Beyond a velvet blazer, another instant holiday update for dressing up is a fun pair of earrings. This is one of my favorite pictures of Lee Radziwill. I am quite sure her earrings are real, but I frankly I like the idea of a pair of somewhat over-the-top “faux” earrings. Something with unapologetic razzle dazzle, if you know what I mean. To me a pair of party earrings are more akin (but a chicer alternative) to a holiday sweater, an instant mood lifter.
