail.  I'm glad I was able to get at least these, they were totally worth it and to top it all off are long enough for me.


  1. Those pearls are from my island! :) I love how pearls like that one add a sophisticated touch to the outfit. You look beautiful x
