This is going to sound awful, but I have always seen clip-on earrings as an “old lady” sort of thing. Not having pierced ears was certainly more common among the older generations. I am pretty sure my grandma wore clip-on earrings. Therefore, the clip-on earrings I am familiar with have a very vintage feeling about them. Most of the ones I have seen are large, button styles. They are meant to conceal the fact they have a clip without being too heavy. So you can probably imagine my surprise when I came across the earrings you see here. Introducing the Alexis Bittar New Wave Earrings.
My relationship with spiders is quite strange. If I see one in my car when I am driving, for example, I might freak out if I think it is going to descend on its silk right into my lap. Yet if I see one crawling around outside, I can calmly pick it up (using a container, of course). I’m not sure why that is. I think it helps though if I think of the book Charlotte’s Web. It was one of my favorite books as a child, even though its kind of sad. So I suppose it would be alright if I allowed myself to like these earrings you see here.

I love linear earrings! They are more wearable than chandelier style earrings. You’re still getting the look of a large earring, but the long and slender shape is much more flattering. So I’m always on the look out for new linear styles and recently I spotted a pair that I absolutely love! Meet the Lizzie Fortunato High Noon Tassel Earrings!
When it comes to fashion, I say the more unique an accessory is the better. My style is very classic an sophisticated but sometimes it’s fun to go a little over the edge. I’m not too fond of jewelry but if a piece is really different and eye catching, I’ll get it. With that said, when I saw the TOM BINNS “Bejeweled” Open Hoops my mouth dropped! They are totally out of my price range but they sure are pretty to look at.
I consider myself an old school kinda gal. I love the etiquette, fashion and mannerisms of our past. Let’s face it, everything was so elegant and sophisticated back then. I’m in love with Frank Sinatra and Audrey Hepburn is one of my idols. The fashion of our time has changed greatly but thankfully there are still some designers out there that give us vintage inspired pieces. Some people despise reproductions but I love them. If I can’t find a certain fashion piece from the 60′s or 70′s that I really want and it was remade, you better believe that I will buy it. There is nothing wrong with fashion that is made to look old, in fact I love when designers do that!
I am not sure what it is, but there is something about Monserat De Lucca jewelry that has been calling to me lately. The designer is well known for bringing together different elements from opposite sides of the style spectrum. Delicate and edgy, feminine and masculine… the lines defining these elements have been blurred. I love it! The only problem now is that I keep falling in love with piece after piece, making it difficult to choose just one. Most recently, I have fallen in love with these earrings here. Meet the Monserat De Lucca Three Dove Earrings!
I’m not one to go on a boat or be near the water. I think it’s relaxing but it’s definitely not my style to get drenched and ruin my hair and makeup. I know, sounds kind of snotty but I’ve never been a fan of water. I shower in it, drink it and that’s about it!
However, I strangely love anchors and anything that resembles a sailor especially if it’s old school style. The “Logan Anchor” Earrings are adorable and definitely an accessory I would wear! Let’s face it, Summer is coming and nothing screams the Summer season more than the beach.
