Ear Candy

Dress up your look with a chic earring or two

When we think of jewelry trends, statement necklaces, stacked bracelets and knuckle rings are usually the first things that come to mind. Earrings are often easily overlooked, but sometimes a killer pair is the only accessory you need to step up your look. Get a head start on one of fall’s biggest trends and rock one earring, a style seen on the runways at Céline and Louis Vuitton, or stick to a classic pair.

Whether you like to keep it simple or make a statement, we’ve got the perfect bits and baubles for any occasion. Shop our selection of the best ear candy below, from dangly tassels to pretty studs, and be sure to tell us…

Here is a bridal shoot we did a couple weeks ago. Photography by Mary Kalhor, prop styling by Melanie McCaughan of Into The Gold and Rhiannon Tangi. Makeup by Grace Fong. Model and muse is Jenna Arendse. Wardrobe styling + hair styling by us at Gidgette Bardot. This is the first half of the shoot, featuring a 1930s silk beaded gown, a 1950s lace tiered floor length wedding dress, and other bits and baubles from a Whiting and Davis gold mesh clutch, vintage gloves, and more. Stay tuned for the second half.

Both of these incredible looks are by Colin Alexander! I love them so much! That cape is awesome!

They originally appeared on his blog here:

along with this blurb: 

“EMMA FROST IS PUNK ROCK. She’s also one of my favourite X-men, so redesigning the character was scandalously good fun. Making the White Queen wear a practical uniform is a bit like taking all the baubles off a Christmas tree. Albeit a super rich, sexually overt, machiavellian Christmas tree. Capes, platform heels, inappropriate revelation of skin and a stiff drink. These are a few of her favourite things…”

Okay, here’s an observation on the Gray-Manes.  I mean, look at the face on Fralia.  This is not a happy woman, at all.  I mean, I know she’s got the thing going on with her son missing, but just look at that face.  There are YEARS of misery etched on that.  Then, check out Fralia’s inventory at her shop.  She is married to the guy who works the Skyforge, and her entire inventory of weapons consists of 2 crappy little iron weapons.  Not even a single Skyforge Steel weapon?  Nope, apparently Eorlund is hogging all that glory to himself, he just can’t be bothered slipping a few daggers to his wife to maybe make her little market stall a bit more profitable.  Nothing but “bits and baubles”.

Ask Fralia who the best blacksmith in Skyrim is, she immediately directs you to Eorlund, praising him.  Ask Eorlund for a sword when you join the Companions and he says: “A blade?  It will be as sharp as Fralia’s tongue!”

Everything about these characters just makes me feel like Fralia has been absolutely miserable for decades, and Eorlund is completely oblivious to it.

November 12th: This Day in Bones History

It’s a Booth-angst trifecta.

November 12th, 2008: The Con Man in the Meth Lab

Booth’s brother shows up and needs his help, and Brennan learns a little bit about shiny baubles and Booth brothers.

November 12th, 2009: The Dwarf in the Dirt

Dr. Gordon Gordon Wyatt is back, this time as a chef. He helps Booth key in on what’s bothering him most, and Brennan helps him shoot straight.

November 12th, 2012: The Patriot in Purgatory

A 9/11 victim’s remains are found, and it hits home to Booth when it’s revealed the victim suffered from PTSD.

I’m nearly finished with the set, but I also need to go to bed. Here’s my dear Andrea (no pun intended) as a deer princess. We made the headdress ourselves over a couple of hours with jewelry supplies from Michael’s in my living room (plus some extra bits and baubles I had on hand).
