I begin this post with a heavy heart this morning sending my love and prayers out to the victims and families of Orlando. As I go over this in my mind, one million unanswerable questions pop up — making me wonder how we as a people can get through the unthinkable that has happened. The only answer that I have been able to cling to is: hope. As put beautifully by Harvey Milk, “Hope will never be silent”.
Sometimes, every once in a while, there is a moment in fashion that you just jive with — a moment with trends that you hope never stop being relevant. During these moments, you get more than the usual amount of inspiration when getting dressed in the morning. Right now is one of those times for me. The bright, embroidered, heavy with trims, hand made, ultra special thing (large emphasis on earrings – like these Mercedes Salazar earrings that scream statement) that is going on in the accessory world speaks to me.
These Mercedes Salazar earrings embody pretty much everything that I am thrilled about (in fashion) right now: a statement earring, Pom Poms, evil eyes, *bright pink*, tassels that aren’t blasé, and a bunch of floral beading. Check, check, check! I have worn these probably two dozen times since I purchased them in March and every time, without fail, I get asked where they’re from and/or complimented on them. A few of my friends are now Mercedes Salazar junkies and have purchased a pair of their own. I highly recommend you jump aboard that train and get yourself a pair. Also – good news, they are clip ons and are super light weight so you don’t have to worry about killing your ear lobes in the name of fAsHuN.
Happy Monday people – I am returning to work today after a long weekend in Miami with nearly twenty girls celebrating my best friend who is getting married this summer.
Wish. Me. Luck. xx
