Economy of Style Closet, Part I

Today, we’re taking a look at where it all begins here at Economy of Style—the closet!  This post is the first of a two-part series on my closet organization.  This first post spotlights my jewelry station.  Arm candy and statement necklaces deserve to sit pretty and safely even when not in use.

I was inspired to launch this mini series after purchasing a few new accent pieces for my closet in Anna’s Linens, a retailer of value-priced home fashions.  Check out the affordable pieces I found in Anna’s Linens and all the essentials in my jewelry storage system.

My Jewelry Station Essentials

1.  3-Drawer Clear/Chrome Box

This clear, 3-drawer box is perfect for housing jewelry, from statement necklaces to watches.  I’m fond of the clear storage boxes because they protect my favorite pieces of jewelry while keeping them visible.

2.  4-Section Acrylic Swivel Organizer

The acrylic swivel organizer is my favorite storage option for bracelets, earrings, rings, and dainty necklaces.  The swivel design is cool looking and makes it easy to access its contents.

3.  Decorative Tray (Option)

A decorative tray functions equally well as an accent piece as it does additional storage.  I use mine to hold my acrylic storage organizers.

4.  Shadow Box

Jewelry as art!  A shadow box keeps my favorite Kendra Scott earrings on display.  Being able to hang the box capitalizes on available wall space as well. 

5.  Kate Spade ‘Say the Word’ Dish

This crystal dish with its whimsical design is gorgeous to look at and serves as a temporary resting place for jewelry when I first remove it at the end of a day.

6.  Gift Boxes

Some retailers have such pretty packaging that even the packaging deserves to be on display.  I like the look of Kate Spade boxes, so I keep some of my Kate Spade jewelry housed in the original boxes.

7.  Artisan Rug ℅ Anna’s Linens

This rug’s print is in total harmony with the design of the decorative tray in the space. The rug is only $7.99 in Anna’s Linens and comes in various sizes too.  

8.  Decorative Candle ℅ Anna’s Linens

The design etched on the glass holding this candle introduced a beautiful texture into the jewelry station.  The candle smells great too.  The candle retails for $3.99 (on sale) in Anna’s Linens.

9.  Oleg Cassini Crystal Paperweight (similar, similar, similar)

This faceted crystal that’s cut in the shape of a diamond adds some bling to the jewelry station.

10.  Soft-sided Hamper ℅ Anna’s Linens

I keep this soft-sided hamper in this section of the dressing room because of its fresh print.  The hamper, which retails for $12.99 in Anna’s Linens, serves as additional storage for anything from blankets to laundry that spills over from my wicker hamper.

    Love the round swivel organizer! After you told me about them I had to get my own and now my bracelets are sitting pretty and air tight on my dresser.

      Yay…that's cool, Yasmin! Now tell me, did you need about 10 swivel organizers? You have serious jewelry collection.

    I have two…but you're right. I may need to buy a third. Bracelets are starting to pile up in front. Problems of a fashionista!

    i ran right out last night and bought both of those organizers! now i have a few questions for you: a. it looks like your watches are wrapped around the original little pillows they came with (maybe michael kors?) – mine won't fit in the drawers around the pillows, unless they're facing up and then i worry that the face will get scratched on the acrylic. any thoughts? b. how do you store your necklaces?

    thanks for the awesome post! 🙂

      Yay…that's awesome, Katie! I hope you enjoy these organizers as much as I do.

      Yes, I kept my watches on the original little pillows that came in the MK watch boxes. To make them fit comfortably in the 3-drawer organizer, I took some of the cushioning out of the little pillows. There's usually an opening in the back of the little pillows that allows you to do that. Hope this helps!
