AT LEAST TWO PAIRS

Although I'm usually a silver person, since the beginning of summer I've been adding more gold to my jewelry regimen. So far I've invested in a few new pairs of earrings from the dollar and thrift stores down the block.



Not pictured are my classic bamboo bangers (all you 'round the way girls know the ones I mean) and a pair of simple gold hoops with little telephone charms. Although I'm pretty much satisfied with what can be scrounged up for $.99 apiece at the Family Dollar, I'm still tempted by the tacky vintage splendor of gaudy earrings past: these two are from Etsy store The Moon and the Sea...





And this vintage Kenneth Jay Lane pair--literal doorknockers!



I don't really wear rings, but I love seeing people with a handful of them on. This Kemetic style would be a knockout among some big turquoise stunners.
