bejeweled: my love affair with costume jewelry!

I absolutely love 'costume' jewelry... fun little baubles can instantly spruce up an outfit and make me feel extra dolled up on a special occasion or can just make a regular day feel like a special occasion.  Here is my collection... I keep a number of pieces on display in my bedroom as shown here... I also keep some in my closet (check my closet post out here!).

Usually what I keep out in this space is what is on regular rotation.  It's so fun to stand here each morning and choose what I will adorn my outfit with!





Never underestimate the power that a small bobble can have on an outfit and on your mood!  And it's usually a very inexpensive way to spruce up your wardrobe.  Here are some pieces I am loving...

GOLD



BOLD



NEUTRAL

But don't feel like you have to stick with one style or theme... that's what makes accessories so fun - you can go for a little bit of everything!

Jill - I have that same F21 peach teardrop necklace on the right. What in the world do you wear it with? I bought it because I loved it but I haven't managed to wear it with anything yet. Thanks for any ideas. Stephanie

Okay, I am using this as inspiration! I wore my first piece of "big" jewelry today and felt very liberated. It's like I had to do less planning of my hair and outfit, because the jewelry took over - amazing! Nice post!
