when I seriously started crossdressing, about 17 years ago, I often got the urge to get my ears pierced, so I could look good with earrings. Because my girlfriend was against it, it never happened. Clip earrings weren’t that fashionable at that time, so I left it with that.
Four weeks ago I was ordering some dresses from Net_A_Porter.com and stumbled upon some awesome clip earrings. They were designed by Hervé Van der Straeten.
Unfortunately they were way to long (about 14 cm) and the gold color is stil not my thing.

She would make some sketches, after I sent her some pictures of earrings that I found quite attractive. The picture below is also from Hervé Van der Straeten.
Before I went to my jeweler to look at her designs, I stumbled upon a fabulous pair of earrings from one of my fellow Lookbook.nu friends, Minh Nguyen.
