Real vs. Steal – Prada Resin Rose Crystal Earrings

by Juliana on August 29, 2012

UPDATE: This post has been updated on August 29, 2012. Scroll down to see the new adds.

This delightfully whimsical pair of earrings by Prada remind me of a time when glitter and sparkle were the two best ways to describe my wardrobe and jewelry collection. I remember my treasure trove was filled with pieces I borrowed from my grandmother, as well as the vintage finds I gathered along the way. It’s really quite remarkable to witness fashion making a full circle at last. While reinvention doesn’t quite mean we should recreate your entire wardrobe from the 80′s and 90′s, it does give us the opportunity to have fun with nostalgic looks without looking like we stepped out of a time machine. Considering the instant popularity of this pair, it seems it isn’t just me who wants to play dress up. Of course the fact they are sold out shouldn’t stop you from reliving the memories. You can still buy a very similar pair thanks to one of our readers! Check out what she found below…
