Double Pearl

I'm declaring the Dior Tribal earring as still being a thing - I don't care if this is actually the case (I can't see why it wouldn't be, honestly) as I love them and have coveted them for ages.  I've been obsessed since day one but - obviously- not willing to dish out over $400 for a trendy pair of earrings. Not yet, at least. 

Enter Etsy, and a lovely Canadian shop called Alessandra Taylor. They offer a version in a variety of colours for under $20 shipped. Sold.

 I ordered the earrings on a Saturday and received them on Wednesday, and have been wearing them ever since. At this rate they'll probably have fallen apart by the new year, but hey, then I'll have a legitimate justification for purchasing the real thing, right? 

In the meantime, I fully intend on buying another pair or two from this Etsy shop. One perhaps in a colour, and another in either black or grey. That way I can mix and match if I'm feeling fancy. The classic pearl is gorgeous though, and if you're looking to buy only one pair to try I would say that this should be the one. Versatile, classic, perfect.

If you're feeling crafty, I did find this DIY tutorial - but I've never been patient enough to try it myself. Besides, if I can get them for under $20 and they're already made, then why bother making them myself?
