Hi, I’m a secret accessory junky.

by jennine on April 13, 2011

Addicts always seem to be the last to know. You may already know. I thought I was photographing shoes and accessories because they seemed easier than trying to make a dress on a rack look good. But it wasn’t until I laid out all my accessories for my niece to look at, that I realized. Just for traveling, I have a ton of accessories. This is just what I brought with me. Maybe it’s a phase, maybe it’s a new development, but it certainly is something. Accessories do make the outfit, they add depth and character. Hopefully I don’t go overboard too much which is why it took so long to see what was going on in my own wardrobe.

Anyway… since I laid out the goods for my niece, might as well show them all to you… many of these didn’t make it into outfit shots, which is a shame because I wear them quite a lot.

Shown above: Whistle Necklace: Madewell • Rhinestone tennis bracelets: Heirloom •  Lace Collar : Eleven Objects* (more soon) • Brass bib necklace: Vintage • Silver bangles: Tiffany* • Pewter cuff: Market Publique • Beaded cuff: Indian Store • Brass ring: Club Monaco •  Gold braided watch: Heirloom • Beaded choker: Indian Store • Studded bracelet: Target • Rhinestone and chain bracelet: Debut • Crystal necklace: Liz Larios* • Wooden bib necklace: Norwegian Wood • Trout pocket watch: Thrifted Sierra Club (pieces with * are gifts)

Spread the Love!

Will keep that in mind!!! As they deserve a good home!

Yep, I’m a secret accessory junkie too. They’re just so great and easy to change the feel of an outfit.

How do you pack your accessories when you travel? I have a jewelry roll with three compartments but I don’t feel that’s safe enough.

I am an accessory junkie!! I know it! I would much rather shop accessories than clothes and usually that is the first deparment that catches my eye. One of my students asked me last year how many scarves I owned…I didn’t know. The fact that she noticed and that I did not know shows a serious problem!! I undstand…we need a support group…Accessories Anonymous!! BTW…your tribal look is one of my top favorites since I have been blogging…i would wear it in a heartbeat!

i love love LOVE the gold plate necklace in the last picture. I also really like the braided watch and the fish locket necklace. Ahhh, i’m also an accessory junkie, but I’m pretty lazy on most days. I’ll buy a bunch of cute stuff but end up only wearing it once or twice.

Haha I’m an accessories junkie too. Sometimes I’ll deliberately tone down my outfit because I want to wear a certain statement necklace or dramatic earrings.

I’ve been starting to realize this year that accessories are where it’s at and also where I need to beef things up a bit in my closet! I think for years I equated “interesting”, “style”, and “unique” with garments, totally negating the side that a good selection of accessories can have on a smaller wardrobe. I’ve been doing a 30-day, limited wardrobe challenge this month, and man, has it opened my eyes to learning to pair accessories more skillfully into outfits!

I love so many of these pieces that you pictured; especially the big necklaces. As much as I like the romantic, lady-like look, I do love me some statement pieces. ;)

Awesome collection. I also take a lot for travel! Love all your bracelets and necklaces!


DWJ April 13, 2011 at 4:23 pm

You’re also really good about wearing what you have though - I accumulate accessories and just never put them on. You are my accessories inspiration!

Wow, that lace collar is amazing! I really need to find something similar!
The last time I travelled I wore one pair of pants all the time, had 3 t-shirts with me and that’s it. But I had 3 bracelets, 6 rings and5 necklaces! :) ))
