Along with the handbag and shoe disease there’s the jewelry disease too.
Now this accessory can really put a hole in your bank account if you aren’t careful!
Everywhere you turn there is a piece of jewelry you need reaching out to you saying wear me you need me. Whether it be a ring, necklace or bracelet, or earrings you need them to accent all the other things you have on. when I look around at the moment I see all the new jewelry for spring and that stuff is like a magnet you can never seem to have enough of it.
Sometimes I ask myself why did I buy that necklace? I only wore it once and it somehow seems that it doesn’t fit to anything else in my closet. You all know what I mean?
You go into the store and see the necklace hanging there and think that will look great with my turtleneck sweater, so you buy it and wear it with that sweater but somehow it doesn’t seem to fit to all the other sweaters you own, and so then the necklace joins the other necklaces hung on a peg in the closet.
There the necklaces wait patiently hoping that someday you will take one of them out and let it see the world again instead of the inside of your dark closet.
Just image hanging around all day in the store with everyone looking at you or touching you(a horrid thought indeed)then someone sees you and says: Wow,I am going to take you home with me and then you are stuffed into a bag of sorts and crammed into another bag if the person is out shopping and then finally you arrive at your new home.
Next you are tried on with whatever it is to be modeled with and maybe shown to others and then -> Wammo you get hung in the dark closet and hope you will be remembered next time the person gets dressed.
Just hanging there hopelessly with all the other necklaces dreaming of discovering the world and only to be let down again and again. Why is life so sad for necklaces?
But this holds true for the other pieces of jewelry in your collection too.
Really now you cannot wear everything at the same time because you definitely may look a bit strange not to say carrying around the weight of the jewelry alone which could be about a half a ton.
I like to give my necklaces a chance because the longer you own them they somehow always seem to come back in style.So you need to keep these precious things.
Then there’s the earrings, which without a doubt most of us own at least 10 pairs and the sad thing about earrings is if you loose one of them then you cannot wear the other one cause it doesn’t match anything else.
But if you feel gutsy like I was a couple of weeks ago and wore 2 different earrings because I lost the one that matched the other one. You get people staring at your ears but they never have enough nerve to say your earrings don’t match. Instead you get a blatant look. And I must say it is rather amusing. Try it sometime and enjoy the reactions you get.
Then there’s the rings some made of gold or silver and then those made of something else and when you wear them a couple of times your finger turns green. But somehow you never bring yourself to part with that ring because you like it. Or there’s rings you have bought years ago and still have.
I must say the styles were interesting years ago and I doubt that I will ever wear them again in my life but then again there’s fond memories attached to those rings so I just cannot bring myself to part with them.And those memories hold true for the other cherished pieces of jewelry in my collection.
Enjoy your jewelry and don’t forget to give each piece a chance instead of keeping it in the dark closet or drawer.
