Rings on Every Finger


I've adored big rings for as long as I can remember.  My grandma would give me fabulous pieces of costume jewelry.  And I remember an English teacher commenting on my "gaudy" rings back in high school.  The obsession has only grown in recent years... I LOVE wearing a ring on every finger.  Grandma's passed-down costume jewelry, antique store treasures, thrift shop finds.
 

Hey Hey Haleigh and I found a bunch of rings in all their vintage, gaudy glory at a local shop called Tangerine Zebra.  Of course, I had to try them all on for her to snap a pic!  And you can also bet I didn't get out of the store without buying one.  (I bought the big jade one on my middle finger.) 


And I found these three beauties (and that cute little watch) at a hometown antique store over Thanksgiving weekend.  They were cheap treasures, too, for just a few bucks a piece---gotta love a bargain!

Rings are my favorite accessory.  The only problem is that I've accrued such a collection that I don't have enough fingers to display them all on a daily basis!

...And I'm not the only one!


One of my favorite ladies and admired style icons, Florence Welch shows hers off (along with a birdcage tattoo) above.  


Too much?  Never!  I love the gypsy look!

What's your favorite accessory?  And do you prefer one key piece that gets all the attention?  ...Or do you overload in excess like I do with rings?  ;)

i never really liked rings. my fingers swell when it gets hot so it's uncomfortable. :( necklaces, however, are my FAVORITE.

I've always liked the look of big, chunky rings. I used to devour Jacqueline Wilson's books as a kid, and she famously wears huge rings on every finger, and I think that started my fascination.

I absolutely love your style! I love the look although it's nothing like mine, I've just started wearing more jewelry and can't wait to add more to my collection.

DIY Cat Barrier for Under $100 (See-Through, Climb-Proof, and Too-Tall-To-Jump)

ICYMI: I gave up Cotton after deciding that after trying so many things, my two adopted cats Dahlia and Cotton were just never going to get along. Long story short: I missed her. And Cotton's back. And Dahlia's not going anywhere. My heart is big enough to keep trying. And my apartment is big enough that if I need to keep them separated long term (or permanently), it can be done.
I'm going to write-up a separate post about some of the solutions I've tried, how they worked, who they worked on, and what I'll be trying next. But in this post, I wanted to share the main 'piece de resistance' of having both cats in my apartment: an un-climbable, un-jumpable, see-through barrier to separate Cotton and Dahlia.

Blair's Room | Gossip Girl Decor

Manhattan's debutante Blair Waldorf happens to be my favorite Gossip Girl character.  Her behavior and feelings vary from snobbish to sensitive, but she always (except for a few rare occasions) looks and acts totally pulled together.  Her luxurious bedroom is fit for a queen---and is as pulled together as her preppy fashion ensembles.
