Now Obama wears a lapel pin!

I have been amazed at the controversy over who wears a flag pin. Obama has not worn one because he said in April that "it has become a substitute for true patriotism." But, on the evening of his acceptance of the Democratic nomination for president, there he was with a rectangular pin symbolizing patriotism. Jewelry really means much more than adornment! It symbolizes support for a cause, political statements, charity, etc. Everyone should wear pins all the time! I challenge America to wear a pin of your choice, whether it costs $2 or $2000. Jewelry is more than just a accessory!

Hillary Clintons bling!

I watched the presentation last night especially interested in the jewelry Hillary wore. I was stunned by the choice of an orange pantsuit, because if I was making one of the major debuts of my life, something more fabulous would have been my choice. I always opt for simple clothes with jewelry to accent it. You could not even see her necklace or earrings and they blended into her skin. A choker of cultured pearls would have been the perfect accent to her outfit along with pearl studs. With a scoop neck, chokers look the best and even double strands would have made a great impression. And what would be even better, would have been a fabulous brooch that would have shown her class. Let me know what you think. Susan Eisen, author of Crazy About Jewelry

Where is the jewelry on Michelle Obama?

I watched the Michelle Obama speech last night and the main thing I missed was the jewelry. Why do people think that it is taboo to wear jewelry? Jewelry sets the stage for fashion, flair, and design. It does not have to be can be well made, a nice design, and flattering to the person. A tasteful necklace with the collar she had on would have done the trick for me. A call to the presidential candidates and their wives out there..................let's see some more bling!!!
