Fashion No-No's A La Martin
I thought I'd take today to discuss one of my biggest fashion pet peeves: earrings. I know that a young woman takes a large step in their lives when they get their ears pierced (unless it's already been done for you.) I have no problem with ear piercing. I have a problem with overbearing earrings. I was going to put more than one photo up but this is a great example. Long stringy earrings are only good for one thing: brushing dandruff off your shoulders. Sure, they make you look at the neckline but they also make your ear look long and misshapen. I have a bigger issue with big hoop earrings. Someone is going to snag that thing on something and rip your ear off. If the long stringy earrings make your ears look deformed... big hoops go the extra mile. If I were a true prick, I could see myself throwing things through the hoops in a crowded restaurant. Alas, I'm not and everyone has a right to dress how they want. Some man out there may have a fetish for seeing bicycle tassels and bracelets hanging from someone's ear but I'll hold off.
