As we grow up I think sometimes it seems like, "All work and no play!" I decided to incorporate a little play in my work by playing dress up as I worked yesterday!
I spent a great deal of time organizing all of my costume jewelry.
I had so much fun re-visiting all my little pretties it really felt like playing dress-up, trying on different pieces I had forgotten about.
Little girls never grow up when it comes to sparkly things, or I should say this gal has never grown up on that count!
I started my process by laying my costume necklaces in categories on my bed……….
Pearls(my biggest category)
Ethnic style necklaces
Once I had everything out on my bed I then looked at the categories, and decided which pieces I would wear on a daily basis…………..
I hung my necklaces on hooks that are below a mirror in my closet.
PERSONALITY PROBLEM RESOLVED
Remember I am the girl that does not like too much visual clutter. This becomes a push and pull fight in my brain. I finally succumbed realizing I truly don’t wear it if I don’t see it! Sometimes we even have to make compromises with ourselves.
Next came the bracelets/bangles! I don’t have the perfect resolution for displaying my bangles. Shall we say, we are still in process on this matter.
ORGANIZE BY COLOR
Red, white & blue
Neutrals (tortoise, wood)
For now they are hanging on my wall shoe rack. It actually works really well, but I am afraid I might need the space for my summer sandals so this will probably be changing……..
I have organized my earrings the same way for years.
It has proven to be the best way for me to see what I have, and also it makes it so much easier when getting dressed for a special occasion……
……I use clear divided boxes that are sold for embroidery threads. (See today's sidenotes on my sidebar.)
This has worked well for me for as long as I can remember. It is so convenient to just pull out the box of items that will work well with my outfit.
PINK,GREEN & BLUE
SPARKLY RHINESTONE & PEARLS
I still have more to do in my closet, but I am making some good progress!!
Next: Summer shoes and sandals will be coming out of their boxes and replaced with my winter shoes.
To Be Continued!!
