Promising review: "I purchased these earrings in green and I was so pleasantly surprised by them! They are adorable and look much more expensive than their price tag. They are lightweight for being a larger earring, and I hardly notice that I'm wearing them. They don't come with backs, but I would recommend getting some — I used some of the inexpensive clear backs (you can find them in packs at most retailers) and they worked great! The shade of green is a very rich color and I have been able to dress them up with heels and down with sandals.

My ears tend to be sensitive so I'm always a little hesitant to wear 'cheap' earrings, but these didn't cause me any problems. I have comfortably been able to wear them for hours on end. Overall, I'm really happy with my purchase and I plan on buying additional colors in the near future!" —Stephanie

Promising review: "I LOVE these glasses! I bought them specifically for a music festival because of how durable and concert-friendly they are. These babies are a little heavier, and so they're way more durable. I also loved that they didn't actually 'dim' the visuals like regular sunglasses would, but just made everything a very subtle crisp blue. They come with their own carrying case which fit nicely in my fanny pack, so I didn't have to worry about losing them again! Even if I did, they're so affordable! Coming back for a second pair :)" —Ali Woodward
