I love big long earrings. They make such a statement. I have long hair so I like to wear the sparkling long ones so people see them when I move. I love the ACB suede tassel earrings too!!

Beautiful selection! I'm a bit lazy when it comes to earrings, but I love looking at them! I kinda of dig the Ungaro ones and the Illincic pieces are insane!

Julia, the Thanksgiving Girl said...

Aw, everything's so pretty, I would wear a lot out of these! The Giorgio Armani triangle ones are so unusual though, I guess they only work with a very nicely proportioned face... But who knows!.. :)

Oh so alluring indeed! I love the studded hoops. And I adore big earrings though sometimes I can't do them cause they're just too heavy on my ears. I do love the lightweight ones though!

So excited big earrings are "in" again. I think they look good on everyone. Particularly liked the last pair.

Grace said...

That's funny, actually, because today I chose to wear a pair of big, over-the-top hoops. So fun!

Mimi said...

Fabulous post dear! I believe earrings can make an outfit. If nothing at all, I at least want to have my trusty studs. Great ideas on here!

Almodovar would love this post !!!!
I love huge earrings but the problem (or the good thing) is that I really really look almodovarian while wearing them... just stepped out of the eighties, it's even a little creepy xD

Susan said...

I am not brave enough when it comes to earrings- most of the time I wear my stud diamonds. I will have a try on big ones this spring! :)
