‘Tis the season for office parties, events and cocktails after work. I find the simplest way to transition from day to evening is with jewelry. I know not everyone can wear a leather top to their office but it is covered up and conservative leather, so it is appropriate for my job as managing editor. The addition of a sparkly necklace after 5:00pm like this Simply Vera Vera Wang Two Tone Bead Bib Necklace gives my look just enough bling for a party.
