Ear cuffs: painfully cute



We've seen celebs sporting all sorts of things on the red carpet this awards seasons. From capes (LOVE!) to peplum gowns (STILL?), it's only a matter of time before the latest fads hit retailers at prices us Deal Divas can try for ourselves.

While I'm still waiting to hear where I can purchase my Lupita Nyong'o cape, I can share my most recent find: the ear cuff.

Sporting an ear cuff can be tricky. First, there's a fine line between edgy accessory and bedazzled bluetooth headset. Secondly, there's the pain.

The clip that attaches the cuff to the top of the ear is not the most comfortable thing I've worn. In fact, the yellow daisy cuff I purchased at Forever 21 has only lasted about an hour on my ear before my cartilege begged for a break.

But, there is a pay off for the pain. The ear cuff, for now, is unexpected and can lend a new look to an old outfit.

While the celebs can afford diamond versions, there's plenty of choices for us on more of a budget. Take a look at the photos above for a few examples.

And let us know what you think. Are ear cuffs cool?
