Le Bauble Bungalow

My jewelry is homeless. It’s a terrible thing to admit, but it’s horribly true. I suppose I should have planned ahead when investing in pretty jewelry boxes more suitable for show than for storage; but at the time I didn’t own too many pieces – a few pairs of studded earrings, a necklace or two, a handful of bracelets, and a lone mood ring, to be exact. But things have changed. My collection has expanded to include cocktail rings of all shapes and sizes; chokers and pendant necklaces in a variety of hues; bracelets that jingle and jangle with a mere flick of the wrist; therefore, I need a more spacious living environment for my sparklers. The Mele Faux Leather Croco Travel Jewelry Case is it.

The Mele Faux Leather Croco Travel Jewelry Case is a virtual playground of sorts for our pretties. The deep chocolate outer gives way to an ivory sueded interior, a sublime contrast that creates the same type of high-fashion effect as a black and white décor. Mais non, kittens that’s absolutely not what makes this sassy piece of storage so covetable; so irresistible – it’s simply the icing on the cake; or rather, more in tune with my tastes, the icing on the cupcake.

I like to think of the Mele Faux Leather Croco Travel Jewelry Case in the same fashion that I think of the mullet – “business in the front, party in the back.” Why? The masculine edge it possesses when completely closed up is anything but endearing; but the magic lying in wait has the power to captivate even the biggest skeptic.

A drop front lowers like a glorious staircase in which your jewels serve as the debutantes descending them; two drawers hold secret treasures for your eyes only; earring cards earn a standing ovation from your dangling darlings; one large open compartment and one covered compartment give you the option of concealing your chichi trinkets or displaying them to the world; multiple ring rolls make it simple to store the diamond-encrusted divas you so often display on your digits in style. And to top it all off, the Mele Faux Leather Croco Travel Jewelry Case is portable, making it a flawless way for transporting your knickknacks and frippery anywhere life should take you.

Baubles…I think I’ve just found the ideal new bungalow for you to reside.


Fashionably yours!

That is something I need very VERY dearly! Since moving, my jewelry has been scattered EVERYWHERE. It's shameful really, I should do something about it ASAP!

Couture Carrie said...

jewels as debutantes descending a glorious staircase... what a way with words.

that is one awesome case. i thought it was just a simple brown case, too boring, that was i was thinking. but then the magic lies inside. fabulous!

Leia said...

I've been needing a jewelry case for ages and you have found the p-e-r-f-e-c-t one!

I use a bento box to house my jewelry. Haha

meraldia said...

It seems to be ideal! I also have to do something about my jewelry because they are everywhere in the house!

Emily said...

this is awesome, definitely a good way to keep all your jewelry organized..it reminds me of a pop-up book the way all the compartments unfold :]

The Wanderers' Daughter said...

Love this! Reminds me of the glamorous days of steamer trunks and ocean liners.

FabBlab said...

That is SO chic. You MUST get it.
I have a similar red version. I have to put it to some use. This is inspiring :D

Jaime said...

Wow- I have never seen so many compartments in a jewelry box/case before! Great find :)

Little Red said...

My jewelry is homeless as well. I have a few items that I keep in their boxes. However, most of my accessories are on my dresser or stashed on this shelf thing I have. Definitely not the ideal way to store things!

This jewelry case is perfect though! Great price, it looks lovely, and I love the various compartments!

Fab! :-)

How kind of you to find homes for the lost and lonely.

That jewelry box is too cute (though I think I'd need one that's about three times as big. My collection of costume jewelry is just a bit out of control.)

I.Need.This.

I too am guilty of not having a proper place for all of my jewelery. What a cute jewelery box.

Fashion Court said...

ooh! that looks AWESOME!

Dina's Days said...

Homeless jewelery. Ha ha, I didn't expect all that to come out of that box when I saw the first picture. And the price isn't bad AT ALL.

Caramell said...

The Blonde Duck said...

That looks like the perfect way to organize jewelry.

All you need now is a potbellied piggie!

Nubiasnonsense said...

Wow very fab, I am the worst at keeping my jewelry in one spot but this seems perfect

ashley said...

Ooooh jewelry boxes :) I love!
I recently splurged on a Verailles-inspired box, well worth it, it looks lovely next to my many Juicy perfume bottles. The best accessory for a bedroom.

S.Elisabeth said...

This is gorgeous. Ha I just found a way--hanging it all up on a corkboard.

Kristin said...

I just decided to be a grown up and use the standing jewelry chest that my Mom got me a couple Christmases ago. It will be so nice when all my little pretties have a nice organized home!

Keith said...

Wow. That is really amazing. I think it looks fantastic. Plus it looks like it's got a lot of good storage. Great buy.

Luinae said...

That is BEAUTIFUL! I, for one, have never really seen a jewelry box that I liked- until this one. I store my jewelry in a variety of ways. My earrings are on a beautiful handcarved wooden mushroom, my necklaces hang on the wall, my rings are elegantly displayed, and my bangles/bracelets are stacked high.

Savvy Gal said...

i am filling up jewelry case. you have to get it. it's very nice.

Frock Around the Clock said...

Beautiful and very practical! Get it and enjoy giving your jewelry a home! :) x

Hey,
I just found your blog, and even thought it's on the other post, I saw that dress and immediately thought of one I have: http://www.forever21.com/product.asp?catalog%5Fname=FOREVER21&category%5Fname=dress%5Fdressy&product%5Fid=2064827412&Page=all
It's not AS cute as the expensive one, but it is only $24.80 and it fits way better than it looks on the model, promise. Anyway, thought it might interest you if you're looking for a dress with a little more shape than the Target one, but it does lack the cute ballerina bottom. Just a thought!

Nice !

Jackie said...

Whoa! That's pretty snazzy.
My grandmother had a jewelry...closet. Not actually a closet. But, her jewelry case was HUGE! And wooden. It reminded me of a small wardrobe (like what you'd find in European homes and whatnot)

caroline @ patagonia gifts said...

omg! that jewelry case is to die for! beauty!

eternelmode said...

That jewelry box looks lovely, I could use one of those for my growing jewelry collection. :D
