Today’s Fashion Friday continues our Bergdorf Goodman Spring Fantasy Shopping Spree with close-ups of the jewelry for each outfit that we chose for spring. Fantasy in fashion would not be complete without jewels. We were lucky enough to be loaned a stunning selection by Verdura, whose tempting boutique is on the first floor at Bergdorf Goodman. These magnificent pieces took our outfits to a new level of fantasy fashion. This renowned firm has a history of splendor, a history appreciated by those in the know—including such style icons as Coco Chanel, Diana Vreeland, and scores of Hollywood legends—for decades.
