Countdown to the festive season is well and truly on.
My capacity for new and fabulous ideas is getting stretched. It is that time of year.
After many thought-provoking hours to find the perfect Secret Santa gifts, the fun presents for friends and family and trying to pack for the holidays, I’m running out of ‘outfit’ ideas.
When in doubt, my mind jumps to accessories. I pull out the trusty LBD or the black pants and jacket combination and find myself a new pair of dingle dangle earrings to festive up. Since letting my hair do its own grey thing, earrings and colourful statement style numbers, have been a very easy way to dress up.
Drop earrings have my best friends forever – I have always worn them. They make me feel dressed up, however simple my outfit. With longer hair the earring needs to make a statement – especially for the evening – otherwise, they get lost and disappear in my unruly mass.
Earrings are one of those accessories you either wear or you don’t.
I haven’t been one for multiple piercings- I am more of a statement or nothing kind of gal. Which is not to say I don’t find some of the multiple waves of ear design fabulous, it’s just I haven’t got there yet. For now, I’ll stick to the bling and be happy with a one-on-one impact.
The idea of wearing a tried and true outfit and not having to think too hard about what to put together to make it out the door in time is winning me over; a wardrobe of earrings is the answer. Earrings, by the way, are one of the best presents to give or receive so if you are still looking for the perfect gift, these from Yoox could save the day. The other big, big winner about earrings – actually two fabulous features is they are timeless and ageless. (Most of the time, anyway. Let’s not mention the “bluebirds of happiness” fad.)
Need another little stocking filler, what about these?
