I wanted a moto jacket for years. Black, leather, classic. So what if I’m not cool (anymore?) and don’t ride motorcycles.
I knew I was opposed to suede. And I didn’t want a color. Although I had a flirtation with a dark pink Haute Hippie one, because you know me and pink.
The challenge? My long torso and a desire not to spend a gazillion dollars on another coat. I have a lot of coats.
Greeting from Dullsville! I haven’t been posting much recently because my life recovering from surgery has been really boring. As it should be, I guess.
Before my surgery, I began taking steps to overhaul the look of my bedroom. I ordered a new bed and dresser, hoping both would be ready for delivery pre-op (they were not).
Naturally Pottery Barn emailed to offer 9/21, my surgery date, as the first available delivery date.
I eventually removed the packing materials
I want to wallpaper my bedroom.
Translation: I want to pay someone, ideally a professional, to wallpaper my bedroom. Let’s be clear about that.
I found this rich pink wallpaper that I think is gorgeous.
I had a sample sent to me and loved it.
Every time I see a grown woman on the subway
wearing a flower crown
I have flashbacks to my own days wearing one
In dance recitals. Where they belong.
I am shopping for my upcoming vacation.
If I have any defense, it’s that the prices on Ideeli have been SO good. Isn’t this cute? Just $29.
My new coat and dress arrived. Thank you post-Christmas sales!
Aren’t the linings cool?
- I bought it: Kate Spade Suzette coat
- I [wished I] bought it: Kate Spade Etta coat
- Cynthia Steffe Hazel dress
- Pink is my color
- Pink 2.0
You know how people tell you to wait before making a purchase? How most of the time, if you don’t buy it, later you’ll be glad you didn’t spend the money.
I wish I felt that way about Kate Spade‘s Etta coat.
