So when I lived in VA, it was a trend were I worked to have jewelry parties. I must have gone to 5 jewelry parties in a year. The hostesses were always cheesy and the jewelry overpriced. I had heard their same speech party after party. One thing I remember at every party was the women pushing the idea of wearing large earrings to make you look thinner. They women would say when you're in a bathing suit you should wear big earrings and they will make your body look smaller. Have you ever heard of more bullshit in your life? How is 2 inch earring going to make my 270 pound body smaller...DUMB! So every time I wear big earrings I think about that. I do not think my earrings make me look smaller, but I do think they are cute and they make me happy. So lately I have decided to wear more earrings. I'm really having fun playing with big earrings, especially when I wear my hair up. Here is a picture of my latest earring purchase. FUN!
