bits and baubles

Top to bottom: vintage Monet enamel bracelet, F21 stackable rings keeping my vintage ring company, Martin & Osa beaded headband

I'm so optimistic about this headband business that in a fit of blind faith, I decided to wash my hair and shower tonight, which will leave me with no choice but to rock it with a messy bun tomorrow. The pristine vintage Monet bracelet from the '70s was a birthday gift, and one of those pieces which I never knew I wanted until I opened it and realized it's what I had wanted all along. The epitome of the perfect gift. Thanks, mom.

Also, the shoes below are rushing via UPS into my lonely, desperate arms as we speak. I tried them on at the Neiman Marcus sale before Christmas in a size too small and they were still pretty comfortable thanks to the hinged footbed. So, a few weeks and a Shopbop sale later, they will be mine. I'm thinking they'll blend seamlessly with the 70's vibe I'm feeling for Spring. Wide leg jeans, striped sailor shirts, lacy tunics, long necklaces, and chain-strap bags will surely dominate my wardrobe in the coming months.

  2. Cool, but how vital to us are these sort of luxury accessories?

  3. I'm going to chime in here and say that luxury accessories are absolutely, positively vital to my happiness and self-worth. I'm a shallow person.

  5. Those shoes are hottt I love all your Miss I'vegotajob new shoe purchases and that bracelet is perrrrfect!

    As for my furry friend, I treat him like a dog and have been doing OK with training him, but sadly all my good work is constantly undone by my flat mate who is his owner. She puts him in a furry coat made for a teddy bear, his 'walks' with her consist of going downstairs to starbucks and then to the pub and being allowed to drink beer. No, really.

    It is breaking my heart but we've only just moved in together so I can't really confront her about him just yet. Thankfully she works 9-5 so I get him to myself all day and look after him. If it wasn't for me he'd never go out because apparently twice a week on her days off is enough for him. She makes me so mad! In her old flat, she used to have carpets everywhere so she'd lock him in the bathroom all day and sometimes she's out for like 12 hours because she often goes for a drink after work. I could punch her.

    Rant over!! x
