Ever since I saw the below left image on Style.com (RIP), I have been slightly obsessed with A. Big earrings and B. the woman wearing them.
After much Googling and Insta stalking and I finally found out that she is Jenny Walton, illustrator and lover of a statement jewel, and the earrings in question are from J Crew – job done.
I’m not a huge lover of jewellery, but statement pieces I can do, so after discovering a whole J Crew blog post devoted to these oversize beauties I took the plunge and ordered a pair.
I love my statement necklaces but after seeing them on Essex girls on a night out in Shoreditch (I know I know – call me a snob) I decided I needed to update my look and a black dress with a huge pair of slightly ridiculous earrings ticks all my fashion boxes.
I ordered the Mardi Gras pair and they indeed gorgeous – but be warned if you fancy this look, they are very heavy and are in danger of dragging your ear lobes down to African tribeswoman status!!
Therefore have sat on my bedroom shelf looking gorgeous for a week. But I’m determined and plan to ease my self in gently.
If you are in Stoke Newington over the next few weeks – I will be the women in a tracksuit and statement earrings going to buy a pint of milk.
