Today I tackled my dress jewelry. My expensive items, mostly inherited, are locked away in a safe, which is rather ridiculous really because I hardly ever get to see them let alone wear them. But anyway, over the years I have accumulated quite a bit of dress jewelry to make up for the hidden treasures. I used to wear it but no longer do and it has ended up draped around my beautiful antique dressing table looking cluttered and tangled. See the photo on the left.
So, I got ruthless and at least halved it. I know it will need a second round at a later date but I find the easy-does-it approach best for me. Check out my photos above for what I eliminated and what I kept – for now.
The really crazy thing is that I always wear the few gold items in the image to the right and rarely use even those I have kept.
