Beaded and Bejeweled

   It might be a little too late for a New Year's resolution, so I'm making this a new goal for my wardrobe. I'm always fascinated by cute jewelry and accessories, but lately I've felt my style has been lacking in that area. On a day-to-day basis, I usually throw on earrings and maybe a simple necklace or bracelet. Some days I don't even do that much. My necklaces are cute, but I get bored of their simplicity. Of all jewelry, I love rings the most. I have a small collection of them that I like to wear, but it could use more statement pieces. It's not hard for me to find jewelry I like, it's just challenging to find it cheap enough. Every time I walk in a store, I'll pick out a handful of jewels, chains, and bangles, but when I total the prices up, I resort to buying clothes instead! So, my objective is to broaden my jewelry collection with more bold, edgy, and colorful varieties, whether it's thrifting, beading my own, browsing on Etsy, or rampaging the jewelry tables at Forever 21 this summer.

Some ways I've always wanted to organize my jewelry (but I guess I need more in order to do so!)...

 "I never worry about diets.
 The only carrots that interest me are
the number of carats in a diamond."

  1. Great quote! And idea... I need to get myself some more rings...



  2. it's hard to justify spending a lot of money on jewellery. i wait till i find something i really LOVE so much and that i know i won't get bored of.

    have a great week ahead! x

  3. I feel the same about jewelry! I always feel like accessories always liven up an outfit, but I can never justify spending a ton of money when I can buy clothes instead! I need to make an effort to buy some more accessories too! And I love the pics of the jewelry organizers, so cute! Love your blog by the way! New follower here! :) Come visit me over at :)

  4. I'm a huuuge jewelry junkie myself. I wear a silver ring on all but three of my fingers :) You should check out ebay for lots of jewelry, or even cheap statement rings, there are soo many and a lot of them are really awesome!

  5. Great choices. Really makes me want to go for some more jewellery. And I love the Mae West quote!

  6. I really try to use my jewelry often, but definitely don't make much of an effort during the work week.

  7. I love that Mae West quote. I've always wanted to store my jewelry in porcelain tea cups - it reminds me ever so slightly of Alice in Wonderland. Love!

    Your jewelry choices are divine, darling. I'm obsessed with cocktail rings myself - if you can't see them from twenty feet away, they're not big enough!! :)
