We Heart These Joelle Earrings

As a hardcore SVH fan — I collect the books and still read them on the beach during the summer — I cannot wait to dive in and find out what that bookworm Liz Wakefield is up to now that she lives in New York, and whether Jessica Wakefield’s bad girl antics have finally landed her in some real hot water. And, oh, I am dying to read how their style has evolved since the years when they wore matching lavaliere necklaces. After the jump, what I imagine naughty Jessica and good girl Liz would wear now!
