Take away the blue eyeshadow, and this look could have come out of a current fashion magazine. A sparkling statement necklace is one way to dress up a basic sheath dress for evening. Add a simple up-do and matching earrings and you're all set to dazzle for the holidays. This image was featured in Glamour magazine, December 1959. The necklace is by Schreiner, now a highly collectible name in vintage jewelry.
