While Craves are normally something you’d want to buy for yourself, we’d rather love it if someone else bought us these Melting Heart earrings by Brooklyn designer Yayoi Forest. So if there are any boyfriends (ahem, ahem) out there looking for poignant yet not too expensive gifts for your lady, consider this pair which literally seems to say, “You make my heart melt.” Aww.
Fashion falsity #1,434: Nautical goods are for the spring and summer. So very untrue. Sure, they evoke the festive spirit of the warmer months, but we always find that a cute sailor-ly touch here and there can spruce up any old outfit. Try, for example, these simple anchor post earrings from Urban. Pop these on and pair with a boxy, cropped blazer, grandma chic-style, or go all-out with some Breton stripes.
We’re getting our Christmas tree today, which means I should be focusing on expanding our sad selection of ornaments (at last count we had one porcelain turtledove and a troll doll head with a wire sticking out of it), but I’d so much rather buy ornaments for my own head, like these festive earrings.

It was love at first sight when we peeped the nOir “Daggers” knife stud earrings because they’re everything we want in a piece of jewelry — shiny, glitzy, and violent. OK, so maybe that last one isn’t what we’re really about, but we do like to think of ourselves as women who are more exciting than your average wearers of stud earrings. So we’ll pick an earring that has some edge over a regular old ball stud any day.
After much deliberation — and input from my entire family at the Thanksgiving table — we’ve chosen a winner for our DIY-ed Isabella Laughland one-of-a-kind earrings! We asked you to tell us where you might wear these earrings, and, by far, the wildest place came from Frisky reader lip3, who will be taking a trip to China in February for the Chinese New Year! lip3 will be hobnobbing with diplomats and and party leaders in a Qipao (traditional Chinese dress) that was made for her. Enjoy your time there — we hope that these earrings make you feel extra beautiful during your trip. Email me and I’ll send them over to you! Keep reading »
If you’re a lover of costume jewelry, like we are, then you’re going to want to bookmark PNKElephant.com. Not only does this accessories site have of-the-moment rings, bracelets, earrings, and necklaces, but it also has really affordable prices. Everything is $30 or less, with many pieces priced between $7 and $10. Yes, you read that correctly. I sampled the fall collection yesterday, and can also tell you that the quality of PNKElephant jewelry is very high, unlike some of their competitors. The fall collection features military-inspired pieces done in matte silver and gold, but the PNKElephant team assured me that there will be more glitzy jewelry items for holiday. Take a look at this affordable and chic jewelry after the jump. Keep reading »
