The Non-Fashion Girl's Guide to Fashion: Tassel Earrings

That's like 6 regular milk teas with pearls—the only jewels that really matter.
ART Clare Magno

Trendy fashion. It's the headliner for the holidays; the pièces de résistance; the thief that captures the hearts of all mediocre fashionistas, but as Heidi Klum always says, "One day you're in and the next day you're out."

So how can I, a non-fashionista whose only idea of a trendy piece of wear were those horrible toe shoes that didn't really catch on, ever get a hold of these ever-changing duds?

Toe-tally not worth it.

Don't worry, for I am fully equipped with the latest fashion knowledge from the spellbinding Candy HQ and with my never-ending pursuit for high fashion despite bad credit lines in order to introduce to you the non-fashionista's guide to fashion.

The scorching blaze of the summer sun has once again enveloped the ingenious minds of hot-blooded designers to spring forth their freshest trend: tassel earrings.

New threads – the tassel earrings!

Don't be alarmed by their broom-like appearance or their neck sweeping nature. The beauty of these thread-bound earrings are their simplistic design and eye popping dyes—all of which cost nearly a six hundred pesos! Some even go as far as a thousand pesos (!!!).

They gently sweep your neck.

Okay, real non-fashionista talk: six hundred pesos? That's like 6 regular milk teas with pearls—the only jewels that really matter. I could literally bind up the hair stuck on my shower drain with a rusty wire, loop it around my ear, and still call it "organic high fashion" for zero PHP. I'm just saying that price is pretty messed up, but between the rust in my ears and the hole in my pocket, the hole sounds less mortifying.

6 of these are worth a pair of thread danglers!

But this accessory's chic index is no joke. If you need something to spice up your basic black dress or maybe splash a bit of fun, flirty colors to your 'do, these stringy bohemian tassels are for you. Not to mention they're totally lightweight and can brush off the cookie crumbs on your shirt, too.

Given these circumstances, I highly recommend buying a pair of these babies if you're aiming for the whole off-shoulder I'm-a-hilltop-milkmaid-on-IG-but-really-I-live-in-Ayala-look. They do emphasize the exquisite appearance of sun-kissed skin, perfect for the summer vibe, which we all know is basically all-year round in the Philippines even with the rainy season upon us.

The classic milkmaid look.

What do you think of these tassel danglers, Candy Girls? They're definitely cute and obviously trendy: that's a double check for the requisites to be fashionable. All my strings are attached for them, are yours?

When everything around you suddenly turns dark, the first thing we'd prolly do, as humans, is to find and grab anything that is closest and nearest to us. We'll hold onto them for as long as we can, trying to collect ourselves and gather courage to adjust our eyesights to the pitch black environment that's consuming us minute by minute. And then you'd hear nothing. Your sense of hearing would somehow go off after not seeing anything for quite awhile. You'll let loose. Cry. Panic. You'll be exhausted for fighting your way out. Then just when you're about to stop and give up, you're no longer afraid. There's only this deafening silence and pithole of darkness that's gonna eat you up alive. And surprisingly, you'll make a home out of it.

You'll make a home out of the darkness that when a ray of light suddenly hits you, you'll try to avoid it. You'll try to cover your eyes. You'll try to cover your ears from the voices trying to help you get out of it. You'll try to hide because your mind and body will go against your will to come out and live. Because the darkness that used to scare you, now comforts you in a way you thought has helped you survived life. And you'll try to live. Day by day. In the darkness. Not knowing where to go. Not knowing where to start. Not knowing who is with you. You will try to live until the darkness that once surrounds you is now within you. And everyday, it's gonna be a cycle of subtle torture. But let me tell you a secret. The darkness won't make you whole.

You'll be broken. And in those hair-like cracks, the light will stubbornly fight its way through until it warms you up. Until you realize to check the switch and turn it on. Until you allow other people to help you find your way back in the light. Until you realize you're ready to live in light again. There's a light at the end of this long and dreading tunnel. The only question that matters: will you let them in?
