At MAC this year, I got questioned about rhinestone stud earrings I wear all of the time. They're not tiny studs, but are by no means huge either. "Do you wear those out all the time?" "Yeah all the time, I didn't even change my earrings from what I was wearing last week because I know I can only wear personal jewelry." "Well, those are a little large for personal jewelry, but I suppose they're alright." Seriously? My normal competition earrings, I would understand if the woman wouldn't want me to wear those, they are designed to attract attention, however, studs? It seemed a little excessive.
