Accessories Access: Budget-Friendly Earrings for the Jewelry-Obsessed ($15 & Under)!


My biggest style obsession this fall & really for 2015 is earrings, as seen in detail with my Instagram posts (Follow Style Darling Daily @MissAlissaL). I’ve rediscovered my love of the blingy accessory, especially since I’ve recently cut my hair, showing off my collection of studs, chandeliers, hoops, dangles, drops, front-to-backs, & jackets for the every day runway that is life. In an effort to save some cash, but still treat myself here & there, shopping for budget-friendly earrings has been my simple solution when it comes to transforming a look & when I’m in need of some retail therapy. Before I share some of my favorite & elegant picks for not just the season, but really any occasion, I loved the idea of seeking out some extra special inspiration from celebrities who are lucky enough to rock the real thing during red carpet appearances. Jennifer Lawrence, Cara Delevingne, Kerry Washington, Olgy Kurylenko, Chrissy Teigen, Angelina Jolie, Bella Thorne, Rihanna, Taylor Swift, & Jenna Dewan-Tatum.Celebrity inspiration for killer earrings comes in many metals, colors, & shapes, including some jaw-dropping duds for movie premieres, awards shows, & a slew of other special occasions.

Red Carpet Review: Eva Longoria Hosts the 2011 ALMA Awards!


We haven’t seen Eva Longoria in a while, but she definitely made a splash at this year’s ALMA awards, as cohost with George Lopez & honored recipient! Take a look at the images below to see her four gown transformations, as well as other nominees & her Desperate Housewives co-stars who showed up to lend their support.

The one-shoulder lilac gown accentuated the glow of Eva’s skin & smile, but I think my favorite part of the look is her gorgeous drop earrings.  Next, she accepted her award in a sexy, slinky black Moniqe Lhuillier high slit gown with over-the-top hair & jewel embellished high heels.  The details in the burgundy pleated Goldsmith & Klein gown was polished & glamorous, especially with her sleek ponytail.  For the red carpet, Eva donned a lush, coral Oscar de Renta gown with drop earrings & another height-friendly bouffant.

Comic Aubrey Plaza choose a structured LWB with sky-high black satin pumps (I want!).  Alexa Vega kept with the busy bodice trend wearing a white & silver tied gown with a gold miniaudiere & a black-tipped manicure.  Marcia Cross was regal in a navy lace sweetheart gown with a matching sash & clutch by SwarovskiFelicity Huffman posed in a chic LBD dress with a pop of orange at the bust & classic peep toe pumps. Demi Lovato looked like a princess in a blush Maria Lucia Hohan gown with a twisted bodice, showing off some skin. Glee siren Naya Rivera stood tall in a metallic column gown & nude platforms.  Jessica Alba was all-smiles in a post-baby body-conscious belted Michael Kors gown with elegant House of Lavande jewelry.

There’s so much going on right now in Hollywood & we’re on the cusp of award’s season, so stay tuned with all the latest celebrity trends by checking out Red Carpet Review! Who wore your favorite look?  Does Eva always get it right?  Happy Styling!
