I just looked it up. The original post, from June 6, is here. It looks like I must have bought it June 8.
Anyway, be forewarned. Rebecca Minkoff bags are not cheap, but if you want the leather strap, you're going to have the shell out another $35 and wait up to four months. Maybe I should have just gone with a Haute Metal Handbag.
Designed by Wheeling, WV native (currently living in Washington, DC) Jillian Joseph, Haute Metal gives you the underground/emerging designer feel of the Minkoff, but you know girlfriend's not going to skimp on the details.
I love the woven handles of this bag!
Joseph has been featured in Daily Candy, Atlanta, and hopefully, I'll get a chance to interview her soon!

Does anyone watch the Rachel Zoe Project on Bravo? I watched it yesterday (instead of organizing my clothes/making Wilson happy), and I have to say, I actually started to enjoy it. The first time I watched, I found Zoe so completely annoying that I could barely sit through the hour. After watching a couple more episodes, however, I may be hooked. And, let's face it, lady does know how to work a look. (One look, that is...)
How can I emulate this with what I have and NOT! spending any money...

It hit me somewhere between the Frosty and the pedicure.
I'm resolving that I now have all of the clothes that I will ever need, and if I purchase anything, it will be a trendy accessory to update a look. Yes, I have made resolutions like this in the past, but I'm ever the optimist, and I like resolving.
I've been really inspired by wardrobe_remix posters on Flickr. Inspired more so by the idea of trying to put items already in your closet together in new and interesting ways. It was much easier to sort through when bits and bobbins posted her picks of the week; so it goes. I know if I had a beautiful little baby I probably wouldn't have the energy for that either.
We'll see how it goes.

Lanvin on sale at barneys.com.
Boston has been really beautiful the last couple of days. I always say spring and fall in Boston remind me of why I love it. It's been around 60-65° and making me giddy with thoughts of walks through sun-dappled trees and outdoor cafes with warm latté. I was in such a mindset last Saturday, when I decided to throw caution to the wind and go shopping. I only stopped in two places really, but that was enough. The first was Anthropologie where I got some lovely, comfortable work clothes.
(Sorry for the image quality, Anthropologie.com)
The other store I stopped in? Optical Shop of Aspen where I found the Chanel Wayfarers I've been lusting after. I don't know if they look good or not, but I like them, and that's all that matters? When I told Wilson that I got new glasses, he asked me if they were sexy. I kind of laughed and showed him my RayBans. I'll let you know later if he finds them sexy, and I'll post pics so you can decide for yourself.
I was intent on posting an outfit last night, but when I got home I fell into my usual routine of getting into my pajamas straight away. Outfit posts to come this week though!
Also coming up this week? One of my favorite private sale communities, Gilt, is having a Marc by Marc Jacobs sale on Wednesday. It's invite only, so if you're interested, please let me know. If they had this dress, I would be happy forever and ever...
Or maybe this for work?
I'm not holding my breath that they'll have these or even newer items, but I'm super excited to see the offerings nonetheless.
I'm also super excited for Miss Laurel who has been getting scouted in San Francisco! I can't even imagine that--possibly because I'm about a foot too short for the modeling industry. Anyway, I wanted to send some good luck vibes out to her. If you haven't seen her blog, check it out!

I accidentally stumbled upon a Boston Fashion Week event last night at the Macy's in Downtown Crossing. Sorry, I didn't remember my camera. The details?
FASHIONISTAS presented by stuff @ night
Macy’s Downtown Crossing, Boston
Catch a special fashion presentation featuring fall favorites from Miss Sixty, BCBGMaxAzria, French Connection, kensie and more. Style tips from stuff @ night Style Editor Erica Corsano. Mini Makeovers from MAC Cosmetics. Complimentary cocktails and appetizers.
I didn't really pay any attention as I was just there to check out some Michael by Michael Kors stuff as I've been liking his work lately. I did not see anything of note. I did find a watch I liked, but I couldn't get a link taken out that night, so I decided to go back for it later. I don't know if I will. I didn't try any of the food or cocktails either.
Sorry to be a gloomy Gus. Hopefully if I get everything unpacked and organized in the apartment, I'll treat myself to a little shopping. Yes, I've lived there a month, and I still haven't unpacked.

Funny, though, that Anthropologie just sent me this accessory catalog FULL of boots!! So I need help. Keep in mind I am a little girl with little feet, so I don't want to look like a kid playing dress-up. OK, let the voting begin!
A) I love the feminine scallop on this one.
B) EEK! They're purple!
C) I can actually see these on my feet.
D) stands for "Do I Dare go that high?"

So beautiful and blingy. I'm sure I'll post more splurges in the next couple of weeks.

I think for the most part I like the shapes and ideas presented in Jacobs 100 plus offerings. If I don't look chubby, I may consider coupling a blazer with loose shorts this spring. Having the exact opposite of model proportions can make trends tricky however. Bright blue was seen in both collections, which makes me think that it'll be one of the big colors for spring. I especially like the MbM dress, but mostly because that cut is flattering on me.
Have you been looking at any of the Spring 2009 runway shows?
Also, I nearly forgot to mention, this marks the 101st post! Hooray! Thanks for reading thus far--more updates and fabulosity to come!

Or maybe a little Chanel? Any thoughts?
