First Additions

With two impulse purchases in tow, I haven't exactly followed my new year's resolutions yet. However, I'm exceedingly happy with my latest conquests: a pair of heavy strappy Guess pumps to anchor flirty dresses, and Kate Spade's sandpiper bangle bracelet. Someday spring will come. What was your first purchase of the new year?

  10. I love the shoes that you got! I have yet to make a 2011 purchase (I'm being so well behaved this year) but there are a pair of boots I've been drooling over and I really don't think I can hold out much longer.

  14. Honestly, who cares about resolutions when something so beautiful just comes along! :) As my husband always says: "If you fall in love with something (meaning: clothes, shoes, bags, accessories etc.) and you know you can afford it (so I am not talking a new Chanel bag every month :)) you should buy it because you may not see anything like this again when you truly want to find it" So basically, I believe that most impulse buys (unless, of course, you buy tons of things at once and leave them collect dust in your wardrobe) are things we fall in love with and those things tend to give us a feeling of happiness later on, every time we put them on. So congrats on your beautiful finds! Enjoy and feel pretty! x

  17. Well, just spend the next two weeks about how much you love them and all the ways you are going to wear them, and then they wont feel like an impulse.
