black and white

January 9th, 2013


These are the sunglasses I picked up in the airport on my way to New York and Connecticut for Christmas!  I’m seriously obsessed with them — and I can’t wait to show you the other pair (aviators) I picked up at the same time!  The shape is actually a lot like my Chanel pair — but for about 97% less.  🙂 This pair was $16, and the second pair was $8!

I love finding inexpensive pieces that I wear to death, because unlike my investment purchases, I’m never afraid to carry them around.  If I lose my $16 sunglasses?  Oh well, buy a new pair (or three).  If I lose my $500 sunglasses?  Get ready for some serious hysterics. 

Most of this outfit is actually Christmas presents!  The top was a gift from my parents and the bracelet (which you can’t see that well in these photos, sorry) was an amazing deal I scooped up for myself.  I’d been looking at almost the same style for $250, and I found this one by the same designer for $39! 

In other news: I am in a serious technology funk.  I’ve dealt with a malfunctioning video card on my laptop, an erased backup hard drive, a lost flash drive, and a virus — ALL in the last week.  So I’ve basically been stuck in a crazy whirlwind of trying to back up all my old photos and book drafts in preparation for a complete wipe of my laptop, and I’m tentatively hopeful that things will be back on track soon. 

Foster Grant sunglasses, J. Crew top (similar here), Forever 21 shorts, Ippolita necklace, Kenneth Jay Lane bracelet (from Rue La La), Chanel bag.

    Nice purse! How tall are you, if you don’t mind sharing?

    5’2″ — sometimes I say 5’3″ but that’s a stretch. 🙂 That’s why I need heels!
