Everyone's all a-titter.

Olsen fashion is a guilty pleasure of mine, but these are some pretty interesting earrings on Mary-Kate:

From the heavens.

LaughingScarab is an artist I originally followed on DeviantArt, but also lusted for through Etsy (lusted for his earrings, that is.) His style is very distinct and kind of rough, but in a way that pleases me. I have been dying for these Mana earrings for months now, but I am saving up for summer classes so I can't get them. :( Major sadness!

I imagine they're pretty heavy on the ears, but they're so, so cool.

Big girls don't cry.

So, for my first mini-installment before I run out the door to a theatre function (to the forum!), here is a very small sample of some teardrop earrings I wouldn't mind owning.

I own eight pairs of teardrop-shaped earrings. I realized I had quite a few the other day when I brought another pair home (black and white checkerboard!) I will get some of my earrings posted in the next couple of days, as well as showing just how I am currently storing my bazillion earrings.

What I like about the teardrop is it can be a cut-out type deal, a woven deal (like the dreamcatchers --btw, I bought some two-tones for a dollar at a local shop so I can't imagine paying ten for them), or a solid hunk of material colored or treated a certain way. The shape, to me, at least, seems very flattering and very dramatic. I am not a fan of chandelier earrings or just strands of chains --I feel they get lost in your hair unless you put it up, and that they lack volume that earrings can definitely bring to the table. I feel pretty good in any pair of my teardrops, so perhaps I'm biased!

Toodle-ooh, dears!

The first post is always the most enthusiastic.

That's not necessarily true. However, what is true is that I love earrings, I own far too many for my tiny bathroom, and I haven't seen an outlet for any other earring lovers out there to come together and ooh and ahh. I doubt this will be a giant blog with a massive following, but it will give me some hobby to do in my spare time as I take pictures of my earrings, and find other examples on the internet that I fall in love with.
