a feathery passion

Yesterday, I received the comment below from a reader - Hooray for readers interacting with me! Thank you! Keep 'em coming, it makes my day!

Peacock feather earrings? Your thoughts? I've seen them at a few boutiques and I have an interest in them, but I have no idea what to wear them with, or if they would look tacky. Curious if it's worth the purchase.

Casey, peacock feather earrings are a must to add to your jewelry boxnot to mention any other type of feather earrings. They are worth the purchase, and can add a subtle pizzaz to an outfit. In my opinion, Gwyneth Paltrow brought them back in a big way when she performed at the Grammy's last year in an all black jumpsuit paired with fuchsia feather earrings.

However, I must make note that while feather earrings are a must, you should be careful they aren't overwhelming and too long on you like these. The last thing you want to do is end-up looking as though there's a bird hiding on your head.

To answer your question about how to wear feather earrings, here a few ways to pair them with an outfit in tasteful and chic fashions. Feathers can add chic texture to an ensemble. Be sure sure the colors of the feathers compliment your outfit if you're going loud with your clothes, or make them your statement piece to a simple outfit, like Gwyneth did.
