Mini Me

by cecylia on November 2, 2012

Do you recall my dresser looking a little more like a jumble sale here? I vowed last month that I’d clean out my wardrobe and start living like a detoxed woman high on vegie juice (OK maybe not the juice part. I’m more of a solids girl). I must admit, the process took longer than I’d hoped. Procrastination in the disguise of laziness came to visit. Many times. It wasn’t until I was completely exhilarated by Pinterest, and the arrival of beautiful jewels from Miss Bibi and Parisian Street Society that kick-started a radical dresser-transformation. So, from this, to this:

还记得我杂乱的梳妆台吗? 上个月我对自己保证一定要把衣柜理干净。无论是衣橱里面还是外面都需要整理。像许多我年龄的女孩,我迟误了很久。其实是懒惰吧:)但当我看了The Coveteur超带有灵感的照片,并受到了Miss Bibi和 Parisian Street Society的首饰后, 我不得不进入清洁状态。你当裁判,你觉得怎样,从到这:

Foreground: Parisian Street Society Cuff / Background: Roksanda Ilincic Dress

On Wagner: Vintage anklet / On Beethoven: Sportsgirl neckcuff, Miss Bibi Pebble-Face necklace / Trinket Box: Miss Bibi rings & Gun brooch

From L to R: Porcelain toilet necklace, Porcelain ring, Beaded ring, Gold Button earrings, all Miss Bibi

On Wedding Photo: Miss Bibi Two Timing necklace / On Bach: Miss Bibi Match stick bracelet & Vintage necklace

 Trinket Box:  Stiletto Ring, Lobster Ring, Thimble Ring & Gun Brooch, all Miss Bibi

 

So how did I go? What do you think of the transformation? I feel quite invigorated by the change. Even Theodore agrees with me that Less really is More!

I hope you’ve been inspired to give your dresser a little TLC this weekend too. Head to Pinterest for more visual stimulation. You can always treat yourself to a beautiful Cire Trudon candle afterwards :)

怎么样? 是不是有点天翻地覆?总之, 我终于能更好的呼吸了:)希望这些照片也给你一点梳妆台启发。愿你过个喜乐的周末!
