Designer Spotlight: Melanie Auld (On Sale!)

Designer Spotlight: The Melanie Auld Sale

My name is Sophie Leon and I am addicted to online window shopping, which I guess is better than being addicted to just online shopping. I can’t help but open every “New Items!” email and click through every lookbook of the latest fashion porn. Every once in a while, a designer collection catches my eye, but my inner accountant sternly reminds me that my favorite item is out of my price range. I return daily to gaze upon my favorite piece and imagine what it would look like with my current outfit. Months later, if the item goes on sale and I am still obsessing over it, I consider it a sign from the gods. Today, my friends, is one of those days. Keep reading »

Must Haves: 10 Edgy Pairs Of Front-Back Earrings

Ever since Emma Watson showed up to the Golden Globes in January wearing Dior’s asymmetrical double pearl earrings, I’ve been dying to find a similar pair of front-back earrings. Basically, front-back earrings are when the back of the earring — what would normally be a boring post — is actually a decorative part of the earring. Many of them mimic the look of tunnel earrings without the stretched out piercing hole. Sometimes front-back earrings are even two pairs of earrings in one. When I went to Paris in May, I stumbled upon a little jewelry shop that was selling a pair similar to but decidedly more affordable than the Dior earrings, but the smaller pearls could also be worn separately as plain ol’ studs. So cool! Click through for 10 pairs of front-back earrings I’m totally loving…

The boutique where I work on weekends has some pretty crazy ear cuffs in our jewelry section, big ol’ things blinged out with rhinestones and crystal feathers. True statement pieces. A couple weeks ago, this little old lady came in. She was a classic southern lady, probably close to 90, decked out in Ferragamo heels, a fur bolero, and bright pink rouge. She picked up one of the ear cuffs and asked, “What is this?” I showed her how to put it on, and she looked in the mirror and gasped, “I look … badass.” “Yes you do!” I said, because she totally did, and she ended up buying it. So rad. I’m not sure I have what it takes to pull off a huge ear cuff like that lady, but I love the look of a dainty ear pin that extends up the ear a bit. This triple star design is so cool. Maybe not badass, but definitely cool. [$18.36, Arajera]

Golden Globes Style Stealer: Rashida Jones & Emma Watson’s Punky Pearl Earrings

I’ve always considered pearls to be in the same category as Wayne Newton, Werther’s Originals and “I Love Lucy,” i.e. “Things Grandmothers Love.” But after last night’s Golden Globe Awards, I have not been able to stop thinking about the pearl earrings Rashida Jones and Emma Watson wore. Rashida’s earring is actually called an ear pin and feature three pearls in graduated sizes; Emma’s Dior earrings feature a large and small pearl connected by a bar. Inspired by their vaguely punk take on pearls, I tracked down 10 pairs of pearl earrings and cuffs that you can totally share with granny.

Whenever I find myself assembling a red carpet gallery for The Frisky, I’ll gaze wistfully at some floor-length formal gown worn by Jennifer Lawrence or Kerry Washington and think, I suppose I’ll never have an occasion to wear something so fancy. Like, I don’t anticipate myself ever going to the Oscars or attending some black tie gala, so a custom Armani Prive gown is probs not in my future. It’s cool, I’ve come to terms with it. What I will settle for, however, is a pair of ridiculously sparkly earrings — and so should you! Wear ‘em now to any holiday and New Year’s Eve parties, and later to add a dose of fancy bitch to your favorite everyday look. Click on for 12 pairs I’m obsessed with…

Nashville-based jewelry artist Nora Catherine makes the most exquisite pieces from chains, beads, and hammered metals. Her whole collection has me drooling, from the hummingbird chandelier earrings to the butterfly wrap ring to the truly stunning tree of life necklace, but I chose to feature her spiral chain hoop earrings because they’re such a fun, unique take on a classic style. They’re just fancy enough to pair with a little black dress for a party, but not too fancy to pair with jeans and a blazer for brunch. Oh! And Nora is generously offering Frisky readers 15% off through the end of December. Use coupon code “15frisky1213″ at checkout, and happy holidays. [Hoop earrings: regularly $67, $56.95 with discount, Etsy]
