Things We Love #3

Friday, January 17, 2014

1. Mary Jane Kitten Heels: These little tan heels by Qupid are an amazing vintage-inspired staple shoe and they're so cheap!  I bought them in green last month to go with my Christmas dress, and now I'm addicted (I feel like I need them in every color!)  Bonus: they arrived really quickly!  I recommend these to anyone needing solid color, vintage-inspired shoes. Additional bonus: they're plain so they go with heavily patterned items quite well!

2. Birdie Dress in Mustard and Purple Floral: I seriously can't snatch this dress up fast enough when Pinup Girl Clothing restocks it. I find myself lurking the site constantly for it.  It's absolutely beautiful.  They also use this fabric in a halter style dress, but I'm not a big fan of halters.  So I'll be over here biding my time until this one restocks!

3. Tattooed Lady Leg Brooch: This amazing leg brooch by Yukitten'me sort of made me giggle, then I realized I loved it.  One of my favorite brooch makers, Luxulite, posted this last Novelty Brooch Friday on Instagram and I know I had to have it.  1) I'm addicted to brooches 2) It's just the right amount of kitsch.  Who doesn't love kitsch?!  Update: I have a problem and purchased this brooch before even posting this.  It's en route... it will be marvelous.

4. I Don't Care About Your Band: What I Learned from Indie Rockers, Trust Funders, Pornographers, Felons, Faux-Sensitive Hipsters, and Other Guys I've Dated:  I think the title alone will make any girl with a history of dating alternative guys laugh internally (or externally depending on how bad your dating history has been... I laughed externally haha).  Several of the reviews I read actually referred to this book as the female's version of High Fidelity.  The author, Julie Klausner, has written for The New York Times and Saturday Night Live (umm, great combo!) I like to throw comical reads in between all the serious ones I gravitate towards, so this has been added to my "to read" list!

5. Made to Measure Bracelet:  I was lurking Modcloth's newly posted accessories when I came across this and died. I'm guilty of an attempt to make jewelry out of measuring tape before.... and it was a DIY-disaster. I think this bracelet is a little expensive (perhaps that's because I'm unrelentingly cheap when it comes to jewelry), but it's a measuring tape bracelet, so it's basically perfect!  I'm crossing my fingers and waiting on a sale!

6. Gold Glitter Josephine Purse: The only reason I haven't purchased this bag yet, is because Pinup Girl Clothing's shipping is a little pricey, so I like to order several things to take advantage of the free shipping (and they haven't had anything I want in stock). Amelia has been eying the multicolor glitter version of the bag and we think they're JUST big enough to fit a book, a makeup bag and a wallet... which is PERFECT! Finding a cute, big purse to fit our style has been pretty difficult, so I hope they don't run out of these while I'm waiting on them to restock some other things.

    1. Oh! I'm so glad you said something then! Is it heavy in an annoying way? I have tiny wrists and a tendency to shed my jewelry throughout a day haha.

  3. I got the multicolour glitter purse! It is definitly big enough for the things you listed!! It actually was bigger than I expected, but I love it! It's like carrying around a big jelly sandal!

    1. I have a red sparkely Lux De Ville wallet, so I thought gold might match it a little better but I absolutely love the multicolor one. & really?! I'm so glad to hear that it's a big bag, I am in dire need!

      How transparent is it? We were trying to figure that out by looking at photos, but that made it kind of difficult.

    2. The multicolour one has red sparkles in it too, so you can pretty much wear it with any colour, but I was having a hard time choosing as well! I just don't wear as much goldy things.

      As for the transparency, it is not THAT see through. You can sort of see there's stuff in there, but hard to tell what the stuff actually is. The sparkles on the multi one are pretty dark.

    3. Oh! Good to know! My purses never match... ever. So I just go with it and hope I can tie things into my outfits by them being generally colorful and weird. haha

      And that's good to know as well, I don't need people knowing when it's lady week :)

  4. Oh how I love that Birdie dress, but I hesitate because I'm not sure how to fit it into my regular wardrobe. I think I could make it work though ;)

    1. My regular wardrobe is a little bit... irregular, so I don't have to think about that much! haha. But I think it could easily be dressed up for dinner or dressed down for business casual, so you totally need one! ; )

    1. Seriously, if it doesn't come back into stock soon (or ever) I'm going to be so sad! I'm usually not a big fan... but this floral... amazing.
