there and back again

just found these lovely vintage coach bags going for seriously cheap at my new favourite site LoGE. Don't say I never share anything good... :) It's such a great idea really... essentially a blogshop for people to sell their gently used (or sometimes brand new) items to like minded individuals. Unlike ebay, at least you know your piece is going to go to someone who'll love it as much as you did. And no listing charges so prices are incredibly reasonable. Only catch - if the piece you want has a bunch of other people who want it too then it's the luck of the draw. For that very reason, I've been putting off posting about it actually :p

Anyway, here are some of the great pieces I got recently:

Chan Luu bracelet ($50! these usually got for more than three times that price!)

Frye Campus boots (for the princely sum of $110 + shipping)

So go check it out while I gleefully hug myself and await my newest acquisitions.

The thought of going vegan makes me shudder (what can I say, I just don't like vegetables that much), but if tht day ever came, I'd definitely be looking to get a pair of these lovely flats.
All made to order and with a large number of vegan options, not to mention being really sweet, what more could a vegan want?

well I guess in my case, heels..... clearly I'm really not cut out for this.

bags on the brain

Finally putting in my order for the SC bag with a friend heading to Paris (fingers crossed that she'll be able to get it!) seems to have triggered something in my brain and now all I can think about are bags!

I was tempted by the new Mulberry Edie with the guitar strap, but that got vetoed by both E. and A. so I took that as a sign.

I am wondering whether I can justify this seriously cute lunch sack though... surely that's something I don't already have. The lovely Artifact bags are handmade by Chris Hughes in Nebraska and look like they would survive a nuclear holocast. So at least if the worst happens, you know your lunch will be safe (and stylish). He also does large totes should you wish to protect an item larger than a sandwich. You'll be pleased to know there's a lifetime guarantee too....

poor neglected blog

I've been feeling terribly uninspired recently, and completely swamped (which is probably not unrelated) hence the lack of posts. Still.... I've recently discovered a whole raft of things which I'm super excited about!

First up is new (to me) site The Coveted. Why have I never heard of this site before??? It's just ridiculously fabulous! You know how magazines do those little one pager stories where they ask someone to tell you about their favourite things... well I love those! And this site is like that but so much better cos the people featured about really write about the things they've picked and it's more than a miserable one liner. And of course I say people but what they really are is that special breed of fashion insider with the most amazing closets and fantastic taste...colour me jealous!

better late than never

So I meant to do a post on some of the lovelies I got for Christmas but got interrupted halfway and forgot about it. Still.... it's a rare occasion that I actually remember to take a picture, so figured it was worth going through with it anyway.

In a hilarious coincidence, A. and I got each other iPads for Christmas! What really impressed me though was his ability to keep a straight face when he opened his first... he even managed the requisite level of excitement to allay any suspicisions we might have had. Well, I can't speak for him, but I adore mine! If I could blog properly on it, there would be a lot more posts on this blog than there are, but that's my only real gripe.

Even more shocking, was the second little surprise A. kept back....

loveliness no? :)

my dream

is to have a house that could accomodate a library like this. Not surprisingly, my dream library belongs to the kaiser himself. Some people have all the luck...
