This? This cute little tree that looks so pretty on your dresser and functions to hold and display your jewelry? This is THE DEVIL’S TREE! There are few things in the world of fashion and style that I make hard and fast rules about; capri pants are one, and jewelry trees are another.
What this innocuous looking piece promises to do (stylishly display jewelry) versus what it does in reality (tangles your pieces into a heaping mess of crap that takes hours to disentangle) is at the heart of the issue. And if you’re anything like my clients, you don’t have an extra 25 minutes in the morning to spend fighting with your jewelry tree.
Please exorcise this demon from your life. And in an upcoming post, I’ll show you a much better alternative.
