MY ARSENAL

Sunday, May 29, 2011

Ar·se·nal
noun

1.a place of storage or a magazine containing arms and military equipment for land or naval service.
2.a government establishment where military equipment or munitions are manufactured.
3.a collection or supply of weapons or munitions.


Most of the time when you think of the term arsenal, you may think of a stockpile of weapons. For me, arsenal is my stockpile of jewelry. I decided to share all of my jewelry pieces with you!!  My friends don't understand why I continue to buy more pieces after owning all of these, but I just can't seem to help myself!! I definitely have some pieces that I've never worn before just because I forgot about them. I'm going to make it my goal this year to make sure I wear more of the jewelry I already own before purchasing new items!!

Wall Storage for my Chunky Necklaces...I use 3M Hooks

Wall Storage for my Long Necklaces

Shelves from Jewelry Armoire for Big Earrings

  Top Shelf of Jewelry Armoire for posts, rings, watches, and small earrings

Bracelet Storage

 Sunglasses Storage
 Short Necklace Storage

 Full Jewelry Armoire Shot - My parents got this for me circa Christmas 2008

Mini Jewelry Box for long Dangler Earrings - This was a birthday present from my parents while I was in College

 Shelves in Mini Jewelry Box for Extra Earrings that just don't fit anywhere else!!


Travel Jewelry Boxes - When I travel I try to stock these boxes or a ziploc bag with the pieces I want to wear
And these are the pieces of jewelry that I have stored in a makeup bag that need to be cleaned with jewelry cleaner.  I'll get to it one day!!


Now to find a place for the jewelry I inherited from my grandmother. At least 3 of these pieces are from my Mommy that she let me steal...take from when I was home in Pittsburgh last week! :-)

Ok, I showed you mine, now show me yours!! (I love that line from Harry Potter - Goblet of Fire). I would love to see what you ladies are packin' in jewelry!
Luv,

  8. @Oh My Dior - Thanks so much! I'm very proud of my jewelry collection. Very clear that I love costume over fine!

    @High Heels & Good Meals - Thank you! I'm running out of room! I think I have to get another armoire

    @Shay - Haha, I try. I was actually going through and organizing that's why they look so neat, but on a normal busy day when I'm hunting for pieces the drawers are not that neat

    @Stacey - Thanks!!! I love all of my pieces. I wish I had close girlfriends here that would love to swap jewelry! That would be fun!

    @Ife - haha, hey girl! Glad I could inspire you!

    @Ria - Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! I'm glad you love my pieces

    @Meredith - Haha, right! It just depends on what you like the best. My makeup stash is pretty unimpressive...I'm just so lazy, I wear the same look almost everyday. I have tried to branch out a little bit with my new color palette from Sephora

  15. You're so organised SHASIE -_-
    How could you be so organised?
    I admire you for this very reason from now on.
    I am the most disorganised person on earth.
    I can't get over the fact that you have kept it so neatly :P

  16. omg Shasie, that collection is gorgeous!! You know how much of a jewelry fan I am, so I really love your collection! I thought I had a lot, but this...this is heaven haha

    I know what you mean about not being able to stop yourself. I, too, have jewelry hanging there, forgotten. I've tried banning myself, but when I see a good Sale and the item is beautiful, I tell myself "But if you don't get it now, it will be sold out forever!"
    haha

    I've only posted my small ring collection here, if you're interested :)

  19. @Francesca - Haha thanks girl! I really need to stop buying jewelry but I can't help it. When there's a great sale or pieces call my name I have to grab them!

    @Marina - Girl I had to organize it because it was a big mess before. I couldn't find anything and my earrings were getting broken the way I was just throwing them in the box and necklaces tangled so I had too! lol

    @Meanz - Thank you! It makes my life easier to have them organized when trying to accessorize an outfit

    @Alexis - Aww, sure you can! It's all about quality vs quantity. I love jewelry so I like to be inspired by other pieces that others have bought :-)

    @Frederica - thank you!! Many years to get to this point and still going strong

    @Gia - haha, girl you are too funny! it's only this organized sometimes. when I'm a rush things don't look so perfect! haha

    @Joey - I'm glad we're on the same page with the hard time stopping!! Thanks so much for
    posting your ring collection. You have great pieces, and I definitely love the Harry Potter Books better than the movies
