AvoArt Product Review & a Thick and Fabulous Outfit Post

 Recently, this darling shop AvoArt, contacted me asking if I'd be interested in a product review. I'm so very excited that she did because she's rapidly becoming my new favorite illustrator. She has tons of wonderful goodies & I'm constantly inspired by her.
Now, let's talk about these handmade earrings. WHAT. How the heck are they so cute!? She made them, with what I'm assuming is paper-clay, so they are super lightweight and very comfortable to wear. The color is dashing and vibrant and I've been wearing them nonstop for days. I even slept in them (oops!)
(Ignore the phone & mirror selfie-- still finding it hard to do detail shots without help, heh!) But the earrings are perfect for a little pop. She's selling them currently as Valentine's day accessories, but honestly, I think you could wear them year-round and be quite happy. 
I'm also a huge fan of layering up different (and often clashing) patterns lately. This one is polkadots and florals, but I even wear floral vs. florals now, hah! I have some more fun pattern surprises coming soon, so check back for that! xo 
I snagged two goodies for review & I can't wait to show you the other one soon! What do you think it is? ;) Her packaging is perfect, clean & just wonderful! I would highly recommend this shop to anyone looking for last minute gift-ideas or just a little something for yourself. 
She also has been kind enough to offer Darling Dear readers a 10% off coupon with any purchase of $20 or more with the code "bloglove10" so you're really gonna wanna get in there! 
What do you think, darlings? What's your new (or old) favorite accessory? & Have you tried playing with patterns? What's your favorite pattern combo? I'd love to see! xo
