Gracie is very intrigued with this Diane von Furstenberg Ready To Go Printed Tote. The moment I got it out of the box, she was sniffing at it non-stop. I’m guessing the leopard chain prints must have roused the animal instinct in her. Well, actually even I couldn’t resist those prints and that’s why I decided to get it even though I promised myself to stay away from tote bags. This is supposed to be a weekend kinda bag but I actually found the prints safe enough for weekdays too. Well, at the least, I haven’t got poached for carrying it around.
I was getting a bit anxious when the shipment for the Whiting & Davis Gattopardo Essential Clutch that I’d ordered was delayed. I needed it for a dinner this weekend and I was definitely not keen to scramble for accessories at the last minute. So when it finally arrived, boy was I glad. But little did I realize that I was in for another battle. This time, it was the battle of the PAW!
I finally got round to acquiring a wraparound watch, after a prolonged procrastination. Okay, it was on sale at Shopbop and I thought, well, it goes pretty well with the color of the bag I was getting. So into the shopping cart the La Mer Simple Wrap Watch was added and it arrived three days later, fitting both my bag and my wrist very well. Sweet.
I haven’t been shopping at Etsy for a couple of months. As a matter of fact, I haven’t even visited the site for awhile. But I did today and was blown away by these handmade embroidered silk ribbon necklace pendants! Embroidered rose, daisy, iris, lily, daffodil, sunflower, hollyhocks, chrysanthemum, and more! Wow, they are SO SO pretty! I probably never mentioned it but I have a soft spot for any type of embroidery work. Yes, and I even did embroidered craftwork some years back and I’ll show you one of my pieces in a bit if you like to see. （＾＿－）
Satchel was my kind of thing like 20 years ago? Ha. But somehow, the appeal lessened down the years and it took me a lot longer to want to get hold of the classic Cambridge Satchel, often described as “The Brit It Bag”. But I jumped at the chance when I saw this pink shimmering bag in metallic leather at Shopbop and decided to get it with the gift certificates I received as part of my monthly fashion collaboration with the online store.
