Big Hoop Earring Inspiration from Basketball Wives!

Here on Everything She Wants, I strive to promote positivity or at least harmless fun.  So I'm a little ashamed to admit it, but "Basketball Wives" is one of my reality TV guilty pleasures.


"Basketball Wives"-inspired hoops for sale on Etsy.

Cat fights and glass slinging aside, the ladies (and I use the term loosely) of Miami often make bold fashion statements -- most notably with their huge hoop earrings.  Recently, I've been more on a stud and small hoop kick and haven't rocked big earrings regularly since I was struck by Jody Watley's signature hoops in high school.

What's all the hoop-la?  Me with my new hoops. 

But Evelyn, Jennifer and the rest of the gals have inspired me to give statement hoops another chance.  So I picked up a pair of huge silver hoops by Nine West at Filene's Basement (my Mom would be proud).  And if you want a pair of bling-accented hoops like the ones worn on "Basketball Wives," just let  your fingers do the Googling.

  1. basketball wives earrings are so pretty! I don't know if they would work on me though, but I friends who have worn them and they look great! Do they get caught on a lot of things? That's my one fear of them really...
