Door Knocker Earrings



I loved these earrings so much.

Did anyone else have Anne Klein lion’s head door knocker earrings???

They were the perfect gold earring , especially when paired with a boyfriend length blazer

with shoulder pads and the sleeves pushed up.

What was so wrong with the 80’s???

Everyone knows door knocker earrings are the most flattering.

And shoulder pads…?

Well, lifting the eye UP is never a bad thing.


So, when I saw these knobs at a local cabinet shop,

I flipped, had a flashback

and bought them.

Next quest?

A boyfriend blazer and

some shoulder pads…

I sure had some of those door knocker Anne Kleins..... Anyone who wore them was ALL THAT! Thanks for bringing back the memories.....

Yes! Loved those. I had a teacher who wore them every day, all four years I was in high school.

Oh my... I had ALL of those in my wardrobe! Never thought I could manage without the shoulder pads.
So fun to remember styles of by-gone days.

I had a pair like that too! My GFs and I would call our linebacker pads "Shoulda-ma-pads." You need a pair of dark ray-bans to go with them...

Theresa said...

Oh YEAH, a girl had to have some door knocker earrings:) Cute knobs for memories! Have a blessed day dear Laura, HUGS!

I'm telling you this for your own good...step away from the shoulder pads. No one...not even Alexis...looked good in those!

I had several pairs of door knocker need for shoulder pads, players would be proud to have mine!

I love it- No door knocker earrings but my old house had those cabinet "knobs" in my 1920's house that I think were original to the house. They were in a bathroom. Love the earrings but have never seen them- xo Diana ps...I probably have some old shoulder pads I could send you- Otherwise just stick a maxi pad under your bra strap and no one will be the wiser-;>) xo Diana

In the depths of my bra drawer I think I can find you some shoulder pads. (And no I didn't use them for stuffing!).
