Rainy Days = Re-JEWEL-ization

Do you have an addiction?

When you think of the word “addiction”, negative associations usually come to mind. You know, like drug addiction, alcohol addiction, sex addiction, etc. … But what about those addictions that are not so bad? Like a shoe addiction, a sweet addiction, or my personal, ACCESSORIES ADDICTION.

I often talk about how I love fashion. I love dressing up, I love mixing patterns, and I love matching colors. But my fashion is NOTHING without my accessories.

In my very first post, I wrote: “Shoes are my obsession, and accessories are my addiction”. I do not think that I have ever made a more true statement. I have so many posts waiting for you, and I think you may be a little jealous when you see some of my favorite items. 🙂

Yesterday, Jackson had a rainy day. Actually, that’s an understatement. It didn’t rain, it poured. Since there was nothing to do but sit around the house, I decided to re-organize my jewelry… Check out the task I had on my hands…IMG_3083Is it true that I have too much jewelry? OF COURSE NOT. If that is case, you can just shoot me now because I will NEVER let go of this bad habit. Between shoes, purses, belts, and jewelry, I have sealed the fate of my finances. I tell my boo, (and those who want to be my boo), that they must be able to support my habit. Mr. Clark Gent has yet to have a problem… and God bless the man who comes after him… He would have HUGE shoes to fill.

So this is how I spend my entire evening. Separating my necklaces and earrings; matching pieces together, and bagging everything up. Good help is hard to find, and when my cunning sister just up and left me, I was forced to complete the task alone. 1 BODY CHAIN, 3 BROACHES, 7 WATCHES, 22  RINGS, 57 NECKLACES, 112 BRACELETS, 121 EARRINGS and 5 hours later, I finished organizing my jewelry.

My mom said I should refrain from purchasing an additional piece of jewelry until the end of the summer. I honestly do not think I can do that. Between Charlotte Russe, Forever 21, Dirt Cheap and Cato’s (surprisingly), beautiful jewels, I can not stay away. Take a look at a three of my favorite pieces, and be on the look out for a full post dedicated to different pieces of jewelry…


Orange and Gold Statement Necklace (Cato’s)


Gold Plate Earrings (Charlotte Russe)


Pink Paradise Betsy Johnson Watch (Belk)

And look at this mess I found while uploading pictures…

I told y’all good help is hard to find… lol… She could not stay to help, but could come back to take pics… #tragedy

Before I go, I want to take our relationship to the next level. You’ve seen me at my best, now let’s see if you’ll stay with me during my ratchet moments…
There, I’ve given you all of me. Can you still love me on the rainy days???? 🙂

Until next time, kisses and more…

    • This is defiantly a collection that did not happen over night… To give a number to the question, about two years…

      I’ve always love jewelry, but it was in recent years that I made a change in the items I love… If you think this is a lot, you should my mothers collection… It shames mine lol…

      And thank you for your comments… They mean bunches to me.. 🙂
