I don’t have pierced ears. It’s pretty rare these days and people tend to be shocked when I tell them that, as if I’ve told them I was born with one less toe than is usual. Even friends that have known me for a decade or more regularly forget about my Virgin ears. As a non-pinup it was hard to find clip ons so I didn’t bother, never adjusting therefore to the idea of adding earrings to an outfit to complete the look.
But then I became a pinup. I discovered that sparkly sparkly Lucite earrings were a thing. It took a while for the idea of them to seep through my years of never even thinking of earrings in order to become a wishlist item, but they recently became something I’ve really grown to love and I’ve been meaning to pick out my first pair. So it was a lovely and well-timed surprise that adorable Little Miss Savage sent me a surprise pair of gorgeous green Lucite clip ons from her new Lucite earrings range to try out. And my god. Y’all. I am in love. Converted. Bring me all the Lucite.
I’ve worked with Emily before, reviewing her vast range of head wraps, brooches and necklaces, so I already knew her work was quality offered at a reasonable price. But these earrings are my favourite, immediately and unquestioned. Part of why I’ve never bothered getting into earrings is that I always found clip ons to be really uncomfortable, sometimes painful, and making my ears sad is so not worth it when I sometimes make my feet sad with killer heels and my torso sad with restrictive shapewear. A woman can only bear so much, you know? But that beauty-is-pain sacrifice is not needed here. They’re comfortable, they make a statement without being overwhelming, and at £6.99-£7.99 a pair they’re an affordable piece of retro luxury.
Emily makes these Lucite earrings in both stud and clipon forms, as well as multiple colours and shapes. I’m super excited it’s almost payday because I’m now convinced I need to get red, blue, and silver/clear, to complete the collection of my favourite colours.
Emily has an eBay, an Etsy and her her own website littlemisssavage.co.uk, so there’s plenty of ways to check out her vast handmade collection of goodies and order. She’s also on Instagram as @littlemisssavage and sometimes hosts giveaways, so it’s a great idea to follow her there.
Thank you Emily, these gems will be getting a lot of wear.
