Baubles for a Bargain!

I have a magnet on my fridge, with a likeness of the Queen Mother Dolly Parton, that reads, "The smaller the town, the bigger the hair."

Since I was born + raised in a small town, I would like to add also....the bigger the earrings. 

Even in the 'burbs, I sort of have a thing for big ole' baubles.

I have tried being understated in small studs or tiny pearls like so many of my refined, preppy friends.

At the end of the day, I'm just far more Ashlee Simpson than Laura Ashley.


I don't know if it's because as a little girl my mother forbade the wearing of over-sized, adult accessories, despite my being 10 going on 21, but when it comes to earrings....size matters to me.

You can imagine, then, my delight (now that I'm 33 and still shopping at Forever 21) when I found these....

...each costing less than $7.

Yes, $7!  Cheap enough for even a child to afford, but yet, so mammoth only the most mature lobes can hold them.

Your ears heard it from me - fun + CHEAP earrings are hanging at Forever 21...(and they don't card you, even if you look well past the legal drinking age).

Love big chunky earrings but can't wear them everyday and usually opt for pearl and diamond studs. But on the rare (and I mean rare) occasion when we get dressed up to go out, I love a large dangle! You look great in them by the way and love the line... more Ashlee Simpson than Laura Ashley! Classic!

This post reminds me of Charlene Frazier's clip ons and telephone calls. Love me some southern hair and earrings!

I am the total opposite!!! I have tried, but I look totally ridiculous in huge earrings! I am definitely a studs (pearls or diamond only) kind of girl. I think it's because my head it small. I am jealous of how amazing you look in those big earrings. You're right-they suit you! xoxo

I LOVE huge earrings. My husband hates them, and keeps trying to buy me nicer, tasteful ones. I even like my pearl studs to be the size of nickles-ha!

I would love to be able to wear big, fun earrings but I think they just look so silly on me. But you look fantastic wearing them!
