“whoever said money can’t buy happiness simply didn’t know where to go shopping.”
– bo derek

a few of my lovely girlfriends {and blogfriends} have successfully convinced this homebody into her high heels and red lipstick for a little design mag launch party this evening.
not sure what to wear, i turned to my shopping wishlist that i’ve been adding to these past few weeks – some skinny zip cargos here, a glittery vest there, some all saints goodness and a fierce pair of booties. yes please!
no. 1
hecia cropped shirt via all saints, $120
no. 2
ankle zip skinny surplus pant via old navy, $34.50 
{i got it on sale for $19 in store yesterday….NO JOKE!}
no. 3
denim “love” tote, via gap, $34.99
{it’s even cheaper in store 😉 }
no. 4
bead studded waistcoat via topshop, $135
no. 5
leaf connector ring via forever 21, $4.80
no. 6
norkus peep toe bootie via aldo, $110
but my pocketbook, taken hostage by this little wedding of ours, would only let me get those cheap chic skinny zip surplus pants. so, off i went, into the depths of my closet and unearthed that playful alexa for madewell dot blouse, a cozy cashmere grey cardi, my favorite denim apc tote and those trusty pierre hardy grey boots o’ mine.
how about you, my favorite fashionable friends? what brands and pieces are sitting on your wish list this season? give me another excuse to go shopping!
