A Fairytale

You can see my freckles!

This is a sad story but it has a happy ending.

Several years ago I by chance saw some gorgeous earrings in Primark for two pounds. They were astonishingly beautiful and quite ridiculous, but for two pounds they were fantastic - giant bright pink heart shaped monstrocities which caused complete strangers to stop me in the street and say 'your earrings are huge!' Like I didn't know! Well I wore them everywhere, which is probably not the best thing for cheap earrings and soon the paint was chipped and the catch on one of them broke beyond repair.

I was bereft. They might only have cost me two pounds but I loved them. Well, since then I have been hunting for the perfect replacement and as you might have guessed I have found them. Yes, they cost me significantly more than two pounds, Yes, they are Juicy Couture, and Yes they're a little bit Chavvy, but I love them!

What do you love which is embarassing/uncool?

oh i love these, they could be chavvy if worn wrong, but so can many things. i think on you they are charming.

I love these too - don't know what I love more, the earrings themselves or the delightful box they came in.

I kind of still love Uggs, which is a bit uncool I guess. Haven't worn them outdoors in years - does that let me off the hook?!

I LOVE these earrings! So utterly ghetto fabulous! Can you believe that's the second time tonight I've used that phrase?! Haha!

I know exactly which earrings you mean - I used to have them in pink :) But these one are so much nicer.

MJ said...

You suit big earrings - I never do! Most of my coxing attire is pretty uncool: leggings, 'team' t-shirts, waterproof jacket, lifejacket, headband with mike attached... but I love it!

They are cool and look lovely on you!! Glad the story had a happy ending!! x

Oh Harriet, they are pretty! I don't think they are chavvy as long as they are paired with outfits that are unchavvy :)

I used to have a very similar pair from Accessorize until they broke, and I'd decided wearing hoop earrings just felt far too chav for me! They've got some pink ones in Accessorize at the minute if you wanted to get some cheap pink ones as well.

Huge earrings are so much fun! Hope you get a lot of wear out of them as well.
