As I’ve noted before, I’ve always thought huggie earrings were the most comfortable to wear at work — they’re so close to the ear (hence the name) that you sidestep the “is it appropriate for work” issues you sometimes get with dangly earrings, but with more of an interesting look than you often find in stud … Read More about Coffee Break: Multi Huggie Earrings
Oooh: I am drooling over most of Nak Armstrong’s jewelry over at Barneys, including these gorgeous mosaic huggie hoops.
