I've really been feeling myself over the gold hoop earrings I picked up from Need Supply this fall, which are pretty much like regular hoops except they have a smaller circle fused to one end — a detail substantial enough that I get a lot of comments on them. Unexpected geometry: It's arty as hell.
In the interest of furthering whatever stylistic power these earrings have lent me, I've been investigating other mildly offbeat, but net tasteful jewelry options. This hair pin, from the H&M offshoot Monki, is dead-on. It's just a circle! But have you ever seen one clipped into someone's hair like this? With this much negative space?
Here's what this hair pin says to me: I visit museums. Ones with modern art. Regularly. I can talk about architecture and have successfully roasted a turkey at some point. Your grandfather's going to love me.
Monki Circular Hair Pin, $8.96, available at Asos.
