The pair of them shot daggers at me for being such a stupid contrary yoke

Last time the fad for wearing a single earring (a fad which I embraced with GUSTO, Frillseekers) was in, a child came up to me in Dunnes to helpfully let me know that I’d lost one of my danglers. “No no,” sez I, “I was only wearing one, but thanks very much.” The child slunk away back off to her mother and then the pair of them shot daggers at me for being such a stupid contrary yoke the whole way around the ladieswear floor.

Fair enough really. It’s only on mature reflection I can see how bloody stupid it looks. Not, I might add, stupid enough to prevent Celine from sending many models sashaying down the catwalks wearing a solo deco during the brand’s recent Paris fashion week show in advance of autumn 2014. My heart sank a little when I saw the shots.

Will I? Um, I can’t categorically say I won’t, to be honest. But will YOU? To the comments!
