Grab of the Week: a pair of ‘80s earrings from Chanel

If there was only one thing we could get this holiday season, these ‘80s Chanel earrings from Carole Tanenbaum’s vintage collection would be it. First off, they are Chanel, so how could anyone not love them? Second, they are gold, have crystals and also a medallion drop. Third, they are simply chi-chi-chic to the highest degree. Who cares about new clothes when you could be wearing these?

Some say diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but actually, we prefer hanging out with couture vintage costume jewellery. So much so that we will be heading over to TNT at Hazelton Lanes this afternoon to scope out Tanenbaum’s world-renowned collection in person. Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, Dior… need we say more?

$1,200. Couture Vintage Costume Jewellery Trunk Show Featuring Carole Tanenbaum Vintage Collection, Thursday Dec. 8, 2-7pm at TNT Hazelton Lanes.
