Brainwashed by Fashion

In Touch Magazine is evil.

And so is In Style, and Self, and just about every other magazine that convinces me, though pretty pictures, to part with my money.

It all started with a free-giveaway contest that I lost. In Touch was giving away these amazing Viv & Ingrid Large Spiral Hoop Earrings in turquoise. I was gaga over them. I entered the drawing with visions of the glorious hoops dancing in my head.

It was not to be. I didn't win the drawing.

For awhile I tried to forget about them – I didn't really need them. They might be ugly in-person (so to speak). Maybe they're heavy, or uncomfortable, or not real gold.

In the end, though, it turned out they're gold-filled, and summer is coming. Nothing speaks of summer more than turquoise. Turquoise with jeans, with white pants, with my bikini in Hawaii… while sipping a Piña Colada…

Okay, sorry about that – I was day-dreaming. Hm. It seems that while I was dreaming, my finger slipped and I ordered them… and filled out the credit card information… and now they're coming to me via UPS.

How could that be? I guess I was brainwashed by the fashion magazines. It wouldn't be the first time!

    Such a lovely combination & they look securely wrapped too (always have to be careful to check with this kind of piece). So beautiful.

    Wow, what an amazing earring set! That turquoise truly is the color for this spring. Very popular. I’ve seen a couple other great turquoise Spring pieces like this one: http://www.elisajewels.com/product/turquoise-tiger and also this one: http://jewelry.novica.com/earrings/turquoise

    Those earrings are exquisite! It seems that hoop earrings are the newest trend for earrings in 2010. Maybe these will be of interest? http://bit.ly/deQs90
