The Best Earrings Ever (Oh, and Some Clothes)

I am convinced (convinced!) that these are the best earrings ever:


At the very least, they are the coolest earrings I own and I love them.  I got them last Monday when I was looking for a rhinestone brooch for this Saturday.  They are vintage, and for some reason, they were only $3.00!  And, unless the reason they were only $3.00 is because they turn ears green, I will be wearing the heck out of them.  I may even wear them if they do turn my ears green.  Because I’m hard-core like that (which, btw, when I hear hard-core, I always think parkour and it makes me laugh.  For no reason).

I also wore clothes today:



I layered a men’s button-up (thrifted) under a long wool cardigan (Ports International, thrifted) and over black leggings (Ross).  For the accessories, I decided to stay with the “Big Cat” theme of the earrings and added a leopard belt and my animal print wedges (80%20 via Piperlime).  Blah, blah, blah; did you see the earrings?!

Happy Thursday, All!

  2. I love this look--the crispness of the blouse, with the leopard belt, and the long red cardigan is sharp! And what a great pair of earrings!

  5. Great outfit! Are those earrings vintage '80s? Because I remember a LOT of lion head jewelery from back then. Love the mixed animal prints as well.

  6. I'm pretty sure "hard-core" makes you think of "parkour!" which makes you think of Schmidt from New Girl, and that's why you laugh.

    This outfit is gorgeous. So rich!

  11. I love those earrings. It is so much fun to find old accessories at the thrift store and rework them. There is a little flea market right by my house that has the best stuff like that. I also love the mens shirt repurposed and those leopard wedges.

  12. Those earrings are amazing and I'm with you- even if they turned my ears green, I would just paint clear nail polish over the back and continue rocking them! :) I love the funky shoes and the leopard print belt!

  13. you look classic & sophisticated dear gracey. i've heard if you use clear nail polish on jewelry it prevents things from turning green. i wonder how your ears would react to that though?

  19. "I also wore clothes today" hahahaha so funny! Yes! Those earrings are AMAZING and at $3, a serious steal! Just paint some clear nail polish on them to keep them from turning too much :)

  20. Those are some seriously awesome earrings! I know that when I buy jewelry it would be much more sensible to buy simple pieces, but somehow I'm always drawn to crazy, eye-catching pieces like those earrings!
