A New Attitude

{A New Attitude- available on Etsy}
 When I was young, skinny and into driving 40 minutes to the nearest mall, I would head straight for The Limited. They had all the trendiest fashions for a girl in the 80s. A lot has changed since I was 16 but The Limited is still around. Unfortunately, I don't feel that I can fit in there, figuratively and literally. I am not a size that can easily walk into a store like that and find something off the rack. But this past week I discovered that The Limited has launched an online website called Eloquii by The Limited that features beautiful fashions in plus sizes. 

I am usually one who wears very monochromatic looks, no pattern whatsoever. I am more of a jeans and t-shirt girl on most days. But I am strangely attracted to the bright colors, shorter skirts, graphic prints and very polished accessories that Eloquii is offering. (And I just took advantage of their sale to pick up 5 sweaters for under $60! Fashionable and frugal!) 

While poking around I found this one outfit that could use some awesome earrings. So I created my A New Attitude earrings (above) inspired by this look to bring a bit more funk to this already rocking ensemble. These long 4 1/2" earrings are made from steel and rhinestones. I am trying some new techniques and materials and I love that these give me a whole new way of looking at things. A bit of rocker chic to rock out at the next board meeting, don't you think?


Erin Prais-Hintz invites you to go on a journey of inspiration at her blog Treasures Found :: Inspiration is Everywhere. You can view a gallery of her work at or purchase her new line of 'Simple Truths' in her Etsy shop.


  1. Erin, I love these earrings! I'm more of a jeans and tee kind of girl, and my job frowns on dressing up since I work at a warehouse. But sometimes I just want to dress up a bit, or maybe show my little-known dark side. These earrings would be perfect for doing just that.

  2. Great earrings! Love the different layers and the hint of bling ;)

  3. I love, love, love these earrings! A very artistic way to add some sparkle.

  4. I love the mix of metal with girly bling! I would wear these in a heartbeat...oh, and thanks for the link. I am an old 80's Limited girl as well!

  5. LOVE the steel with the rhinestones! What an awesome combination. Makes me want to haul out my steel and quartz! I love annealed steel, it also has a great color and finish when tumbled for a few hours--deep, glossy gunmetal. Love the length on these.

  6. I LOVELOVELOVE these earrings! They're the perfect mix of edgy, simple and classic.
