"If only you knew how mean she really is... You know that I'm not allowed to wear hoop earrings, right? Yeah! Two years ago she told me hoops earrings were *her* thing and I wasn't allowed to wear them anymore. And then for Hannakuh my parents got this pair of really expensive white gold hoops and I had to pretend like I didn't even like them and... it was so sad."
-The venerable Gretchen Weiners
Unlike Regina George, I can't really say that I'm a "hoops" kinda girl, as I typically prefer my earrings to fall solidly in the "non-yankable" category. A pretty alternative, today's finds feature a floating hoop for all tastes and budgets. You'll have to click through to their shops to see them "on the ear," but every time I look at these fun little studs the blonde in me kicks in and I think to myself, "Wow, they are just...floating there!"
