On formspring.me a reader asked what my 3 favorite earrings are. Well here they are! (Sorry I deleted the question by mistake when I went to post it to Blogger.:-(
These are usually the three that I reach for regardless of what outfit I’m wearing.
The oversized rhinestone earrings (from Forever21; no longer sold but a very similar pair here) I wear when I want to go crazy over-the-top glam…and they look surprisingly fun paired with an old t-shirt and jeans. Plus, for a really formal event (not like I have many to go to!) they’re perfect with an LBD for some retro glam.
The large hoops are light as a feather and I love the tiny star detail at the back. They’re for when I want to be a little more dressed up but more classic. (bought in Japan)
The small gold hoops are a recent purchase in Tokyo (LaForet Harjuku though I also found them in another store along Takeshita street there) – I really love secure-post small hoops in gold since I don’t have to take them out in the shower and can sleep with them in, and they still look chic and dressed-up with a number of different outfits. I love the subtle studding on the surface. Alas, I found that they have too much nickel in them for my sensitive ears – and the post is a bit too thick, so I’m still debating what to do. After wearing them for 3 days straight I got a massive infection in my right ear that took more than a week to clear up. *sigh* Sorry, maybe that’s a bit TMI!
I also tend not to wear earrings that much, since while my hair is short I wear it covering my ears a lot, and it seems kind of pointless to put in earrings when they can’t be seen anyway…
What earrings do you gravitate to? Hoops, studs, sparklies?
Thanks for your question!
I have gold heart studs that I wear almost all the time. I don't change my earrings that much, but when I do I tend to go for something dangly and fun.
I have a hard time finding earrings that are comfortable to sleep in/leave in all the time, especially because I always sleep on my side. But earrings are one thing I can't get enough of and I have dozens of pairs! Currently my favorites are some gold and turquoise ones with dangly stones from Old Navy and some large black hoops from Forever 21.
I wear a little pair of sterling silver 'sleeper' hoops all the time. They don't bother me, I can' leave them in at night, and they work with anything. I'll put in fancier ones for special outfits, but if I forget, at least the little hoops still look appropriate.
