Blazer: thrifted. Tank: Target. Jeans: Gap. Shoes: Vintage, thrifted.
Speaking of things not fitting right, let's talk about jeans. Hardly wear 'em. Typically I favor the skinnies as I feel they're lengthening to my just-shy-of-petite frame, but occasionally I bust out a wider-cut-- the man finds 'em flattering. And, this pair happens to be one of the very few I've encountered in life that are neither too low, too incredibly long or too waist-pinchy, some of the reasons why I typically avoid pants and go for the skirts.
These are two of my favorite necklaces. When my granny left her home for an assisted living facility, she sent me a package full of jewelry. The keys are in regular rotation, and the camel is one of my all-time favorites. I accidentally left it on while swimming at Coney Island once and when I sat back down on the beach, discovered that the salty ocean water had completely scrubbed my camel clean. As you can see, it's since regained its patina.
This is one of my favorite bags, thrifted for me by Sweets. As you can see, the man has extraordinary taste. Speaking of him (in a roundabout kind of way...)
The shoes I was dying to wear for my lil wedding arrived today! Hooray!!! Previously sold out all over the internets, I decided to follow every single shoe-seller on Twitter for news of restocking. Solestruck made the announcement first and I pounced on it like a tweaked out teen on a fresh can of butane. Raw.
And while we're on the topic of things that are fresh, raw, and possibly addictive, I've started a brand new blog called "Tulle Box". It's wedding-themed, filled with inspiration and great, sparkly finds. It's just a wee babeh now, but I'll be dressing it up with its own little header and sidebar goodies in the coming days.
With bells on,
Have you entered the contest??? There's one more day left to enter and win a 30-day supply of Dr. Perricone's Acai Berry supplement. After a couple of weeks of drinking it daily-- and in concert with near-complete removal of all white carbs from my diet, I have to say that I definitely feel better and more in control. Loading up on protein definitely keeps the hunger swings at bay. Can't say that I've lost weight necessarily, but I notice that my skin has a bit more clarity, probably because I'm eating a lot more fish and walnuts. Om nom.
