♥Extra-Long Necklaces There was a time when I would never wear jewelry. Now, I can hardly bring myself to leave the house if not decorated with necklaces, rings, bracelets...These are not subtle pieces, mind you. These are statement pieces – disco ball-inspired cocktail rings, charm bracelets that jingle and jangle when you walk (or wave), and, my current personal favorite, extra-long necklaces. Ones that extend way past the bellybutton, like this 44-inch lovely; or this wow-inducing 38-inch wonder. I have worn one every single day this week, and I think I'll do the same next week.
♥Yogurt Passion On Tuesday a friend at work brought me a quartet of yummy Yogurt Passion flavors – coffee, plain, passion fruit, and taro. It was 7:00 in the morning, and I ate it all. It’s not like an ice cream/frozen yogurt type texture. It’s more like a tart sorbet that is completely addicting. And now it is no more. I mean, the shop is still open, but it’s over 60 miles away from my house, so I will never again have the chance to savor its scrummy goodness. I wonder if they would think me crazy if I requested that they ship it to me. I would be willing to pay top dollar!
♥Razzle Zazzle I don’t think it’s possible to find business cards as cute as the ones on Zazzle. I ordered these, which arrived just last week, and they are the most divine things in creation. Now I’m trying to figure out how I will muster up the courage to part with them – they’re too cute!
♥Double Trouble I have a crush (no, not on a boy – at least not this week), but on two-tone shoes. They are sophisticated. They are chic. And they are dying to be a part of my shoe collection. Not only do these Dolce & Gabbana’s have bows, but I can actually picture the original flapper – Zelda Fitzgerald – trotting down Park Avenue with them adorning her ballet-weary feet. These cute little numbers from Victoria ’s Secret are mary-janes (!) and reminiscent of a pair that I saw Lauren Conrad wearing with distressed skinny jeans and a button-down oxford. A pair that has laced each of my dreams ever since. And these...well, these I can actually walk in without breaking my neck. Besides, they're kind of adorable.
♥Platinum Nail Polish I use Pure Ice: 611 Platinum Nail Polish and it's spectacular. I only have to touch it up once a week, and it's the most decadent blend of snowy white and sparkly silver. The color goes with everything and has such a pretty shimmer. Plus, it looked utterly irresistible paired with my hematite, rhinestone-encrusted cocktail ring. What's not to love?
♥Mail Call If you tell me that you don’t like getting mail, I’ll never believe you. There is nothing more perfect than getting magazines in the mail. Just yesterday, after days of believing that someone else had received my May 2009 issue of Teen Vogue, it finally appeared. It’s a little disheartening that the issue is thinner than usual (first Domino disappears, now Teen Vogue is shrinking?!) but a delightful delivery nonetheless.
What were you smitten with this week?
