I just unpacked from my weekend trip oversees, and I am proud to say that I brought nothing but a few slips of lingerie, shorts, a blazer, a pair of jeans, and my daughter. Before I departed, I vowed to take nothing but what I could fit in my carry-on bag, and when I arrived, I still found that there was no reason to pack anything other than white sneakers and a pair of heels. As far as accoutrements go, I only packed one earring and one necklace to lighten my load.
A single oversized earring? Yes, and the best part was when I had a conversation with somebody, they immediately stared at my ear and asked if I was missing something.
“Yes, I have one earring on and no, I replied, I’m just going solo tonight.”
The statement earring is back, yet again, but this time not in pairs. So if you have a tendency to lose one, you’re in luck! The Fall 2014 runways at Louis Vuitton and Céline embraced the art of only wearing one, a singular, emulating true French je ne sais quoi. These editorial darlings below seen on CR Fashion Book confirmed my desire to try the trend. I’m not convinced it is just a trend, but the good news is, you can always clip one on the other lobe, once you tire of the look. Natch.
