While flipping my closet out for summer attire I realized that my wardrobe has lost its flavor. I used to be prone to outrageous combos, and was a real fan of double-knit. Maybe now that I am “older” I am shying away from my more whimsical ensembles, and the last thing feel like doing is shopping for new clothes. They are expensive and made to fade these days, so I’ll tone it down a bit but that means it is time to accessorize! This was the first bunch I encountered when I closed my eyes and dunked my hand into the FREE miscellaneous bin in the church basement.
After thoroughly cleaning off the layer of caked on 80’s foundation, they didn’t look half bad. Using wire cutters I snipped the metal holding the posts to the drop, It is that rigid, close to the ear thing that makes them really look bad.
then I simply slipped on regular earring wires. (When apple comes up with a phone that makes me look gorgeous in selfies, I’ll take a pic.)
the final pair was pretty chunky and ugly but I wouldn’t give up. So I clipped them onto my high heels for a dash of 80’s glam.
The most important thing is to have fun and try to find little morsels of coolness. Unless you want to look like everybody else 🙂
