I realize in my outfit posts I don't often focus the photography on my accessories as I could dedicate a whole blog just to my love of jewelry, hair accessories, handbags and shoes. I just can't get enough! The photograph above is most of my necklaces, some bracelets and earrings, I try to keep everything organized... key word is try. I often buy jewelry from clearance racks, etsy, antique and thrift shops. I buy things that tickle my fancy, but I really like silver jewelry as I like the way it stands out against black outfits.
Just a few examples of some of my pieces.
I like to 'frankenstein' things together, essentially I buy pendants and/or chains an add or subtract things to make them my own. My little pliers get a good workout in our house, old rosaries make for good necklaces, I take the cross off, shorten the beads and add a new pendant (like the Sisters of Mercy pictured).
I need a better system for earrings.
Accessories were always something I could afford when I was really struggling financially, it was my way of freshening up an outfit. When I'm stumped about what to wear, I put on a black dress and fancy it up with some accessories, fun stockings and a handbag = I'm feelin' pretty good. Let's not even get started on shoes, I need to be stopped, "Hello, my name is Meagan and I can't stop looking at shoes".
Accessories make my world go round, how do you like to accessorize?
