Hip Hop Bling




I have my social calendar handy.

You know, in case you've neglected to invite me to your holiday shin-dig.

I have the perfect earrings, and I plan on wearing them A LOT this holiday season.

BUT, I kind of need some invitations. 

Don't worry.  The invitations need not be formal.  I'm easy that way. 

Just don't tell everyone that I'll be wearing the same pair of earrings to your party as I'm wearing to theirs.

It's not that I don't have other options...........I do.

It's just that I really, really like these, AND they are super light (and when I say super light, I mean SUPER light) so I can actually wear them, unlike most other earrings that are too heavy for my pathetically torn ear piercings.

Plus, I have them in both BRASS and SILVER so I can change up my outfits with just the accessory finish.

They look really, really great with these velvet slacks that I snagged last year from Banana Republic (on sale) for the fancy schmancy parties......


Or these jeans (I love me some Rock & Republics) for the more casual parties.



If you'd like a pair, they are available for purchase starting on Novmeber 9th at Twisted Silver (don't forget to use the coupon code found in my right hand sidebar when making your purchase)

OR,

You can enter to win a pair (you chose whether you'd like Brass or Silver).

All you have to do is (separate comments, please):

1.  Tell me what outfit you'll pair these earrings with this holiday season.
2.  For an extra entry, go visit the Twisted Silver blog and tell them I sent you.  (3.) I suppose that while you are there if you decide to subscribe to their blog you deserve an additinal entry, don't you? 
4.  And lastly, for a fourth entry, Tweet "Twisted Silver's Salvage line ROCKS @Twistedrocks!  Giveaway http://angiescircus.blogspot.com/2009/11/hip-hop-bling.html"

Only open to US residents.  Contest ends November 15th at 11:59 pm PST.

As a Twisted Insider, Twisted Silver sent me a sample of the Hip Hop Bling Earrings for Review.

Ohhh Holiday parties... hmm. If it is casual I'd probably pair them with a nice pair of wide leg trouser jeans and a chunky knit sweater, perhaps cowl neck for better attention on the earrings ;)

If it's a dressier party, I'd go with my chic "little" black dress and boots. Can't go wrong with that!

I would pair them with my new pair of Levi's and a black sweater I got at a garage sale this summer that still had the tags on it! It is so cute and I can't wait to wear it. The silver ones would be perfect!!!

I would pair these nice earrings with my long black suede skirt and white satin blouse. I would also be wearing my black suede boots!

Wow this is great. Now I just need to go and buy a new outfit. I have a cute sweater I could pair them with also.

I have a black and white silk blouse picked out to go with my white jeans and black boots. These would be a great finishing touch!

S Club Mama said...

Ok so I couldn't wear them because my ear holes have closed. BUT they would look super cute on either of my sisters who I would totally give these to for Christmas.

My holiday party is in 2 weeks (YES- 2 WEEKS!) so I bought a really cute red glittery tank top with a black short jacket to go over it. These earrings would be perfect for that outift!

We have two "events" in the next two weeks. Funny since hubby and I haven't had a date in at least 6 weeks.

leah said...

Molly said...

Love the silver ones! They would be perfect with a chunky black sweater and leggings! (Because that is totally my fav for the season) :)

I'd do the brass with my sheer celadon babydoll top and sparkly thong.

sassy stephanie said...

I'm such a blue jean whore, so I'd go with my True Religies and something simple, like a cute screened t with the silver ones.

sassy stephanie said...

I subscribe to TS's blog!

Jen said...

Those are beautiful earrings. I would love a pair and we have a holiday party, you can come here. ;)

Actually, I am thinking that my Vegas party outfit would be perfect for a holiday party and with those earrings.

Jen said...

I tweeted about it too.

B said...

I've been losing weight so I'm thinking I'll be in need of a new outfit for the holiday parties this year to go with those new earrings! I can buy the outfit to match!

Cat said...

These earrings are darling! Our holidays are more on the casual side. I'd pair them with a purple banded dolman top with barely bootcut jeans and some yummy chocolate moccasins!

Cat said...

I went to the Twisted Silver blog & left a comment under the "Get The Look: Modern Vintage" & completely fell in love with the Old World necklace!

Debbie said...

I love their gorgeous merchandise! I have frequented their site before. And what would I pair these with? I have a couple of great shirts I got on clearance after the holidays last year that these would look perfect with.

socmama said...

I would love to have some classy new earrings! I just got a horrible haircut, so I need something flashy to draw attention away from my hair. Thanks!

Genny said...

Super cute, Angie. We have the same taste.

Hmmm... I think I'd wear them with jeans, black boots, and a white t-shirt under a black blazer.

Heather said...

Love these to wear with my new red sweater for the family christmas pics.

heatherdemke(at)gmail(dot)com

BoufMom9 said...

I won't be wearing them. I would be giving them to my daughter Stephanie for Christmas (she is much more stylish than i am)
I am sure she would pair them with a pretty flowy top and skinny jeans (because she can. LOL)

ps I tweeted about it too :)

Live.Love.Eat said...

Love the earrings especially since they're super light. My ear piercing holes are very stretched too from all those heavy enamel earrings I wore in the 80s.

girlytwins said...

Kacey R. said...

These are great! I'm all about the dark denim paired with an oversized sweater and boots. ;D

Lee said...

wouldn't these look good with anything?

But I'd pair them with a pair of dark denim and my slung neck black sleeveless shirt.

I bought that shirt years ago for a Christmas party and wear it all the time. Not bad for a $5 buy from Ross that my brother in law picked out.

Honey Mommy said...

I would put them with a dark denim wash jeans and a cute blue print shirt and cute brown jacket I just bought!

How did you know I wanted jewelry for Christmas?!

This and That said...

I posted on their blog...

Honey Mommy said...

To holiday party....hmm...I'd wear my black and white skirt w/ruffled hem and velvet trim, red shirt, my cute rounded toe red mary jane heels and my new silver earrings of course!

Cortney @ evanhaslanded.com said...

These would go perfect with my black wide leg wool pants and my red silk blouse! So cute!

Megan said...

Oooohhh awesome!!

I'd probably wear them with my black slacks and one of my red "holiday" shirts...not that they're old granny shirts...far from it. ;0) They're just reserved for Christmas. LOL

I would wear them but like everything else I have if my daughter likes them they will disappear into her room and become hers

klambo said...

I can't wear alot of earring's because they are often too heavy, so I am excited to know that your earrings are light weight. I would definately pair them with my red satin blouse and my black trouser pants for a holiday splash.
