Save or Splurge: Earrings
When it comes to earrings, I wish I could say save. I see so many cute, quirky pairs of earrings at Target or For Love 21. I would love to wear them, and wouldn't really mind when I fell apart since they cost about $5 and are a lot of fun. I would recommend that trendy earrings be a save, if possible.
However, all of my earrings have to cost a lot. My ears are sensitive, or just picky, I guess, so I have to wear gold earrings. I hate that this keeps me from wearing fun, cheap earrings. It does mean I will someday splurge on some classic and simple earrings so I don't have to go around with nothing in my ears. Those kinds of earrings, like basic hoops, are worth a bit of a splurge.
Also, I am considering buying gold/white gold earring wires at a jewelry supply store so I can switch out wires on cheap jewelry. This way I'll still be able save on the funky stuff.
Are earrings a save or splurge for you?
