Gold Satchel

I've been searching high and low for a bag just like this. It looks like a Cambridge satchel, but the straps are different and I've never seen such a color on the website. Where can I get this?!!!!!

So yesterday was my birthday and I had the most wonderful day (despite waking up with a wicked headache), spent with my love, Joshua. Here's a peak at one (of the many) presents I bought for myself. Loafer + creeper + patent leather = amazingness! It's safe to say that my boyfriend absolutely despises them, but who cares! Soon I will show you what Josh got me, something I've wanted for a very very long time. Can you guess what it is?

I'm kind of obsessed with this HermĂ©s transparent bag that I saw on TheBlondeSalad.  And it's even better paired with transparent Prada shoes, GORGEOUS!

Fall Is Upon Us

Woke up to wonderful fall weather, my absolute favorite time of year.  Time to break out the scarves!  Oh yea, and my birthday is 6 days away!!


Just a tab bit late on this one...Unfortunately I didn't take as many pictures as I wanted to, but I figured I would share the few photos I did take and the little goodies I scooped up while shuffling down Broadway in Soho (SO CROWDED!).
My best girl Amanda
Insane shoes that I saw a girl wearing in American Apparel...she did them herself!
Urban Decay Naked palette that I've been dying to get

Yup, I gave in and finally bought the American Apparel leather pouch (only because I got Lauren's discount!)
Jeffrey Campbell Clinic
I didn't buy these at FNO, but for FNO.  I wanted to have them so bad, I ended up buying them twice on Solestruck! The first time I picked standard shipping and they weren't going to be delivered in time.  Second time I picked express and they were scheduled to come the day before, BUT I missed UPS while I was at work!  And so, I finally received these amazing shoes the day of only for them to rip my feet up all night (whoever said these were comfortable in the reviews are out of their minds).

DIY: Assorted Bracelets

What to do on a rainy day?  Make bracelets of course!  I ordered these skull beads from Etsy a while ago and finally decided to just add them to a couple beaded bracelets I already had.  I simply cut the bracelet and restrung them with the skull bead, that easy!  The washer bracelet is just a whole lot of washers that I bought from Home Depot and strung on some stretchy string.  The spikey things (not sure what they are) are also from Home Depot, strung on leather cord.  Then I wrapped some neon cord on the ends so the spikeys don't move around. TADA!

Fashion's Night Out

Fashion's Night Out is only 4 days away!  Super excited to get dressed up and hang out with my girls Amanda, Tiffany and Lauren...oh yea, and a day of shopping none stop is always a good thing.  I'm planning on taking as many pictures as possible so stayed tuned for a long post full of amazing fashion.  Do you guys have any fun plans for Fashion's Night Out?

So insane, yet absolutely beautiful.  10 nail technicians came together to create an exhibition called 'Nailphilia' at the DegreeArt galley in London.  Every single one of these pieces blow my mind.  Imagine cruzin' around town with these?
