Hello, lovely lady friends! I thought I would take a minute and share my system for organizing accessories. As you've probably noticed (or not), my clothing style tends toward the minimal. I rarely (like pretty much never) wear prints and tend to keep to the simple and basic. But when it comes to accessorizing, I go a little nuts. I adore jewelry and scarves and shoes and bags. Love them. The bliss that the perfect statement necklace brings to my soul is scary, y'all. Needless to say, I have a ton of the things (statement necklaces). And scarves. And earrings. And tights. And.... well you get the picture. So, what's a thrifty lady to do with all these lovelies, you ask? (Well, maybe you didn't, but you should.)
Until recently my giant, dangly earrings resided in my jewelry armoire along with the rest of my earrings and were generally tangled and difficult to see and crowded. I pinned several cool earring display/storage projects, but didn't have the funds to do any of them. Then while sorting for a garage sale I ran across these two mesh baskets. The silver one came with a gift from Bath and Body Works, I think, and the gold star had ivy in it for years. I think it was a wedding gift. They don't match, but they work and make me happy. So there.
And there you have it. Storage on a dime. Actually not really. The most recent purchase here was the belt rack for my necklaces and that was almost a year ago. The rest of the stuff has been used and re-used in various ways and areas of my house with every move. And believe me, there have been a bunch of them.
So, how do you organize your pretty things? Any tips?
