treasures, treasures, treasures

Who doesn't love new and wonderful treasures? The recession has caused me to develop a guilt complex about purchasing new things, but luckily, that's where Forever 21 comes in. My best friend Barb and I were there last night looking around for some fun, kitschy items, and when we saw these gems, we knew they were meant to be.

As soon as I saw these shoes, I knew they had to be mine...peeptoe, stacked platform, a good solid heel, and oh-so-much fringe. Mmm. I was equally delighted to see Rumi wearing them on fashiontoast this morning. She has a pretty insane sense of style (and a wonderful boyfriend photographer).

While we were shopping, I had mentioned to Barb that I wanted a little retro-inspired box purse. Here's where you should know that I am a big bag lady. In a terrible, inappropriate way that causes back pain and many knots in my shoulders. But I can't help it...I like to have everything with me all the time! You'll never know when you'll need your purse wine opener, Vogue, red lipstick, or old movie stubs, so you may as well just always have them. In any event, if I'm going to venture away from my suitcase-sized purses, I want it to be kind of sassy and different, like a fabulous bangle. And then we found THIS cute little thing:

I love the gold, and I love the chain option, although I'll probably opt to go without it. Plus, it matches that massive gold cocktail ring (I love bling), and it has the most adorable little latch:

It's like a little crown!

And here's the ring:

They don't call it retail therapy for nothing.

  1. I would love those shoes if they weren't open toed! That purse looks really classic and vintage; both two good characteristics for me. :)
