First noticed on the spring/summer runways (which I chronicled intimately again in March), there was one factor I used to be sure of: 2023 was going to be the 12 months of huge earring vitality, and my prophecy has been confirmed proper. From Bottega Veneta to Saint Laurent, bigger than life earrings have populated the designer collections. Nonetheless, although I could report on the posh goings on within the business, quite devastatingly, my price range simply does not permit me to drop £800+ on a pair of earrings. So I made a decision to be affected person. Then, a couple of weeks in the past, once I was on Amazon indulging in my Marvis toothpaste and coffee-table e-book obsession, I occurred upon the proper outsized teardrop earrings.
Sure, these are a Bottega Veneta dupe, and while I would at all times advocate for getting the unique, as we have established, I merely haven’t got the price range to take action on this occasion. So, I made a decision to throw warning to the wind and order myself a pair. I select the gold colourway (these earrings are available in many, many colors). At £12 I did not count on a lot however, as quickly as they arrived, I knew I would discovered one thing particular.
