Etsy Designer Find: Modern Trinkets

I can't wear dangly earrings...just studs. But if I could, I would totally snap up these pieces by Modern Trinkets. Nice bonus: they are under $15 a pair.

This is a trend I can stand behind: tulip skirts. I love the blousy shape that was seen at more than a few Resort 2010 shows.

Here are my favorite examples:

Brazen looks by Alexander Wang and Donna Karan
