The significance of pearls

I woke up this morning, happy that my hangover was gone. (There was a fun-fair in town.) I decided to stop waisting time this summer and go back to work. I wanted to shoot some photos for my blog for some time, so I thought today would be as good as any other day.

I had a Michael Kors skirt just lying in my drawer. I have never worn it, but I wanted to, for some time. I found at the thrift shop a black and gold belt that fitted great with it. I also put a black blouse with angel sleeves to complete the feminine “touch” of the outfit. One of my favorite color mix is: black, gold and beige so, I decided to wear a beige pair of vintage boots with square heels.

I looked in the mirror but it was too simple for my taste. My style is pretty eccentric. I thought that a lot of pearls around my neck and on my face will do the trick. I always loved pearls!! I remember hearing a story when I was little about Cleopatra drinking a dissolved pearl in wine, in order to prove Marc Anthony that she can devour the wealth of an entire nation in just one sip.

Basically, pearls symbolize wisdom acquired through experience. They are believed to attract wealth and luck as well as offer protection. They are believed to be calming and they balance one’s karma.
