Ear Cuffs

The title is self explanatory and I apologize that it's not witty, but it's way too early for me so my capacity for wittiness is kinda limited at the moment... was I ever witty to begin with? Hmm... Anyways, let's get into it. So you know when you read a fashion magazine, there's ways of reading it, some people just flip to see the pretty pictures, some to smell the new perfumes that have released (and maybe rub it on themselves... just saying! Ok so maybe I've done this a few times...). Then there's the ones who look for the quizzes or the personal horror/advice stories to read. And then there's the people who really intensely read for ideas and inspiration. I have to say I think I've become one of the latter. 

Nowadays when I go through fashion magazines, I find myself jotting down and even using post it tabs to remind myself to blog about an idea or a fashion trend that's popped up. And that's how today's blog came to light. You might get lucky today if I decide to do the designer spotlight post today as well. I'm trying to be more diligent with my blogging as of late. I want to reach out to as many people as I can and I think it is working... it's going to take some hard work and a lot of time but I'm up for it. I know a lot of people are curious as to when the website will be launching with cute clothes and accessories. I'm happy to say it's coming along, but I want to do it right so we're looking at a late summer/fall time period at the moment. I know what I want it to look like and I don't want to give you guys a second rate experience shopping, so bear with us :)

So onto the topic at hand... ear cuffs! I don't know if you guys have seen anyone wearing them, but they were mentioned in VOGUE magazine in the May issue and I've seen it make it's way onto the ears of famous celebs around the globe. It seems like earrings either get larger, or they creep their way up our ears nowadays. But this season's trend (for ears that is) is to either go big or go home.

What's your take? My verdict = Meh, don't hate it but I'm not into having a snake crawling on my ear. I prefer the subtle ones. I like the winged look but I think simple is key for this trend.
