These Pink Lady Cluster Earrings are both simple and feminine. The soft ballet pink is flattering to most skin tones and looks beautiful combined with rose gold and silver accessories.

Ladylike pink pearls embody femininity. Clusters of five gather on sterling silver findings beneath French wires. Cultured freshwater pearls.

Shoes:  Anne Klein
As you may or may not know, I have had several bouts of surgery recently, not the least of which was the forth operation on my knee (after a surgeon botched a routine ACL reconstruction). I also had surgery on my spine, but that's another story.

The crux of this story is that I am now relegated to wearing flats, which is completely depressing when I look down the barrel of a life without heels. I love heels. I mean really love heels. Always have. I used to doodle them in my school books in primary (junior) school and have always has a healthy obsession with them. So now, with a great sense of irony, I am relegated to gravity bound flats.

Oh, I am trying to embrace them. I now have 3 pairs of  ballet flats (rose gold, black and beige) and a pair of pointed sling backs (white). But when I saw the lovely shoes above I realised that I may just be able to cope with flats. I just have to rework my passion and sell all the heels in my closed (I get depressed whenever I go in there), and just not look at the heels when I enter a shoe store (I cried when I saw a beautiful pair last week - I kid you not!). I just need pink ones now.
