So here it is, the final installment in my realistic accessories posts. The fun earring. Several posts back, I created a Polyvore set with lots of cosmetics, and 3 very expensive accessories. Accessories that I would never be able to afford. (unless I skipped paying some very necessary bills and went on a shopping spree instead) I decided to find some affordable items that I would be willing to spend money on instead of lusting after luxury items.
Alexis Bittar gold filled jewelry
Kate Spade chandelier jewelry
Kendra scott jewelry
Kendra Scott shell jewelry
Argento Vivo 18k jewelry
Kendra Scott 14k jewelry
Moschitto Designs filigree jewelry
Banana Republic disc jewelry
Betsey Johnson tri color jewelry
Tasha disc jewelry
Lemon Drop Chandeliers
I decided to keep them priced under $100. I usually am willing to pay around $50 for a great pair of earrings. This is where I admit that I live in a small town, and my local stores don’t sell lots of great options. Two and a half years ago, a good friend of mine invited me to attend a jewelry making class with her. I jumped at the chance to learn to make my own earrings. Now, most of the stuff I wear, I make myself. If I had the options of seeing these beauties in my local department store, chances are I’d save myself a trip to the bead store, and about 6o minutes of time, and just buy one of these. Every time I go to the bead store I spend about $50 anyway.
Since I’m a “big” girl, I wear larger jewelry anyway. Dainty stuff just looks silly on me. I’m also not afraid of color. Summer is the perfect time to try something a little out of your comfort zone. Style rules get relaxed a bit. I always find there is more fun and whimsy in summer fashion. So grab a pair of fun earrings and sport them with confidence this summer. You’ll look fabulous, I promise!
