I still have love for oversized hoops and dangly chandeliers (they’ll always be among my ride-or-die accessories), but I’ve been diggin’ stud earrings lately.
Particularly big-honkin’ ones like these $42 Kristin Perry Sunflower Stud Earrings.
They’re 14K gold-plated with a stainless steel stud back and glass crystals in the middle, and I like that they’re kind of vintage and kitschy. They remind me of something Kate Spade might carry…but for, like, twice the price.
On a related note, isn’t it funny how your personal style and the things you like can change over time? There was a time when I would only wear silver jewelry.
Did you ever go through a silver phase? I wouldn’t touch anything gold with a ten-foot pole, but now I’m all about gold anything.
I don’t know when it happened or why, but I’m back to loving gold.
One time years ago my mother-in-law told me that when you stop wearing silver and start wearing gold, you’re officially old…
LOL! I don’t know if that’s true (I really don’t think so), but I do know that I mostly wear gold earrings and necklaces these days.
If you’re interested in these (aren’t they cute!?), they’re available now at Kristin Perry’s online shop. Check out her stuff sometime! She’s an L.A.-based indie designer, a great gal, and I love, LOVE her stuff. It’s like Kate Spade with an edge.
