I love door knockers like nobody’s business. Thick with different shapes, thin and flat, round and steady, while remaining light. They made a huge comeback over the last few years, with everyone wearing them for what felt like thousands of shoots and fashion shows. With them, outfits by strangers seemed interesting and cool, in an instant. And while others threw down for price tags that crawled over a hundred dollars (and sometimes more), I stuck with the beauty supply store, or a cheap pair from & Other Stories.
All of these pairs remain in good condition, and I had plans to wear them with every single spring blazer and summer dress my heart desired while dreaming of warmer days this winter. Insert the mask, a new style must, making care as community and fashion rounds, at once. It is inarguably a must. But, my ears aren’t convinced my old ways of earring use work with the sometimes-cumbersome use of a mask.
Too many things on the face? Strings too long? Ears pulled too tight? Do the door knockers grab a hold of the extra fabric while running, for far too long?
I know in the grand scheme, these questions are tiny and irrelevant, but lately I’ve been wondering how everyone is fairing on earrings? I mean, I know people go out less than before. But in my case, I don’t look like me without earrings.
While on tour last spring and needing to rotate my earrings with my outfits, I started purchasing light weight, colorful resin earrings. They were earrings that didn’t seem cheap or too expensive. They weren’t heavy, but also not so light in which I’d forget I was wearing earrings to begin with. They did this very-in between job, and it was fun to play up my eye shadow in contrast to my earring color.
Now with a new face addition, I’m leaning on those a bit more. But wondering, what is everyone else wearing these days?
