And let me not forget what else is in my closet: dozens of purses, belts, shoes and some scarves, too.
An argument could be made though that I don't need any more accessories. Kind of like when I was a kid and my closet was bursting with stuffed animals. Whenever I saw a new cutie that I just had to have, my mother would say, "You need another stuffed animal like you need a hole in your head." Hmm. Well, I almost always got the plushie anyway. I could always find room for more stuffed animals.
Now that I'm older, I think it's safe to say that my habit of collecting adorable toys has turned into a habit of collecting gorgeous accessories. While browsing the internet this week, I spied several pretties that I could make space for.
But don't worry, ma, I didn't buy them.
Oh, how I wish I could but the bank account says it just can't be.
But still, I look and I want. So to appease this insatiable desire to buy things I can't justify a need for-- a problem of mine that goes beyond just accessories, to be sure-- I am going to share them here, with you.

There. It's out of my system. (Hopefully.) I hope you enjoyed this fashion fix and have a great rest of your Friday!
Right now, I have to go get ready for a jewelry party. (I hear it's like a tupperware party, but better because, well, it's jewelry.)
Edit: Just got back from the party! Turns out it was a lia sophia party. I went with my bestie and we both weren't sure what to expect since she only knew the host and I didn't know anyone, but it was actually really fun. There was free wine, pizza, snacks and cookies... and jewelry, of course. What's not to love? Unfortunately the jewelry wasn't free but I did end up buying one thing. (I felt obligated! Ok, I wanted to, too. But there was a sense of obligation.) The jewelry was a bit pricey-- there was a colorful, mosaic-style cuff I loved but once I found out it was $198 I had to pass-- but there was a special going on so I got the $68 Elena ring for half off. Marielle, my bestie that is, thinks it looks like fireworks. This pic doesn't do it justice, but it's all I have to show (the real thing will come in the mail soon).
So, what do you think? Worth the price tag? And I really wanted the Robin ring as well, but didn't want to go overboard. Which do you like better?
