I don't know about all of you girls, but this week has been difficult, to say the least. To the point where when my phone today I almost burst into tears on the subway (the ultimate in pathetic. It's a phone. For crying out loud--pun intended). Oh, and on that note, should I get an iPhone or another Blackberry? I'm so torn.
So the level of what I can handle writing about today is pretty things that I want. Nothing revolutionary, but I think we all need a little end of week pick-me-up.
Rebecca Minkoff Navajo Studs Flame Satchel, $425 at shopbop.com, Ray-Ban Vagabond Sunglasses, $145 at shopbop.com: I realize that this bag is mildly tasteless and will be completely out of fashion in like 6 months. But I really want it. I like the studs, I like the print, I even like the tassels. The clean, structured shape balances out all that drama nicely, and the shoulder strap is really convenient. How Jackie-O fabulous are those sunglasses? I love the elongated, cat-eye shape and the retro simplicity of the tortoiseshell frame. The shape would be flattering on a variety of faces, and they're just so...cool.
Mary Green Sleeping Beauty Eye Mask, $25 at shopbop.com, Alice + Olivia Tie-Dye Silk-Georgette Dress, $295 at net-a-porter.com: I need one of these. So badly. I can sleep through basically anything, but it's so hard to fall asleep when one of your roommates is cramming late for a test and has a bunch of lights on (just a hypothetical situation). I want a glam, cute solution to having to bury my face under a pillow, and this is it. The pale pink is adorable, but the black gives it a nice edge, and the 'sleeping beauty' thing is so sweet. Also confidence boosting in the early morning. For the longest time I thought this dress was plaid. Which was really cute. But the fact that it's tie-dye that doesn't look overly hippie-tastic or granola-y is kind of awesome. It's like minimalist, abstract tie-dye, and that works so well with the simple cut of the dress.
