Hi Lovelies! I’m sorry for the lack of posts this week! With a whirlwind weekend in Vancouver, we had a quick stop back home before heading out on the road again, this time to Seattle. I wish I had a lot of exciting new treasures to report, but I depleated my “shopping allowance” on two pairs of premium denim maternity jeans (I just couldn’t face another day of leggings).
I did however, make away with one other purchase…this Marc by Marc Jacobs Classic Q Derby Crossbody Bag. That has to be the longest bag name ever, hey? I spotted this lone little gem on a clearance table and just couldn’t resist! We are headed home shortly, so I promise lots of newness next week. Have a fab weekend! OXO
In anticipation of our upcoming weekend mini-break (which will include shopping of course!) I’ve been doing a little pre-game browsing. I love these sunny pics from the Urban Outfitters Spring 2010 Catalogue and I’m excited to see what this necklace looks like in person.
I’d really love a nice trench. If I wasn’t preggers it would probably be at the top of my Spring 2010 shopping list. It’s such a classic item to have in one’s closet, I can’t believe I have made it this far into my 20′s without one! I love the versatility of the trench, the way it can be dressed up or down and its ability to compliment a wide range of personal style choices. So, while it’s not meant to be for me at this exact moment in time, I will indulge my lustful feelings by posting these fab pics.
With the official start to the new season only 4 sleeps away, what’s at the top of your Spring shopping list??
Burberry Prorsum Spring 2010
I really enjoy a new mug and since Valentine’s Day I have been enjoying this bad boy from Starbucks. Just thought I’d share. Happy Monday. OXO
Happy 1st Birtday to i heart! To celebrate my blog’s birthday, I baked it (errr, myself) some delicious brownies. I just had this bad boy for breakfast, hee hee. It’s been such a fun year of blogging, I really can’t thank you lovely readers enough! I feel like I am making so many wonderful new friends.
So, I know that I have been doing a lot a bag posts lately! I might be obsessed. I hope you guys aren’t getting bored! I will make a better effort to diversify from now on, I promise!!
But seriously, how cool are these totes from Fleabags? I’m such a sucker for a fabulous and roomy bag. Plus, I love the variety of colors to choose from for the leather accent trim.
However, starting at around $440 USD (why is everything I covet so expensive?!), and the fact that the majority of the bag is a light colored canvas, I fear that using this bag would just be asking for heartbreak. As a bit of a spilly-pants, I visualize my potential tote, once pristine, being soiled by coffee, chocolate, lipgloss,pen…and then tears…
I was just tidying up my inspirations folder and came across this photo of the Alexander Wang Donna Bag in Sand. Don’t you want to step into this photo, claim the bag and a day at the beach? I know I do!!
PS – I saved the photo without noting the source. If you come across it, please let me know so I can assign appropriate credit. Thx!
