I live in Houston, Texas, where women still dress to impress...
yes, life is so much more casual in every way...
just look at the St. John Collection to see how everything's changed...
we used to say that in Texas girls wore St. John Evening to lunch.  LOL
Sometimes I'm sorry about this, but in another way more casual works for most of us and it seems unusual to see someone "dressed to the 9's" during the day...
for example, I was referred to a new doctor recently, turned out to be a woman.
except when she walked into her office she was dressed head-to-toe in designer
apparel.  My immediate thought was, "she's more concerned about what she's
wearing than her patients."  Incorrect, of course. But, 1st impressions, you know?
I have worked in luxury retail for most of my life, therefore, always knew how to
present myself within the confines of my position.  Now I'm a jewelry designer, with a tiny studio where I can wear my silk pj's if I want to.  It's wonderful.  When I call on my boutique-clients, I get dressed for that - but it's a lot more casual then it used to be.
It's nice. We have an opportunity for our personalities to come to the fore,
let's take advantage of this.  Be quirkey, be daring, be original  !
Anyway, tomorrow you can always change.  Voila
prices of any piece of jewelry available upon request

bye for now, Marsha
