Clip-On Earrings Love

BY Intern Maura in Style

So clip-on earrings aren't exactly "on-trend" as far as I know, but ever since my earlobe ripped (it's pretty gnarly and I'm strangely proud of it), I've had to acquire an appreciation for them-- which wasn't difficult! The thing about clip-on earrings is that many of them--especially vintage ones--are like little brooches for your ears.

As someone who still wishes they could dress up like Rainbow Brite, you can imagine my excitement when I stumbled across Tierra on Spring street, a small store full of handmade jewelry in the most rich, vibrant colors these eyes have ever seen. The store, which looks more like a wooden hole in the wall, is one of the happiest places in the LES. Being inside Tierra is like entering a rainbow. Read More
Iconic Brit jewelers (and longtime BUST favorites), Tatty Devine have sparked a huge response on Twitter in the last 24 hours after posting these pictures on their blog highlighting the dubious similarities between some of their classic designs and those currently on sale at UK high street chain, Claires Accessories.  Coming at already challenging times for all UK retailers, these cheaper mass produced versions pose a real threat to the well-loved indie label. Tatty Devine say they hope that the response will persuade the company to withdraw these pieces. Read More
