I've heard it's a fashion faux pas to wear brown and black together, but this color combination is one of my favorites. I always wonder who creates these silly "fashion rules" anyways. Regardless of the import of this fashion bylaw, I still hear a little voice in the back of my head that reminds me of all of the "do's" and "don'ts" of the season. Throwing all caution to the wind, I wore my fanciest dusty rose floral fastener and my 1940s doctor bag out on Saturday. The magnifying glass necklace holds sentimental value as it was my grandmothers. She wore the necklace daily, and she would use it to read newspaper articles and books. I can still remember her crouched over the Sunday morning paper with the magnifying glass in hand, carefully reciting the daily news to whomever would listen.
