I have had this little black dress since the late 1980s, when I bought it to attend an event at the Philharmonic Center for The Arts in Naples, Florida. I can’t believe it was so many years ago! The Austrian crystal pearls are special, because they were a gift from my mother in law. The white-gold diamond ring is another sentimental favorite; it is very old and was given to me by my late paternal grandmother, who worked as a “beauty operator” until she was in her 70s. All are classics, and still stylish today. ~Janis Lyn Johnson
