As a relatively recent convert to the world of multiple ear piercings, it has taken me a bit to find my footing in the extra accessories category. I'm someone who wears pretty much the exact same jewelry every single day, so having more places to put that jewelry was proving a little daunting.
After tiring of the placeholder earrings that I chose for piercing purposes, I decided it was time to branch out. I was looking for a little color to offset the gold and sparkle of my other earrings, which is how I ended up browsing through Alison Lou's pieces. One of Lou's signatures is enamel detailing in a rainbow's worth of colors, but I kept coming back to this pretty lilac style. It's subtle enough to wear every day and the purple hue complements the mainstay shades of my wardrobe. I bought two so I could wear them as a pair, or just link one in solo with a different earring. Who knew you could have so much fun with such tiny jewelry?
