Jewelry - Out of Sight, Out of Mind

When working with a client in your closet, invariably, the discussion focuses on the jewelry. Do you have any? Like it? Dislikes? Use this? ... What kind of fine jewelry? Suit? Bridge? You get the idea.

Finally, I see it. ¿I can tell you how many times that happens to be a huge ordeal! At least 75% of the time of her jewelry is either in a drawer boxes, scattered in a jewelry box or in another room (boxes, crates or bags)!

Then, of course, ask him if he wears. The answer is almost always ... not really.

I can tell you right now that if your jewelry is planted somewhere or perfectly (or not so well) hidden in boxes of two things are generally true:

* It is too much trouble to get there using it.
* You may have forgotten things.

Third, you may not love enough to keep it handy so you can use. All this could be solved if you can create a way to show your jewelry. There are several things will happen:

* You feel renewed enthusiasm at the thought of wearing it.
* You will be able to find easily - which is probably means that it takes longer, too.
* You will be very aware of what you do not like or does not go with anything or go out of fashion, which makes it much easier to debug.

The question then becomes, how do you show?

Well, as you know, I spend time in a lot of closets and have gone through a number of women who have devised ingenious ways to organize and store your jewelry so it is easily visible.

They are happy to share their ideas with you:

Annie loves to have unusual containers and turn them into jewelry holders. Just go to Bed Bath & Beyond and pick up a silver platter, and voila, you can store your jewelry as you do.

Amy took a shelf in your closet to see their collars attaching hooks. It was easy to see what you have and coordinate with your clothing.

Claudyne lives in a fabulous old with a pole bits running through its walk-in closet. Attached plastic hooks and hang all your necklaces from there. You can easily see what has to dress and accessories is easy.

I also recently found this jewelry organizer of fun online: I have not tried it but it looks promising. If anyone tries it I want to know what you think.

Finally, I have a great cabinet that functions as a full-length mirror I have in my room full of my jewelry! It comes in several wood finishes, and the price has dropped since I got so now is your chance.

No matter how you store your jewelry, as long as you can see and reach it easily. Like most other things when out of sight is out of mind. Let me know what works for you!

Are you eagerly watch shows like "What Not to Wear" and "if only I could have a wardrobe makeover," but you can not see how the transformation will translate for you? Then I can help. During the past 23 years as a fashion stylist in the Boston area, I found that many women are ignoring, hiding, or simply are unaware of their innate beauty. Believe it or not, you do not have to be rich and famous or young, slim look that you dream. Yes, with a little help you can learn to dress with joy and ease.
