Throwback The ’90s – One Earring Only And The Lennon Sunglasses

The bright side of the ’90s one-earring trend for me was that, every so often; I shared the earrings with my female friends, we split the cost of a pair and each kept a single earring – the whole look at half the price! However, the down side of this was that I ended up […]
