Something borrowed from Niki's blog, a philosophy I have recently adopted, not so much in terms of earrings and clothing, but in terms or how I choose to live my life...

"When someone doesn’t approve of something I do, I continue doing it unless I too have a problem with it. For example, my earrings, or choice of clothing, or even what I write on my blog. Maybe someone doesn’t like it, but it’s mine not theirs."
