Dangly Earrings

Usually, I wear practical earrings, a pair of small silver hoops and a pair of tiny studs, and a small pearl in the upper crease of my right ear. I received a pair of earrings for Christmas, long dangly things with tiny glass beads. When I put them on, I remembered that you feel different with dangly earrings. I used to know that long ago. I'd forgotten.

Note to self: must look for more dangly earrings.

Earrings have always been a weakness of mine.

I never wear long earrings, I always forget. I have some pretty ones, too. Do you feel glam when you wear them?

When I lost my hair one of the silver linings I tried to remind myself of was now I could take full advantage of my fun, dangly earrings. My hair had gotten so long they weren't seen and weren't worth wearing. Isn't it funny how something so small can give you just a little more lift, a little more attitude. When I went through chemo my sister sent me some hollywood-style sun glasses we called my "diva glasses." Whenever I went into the plastic surgeon's office and was confronted by all these women with perfect proportions (while I was in the midst of loosing my hair and my breasts) I would proudly whip out my diva sunglasses...even inside. Made me feel so much better.Enjoy those fun dangly earrings! Blessings,

I love dangly earrings. My mother wears the coolest ones with feathers and beads and they look just right on her (she has long silver hair these days) with her colorful gypsy style. But they look silly on me--it's the glasses, I think. So instead I opt for hoops.

Life's too short NOT to wear dangly sparkly earrings.

I wear them nearly every day, even to work, where my patients appreciate them. As I type I can feel my Xmas angels dangling at my ears, where they have been admired all day,(even in theatre, ssh).

I did go through a phase where I didn't wear them. Looking back, that was when I 'let myself go'. Tsk, tsk.

yes we want to see the earrings! i used to wear the coolest, and i still have some of them... but for some reason the last few years, any time i put in a pair, my holes begin to hurt. so i am down to "real" studs which cause no pain. but oh i miss my dangly ones!!!
