A little materialism never hurt anybody. If anything, it made them happier.

I don't know if I can live without this coat. I have been scanning the hillsides for the perfect trench! - I've climbed every mountain, forded every stream, followed every rainbow, and have finally found my dream (trench).

books books books

Oops, I took a long-ish vacation and forgot to tell you.

But I just stumbled across this new-ish book from Elizabeth Gilbert and am so excited to pick up a copy! "Eat, Pray, Love" was so-so, but I enjoyed "Stern Men" and feel as though this new book was written for people just like myself, so I might just have to take a trip to the library, seeing as how I am too broke to go buy it. But regardless, I will read it!

Isn't that sad?

rocky times

Omg. So in love.

Couldn't find that Cole Haan clutch in the right color, so uh, yeah. No go. I really should just take a picture of it myself and post it but good lord that would be far too much work, and what am I made of, time?

Well, actually, seeing as how I do ah, nothing at work, I could. Nah.

Anyway, loving these sparkly drops. How unique, right! Conversation piece!

P.S. Margaret Elizabeth is my new top pick for jewelry. So beautiful.

what a snake.

You know what? Somehow it's already Monday. I don't know about you, but I'm not quite sure where my weekend went. It zoomed off to the weekend afterlife without telling me. Oh well. Anyway, somehow, on the MIA weekend, I jumped on the snake bandwagon.

So in other words I've become obsessed with snake-print, snake design, snake whatever. Just not real snakeskin.

Um, ew.

Anyhow, crazy about these earrings, and equally crazy about a fabulous citron snakeskin envelope clutch I discovered in Cole Haan this weekend. Totally going to try and find it online to show you guys. Ugh. Love.

Citron is coming back, by the way. I just decided. Tell your friends.

P.S. Christmas in ... 5 days? Right? Holy moly.

a worthy weekly indulgence

I usually try to keep the Worthy Weekly Indulgences relatively affordable, so I know this one's pushin' it, but it's such a steal!!!! I have been lusting - positively lusting - after this belt for far too long, and it's out.of.stock.

I will happily part with $58 of my hard-earned dollars (let's not mention how many hours it would take me to work to earn them!!) if EmersonMade kindly got this belt back in stock!!!

Please and thanks!! Ohmygod.

koukla mou

Really loving these gorgeous earrings from Koukla Mou. My mother has a pair of the gold ones and I desperately want to snatch them!! Right out of her ears!!

If you're still looking for that perfect holiday-party dress, then look no further. These favorites of mine immediately reminded me of a few favorite movies...sort of...whatever let's just go with it.
Channeling the baroness from "The Sound of Music"? Yep. Check.

Wishing for that sequined look like Alicia-bitch-longlegs from "Confessions of a Shopaholic"? Find yourselves some gloves, too! And a nice chunky hardware belt. Ugh, love.

it's only monday??

Given that it's Monday and I've just downed an entire cup of coffee without even realizing I was drinking it, I think it's time to set my sights on something else. I'm feeling somewhere WARM, perhaps??? And this boppy little bag reminds me of pirating the waters, basking in bright susnhine and fighting off parrots.

God, the weekend can't come fast enough. No screw that, summer can't come fast enough.

a worthy weekly indulgence

As always, Snoozer Loser NY has the best scarves.


Head over heels for this GORGEOUS navy and gold scissor scarf. LOVE.

You all know about me and simplicity. So it really should come as no surprise that I've fallen for this beautiful, dainty necklace. I would wear it all day, every day! It would become a part of my aura.

Love this print. It's been awhile since I've posted anything nautical...oh the shame!!

spark spark sparkle

Decisions, decisions. I do love a good gold sparkle on my nails. Thank you, Rescue Beauty, for titling a polish after my life motto: "Look Rich, Be Cheap". How true.

god I love shoes.

I am so obsessed with these 7 For All Mankind shoes. I can't stop thinking about them...I even had a dream about them last night. Is this a sign I should buy them?

a worthy weekly indulgence

I love dresses with open, sexy backs. A woman's back has a surprising amount of sex appeal, I firmly believe! Which is why I am loving this simple, sexy dress with a shocking back! And the price isn't too bad, either! The only thing I would be concerned with is the fact that you must go braless! Or you could use those weird suction-cup gel-boob bras. Anyway! What a steal!

1. No. Tell me it isn't so.
2. How is it that, 4 years later, I am just getting wind of this?
3. Why?
4. Did anyone actually buy this?
5. What was she thinking? Does she need to take over the entire world?
