Blingers

I've wanted a nameplate necklace for a really long time, and it has nothing to do with a certain Carrie Bradshaw. In fact I didn't even want my name, in part because there's too many jerkfaces in the sea of millions here that would abuse that. I guess I wanted something more, er, "clever"? I forget where I saw it, probably some recent editorial, but the model had a nameplate necklace that said "Nobody." That was my AHA moment, so as soon as I had the chance, I headed down to Chinatown, and ordered up "Somebody." I'm kind of a smartass so it suits me well!



While i'm on this topic of shiny bold lady jewelry, I've been coming across some pretty sweet big earrings lately. I'm usually more of a tiny stud person myself (I have these silver cubes that have not left my ears), but look at these hoops...nothing but net!




Mouth hoop earrings, Aurélie Bidermann; Perspex phone earrings, Holly Fulton

Then there's this amazing piece from Ann-Sofie Back I spotted at Daily Projects that I don't remember seeing in her Fall collection. I don't even understand how this stays on your ear but it's totally badass! Instant sci-fi elf status.

Is it weird I like the mouth hoops the best because they make me the most uncomfortable?
