Aside from requisite trips to San Francisco and Las Vegas, I’ve been a bit of a hermit lately – my unusually social social life caught up with me and I’ve been back to my homey self, and I’ve also been trying to spend less money and cut back on eating out and general outings. I even put myself on a self-imposed ban from clothes shopping. Of course I still manage to find a way to buy stuff, and lately it’s been shoes and jewelry.
House of Harlow 1960 Black Leather Station Necklace
I wanted a necklace to pair with my Geren Ford dress (which I wore this past weekend in Vegas – pics later), but a lot of current pieces were too flora & fauna to go with the rivets. I thought this was perfect in the resin version but I don’t have $100+ to spend on jewelry. Then I found the leather version, which I found for less than half shopping around. I think the leather is more unique anyway.
It’s also not too heavy, and comes off as quite delicate but still makes a statement.
Marc by Marc Jacobs Star Charm Watch
I remember when his fruit pendant necklaces came out in 2006. I wanted one so bad. Fast forward to a couple of weeks ago when I spotted this at a Fossil outlet, where BF was hunting down a courier case he found in San Francisco. It has big gold chain links and a fat little black star – totally me. The best part was it cost nowhere near the $225 retail price. I came back for it on the drive to Vegas and it was still waiting for me!
(At this point I’m realizing that everything I bought has been black.)
Newport News Vintage Suede Wedge
Saw these on a fashion blog and decided I wanted them too. They look really ugly in the picture but are quite cute in person. And they were comfy when I wore them out on our last minute marathon shopping spree in Vegas – I wish all stores close at midnight like they do there.
Pour La Victoire Fiona Shoes
Been wanting these shoes since early spring and then recently found them for less than $100. TASSELS!!! At first I was coveting the Rachel Comey Bergens, but this was at a more wallet-friendly price tag and let’s face it, I’m either wearing sky-high platforms or totally flat flats so this was more up my alley.
