I love wearing earrings because they feminize, add color and balance my face. It's fun trying to match the correct style and color with my outfit.
I used to wear clip-on earrings only because I could not pierce my ears. Then a few years ago, I learned how to wear pierced earrings without piercing my ears and how the shape of your face can assist you in choosing the proper earrings.
I now wear colorful stud earrings without pierced ears. I even have a few dangling earrings. I cut off the stud from the earrings and use nail glue to attach the earring to my ear lobe. It works great as ou can see here.
I still buy earrings based on color and design and now I have so many more choices. The only determining factor is the shape of my face. This past Friday I wrote a post about determining your face shape. Mine is oval, but it's changing due to my HRT. My face is thinning which is changing my shape from oval to oblong.
Based on the two earring guides below, there is not much difference in the choices for oval and oblong. The first guide has a few differences and the second guide does not include oval, so I consider oval in the oblong group.
I found this nice storage bin at Goodwill and use it to hold my chip-on earrings. I still use them, but I mostly use my stud-less pieced earrings.
Go shop and have fun.
