Ah, the life of a gal with sensitive ears. As a little girl, I always wanted to wear those plastic earrings that came in 20 varieties on a sheet. My mom took me to the closest Claire’s or Kmart, and I’d buy a pack with my allowance. I’d plan my outfit for school the next day to incorporate the new hot pink roses or lime green tulips. After 8 hours of hardcore hopscotch and tetherball, I’d come home with bright red earlobes cringing in pain. My latest investment turned out to be another failure in a series of attempts to wear trendy cheap jewelry. I’ve had my ears pierced three times after paying the price of these infections and I can honestly say that I’ve made this mistake again multiple times as an adult. No, I wasn’t swayed by plastic pink flowers, but costume Chanel studs that I couldn’t walk away from. Now that I’ve officially lost my final pair, I have vowed that after 30 a girl’s gotta learn to let go. Since I rarely wear silver, it’s 18k or above from this point forward. Who’s with me?!

Here’s the Wednesday Want List–practical jewelry style:
